Battery Pete demonstrates how to use a battery load tester to check the life of a battery.  So you can see whether it’s time to replace it or if you have some life left in it.  In this video he shows you how on a 1968 Corvette convertible 327, which has the battery behind the driver’s seat, but a battery is a battery. It’s similar to what you might have up front under the hood.

He’s has a larger tester that he uses for car batteries as well as larger marine batteries.  But even if yours is the smaller handheld variety, connect the terminals and set it to 100 amps you’ll be good.

If you have questions, feel free to call Pete.  He can help you determine which size or type you might need and can help save you about 15% versus going to the neighborhood parts store.
