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.

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.

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.
