This battery tester is from the Blind Mice Mega Mall and I've owned it
for about 4 or 5 years. It's about $79 which is a little pricey, but
it works like a charm.

I don’t know how battery measuring instruments determine the percent of
charge used but I wouldn’t consider the tongue method reliable. It can tell
you when a battery is so much depleted that the voltage produced isn’t near
the amount intended, even after a period of disuse. But Batteries often
produce more current when they haven’t been used, and when used, the amount
of current produced quickly goes down, perhaps significantly. So the amount
of current you feel on your tongue doesn’t necessarily tell you anything
about the true state of the battery.



I would hope instruments to determine the battery state are smart enough to
determine the true state.

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.
