I don't think either ILA or Maxi-Aids sells an accessible battery tester any longer.

I think that what the person is after is a battery meader that will read out the voltage of different batteries and I seem to recall seeing one on a websight somewhere maybe maxiades or something that was a talking battery meeter that had a austrlaion voice and you could put different batteries in it and it would read out what they would be etc. from Mich.

I have been using two discarded tooth brushes for around ten years now.  Both use a single battery.

 

But, oh well, which ever works  will get the job done.

The problem with using a battery-powered toothbrush to test batteries is that they usually require two batteries, so it would be difficult to determine which of the two batteries might be weak. That's why I use vibrators that only require a single AA or AAA battery.

Why not just try a battery powered tooth brush.  Some use AA and some of the smaller tooth brushes use AAA.

This is not a rliable means of determining battry strength, and besides, it only workds with 9V batteries and not with AA, AAA C and D batteries.  Years ago ILA used to sell an audible battery tester that was made by Radio Shack, which of course went bye bye  years ago.  I am not aware of any affordable, audible battery testers that are still on the market. To test AA and AAA batteries, which are the sizes most commonly used, I use single battery, inexpensive  vibrators that I purchased on EBay.  I have one that takes a single AA battery and another one that takes a single AAA battery.  I just insert a battery and twist the cap, and if the battery is okay, the unit vibrates strongly, and if is weak, it vibrates feeblely.  And of corse, besides being excellent battery testers, they are useful for other purposes which I won't describe here, if you get my drift.

Melissa, for 9 volts, just use your tongue.  It works well and it is very accessable.

Hello list. I need some accessible way to test the percentage of
double a, tripple a, c, d, and 9V batteries. Is there one accessible
product that will do all of this? Thanks in advance for your help.
