This is a decent unit for its price if a user understands its limitations and capabilities. The manufacturer could have built in better current loading for each of the types of batteries the unit is designed to test. Placing the user manual online would help potential customers better understand the unit's capabilities by listing the battery load for each voltage range.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Esteban Information Lacking
there is no information regarding the extremely important cell loading used when testing.
when a cell is unloaded it may show a voltage close to the full cell voltage of an unused cell.
when properly loaded, a cell voltage will indicate the true cell health.
This is due to an increase of internal resistance as a cell is used.
a schematic of this device would be helpful but cannot be found.
please indicate the cell loading in milliamps for each switch position.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Tripp Great battery tester
I was looking for a battery tester that could handle all the basic voltages and types of batteries around the home. This tester was much less expensive than many I looked at, but tests everything I've thrown at it so far. It is accurate and fast. For me having the leads is a plus. A great tester at an excellent value! I highly recommend it. BTW, you can't find it on Amazon - Home Depot comes through again!

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Jeff Nice and simple, good value.
Easy to use. Pays for itself easy when you consider the number of batteries used in a household, and how many just go to waste not knowing if they are still good.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by daninokc Great little tester
Worked fine out of the box, with intuitive controls and probes. Tested dozens of batteries in just a few minutes (found 2 dead ones). Great value, was just what I was looking for.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by keno153 worked one time, now pegs itself to right
This is the second one I have had. Green from Home Depot and another one I got from walmart. Both of them just go off the scale when you test any battery.
