Self-Powered Fast Battery Tester Schematic
Tests 1.5 to 15 Volt cells, Two-LED display, no power supply required
This circuit runs a fast battery test without the need of power supply or expensive moving-coilvoltmeters. It features two ranges: when SW1 is set as shown in the circuit diagram, the devicecan test 3V to 15V batteries. When SW1 is switched to the other position, only 1.5V cells can betested.

Miscellaneous
SW1 = DPDT SwitchBUT = Battery Under TestP1 = SPST Pushbutton
Testing 3V to 15V batteries:
1.Switch SW1 as shown in the circuit diagram.2.Place the battery under test in a suitable holder or clip it to the circuit.3.Wait some seconds in order to let C8 reach its full charge.4.LED D1 illuminates at a constant intensity, independent of battery voltage.5.If D1 illuminates very weakly or is completely off the battery is unusable.6.If D1 has a good illumination, press P1 and keep an eye to LED D7. If D7 remainscompletely off, the battery is in a very good state.7.If D7 illuminates brightly for a few seconds, the battery is weak. This condition isconfirmed by a noticeable weakening in D1 brightness.8.If D7 illuminates weakly for a few seconds but D1 maintain the same light intensity, the battery is still good but is not new.
Testing 1.5V batteries:
1.Switch SW1 in the position opposite to that shown in the circuit diagram.2.Place the battery under test in a suitable holder or clip it to the circuit.3.Wait some seconds in order to let C8 reach its full charge.4.LED D1 illuminatesvery weakly only in presence of a new battery, otherwise is off.5.Press P1 and keep an eye to LED D7. If D7 remains fully off the battery can be in verygood state.6.If D7 illuminates brightly for a few seconds, the battery is weak.
