What is a load tester for a batterie

A load tester is typically a resistance pack with an amp gauge to see how the battery deals with current draw. most automotive parts stores have one to bench test car/motorcycle batteries, which they do at no charge (pardon the pun).

Batteries can have a "surface charge"(voltage) which will supply low current at the specified voltage from a battery with bad cells, but when a real operating load, such as for an electric motor, the charge drops to zip..

If the charger is putting out voltage to the battery while it's plugged in then it would definitely be a battery issue, generally the charging system for electric wheel-chairs has regulatory circuits to prevent over charging so having one plugged in when not in use typically doesn't cause issues.

Alternator will not charge battery

you should check the alternator to see if it is putting out the proper volts to charge the i would have the alternator bench tested and have the battery checked to, most auto stores will bench test the alternator and put a load test on the battery for free.the alternator has a voltage regulator built in that controls the voltage GMC is famous for the regulators going good luck

How do you replace the batteries

Staight from the manual:

• Remove test leads from tester.

• Loosen the encapsulated screw from the

bottom of the case.

• Remove battery cap.

• Replace the batteries with (4) new 1.5V

button-type batteries (IDEAL# 61-201,

IEC #LR44, or NEOA# 1166A).

• Replace battery cap and re-tighten the
encapsulated screw.

Can I use a standard hand held battery tester to check the batteries and charging system in my travel trailer. The tester is a I35 AMP Battery Load Tester.

You can teat the battery with this, but you need a volt meter to test the charging system. Your battery should have about 13.5 volts when the ehicle is running.

Look for a lamp that is normally hidden and supposed to turn off when the cover is closed--trunk, hood, glove box, ?. If everything checks ok, you need to use a test light between the negative battery terminal and the loose negative ground cable so that any load on the system will light the tester. Start pulling fuses, one at a time, to see which circuit is drawing current. The fuse that makes the light go out is the circuit to be investigated. Keep track of where the fuses belong. Good luck!

DC testing

No, you can't use an Ideal 61-065 tester to test a car battery. It is only for 100 volts AC/DC to 600 volts AC/DC.
A meter like this will work:

Actually, the easiest way to test a car battery without a meter is to turn on the lights. If the lights shine bright like they are supposed too for a minute or so, the battery is maintaining the correct voltage.

Can I test a 12v battery

My friend ... here is the answer:

  • Solenoid type tester polarity
  • indicator
  • 120/240/600 VAC; 50/60 HZ
  • Lifetime warranty
Your 12 volt battery is DC voltage as well as far below the voltage testing threshold of 120 volts.

Thank you for your interest n

Checking batteries

I assume a "DM-350a" is some kind of a digital multimeter. I Googled and found it might be a "A.W. Sperry DM350A 5 Function 17 Range Digital Multimeter" and looking at the ranges available on that meter, you can't really thest the battery "under load" the only reasonable way to test small batteries. the DC current only goes up to 200 milli amperes. A "C" or "D" size flashlight battery puts out 1 to 4 amps depending on conditions. That's 5 to 20 times the current readable by that meter. The volts on one of those batteries is probably 1.6 volts to 1.3 volts etc. If you live in the United States, I'd say go to Radio Shack and spend $5 to $15 and buy a battery tester like "Enercell Analog 9-Range Battery Checker, $14.99, Model 22-156, catalog # 22-156"
Then you and anyone in your family can read the instructions and test 8 or 9 different type batteries. Battery types: 1.5V button-cells, "AAA"/"N"/"AA"/"C"/"D", 6V, 9V, 12V, 15V and 22.5V..
This is not supposed to be an advertizement, and I have no interest in RadioShack,... but it's supposed to be instructional.

Small price, Good instruction to anyone who can read, and if anyone forgets, they can re-read. Testing a lot of batteries in a sitting goes very fast with these.

Differently, with the sperry, or any voltmeter, you'd have to select a resistor small enough to draw the current, and large enough not to overheat or burn, connect it and measure the loaded voltage drop, compare the voltage and current of the loaded battery, and compare it to that of a new battery, and a battery you might consider too weak for your application.. Voltage equals amps times resistance, and power equals amps squared times resistance... Really, buy a battery tester.

Im having a charging problem i have a 250 amp alternator 4 gauge wire and still lacks power 94 civic

What is the voltage at the battery with engine running? With engine off? You need to test the voltage 'while the engine is cranking' for a load test.
