Tool to increase battery sales!

One of the most technologically advanced handheld testers currently available, the BVA260-GM sets the bar for accuracy, speed and ease of use. Using our patented Digital Pulse Load™ technology to deliver a true load test, the BVA260-GM can precisely diagnose the battery, starting and charging system in under 82 seconds. This unit is AGM optimized for compatibility with nearly all battery types. This adds up to a tester that in many cases delivers a superior test result to even traditional Carbon Pile testers. A convenient USB output allows test data to be displayed as an Excel™ spreadsheet for nearly unlimited storage capacity and data analysis.  


  • Tests 6V and 12V flooded and AGM batteries rated between 100-1600 CCA or 10-265 AH.
    Tests starting/charging circuits, partially discharged batteries, and capable of detecting bad cells.
    • Automatically stores results of last 150 completed tests for easy review. Wirelessly communicates to optional test results printer via infrared or outputs to PC via AC-66 USB cable (Included) and AC-62 AMPLink software.
    • Use to Test Every Vehicle that Enters your Shop. 82 Seconds for Peace of Mind for your Customer.
    • Supports battery sales within the dealership.
  • AutoMeter testers only require a single technician to run a full electrical system test due to our on-board 120 AMP True Load testing and fully automatic testing protocol. This eliminates the need to apply inconsistent charging system loads such as headlights, fans, etc. which makes our testers easier to use and more accurate.
    • Charging system test results measure alternator current output, voltage regulation, and diode ripple delivering a pass or fail result.
    • Advanced Digital Pulse Load (DPL) technology - patented test process and algorithm allowing operators of this product to rapidly measure a battery’s ability to provide adequate cranking power necessary to start the vehicle without the need for time consuming calculations.
    • True-Load – This AutoMeter equipment is unique compared with other products on the market in that this tester has the ability to apply a known significant load (True-Load) directly through the tester connections allowing for a more rapid and accurate test.
  • 6 Gauge, 42" leads with professional grade clamps that are field serviceable.
  • Intuitive easy input menu driven operation, transmitted via backlit LCD screen for ease of use.
