I am hardcore old school when it comes to checking the health of a bat... Its not unusual for me to run into a print out from from those new checkers that states the bat is good when its not... I am not sold on them...

The art of load testing a battery just may be history only because its to much for low wage employ's to compered... All they now have to do is hook it up and press a button and act smart...

Had one a few weeks ago that was a no start,,, AAA guy hooked up his gismo it printed out the bat was bad,,, he told the customer it also had a bad alternator :shock: How he tested the alt when it would not start I dunno :shock:
Tow truck dropped it off it cranked good,,,,,,, I found a blown fuse for the EFI... I replaced the fuse and while under the dash noticed it had a security system un-hooked it and all is well...
I run into these print outs often I spec 80% of the time the bat is bad when the print out says its good... What I find is the bat is borderline on its last leg,,, it may crank it but short winded it better fire up are you are gonna need a jump... The other issue is the computer will shut down if the cranking voltage falls below 9V (are their a bouts)... A borderline are bad bat uses all its stored energy cranking the engine it leaves very little to operate other systems like ignition...

I know you are proud of your new toy and have all right to be proud,,, I bet I can prove it wrong on a regular basis...

As long as there are old tractors and autos, these types of tools will still be in demand. Mind you, it takes people who are capable enough to interpret results from tools likes these. Without the need for computerized gizmos made today, many of todays mechanics would be lost.
