Review TT TOPDON ArtiBattery 101 Digital 12 Volt Battery Tester
Testing a car or truck battery health can be done a few ways with most using a multi-meter to check the voltage.

If more information is needed on the state of a 12-volt automotive battery, testers can be used which give much more information.

One such unit is the TT TOPDON ArtiBattery 101 which can do full test on 8-16VDC automotive batteries.

Test include the State of Health, Cranking / Load Test, Charging Test and more.

*This unit was sent to me to review with my honest opinion and results below.

The package comes with the unit and quick start guide.

Hooking it up is easy with Red and Black cables going to the positive and negative battery terminals.

It will ask a few questions such as language. It also will need the Amps the battery is rated for which should be on the side or top of the battery.

I hooked it up to an old battery for testing and it shows the SOH (State of Health) at the top left of the screen at 38%.

It also showed the SOC (State of Charge) at 98%, 425 Amps, and 12.58 volts.

It can be set to do a Cranking Test which I did next.
