How much will this test in amp hours, need a tester to do 100 amp hrs @ 20 hrs, will this tester do this?

Asked by: Lee Allison
Hi Lee, thank you so much for contacting us. Unfortunately, we do not currently offer a tester designed to do a quick test of backup/reserve power lead acid style batteries that large. Our RC-300 tester is the only unit we have designed with those types of batteries in mind but it's capacity is significantly lower at 50Ah: Sorry for the bad news.

I tested my jet ski battery with your BVA-300 tester and it said the battery was "Bad", so I bought a new battery, put on a charger to make sure it was fully charged and it also checked Bad. Is this tester designed to test small batteries???
