Takeaway: Fast readings, basic, easy to read charts, versatile

The battery tester measures 4.25" x 2.25" x 1" thick. The orange positive contact slides to accommodate a number of different sized batteries like AAA to D. The gauge on this battery tester is an analog needle meter and it doesn't actually tell you the voltage level of the battery. Instead it gives you a general sense of battery health by indicating if the battery is good, low, or needs replacing. A second smaller chart appears below the main chart for use with coin cell batteries. The unit is a bit awkward to hold since the batteries don't "clip" into anything. Instead, you have to hold the unit with one hand while holding the battery and sliding the orange positive contact with your other hand. This is nearly impossible to use one-handed.

It does however accommodate the battery sizes it claims to with the unit sliding just wide enough to accommodate a D battery. One thing to note is to not keep the battery in the tester for too long because it will actually run down the battery. This tester can test 1.5V coin cell batteries, but not 3V batteries like a CR2032. For 9V batteries, use the two contacts on the side of the unit with the positive side of the battery touching the left contact point. Overall, this basic battery tester is versatile and effective for 1.5V and 9V batteries if you don't need an exact voltage reading. The charts are easy to decipher, and it lets me know when batteries need to be replaced.
