SAFETY

DANGER! BE AWARE, THAT LEAD-ACID BATTERIES GENERATE EXPLOSIVE GASES DURING NORMAL BATTERY OPERATION. FOR THIS REASON, IT IS VERY IMPORTANT TO READ AND FOLLOW THESE INSTRUCTIONS CAREFULLY, EACH TIME YOU USE THE BATTERY TESTER.
Follow these instructions and those published by the battery and vehicle manufacturers, and the maker of any equipment you intend to use in the vicinity of the battery. Remember to review warning marks on all products and on engines.

1.1. PERSONAL PRECAUTIONS
√ Ensure that there is another person within hearing range and close enough to come to your aid, should a problem arise when working near a lead-acid battery.
√ Wear safety eye protection and protective clothing. Avoid touching your eyes while working near the battery.
√  Have fresh water and soap nearby in case battery acid contacts skin, clothing, or eyes.
√ Wash immediately with soap and water if battery acid contacts skin or clothing. If acid enters the eye, flush the eye immediately with cool, clean running water for at least 15 minutes and seek immediate medical attention.
√ Remove personal metallic items such as rings, bracelets, necklaces, and watches. A lead-acid battery can produce a short-circuit current that is high enough to weld such items to the vehicle and cause severe burns.
√ Ensure that hands and clothing (especially belts) are clear of fan blades and other moving or hot parts of the engine. Remove ties and contain long hair.
× DO NOT smoke or allow a spark or flame in the vicinity of the battery or engine.

1.2. GENERAL SAFETY
√ Familiarise yourself with the application, limitations, and potential hazards of the tester. Also, refer to the vehicle manufacturer’s handbook. IF IN ANY DOUBT CONSULT A QUALIFIED VEHICLE ELECTRICIAN.
√ Ensure that the tester is in good condition before use. If in any doubt do not use the unit and contact a qualified vehicle electrician.
√ Only use recommended attachments and parts. To use unapproved items may be dangerous and will invalidate your warranty.
√ Keep tools and other items away from the engine and ensure that you can see the battery and working parts of the engine clearly.
√ Determine the system voltage before using the tester.
√ If the tester receives a sharp knock or blows the unit must be checked by a qualified service agent before use.
√ If the battery terminals are corroded or dirty clean them before using the tester.
√ Keep children and unauthorized persons away from the work area.
√ DO NOT disassemble the tester for any reason. The tester must only be checked by qualified service personnel.
WARNING! To prevent the risk of sparking, short circuit, and possible explosion DO NOT drop metal tools in the battery area or allow them to touch the battery terminals.
× DO NOT cross-connect the tester to the battery. Ensure the positive (RED) clamp is to the positive terminal and the negative (BLACK) clamp is to the negative terminal. If battery symbols cannot be distinguished, remember that the negative terminal is the one directly connected to the vehicle bodywork.
× DO NOT use the tester outdoors, or in damp, or wet locations, and DO NOT use in the vicinity of flammable liquids or gases.
√ Ensure there is effective ventilation to prevent a build-up of explosive gases.
× DO NOT use the tester for a task for which it is not designed.
√ When not in use, store the tester carefully in a safe, dry, childproof location.

PREPARATION FOR TEST

4.1. Be sure the area around the battery is well ventilated while the battery is being tested.
4.2. Clean battery terminals. Be careful to keep corrosion from coming in contact with the eyes.
4.3. Inspect the battery for cracked or broken case or cover. If the battery is damaged, DO NOT use the tester.
4.4. If the battery is not sealed maintenance-free, add distilled water to each cell until battery acid reaches the level specified by the manufacturer. This helps purge excessive gas from cells. DO NOT overfill.
4.5. If it is necessary to remove the battery from the vehicle to test, always remove the ground terminal from the battery first.
Make sure all accessories in the vehicle are off to ensure there is no arcing.

OPERATION

5.1. INSERTION OR REPLACEMENT OF LEAD WIRE Refer to fig.1
5.1.1. Remove the cover on the backside bottom of the battery tester.
5.1.2. Insert the connectors which contain a black-yellow pair and a yellow-red pair, in one end of the lead wire into the sockets which can be found when the cover is removed as above. Make sure the colors match between the connectors and sockets as shown in fig.1.

5.2. BEFORE TESTING
5.2.1. Before you test a battery in a vehicle, turn off the ignition, all accessories, and loads.
5.2.2. Make sure you have put 6 x AA 1.5V batteries into the battery chamber. Oxyride batteries are not recommended because of the initial 1.7 Volt output. If the internal 1.5V batteries run out of power, the display will show “POWER LOW”. Replace those 6 x AA 1.5V batteries before starting a new test.
5.2.3. Note that nothing will be seen on the display until the tester is connected to a vehicle battery.
5.2.4. Make sure all battery terminals are clean and wire brush them if necessary. Connect the red clamp to the positive battery terminal post, then connect the black clamp to the negative battery terminal post. For the most accurate results, clamp on the lead part of the terminal only.
5.2.5. Attaching to the clamp or other fixture rather than directly on the terminal could result in an unstable incorrect test result.
5.3. PAPER LOAD Refer to fig.2
5.3.1. Open the clear cover.
5.3.2. Place a new roll in the compartment.
5.3.3. Pull a short length of the paper from the compartment and press down the clear cover to close.
