Product Overview:

The Battery Beak is produced by Cross the Road Electronics.

The Beak works on both Lead Acid and NIMH batteries used in FRC, FTC, and VEX!

This is a battery load tester, capable of delivering an 18 amp load and measuring these battery qualities:
  • Internal resistance
  • State of charge (SOC)
  • Can determine the overall health of the battery
The Battery Beak supports all battery chemistries but has additional features to determine battery health for both Lead Acid and NiMH chemistries and supports a variety of AmpHour/Voltage combinations. This technology takes the guess work out of determining your batteries quality and overall health.

Here is a Tamiya connector adapter to enable this tester to monitor standard hobby market 7.2V batteries.

These battery monitoring results are displayed on a high resolution OLED display:
  • Internal resistance
  • SOC
  • Open-load voltage
  • Voltage at 1 amp and 18 amps
  • Battery status of 'Good', 'Fair' or 'Bad'
The internal resistance measurement is useful in determining if any bad cells are present. When the Battery Beak is used to track a batteries internal resistance over time, it is possible to determine when to take a battery out of service before a failure occurs. The built in powerdown feature allows the Beak to be connected to your battery indefinitely without draining your battery. The housing of the Beak is a durable ABS/Polycarb blend and mates directly to the Anderson SB-50A connector.

Just plug this directly in to your battery cable to test your battery.

Included with this part is the Battery Beak and a stylish lanyard.

Batteries October 8, 2015
Reviewer: from Allenton, MI United States  
I've been looking for a good way to test batteries and have determined that I need both the Battery Beak and a Load Tester to properly test them.

Battery Beak has been great July 27, 2015
Reviewer: Brandon Petersen from Omaha, NE United States  
The Battery Beak has been great for testing out 7.2 Volt batteries that we use for VEX Robotics.  It has helped the students better identify trouble batteries that need to be replaced and find batteries that need to be recharged.

Awesome Product! September 24, 2014
Reviewer: Anonymous Person  
A must for VEX teams. Our VEX teams have so many batteries and this is a great device for checking them all out and going into competition knowing we have a good battery.

Buy one! September 22, 2014
Reviewer: Marshall Massengill from Durham, NC United States  
This is by far the best device for testing FRC batteries at the moment.  Yes, it's expensive but it is worth it.
