The ANCEL BA101 can be used to test a wide range of 12V batteries including Starting, Lighting, and Ignition (SLI), Deep Cycled and Marine (Flooded), VRLA or Maintenance Free (MF), Sealed Maintenance Free (SMF), Absorption Glass Mat (AGM), and GEL cell. The major battery standards JIS, SAE, EN, DIN, and IEC are supported. BA101 12V car battery tester can easily, quickly and accurately measure the actual cold cranking amps capability, the health status of the battery itself, and the common fault of the vehicle starting system and charging system.
The BA101 Advantage:
Simple and easy to use
Tests batteries on and off the vehicle
Accurate results in milliseconds
Battery life analysis
Analysis results: Good or Replace
Large easy to read LCD screen
Test results based on JIS, EN, DIN, SAE and IEC Standards
Quick test – inputs battery volume (AH), then shows battery status
Vehicle cranking system test – cranking time, voltage and status
Store the testing result and the print function
Vehicle charging system test—load voltage, unloaded voltage, ripple status, and charging system status
Test Results: Good or Replace
Internal resistance value (m)
Life in percentage (%)
System voltage: 12 Volts
Input voltage range: 9V~15V
Power requirements: No internal batteries required
Capacity: Cold Cranking Amps (CCA), DIN, EN and IEC information relative to battery rating
Five Different Results of Battery Testing
GOOD BATTERY: The battery is without any problem.
GOOD, RECHARGE: Good battery but low current, and recharge before using.
REPLACE: The battery is already at or near the end of its use life, and please replace the battery.
BAD CELL, REPLACE: Battery interior damaged, bad cell or short circuit, and replace the battery.
CHARGE-RETEST: Unstable battery shall be recharged and retested to avoid error.
Is the battery good or does it need to be replaced?
It tests the battery’s CCA (or AH) value, charge (%), voltage (v), internal resistance (Ω), rated, and battery health (%), etc. After a comprehensive analysis of the data, it provides an accurate assessment of whether a battery is good or needs to be replaced. The test result is shown directly by text prompt, giving an accurate display of the battery with percentage and numerical values.
Conductance correlates directly to the battery capacity.
The passive testing method is safe.
Never discharges or drain the battery.
Able to test the condition of the discharged battery.
Consistent and repeatable results.
It provides a unique indication of battery conditions.
Powers up when connected to the battery posts during testing.
It provides checking the Alternator’s charging and Starter’s cranking conditions. It is maintenance free and no internal batteries required.
Multiple Battery Standards Support
It can test by AH and CCA values but also applies to other test standards such as BCI, CA, MCA, JIS, DIN, IEC, EN, SAE, GB.
If your battery standard is AH standard, you can input the AH value to test in the “Quick Test” menu.
If your battery is CCA or another standard, please input the CCA or other value to test in the “Battery in Vehicle” or “Battery out of vehicle” test menu.
Fast and Accurate Reading
It adopts the world’s most advanced conductance testing technology to date for accurate and authoritative test results.
It quickly analyzes the data, usually taking 2-3 seconds to display the results.
Easy to use, it can quickly and accurately identify battery problems.
Print Data Steps
Before using the print data function, it is necessary to connect the tool to a computer via the USB cable. Once ready, please insert the CD to the computer.
Install the USB driver first.
Open the print software, and choose the COM Port NO.
Then choose the function of print data to start printing.
Small compact design, scan faster and indicates test results directly. Even a beginner can use this unit to analyze any 12V batteries healthy, tells you everything about the battery: voltage, charge,cranking power, and how much life is left in the battery (level of Ohm resistance). Does it quickly and precisely.
Much wider test range (100-2000 CCA) and more accurate compared to its competitors. Test results based on JIS, EN, DIN, SAE, CCA, BCI, GB, CA, MCA and IEC Standards.
Provides check the Alternator’s charging and Starter’s cranking conditions. Vehicle charging system test is also available, including load voltage, unloaded voltage, ripple status and charging system status.
The BA101 battery tester is well built with a large LCD display that has white backlight and contrast adjustment, indicates test results directly. no internal batteries required and gets the power directly from the 12V battery.
It’s equipped with a 3.0 feet long cable and made of a very thick flexible insulator, much safer than others selling on the marketplace. There are 4 buttons on BA101, The up/down button for scrolling the menu. The Enter and Exit button allow for navigation back and entering menu. Two Years Warranty Guarantee.
