Testing Vehicle Batteries with a Midtronics Tester

Your vehicle’s battery is not very demanding, and most often only thought about when it fails. But just a small amount of care and mantainence will help insure it doesn’t let you down when you need it most.

Lack of battery care and maintenance combined with cold weather has a way of bringing out the borderline batteries that were fine in the summer, but don’t have the power for a cold weather start. And not just winter, battery care and maintenance is a year round requirement. You want to catch a bad battery before it lets you down, usually on one of the coldest days of the year.

Testing and maintaining a battery is fairly simple and only requires a few basic tools.

If you have a car battery, it is highly recommended that you use a good quality Midtronics tester. There are quite a few types of Midtronics testers. The latest MDX with built in printer are much easier to read and I don’t have to stand there trying techncial information.

Analog (needle type) voltmeters are not accurate enough to measure the millivolt differences of a battery’s State-of-Charge or measure the output of the charging system. A battery load tester is optional.

Also charging a battery is highly recomended,  CTek chargers are an ideal solution to keep a battery recharged.
