The F.A.Q. for Argus Bb-sbm12 Battery Bug Starting Battery Monitor (Argus Analyzers)

Update - 3+ Months Of Usage I Bought This And Installed It Per The Instructions - Found An Easy Place To Wedge The + And - Cables In. What I Did Not Realize Was I Inserted A . 050" Gap On The Negative Lead Going To Ground. As A Result In A Few Months It Vibrated A Bit Loose To The Point It Could Be Rotated By Hand. How Did I Notice This This Thing Beeps When Your Battery Life Is Near (or At) Zero!. Alot Of Stuff In My House Beeps But Every Day Leaving The Car I Heard A Beeping - Finally Found It Under The Hood Of All Places. Before Calling The Bomb Squad I Popped The Hood And My 35% Had Suddenly Dropped To 0% Remaining Yet The Car Still Worked Fine. I Found The Loose Negative Caused By Installing The Bug Late At Night Fixed It (btw - Leave It Off A Battery For 30 Seconds As It Counts Down To 00 And It Thinks You Changed Batteries). Then I Put A High Quality Charger On Overnight And Started It The Next Morning. First Start Was 50% Remaining 4th Start Was 42% Remaining And It's Stayed There Ever Since. And No More Beeping. - End Of Update - Prior To The Battery Bug The Most Common Way To Judge A Starting Battery's Health Was To Measure The Minimum Voltage While Starting The Engine. A Logging Voltmeter Clipped To The Battery Terminals While Cranking Was Always An Effective Way To Judge How Much Life Was Left In The Battery. The Battery Bug Effectively Does This And Alot More. When The Engine Is Not Running The Display Alternates Between Battery Voltage And % Life Remaining (my 2004 Battery In 2010 Shows 35% Remaining Which Is About Right I Know Its Time To Buy A New Battery Based On Age. ) With The Engine Running The Display Shows The Charging Voltage On The Battery To Help Rule Out Any Problems With The Alternator And Continues To Show The Battery Voltage With The Engine Off. What I Particularly Like About The Battery Bug Is That It Does Not Produce Erroneous Lifetime Readings Based On The State Of Charge. As An Example Of This I Bought A Brand New Car Which Came With A Bad Battery (1 Dead Cell) - I Had To Overcharge It To Drive It To The Dealer Where They Used Their Dealer Approved Battery Checker That Indicated "battery Is Fine" Since I Had Just Finished Overcharging It To Drive The Car. I Drove Home Left The Headlights On For A Few Hours Then Jumpstarted The Car And Returned To The Service Department Where The Company Approved Tester Showed "battery Is Bad" Which Was Required To Get A Warantee Replacement. The Battery Bug Does Display The Battery Voltage However The Life Remaining Calculations Are Made Based On The Voltage Drop During Engine Cranking So You Must Connect It Then Start The Engine To Get A % Life Remaining Calculation. After That The Voltage And %life Numbers Are Updated Every Time You Start The Engine. For The Price (about 1/10 That Of A Logging Voltmeter) And Simplicity This Offers An Easy To Read And Accurate Representation Of Your Battery's State. It's Unbiased Report Is Much Appreciated Since A Battery Charger Doesn't Affect The % Life Remaining Readout.

My battery had gone dead multiple times, replaced but wanted some way to tell me i had a problem before being stuck with dead battery again. This is an install and almost forget it device. Has an alarm that will go off if there is any problem with battery or alternator charging. I would highly recommend for non-car guy or for the wife-daughter-girl friends cars.

Battery Bug Does Work. Have One On My Bike And Wanted One For The Truck. However This Was Advertised As New But Is Definitely Used And The Package Was Stapled Together. So Be Careful Who You Buy From.

