Battery load testers should be close to battery load test.
Such that a 105 minute battery is supposed to do 75 amps for 105 minutes.
So a 25 amp load tester will not show up some dead batteries.
I use a 125 amp tester and have a couple of 100 amp load testers.
I do have a harbor freight tester/or rather just volt meter with medium
duty clamp on clips.
I use it for toy Gel Cell batteries! ie 7 AH, and 17 AH ,12 volters.
I use some old batteries that are dead for tractor/EV use on my
It still will do 20 amps or more for many hours but wont run a garden
Mostly my tractor does very low amps with a 1205-211 Curtis PWM.
