Load testers

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 maintenance will help ensure it doesn’t let you down when you need it most.

Load Test the Battery

If the battery’s state-of-charge is at 75 percent or higher or has a “good” built-in hydrometer indication, then you can load test a car battery by one of the following methods:

  1. With a battery load tester, apply a load equal to one-half of the CCA rating of the battery for 15 seconds. (Recommended method).
  2. With a battery load tester, apply a load equal to one-half the vehicle’s CCA specification for 15 seconds.
  3. Disable the ignition and turn the engine over for 15 seconds with the starter motor.
