Default Re: Battery Tester

This cart already has head and tail lights installed. I haven't ran them yet at night, but have turned them on to make sure they work. I would guess these are just wired into the regular 6 battery wiring system, as there is no extra battery. No doubt, that would probably be a really big draw off the batteries when using, wouldn't it?

The 6v/12v tester will work,but you need to find out what the amp-load of the tester is.Most of the smaller handhelds are 125amp.This isn't enough to properly test the batteries.To load-test,you need to draw half of the CCA of the battery.The larger "Hand-Held" units can pull 400-500amps,and will work good for this.The "Scotty-Meter" is a definite Must-Buy,but you still need good batteries,and a good Initial-Test is important.Hope this helps.

I just checked my meter there was no amp rating for the load test.

I just assumed that it was at lest 250 amp because of the vehicles it was designed for.

Very interesting

My hand held is only 100 amps. So the readings I got earlier are not really accurate then?

Well that goes for mine too if mine is that low.

It's down at the campsite with the cart, so can't check on that till Fri. I'm like you were though, with the vehicles that was listed in the box that it was designed for, Coulda swore a golf cart was no problem

I bought from snap on 20 years ago all the print on the outside has worn off.

If that's true 100amp load test then your batteries are gone.

Says it's good for golf carts, cars, trucks, lifts, boats. Heavy Duty 100 Amp Load Tester. Would using a Hydrometer with the float balls inside help determine the charge of my batteries? I got one of those today and was going to take it down with me this Fri. when we go back to the campground.

I just looked at yours on the web page.

Mine is about the size of a golf cart charger with a handle on top and about 4' cables.
