Thinking of getting one of these. Looking for reviews if you have one. Brand and model would be nice.

All 3 of my rigs have sealed batteries so I just use a multi-meter to read the voltage and compare to an on-line state of charge chart to get a rough idea of the batteries condition. With my wife and I being older and high risk in this pandemic era, we're not going out much and I've had to throw a battery charger on 2 of the rigs in the last week, that's about all of the vehicle maintenance I've done in our now low mileage household. Diyer, if you're talking about a load tester, the chain auto parts stores will do that for you for free. From what I've read, rapidly falling voltage after a fresh charge will probably mean that said battery will fail a load test and needs to be replaced.
