About ZTS Inc.

• The ZTS Mini Multi-Battery Tester (Mini-MBT) provides a comprehensive means of testing the state of charge or state of power for more than 15 battery types.

The mini-MBT's microprocessor-based design makes battery testing simple - using a patented, high accuracy pulse load test. After a fully automatic test cycle, percentage of remaining battery capacity is indicated on the LED bar display.

Battery types are clearly labeled next to appropriate contacts. There are no settings, and test results are easy to understand. Its small size makes it idealfor the gadget bag, toolbox, or home utility drawer.

Negative test lead/probe conveniently stores in seam at side. Tests NiMH, Alkaline, and Lithium. Padded pouch available separately. Uses 4 AAA batteries (not included). Made in U.S.A.

Battery performance is very important in today's electronic devices. ZTS Multi-Battery Testers compute the battery's actual remaining power capacity using a patented pulse load test.

This pulse load simulates the real power demand that batteries experience during normal operating conditions.

So battery performance is measured, not just voltage or internal resistance. The load is automatically disconnected, so testing will not harm or drain the battery.

Battery Tester

Its does a good job load testing so you know the charge of battery. It would be nice if it would tell your state of health of battery that is what you really need to know. almost any battery will past a load test. State of health would let you know how long battery will last when in use.

Very Good Product


from Aurora, CO  -  Hobbyist/Enthusiast

Easy to use and much more accurate than "voltage only" testers




from Humboldt County, CA  -  Hobbyist/Enthusiast

This is my second. I wanted one in each home, and I was tired of schlepping one back and forth.


Works Great


from Los Angele, CA  -  Semi-Professional

This is the best battery tester I have seen. Very easy to use and very accurate. Works on a variety of batteries. Recommended.


Great field battery tester


from Central Connecticut  -  Hobbyist/Enthusiast

This battery tester fits into camera bag and being light, does not add much weight. I use the Mini-MBT's big brother, the MBT battery tester at home for a larger range of batteries used other equipment. The interface is simple, intuitive and accurate. I find that testing the batteries twice gives a more truer result. The unit saves $ by not throwing away batteries that still have life and can still be used and by identifying if only one battery in a multi-cell application is bad. More importantly, especially for flashes, you know exactly how much battery is left and if the units will last through a shoot.


Great product, simple to use, accurate .


from Dallas,TX  -  Semi-Professional

Simple to use with accurate ananysis of the energy left in the batteries. More expensive than other testers but it keeps me from throwing away partially used batteries because I have more confidence in how much longer they will work.


Great Little Product


from Nashville TN  -  Casual user

Works exactly as the maker describes; very useful product.


handy gadget


from Anchorage, AK  -  Hobbyist/Enthusiast

Obvious use is to determine remaining life of battery. Also use to avoid putting older unused low-power batteries into critical use items


A money saving item.


from Cola., SC  -  Casual user

Had one for several years. Paid for itself in the first few months. Works well. Wish it tested button batteries but can't have everything at this price. Bought three more for Xmas gifts.


Just what I needed


from Boulder, CO  -  Semi-Professional

This battery tester is perfect for letting me know battery condition. Testing them under load is the best way to really know what you have. If I test a NiMh after charging it and it is less than 100% it is suspect. I have a LOT of PowerEx batteries for my strobes and battery packs so this is invaluable.


Works as expected. Awkward to use.


from Nashville, TN  -  Semi-Professional

I would say overall I am happy with this battery tester. It gives me a range so I know how much battery I have left before I start using my speedlight for a shoot. If it is an extensive shoot I may change the batteries, otherwise if I am just out doing some sightseeing I will try and use up my half used batteries. I use a sharpie and mark the percentage left on the batteries and that helps me keep up with them. It is a little awkward to use. It is hard to hold the battery on the little nub and then use the lead to touch to the top while trying to see the indicator. But I have managed and this does give me peace of mind that my external flash isnt going to run out of juice in the middle of a photo shoot.

Questions about this item:

Shopper  Why Did You Choose This?
JESSE M  I read a recommendation somewhere, and it does seem better than other battery testers.
Shopper  is your picture old? ZTS' website shows a different version.
SUDHAGAR M  Hai, the product looks the same as in picture I had earlier purchased this product it is very good but even on short duration of not using, you must remove the batteries, as there are more chances of battery getting leaked… if not using the device for even a short days just remove the battery. Rest performance is amazing! With regards, Kumaran.S.S
