SBS-2500 Hydrometer

Digital Battery Hydrometer / Density Meter

Specific Gravity Tester w/ Downloading Capabilities


The SBS-2500 offers the ability to test both lead-acid and nickel-cadmium batteries within seconds. It compares the temperature of the sample fluid with the set value and makes the necessary adjustments automatically with the built-in thermostat.


This unit will allow you to log up to 1,100 individual specific gravity and temperature readings that can be uploaded to a laptop or PC running the included software.


When combined with our SBS-6000 battery diagnostic tester, it provides an all-in-one solution for your battery testing needs.


Easy instructions:

  • Immerse the sampling tube
  • Pull the trigger
  • View your final results




  • Time savings — 5 times faster than conventional methods
  • ± 0.001 accuracy
  • Tests Lead-Acid and Ni-Cad batteries
  • Measures specific gravity and temperature
  • Automatically temperature compensated to 77º F (25º C)
  • Stores 1,100 results internally
  • Software package for downloading
  • Carrying case
  • LED display
  • CE compliant


SBS-2500 digital battery hydrometer

Whether in a telecommunications central office, utility substation or critical data power battery room, the ability to spot-check the specific gravity of suspect cells is invaluable. Performing your own preventative maintenance on your flooded batteries is greatly simplified when employing this digital hydrometer.
