    Battery Analyzer

    Due to the wonderful performance of the John Deere batteries and any battery brand I put in my Jeep ... I went out and purchased a CTEK battery Analyzer and I feel it has already saved my butt. its pretty cool little unit.

    In this video you can see it diagnoses an issue that might have saved me from being stranded.

    Thanks! I've been shopping around for something similar. I've also been looking at the various load testers which are available. In researching the CTEK unit I also found the unit below. It has a lot of good reviews and also tests the charging/starter functions which I'm not sure the CTEK unit does.

    Thanks for the posting, I admit buying one could be handy at times. You can take your battery to Advance Auto, Auto Zone would guess Wally World and they will test your battery with no cost to you.

    You can do a lot of battery testing with a digital volt meter as well. I have a battery tester in the truck, but rarely ever use it. Usually go for the Fluke meter.

    I thought the same thing 56, in fact I was following up each test with my Fluke. But I do not know how to determine the current CCA's of a battery with my Fluke?

    You can certainly do more with a battery tester than a Fluke, but how valuable that information is just depends on what you're doing. If I have a battery failing a load test, I replace it just as you would a battery with weak CCA.

    Have you tried an Optima battery in the Jeep?

    Optimas are nowhere near what they used to be. People around here are having much better luck with Interstate batteries.
