The CR2032 tester in action

I dug up this image of the CR2032 tester with a coin cell inserted.

The coin cell doesn’t have to be inserted completely for the tester to work, which reduces test time (no need to mess up/bend fingernails prying the battery out too).

The next best thing to add to this design would probably be a plastic non-conductive ejection system. But i’m not in the business of testing lots of coin cell batteries (yet).
