HOW DO I USE THIS TESTER?

Asked by: BENNIE
Hi Bennie, thank you so much for contacting us. The beauty of the SB-5 is it's simplicity. First, connect the positive and negative leads to the battery. You want to use the load knob to provide 1/2 of the battery's CCA rating for 15 seconds (the built in 15 second timer makes this very easy). Watch the voltmeter while you're loading the battery. If after that time the voltage reads under 9.6v (assuming 70 degrees ambient temp), the battery needs to be replaced. If it stays above that, the battery is good.

Hello, Is the volt meter affected by static electricity? I ask because we were testing a battery today and the voltage reading would go up if we brought a hand close to the meter. Our tester is about two years old.

Asked by: Paul3
Hi Paul, thank you so much for the question. Yes, the SB-5/2 meters are susceptible to static electricity. You can leave the meter cover in place and simply wipe the outside surface of the cover with a damp cloth or a cloth lightly dampened with a plastic safe anti static spray.

Sb-5 old manual style, I was wondering if I can purchase a new red front metal panel with all the original wording?? I have re painted the black exterior.. 

Asked by: Jj9900
Thank you so much for the question. Unfortunately, it's been many years since we offered the original style SB-5 and parts like the front panel are no longer available.
