VDC Electronics says its BatteryMinder Battery and Alternator Condition Tester provides the condition of a vehicle’s battery and alternator with the simple press of a button. The unit’s multicolored LED indicators are designed to respond to the battery’s voltage; with the engine on, a press of the test button indicates whether the alternator is putting out enough voltage to charge the battery.
Model 12104, designed to work with all size and type 12-volt batteries, is waterproof and small enough to fit on the top or side of even the smallest battery, the company says; the unit draws no power until the test button is pressed. To install, use the supplied marine-grade Velcro to attach the tester’s two wire connections to the battery’s post screws or clamps.
