BT-2B TS-2530
Survival Equipment Battery Tester

© Brooke Clarke 2001- 2007


Introduction and General Information

This is a tester for a number of obsolete survival equipment batteries: There are a number of battery connection points: On the bottom is a set of graph cards that pulls out.  This converts the DC Milliamperes reading into an approximate hours remaining.
If the hours remaining are less than 60% (reading of < 0.6 mA) of normal battery capacity the battery should be replaced.
A new battery should read greater than 0.8 mA.

Since all the batteries that this tester was made to test were Mercury based, it no longer has much practical use.
