D700Replacement: How would one test the relative condition of a lithium rechargeable battery?  If I have several identical camera batteries how would I go about choosing which ones to keep?  And what criteria would I use to rate them?  ie. number of charges left, max charge each will take, performance under a load ?

Carlo Tanne: I need to test some Energizer Lithium 9x batteries. What tester would you use?
 

mnash3: Cool.... Thanks for sharing.... I will look to see if Radio Shack has what I need....

Kev Mcgee:
OK

Anna Berry: Can you also test re-chargable batteries in this way to see if they need re-charging?

Hafnium Halflife: but I have already bought a multimeter to test my battery (after doing some research on some well known forum)! Wish I have watch your video before I made the decision to buy.

kimchee94112: Look up "multimeter schematic" and "How does a multimeter work?" on Google. Look up voltage and current measurements on Google as well.

kimchee94112: Look up Battery Fuel Gauge and State of Charge (SOC). Need a different tester for car batteries.

dial2fast: I see what you are trying to say. The multimeter will give you a decimal reading of the voltage in DC or AC. Multimeter is mostly used for checking voltage readings, such as whether a circuit has 12v or 5v or 3v or 0.7v. The battery tester does not need to have that kind of resolution on it's reading. It simply just tell you it's good or bad. As to your statement, you can think of it as the reading translated to a percentage of the capacity of the battery.

Ben Cobb: Thank you very much for this; I've been meaning to buy one (or both) of the devices demonstrated in this video, yet I didn't have an idea of what the "Different readings" mean. Just to be clear that I understand correctly; It's as if the Multimeter measures the voltage as a DECIMAL (I.E. 1.5 out of a maximum value of 2), Whereas the Battery tester will give a reading of the voltage as a PERCENTAGE (I.E. The meter will swing to 75% over a "dead" reading) Is that right ? Or did I over-think it ?

akr3985fan: The Image was a little Blurry for me if it could be sharped up a bit that would be great Other wise Good Video

dial2fast: yes, the needle goes to the green section of the meter for full strength

daemonk9: can these only tell when a battery is nearly dead? Is there a way to tell when battery is nearly full?

Big Ed Mustafa: Good video. Thanks!

Jason Dunlop: Very helpful. Thank you

dial2fast: Yes, that CEN-TECH does have a battery mode, but I was trying demonstrate how easy and inexpensive it is to use a battery tester which gives you a simple red and green range. There is not only one way to test a battery but why not use a simple way.

KJH Bakker: i use a multimeter for all my batteries if its 1.2v or lower its empty around 1.35 - 1.49 its ok 1.5 or higher its great!

Antonio Caldera: Great info!

Alexander Rex Evensen: I found a multimeter which had built-in battery tester for 1.5 and 9 volts, so I guess that might work as both? =)

drutter: Silverporn blast from the past...... hehehe
Alvarez Asenjo: No creo que así te lo hayan enseñado en Asturias...Pues en el Principado se la pasan batiendo horas...Pero no es mala idea lo de ablandar el arroz en agua...si el resultado es parecido...En Cuba siempre se endulzó con leche condensada, en Asturias no.
En Asturias algunas expertas le ponen huevo, y es habitual ponerle anís en rama.
Lo de la leche evaporada tampoco es muy astur pero le tiene que sentar bien, en Cuba se usaba mucho para toda la repostería. En cualquier caso la leche de las vaques del país que no dan excesiva cantidad y no están estabuladas y pacen en las brañas es el ingrediente principal.
Es mi postre favorito no en vano soy cubano de origen astur, mucha gente lo hace pero pocas/os lo hacen realmente bueno, requiere sapiencia, cariño y mucha paciencia porque es laborioso.

Adrián Fresno Ferrer: alegría máxima! TERA TIENE APARTADO DE CORREOS.
Diogo Lima: no site deles eu acho que tem, o link ta na descrição do vídeo.
TFRdrones: i saw on another video here in youtube that you can mount a boscam hd camera on a reptile aphid with no mods at all , i think the boscam and the horyzon camera are similar in the specs but put together in different cases .
KeJorn: Ok this one gets the 'poverty macro' label. But hey, whatever works. :)  
I personally try to avoid breads - though I understand it's the macro totals for the day that truly matter.
While I am just starting to track my intake, I am already seeing where my previous diet lacked sufficient protein to meet the 40% I should be aiming for. (using the typical 40/40/20 breakdown) I can see I will need to invest a lot more in different varieties of proteins to have on hand. Ones that can be prepped quickly, like this meal (canned meats?), protein shakes, and cottage cheese, etc... as well as the standard lean meats that take time to prep.
