The MBT-1 Multi-Battery Tester provides a comprehensive means of testing the state of charge or state of power for more than 40 battery types. This microprocessor-controlled instrument is designed for commercial or home use and tests popular primary (non-rechargeable) and rechargeable batteries using a patented, high accuracy pulse load test. After a fully automatic test cycle, percentage of remaining battery capacity is indicated on the LED bar display. Battery types are clearly labeled next to appropriate contacts. The negative test lead/probe conveniently stores in seam at side. It’s easy to use, and test results are easy to understand. Tests NiMH, Li-Ion, alkaline, lithium, coin cell, button type and more.


  • Computes State of Charge (SOC) for more than 40 battery types.
  • Easy to use - no switches or settings.
  • Test battery condition - quickly and easily identifies weak or failing batteries.
  • Patented high accuracy Pulse Load test - battery safe, non-invasive.
  • Measures battery performance under load, not just voltage or internal resistance.
  • Ideal for battery management and cell matching - reduce costs and increase reliability.
  • Made in U.S.A. Patents 6,823,274 - D569285.

Testing batteries:

There are no settings to make prior to testing. Select the proper terminal for the battery you plan to test, then follow these simple steps:

  1. Place the battery’s positive (+) terminal on the appropriate tester terminal. Battery types are clearly labeled next to each contact terminal.
  2. Hold the built-in probe tip firmly against the battery’s negative(-) terminal. If you are using a twin terminal set, for example9-volt, the built-in probe is not used.
  3. Hold contact firmly throughout the entire test cycle (during 'running’ LEDs), then continue to hold contact to display the test result.
  4. Lift the probe or battery to end a test. Repeat test for best accuracy.
  5. A blinking 10% LED at the end of the test cycle indicates that the battery is less than 5% capacity.
  6. When testing rechargeable type batteries (NiMH & Li-Ion), it is recommended that the battery be off the charger for at least20 minutes prior to testing.
  7. To test 9-volt batteries, note the polarity then hold the battery against the appropriate twin terminal set.
