Usually, It can measure AC and DC voltage, DC current, and resistance. It also checks diodes, verifies continuity, and tests 1.5 V and 9 V batteries

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.

How to use


Voltage testers and volt meters are two different things. A meter will provide a an indication of the exact voltage and type AC or DC. A tester on the other hand simply provides an indication of presence of power with little to no indication of how much or type.

AC power is what is provided by most power companies in the world. DC is a type of power provided by batteries and DC power supplies. If your tester or meter has provisions to check for AC and DC, you should check for BOTH. If AC power is present and you are have set your meter to test for DC power, your meter will indicate 0 volts. You can see this can be a dangerous condition. Most simple testers will not care if AC or DC power is being tested and the types that use neon lamps will usually glow differently for AC and DC power.

When setting up for testing voltage, you must test across the power source (or in "parallel") or load (such as a light bulb), as opposed to "in series" with the power source. Across would be from the + to - post of a battery, into the slots of an outlet, etc. "In series" is when the tester would be completing a circuit - such as testing across an open switch.

First, check the meter's operation by testing a known good power source by following the next steps. Set the meter for the type power to be tested. Choose AC if unsure. Next, set the meter for the highest voltage range supported. Make sure this range is higher than the expected voltage, otherwise damage to the meter may result. Connect the probes to the power source. Read the meter. If the meter moved only slightly, adjust the range of the meter to the next lower value. You can keep adjusting downward as needed to get the most precise reading possible - but do not set the range to a value less than the voltage present. A 0-300 volt scale is the lowest to measure a 240 volt outlet - switching to a 0 - 150 volt scale will damage the meter. The 0 - 150 volt scale would be fine for measuring 120 volt outlets.

If the meter did not move, change the type from AC to DC. and repeat. If it still does not work, the meter is not working correctly (if testing a know good source) or there is no power present (if the meter worked on a known good power source).

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.

I cant find where the batteries are located on my IDEAL voltage tester #61-085


The #61-085 does not have batteries. (It does not test for continuity) The #61-086 does have batteries.
1. Replace batteries when touching the leads together no longer lights the continuity LED or produces an audible sound. 2. Remove test leads from tester. 3. Loosen the encapsulated screw from the bottom of the case. 4. Remove battery cap. 5. Replace the batteries with (4) new 1.5V button-type batteries (IDEAL# 61-201, IEC #LR44, or NEOA# 1166A). 6. Replace battery cap and re-tighten the encapsulated screw.

If I am trying to find the 'hotwire' for lights how do I do that? Do I touch 1 wire and the junction box then the other and the junction box and whichever lights the instrument that is the hot wire?


Test for hot wire:
By code, hot wire should be black.

Take photo of wiring so everything can be put back.
Remove wires from device.
Separate wires for testing.
Use ordinary tester.
Test each wire to bare ground wire.
Tester lights up on hot wire.

Now test for neutral wire.
You know hot wire.
Test each hot wire to other wires (except bare ground)
Tester lights up on neutral.

If you do not have a tester, take ordinary wall lamp.
Plug on wall lamp has 2 prongs.
Prongs should have a hole.
Spread prongs apart.
Wrap bare copper wire into hole on prong1.
Turn on power.
Test prong2 to each wire.
Light comes on when prong2 touches hot wire

Can I test a 12v battery


My friend ... here is the answer:

Description:
  • WIGGLY VOLTAGE TESTER
  • 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.

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.

I have a bad circuit (S type 15 amps fuse) that blows every fuse I put in it. My four way voltage tester says that it runs at 110 volts. Does this mean that I have a ground or short circuit problem? If so,...


please describe what type of device or circuitry you are having the fuse repeatedly blow so that I have a better idea of understanding your specific circumstance. A constant blown fuse normally indicates a short somewhere or an overloaded circuit somewhere. The type of tester you need is a ground fault receptacle tester you can purchase them at any hardware/electrical supply store for between $10-15 that tester when plugged in will show whether you wiring is correctly installed or not. please respond with further info and I can be of more assistance

How many Testers Types


The simplest and least expensive tester is the neon 2-wire 0-500 volt tester. Put one of the leads on a ground reference (box screws, neutral side of a plug, neutral or white wire, etc.) and the other lead on the hot wire (hot side of a plug, black or red wire, etc.) If the neon light glows, then you have voltage at the outlet, as is the case here. Another handy device to have around is the plug tester. Just plug this device into a receptacle, and it will not only tell you if there is voltage present, but also if it is wired correctly (or not!). Just follow the codes on the tester to determine the situation. The type of meter that most electricians will use is the digital multi-meter. These come in various brand names, price ranges and quality, and the old adage, "you get what you pay for" is the best advice to follow here.
