REVIEWS:

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Extremely versatile and accurate means to test. Have used to diagnose charging system problems for years, and it's always found the problem. And it only takes about ten minutes, so it allows me to get to other jobs quickly, and inform customers with an accurate estimate.

Can you tell me why it is not compatible with 6 volt golf cart batteries that are used in scissor lifts. These batteries are usually 220-242 amps.

Asked by: tom baker
SB-5/2 is a carbon pile tester, it puts a heavy load on the battery for 15 seconds to determine if the battery has the output to start a cold engine. A golf cart battery is a deep cycle type, it delivers a much lower current over a long period of time. Carbon pile testers are not advised to test this type of battery. Unfortunately, we do not have anything that would be able to test the deep cycle battery that the golf cart has.

Are these now made in CHINA?   They used to be made in the USA.  Has that now changed?

Asked by: Truther
Thank you for your question. This product is engineered and designed here in the US. In order to keep the retail cost down for the customers, the manufacturing is done in China. We still use the same quality standards and supply the factory with meticulous detailed instructions and standards for exactly how the product must be made. We then thoroughly inspect each unit here in Sycamore, IL where we will either approve it to be sold or deny it for not meeting our quality standards. While we would love to make each unit here in the US, to keep up with demand and maintain reasonable retail costs, we are forced to outsource production of these units. We fully trust the factory and production team we work with to create our productions for the same quality you have always expected from AutoMeter.
