- C and D: 1.5V/150mA
- lithium cells: 3V/1mA, 6V / 10mA, 9V/10mA, 12V/10mA, 15V/10mA,
- Dimensions: 3.9" x 2.5" x 1.3"
- Weight: 3.0oz
- Select the correct battery type and voltage with the recessed range
- Move the range selector to the position labeled "1.5V AA-C-D" if you
wish to test AA-, C- or D-batteries of 1.5V
- select the "9V"-position to test rectangular 9V-batteries
- select the "BUTTON CELL 1.5V"-position to test mercury, silver or
alkaline button cells
- select the "LITHIUM 3V"-position for lithium button cells
- select the "1.5V AA-C-D"-position to test nickel cadmium batteries
of 1.25V and read the value on the lowest of the three scales on the
- The value indicated on the meter is the load current drain placed on the
battery during the check.
CAUTION: Selecting the wrong range will yield inaccurate results. You may
also damage the device in the process.
- Place the red probe tip (+) against the positive (+) battery terminal
and the black probe tip (-) against the negative (-) battery terminal.
CAUTION : Mind the polarity indications when testing your batteries!
- Select the correct range (see above). Use the following procedure to
test your batteries:
- Place the battery's negative (-) terminal against the VTTEST7's
negative (-) contact and touch the battery's
positive (+) terminal with the red probe tip (+)
- In order to test rectangular 9V-batteries : place the battery's
negative (-) terminal against the VTTEST7's negative (-) contact and
place the battery's positive (+) terminal against the VTTEST7's positive
- In order to test button cell batteries: insert the battery in the
slot on the side of the device. Make sure the negative (-) pole is
facing up and press the brown switch on the front panel.
CAUTION : Observe the following safety prescriptions in order to avoid all
damage to the button cell being tested:
- Do not push the brown switch when using the probe tips to test a button
- Do not allow the red probe tip (+) to contact the black probe tip (-)
when using the 9V-contacts to test button cells.
- Read the analogue display to determine the condition of the battery.
- Use the upper scale ("REGULAR") for measuring regular zinc carbon
and alkaline batteries.
- Use the centre scale ("BUTTON CELL - LITHIUM") for measuring
mercury, silver oxide, alkaline and lithium button cells.
- Use the lower scale ("NICKEL CADMIUM") for measuring rechargeable
nickel cadmium batteries
