Hello, I'm curious if this item can be equipped with an Amp clamp. If not, can you recommend a good one to monitor current flow in real time? Thank you in advance for any additional help/information.

Asked by: Gary D
Hi Gary, thank you so much for contacting us. This tester does not utilize an amp clamp. Perhaps the easiest way to add one would to be to use one of our clamp equipped multimeters: https://www.autometer.com/catalogsearch/result/?q=dm-#1&profile=products The BVA-36/2 is an all in one tester that does utilize a clamp and extra external leads for more in depth vehicle testing: https://www.autometer.com/bva-36-2-800-amp-variable-load-battery-electrical-system-tester.html Hope this helps!

Can you test deep cycle batteries with this unit?

Asked by: bruric
Thank you for the question. You cannot test a deep cycle battery with any of our variable load testers. We would recommend our handheld model SB-300 Tester.
