the link still works, and this sounds like a
renamed version of the caretec one, so should still be a current product. I have
one of these myself, and whilst the talking multimeter method does give a more
accurate reading, enabling one to better match batteries of equal strength, this
product is a good one, and probably more available, as am not sure that any
talking multimeters are currently available generally.

I found this at APH. That is asuming that this is
still a good link.
Kind of expensive...I’ll just stick with my tooth

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
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.

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.
