PMM takes a look at a couple of the latest additions to Sealey’s range.
BT3000 Bluetooth Battery Tester
Battery and charging system testers come in all shapes and sizes but the newly available Sealey BT3000 offers something rather different, says Sealey. It allows battery and charging system tests from your smartphone or tablet. It will complete fast and accurate diagnosis with the facility to forward the results via email or text to the workshop reception or customer. With fast Bluetooth pairing, the unit is simple to use and can store up to 2,000 detailed test reports. The unit is waterproof and has a 500mm cable. An internal rechargeable Li-ion battery allows testing of vehicle batteries with as little as 1.5V of residual charge.
The BT3000 is suitable for automotive (including Start-Stop), motorcycle, marine and leisure batteries from 6 to 12V and has a CCA range of 25 to 3000A. The charging system test capability is 12 to 24V. The wireless connection range is 10m and the unit is compatible with Apple iOS 8.0 and later, as well as Android OS 4.3 and later. The BT3000 is said to offer ease of use and great functionality just in time for those winter months.
