Testing times for batteries

The ability to test a battery when a car comes into your workshop could mean an additional sale or a satisfied customer who can see you are doing more than what you are asked. The portable battery tester BAT 131 from Bosch is perfectly suitable for testing 6V and 12V starter batteries (lead-acid, gel and AGM batteries). The cold cranking current can be set as required between 100A and 2000A according to the standards CCA, JIS, SAE, EN, DIN and IEC. The load free test procedure provides fast, precise and reliable measurement results. The battery tester has a robust housing specially designed for workshop requirements. The enhanced user interface enables simple and intuitive operation.
