Laser Tools has just released its new Car Battery Tester (part number 6803) which quickly and accurately measures the cold cranking amps (CCA) capability of the vehicle starting battery, also measures battery health and assists in pinpointing common faults in the vehicle starting and charging systems.
The convenient hand-held device tests all automotive starting batteries, including lead acid, AGM (Absorbed Glass Mat) flat plate, AGM spiral wound, GEL batteries, and EFB (Enhanced Flooded Battery). It also detects bad cells. It is reverse polarity protected — will not damage the device, the battery or the vehicle.
The initial battery test analyses battery health status to calculate actual cold cranking capability of the battery; advises whether to charge or replace the battery if necessary and can identify a faulty battery before actual failure.
The cranking test identifies fault or potential faults in the starting circuit including the starter motor itself by measuring increases in starting load torque. Then the charging test checks and analyses the charging system, determining if output of generator or alternator is to normal parameters, and detects under or over-charging.
A great feature is the ability to print out the results — test data can be printed out via your PC or laptop (using the USB lead supplied) or by using the Laser 6804 Thermal Printer. This is designed to accompany the 6803 Car Battery Tester and is a quick and convenient method of printing out the test results which can then be shown to the customer and kept with the service documentation.
The useful and easy to use 6803 Battery Tester will become indispensable in the workshop and is available now at a typical price of £141.98 (+ VAT). The convenient 6804 Thermal Printer is also available at a typical price of £132.08 (both prices plus VAT), but remember to check your local supplier for the best prices and special offers.
