Good battery load tester?? Both 6v & 8V
Is there a reasonable battery load tester that does both 6V & 8V batteries?

I have a nice snap on 12V, I would like a tester to check out my carts and I can find load testers that do both 6 & 12 Volts, but no 8 volts.

Any tips?

Not that I know of... my battery guy has a big old pile load tester with all sorts of adjustments on it where he can vary the load and read the sustained voltage. But that old thing was prolly expensive? I have a draw down tester for 36 and 48v packs, I know that thing was expensive..... I guess that is the bottom line. Not really cost effective for the owner of 2 or 3 carts.

What I did with a friend's cart was to let him drive up a long hill, without the seats, while I checked volts on each battery. However, while this may tell you if you have a battery or two that are lower than the others, it doesn't tell you the overall health of the pack. It doesn't reference anything. In his case, two of them were a good bit lower, so he opted to buy two used ones, which got him a few more years, for not too much money.
