It needs power to beep and vibrate which doesn't happen if you test a battery withlittle or no power.

Um, so you have to use batteries to power the tester to test batteries? Weird...

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.
