Yeah... I just grabbed the first one in a Google search.. I have a Fluke that does a pretty good job.. But 35-40 years ago I had a Snap-on battery draw meter that you held on the battery cable to measure draw when cranking or searching for a drain.. that worked pretty good too..

MerlinB I had the same initial thought. I was an adjunct faculty at a college. Conducted several courses in electricity for several years, my trusty fluke clamp on ammeter was ac only. I used my trust old Automate with a shunt for dc. It was the size of a toaster and had a dwell meter. The dwell meter wasn't for testing pondering thoughts but for setting the gap on the ignition points. Now I'm showing my age!

I have worked in the automotive repair field for 20 years, if you have ever had your charging system, starter draw or battery load tested the tech used a Volt meter and a clamp on DC amp meter.

You need to read the entire thread to get the complete history. In post #1 the OP indicates that they are "deep cycle batteries" and rated at 105 amp/hrs each. Then in post #16 he confirms that they are 12 volt batteries. Sometimes everything isn't included in the first post, members ask for clarification or added information and it's typically provided further "down the line", as is the situation here.

My point was, CG2 batteries have way more capacity that 105AH