X. Hakala, Bury says

I Was Excited To Try This Battery Monitor Due To Me Consistently Running My Battery Low. I Expected Good Things From This Device Due To It's 4 Star Rating But After Owning It For About 3 Weeks It Is Unusable. It Worked Ok At First Then After A Few Days I Noticed That A Couple Segments Were Not Showing On The Digital Readout. Now After About 3 Weeks The Display Has So Many Missing Segments That It Is Unreadable. What A Waste Of $35! I Don't Think This Device Is Rugged Enough To Sit On A Car Battery Under The Hood. *update 11-12-2010 I Sent This Unit Back To Argus And They Sent Me A New One. It's Been Installed On A Brand New Battery For A Few Days Now And It Is Still Working. *update 12-03-2010 The Replacement Unit From Argus Has Failed! I Need To Squeeze The Unit Hard Between My Fingers For The Display To Show Anything Otherwise The Display Stays Blank. There Is Obviously Some Manufacturing Defect With The Display On These Units. *just So Prospective Buyers Don't Think I'm Somehow Abusing This Thing It's Installed On A Brand-new Autocraft Gold Battery From Advance Auto Using Only The Hardware That Came With It In A 2008 Ford Explorer. I'm Giving Up On This Device. Almost $40 Wasted So Far Including Return Shipping For The First Defective Unit. Now They Cost $55 ! ! Buyers Beware.

It Let Me See That For Whatever Reason My Battery Slowly Declines In Charge Level. . It Began As 84% Then Over A Couple Of Weeks Time Went Down To 69%. Bought New Batteries Now We'll See What Happens. My Car Has Had Chronic Problems With Batteries So This Is Really Saving Me. I Should Never Come Out To A Dead Battery Again. This Will Beep When The Levels Get Too Low. That's The Plan Anyway!

K. Emma, Bremen says

I Have Purchased 3 (three) Of These Units And Only One Still Works Accurately. The Other Two Give False Positives About Battery Failure And Sometimes Drop Down To 0% Health When The Battery Is Just Fine. I Know This Because I Swapped Over The Known Good Monitor And Its Been Reading 70% Or Better The Past Couple Weeks. I Don't Know If I Will Bother To Send These Two Units Back To Argus Or Not But I Should Note They Have Replaced One In The Past For Me From A Cracked Screen From When My Hood Came Down And Hit It ! Make Sure You're Careful Where You Mount This Thing And Always Connect The Leads Directly To The Battery Terminals.

Arrived well packaged, on time, and in good order. It was easy to install, and there have been on problems with it. I have one on each of my two vehicles.

R. Janice, Bradford says

If You've Ever Had An Older Battery Fail On You And Leave You Stranded This Tool Is For You. I Hate To Replace A Battery That's 3 Or 4 Years Old That Still Starts My Car Yet I Feel Uncomfortable Not Knowing When The Battery Is Going To Quit On Me And Leave Me Stranded Far From Home. This Tool Eliminates All The Guess Work. Every Techie Should Own One.

J. Nees, Portsmouth

I have three of these and have not had any problems. The first two are permanently hooked up to my car and generator. Instead of buying one for every other vehicle and piece of power equipment i own, i came up with an idea. All my batteries have a quick disconnect connector for a deltran battery tender: battery tender 081-0069-6 ring terminal harness with black fused 2-pin quick disconnect plug. So, i put a quick disconnect connector on the third battery bug and i can move it from battery to battery. The deltran battery tender kit also comes with alligator clips that have a quick disconnect connector: battery tender 081-0069-4 alligator clips with black 2-pin quick disconnect plug. This allows me to use the battery bug (with either the clips or the quick disconnect connector) on any battery without permanently hooking it up.

D. Parker, St. Helens says

Have Had This Item For 4 Years. About 6 Weeks Ago It Started Beeping. When It Does That You Are Supposed To Replace The Battery. I Wanted To Be Warned When The Battery Was Near The End Of Its Life But I Was Suspicious That The Battery Had More Life Left In It. I Figured I Had More Time And Could Squeeze A Few More Months Out Of The Battery. It Wasn't Like The Car Was Cranking Slowly Or Anything Like That. Two Nights Ago The Car Did Not Start. I Can't Blame The Battery Meter. It Did Exactly What It Was Supposed To. I Was Lucky I Was In My Driveway. Next Time I'll Change The Battery The Moment I Hear The Beeping!

