Commercial Electric Analog Battery Tester ABT-602R is powered by testing battery. If the tester can not measure any batteries (turn on), then you should return and exchange a new battery tester with your purchased receipt. This battery tester has one year warranty.

Yes and No. Commercial Electric Analog Battery Tester ABT-602R can measure 6 Volt, 9 Volt, 12 Volt, 15 Volt and 22.5 Volt batteries. But if you have 8 Volt battery in your golf cart or two 12 Volt battery in series in your recreational vehicle, then analog battery tester ABT-602R can't help you.

The gray button is for testing shirt button type batteries. You stick the battery into the slot on the side of the tester then push down the button to get your reading. The tester should work unless it was dropped. Make sure you have the selector on the correct voltage.

Can it be used to test 6 Volt 5.0 Ah batteries

Yes, but you really need to put a higher load on it, more than the small amount the meter puts on it.

Yes and No. It will test the voltage. But that does not mean the battery is good.

Can you test rechargable NiMh batteries with this tester

Asked by Sprossimus February 5, 2019

Answers

NiMh batteries are rated at 1.2 V per cell so will read just a bit lower on the "Good Scale" than 1.5 V alkaline batteries. I have used the tester for NiMh batteries while keeping that in mind.

Really great price for a very useful battery tester!
I bought this Commercial Electric battery checker to replace a 40 old Radio Shack unit. I like the size, weight & the fact that it has a pull out stand in the back and the test leads have a partial cover which can be taken off if you need more of the metal probe showing (see pic). I find it quicker to test D,C, AA & AAA batteries by putting the - (negative) of the battery on the lower negative metal button (on the left of the meter), and then use the Red test lead for the top of the battery (see pic) The side button battery tester is a nice plus and it's easier to use than trying to hold 2 probes on a tiny button battery! LOL I also like that you can "Zero" the meter with the little screw next to the product logo. The unit needs no batteries and it puts a load on the battery for more accurate testing results. Overall a well thought out tester for a bargain price of under $10!

This Commercial Electric Model# ABT-602r battery tester is the same electronically as the Gardner-Bender GBT-500a with some very important improvements. 1. The Commercial Electric Model# ABT-602r uses a modern surface-mount printed circuit card whereas the Gardner-Bender GBT-500a uses the old style wire leaded printed circuit card. Prior to the creation of surface-mount technology in the mid-1960s, manufacturers used wire leads that attached all the components to locations on the circuit card. With the modern surface-mount technology, the need for wire leads eliminated and circuit cards have become smaller, lighter and more efficient to produce. 2. The ABT-602r meter range knob has a bright yellow background with a big black marker that points to the meter range knob position. This makes it very easy to see so you know that you are on the right range for the battery that you are testing. Whereas the Gardner-Bender GBT-500a has a black range knob with a tiny little black marker that points to the meter range knob position. Its hard to see what range you have set, so its easy to be on the wrong range and run the possibility of frying the Gardner-Bender GBT-500a circuits or the meter movement itself. 3. The Commercial Electric Model# ABT-602r range switch feels much more substantial with definite knob detents or stops for each range. 4. The Commercial Electric ABT-602r comes with an 8 page users manual, this manual is also available on the internet, the Gardner-Bender GBT-500a does not have a users manual and I could not find one anywhere on the internet. 5. The Commercial Electric ABT-602r users manual lists the battery load currents for each battery range. Even though the Gardner-Bender GBT-500a is the same electronically, you must cross reference the Commercial Electric ABT-602r information to the Gardner-Bender meter. I measured the load currents of both of the meters with a digital milliamp meter and the load currents were essentially the same. Attached is a list of the meter ranges and load currents for both the ABT-602r and the GBT-500a.

It's a good tester, its just the leads are pointed so sometimes it takes a lot of dexterity to use it.
