Yes, Melissa, please tell us how it works and where you got it, as well as the cost of it. Thanks.

Hello all. I'll be using it at church to test wireless microphone batteries. I found something that might work and it will arrive on Wednesday. I will let you guys know how it works when it gets here.
Thanks for all the suggestions.

Why not just try a battery powered tooth brush. Some use AA and some

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.