P. Anderson, Wolverhampton

Here In The Extreme South Texas Heat Automobile Batteries Take A Real Beating. People Think It's Cold Weather That Is Hard On Batteries. That's Wrong. Heat Kills Batteries And Down Here They Die Quickly And Without Much Warning. Others Here Have Praised This Product And From What I Read Those Reviewers Were Impressed By The Display. Nobody Mentioned The Alarm. I Feel That Those Reviewers Will Be Sadly Disappointed When They Discover That The Display Can Indicate A "good" Battery That Will Not Start The Car. A Battery Can Read Full Voltage And Not Work In The Car. Just Because The Display Shows You Had Good Cranking Power The Last Time Does Not Mean It Will Start Next Time. As Such I Didn't Expect To Derive Much Value From The Display Itself. What I Wanted From This Product Was The Alarm. The Manufacturer Claims It Will Provide An Audible Alarm When The Battery Is About To Fail. That Warning Was The Important Thing To Me. The Warning Emitted By This Monitor Is Inaudible Under A Closed Hood. One Can Try And Position The Unit In Different Ways Within The Limits Of The Attaching Cables But On Neither Of My Cars Did I Ever Find A Location Under The Hood That Allowed The Warning To Be Audible. My Hearing Is In No Way Impaired And I Can't Hear It. My Wife Whose Hearing Is Acutely Sensitive Can't Hear It Either. A Few Weeks After Installation The Battery In My Car Died Overnight While In My Garage. I Heard Nothing Walking Out To My Car In The Morning. There Was Enough Power To Operate The Device And The Car's Accessories But Not Enough To Crank The Engine. Had I Been Away From Home I Would Have Most Likely Been Stranded. As It Was I Was Late For Work. I Had Enjoyed The False Sense Of Security Up To This Point And Now I Was Paying The Price. This Is Exactly The Kind Of Inconvenience I Was Hoping To Avoid By Purchasing This Item. My Wife's Car Battery Died A Few Months Later Also Without Warning. I Am Skilled As An Auto Technician And I Think Casual Drivers Will Eventually Be Let Down By This Monitor. I Have Gone Back To Regularly Using A Load Tester And Measuring Specific Gravity Of The Electrolyte To Determine Battery Health. I Had Gotten Lazy And Thought This Device Could Help Me Reduce My Weekend Workload. Well I'm Back To Maintaining My Batteries The Old Fashioned Way. At Least Now If I Get Stranded I Can Only Blame Myself Instead Of Having Placed My Trust In A Mostly Useless Gadget. I Give It Two Stars Because It Does Have A Working Display. Interpreting That Display May Be Difficult For Users Who Are Not Engineers Or Technicians. To Me The Desirable Aspect Of This Monitor Was The Alarm Feature And That Doesn't Work.

This small, relatively high priced item hooks up quickly to a standard post car battery. Once you've made the connection it will begin a 30 second countdown. Now you start your engine and come out to see your battery strength as a percentage and the charge voltage. The 1st number tells you if you need to charge your battery or run your charging system and the second number tells you how well your charging system is operating. It recently helped me to get out in front of a 70% charged new battery that barely had enough juice in it to turn over my subaru outback wagon in bitter cold -6 degree f weather. I ran a 6 amp charge for 3 hours and that solved my problem. The 2 amp charge was hardly registering in those cold conditions which is the method of charging i would have normally used. I've observed that that method of charging will raise the battery's charge by 2-3% per hour in milder conditions. If you have an internal post battery like older chevy's use then you can use gorilla tape on the battery bug's leads to achieve contact and go through the same procedure. I would not recommend leaving this device attached to the battery as you are courting a malfunction exposing it to the elements and engine temperatures. It's best used as an intermittant tool to gage battery health and save time by getting you out in front of potential problems. Be careful working around hot batteries because they will arc and spark if you cross the leads which is easy to do if you're in a hurry or not paying close attention to what you're doing.
