As a quick, easy, convenient and accurate method of checking vehicle battery health, Laser Tools has recently introduced its battery tester (part number 8206).
It says this is a compact unit that accurately tests battery health and cranking and charging voltages. Enter the battery details from the battery label and the results are displayed on the LCD screen.
The CCA (cold cranking amps) figure can be used to predict the lifetime of the battery, which is displayed by a level-bar indicator on the screen.
With easy-to-understand instructions, engine start voltage can also be measured as well as charging (alternator) voltage. Accurate to +/-0.05V and features reverse-polarity protection. The unit has no internal battery and is mounted in a protective rubber cover.
It is suitable for 12V (9V – 15V) normal lead acid batteries: sealed maintenance-free, maintenance-free, EFB, and AGM batteries.
