PP-8496/U Self Discharge Device w/Capacity Meter

Background

This is a battery go-nogo tester for the BB-390/B or BB-2590/U rechargable batteries.  It works by discharging the battery where the internal fan and load are driven by the battery under test then by pressing the Recall button (while the discharged battery is still connected) the status LED turns Green, Amber or Red depending on battery capacity.  The Recall function is powered by an internal 123 photo battery.

I'd rather have an Amp Hour digital display than the three color LED, but the LED is a much lower cost solution.

Operation

The PP-8496 will not work on batteries that do not have the temperature sensor contacts. 

It also will not work on primary (BA- series) batteries because the plug has the mechanical keying to prevent connection to primary battery connectors.
