Tools for Measuring Car Battery Performance

An automotive battery operates on conventional mechanisms that are easy to analyze with simple instruments. You don't have to be a scientist or auto expert to check the status of this important feature under the hood.

A hydrometer is a basic device that's engineered to measure the ion and water levels inside the cells of a car battery. Based on the readings, you might have to add the appropriate volume of distilled water to each of the six cells. A voltmeter is another item that you need to thoroughly analyze the performance of an auto battery. You must wear insulated gloves and other protective apparel to minimize the risk of electrical shock or acid spills during the testing procedure.
