Channels & Test Modes

Eight independent programmable channels. Each channel can work under different modes and functions independently
Working modes Include:
  • Charge: constant current charge (CC), constant voltage (CV), constant current & constant voltage charge(CC-CV) 
  • Discharge: constant current discharge (CD), constant power discharge (CP), constant resistance discharge (CR)
  • Rest
  • Cycles

Battery Holders

  • Built-in Cylindrical Cell Holder.
  • 8 pairs of alligator clips with cable for universal connecting

Programs & Software

  • The software is included to set various working modes for evaluating cell capacity and lifecycle for all types of rechargeable batteries
  • Limited threshold conditions include voltage, current, time, capacity, negative voltage slope, etc.
  • With real-time monitoring windows and integrated graph/data windows, the testing process can be observed more directly and efficiently.
  • During the test, the software will provide instructions and warnings for assistance.
  • The software  is not compatible with other MTI brand battery analyzers

Test Reports and Curves for Analysis

  • Various graphs and curves can be created by software based on user definition. (Voltage-time curve, current-time curve, capacity-voltage curve, loops times charge/discharge capacity curve, loops times charge/ discharge efficiency curve, etc)
  • Data reports are created by software in excel format. A copy of MS Excel must be installed in order to export data. The user can easily compare the performance of the batteries tested in channels both visually and statistically.

Protection and Auto-recover

  • If the power failure occurs during testing, the system will shut down all the operating channels. Once power is recovered, the system will automatically resume those stopped channels and ensure that the test is normally conducted, so that no cases will lose any data.
  • Voltage upper & lower limit; Current upper & lower limit; Capacity upper limit; Power upper limit; 

Laptop Computer

  • Brand new laptop ( 4GB RAM 128 GB SSD) with MS Window 10 and the latest version testing software is installed and calibrated for immediate use.
  • Notice: We strongly suggest you keep an instant back of the collected data using an external hard drive.


  • CE Certified
  • NRTL certification is available upon request at extra cost


  • Two years limited warranty with lifetime support for the battery analyzer. (Note: MTI does not carry a warranty for the laptop. In case service is needed for the laptops, please contact the laptop manufacturer directly for warranty/non-warranty service.)
