|Yes, Martin. There are cheap "Just battery checker" meters that put a small load on the battery being tested. If I put the same load on these batteries, I can use my DVM to quickly get an approximate heath of a battery, but I did not remember what those load values were. You put me in the ball park.

|I remember a discussion about checking batteries, like AAA, AA, 9V, etc. With a Hi-Z meter, there is no loading of the battery. To check the like batteries, there were suggested load resistances for the typical cells and then you could use a Hi-Z digital meter to have a fair evaluation of the battery being measured. I can not seem to find those suggested values anywhere.
