Just so you know your partly right the voltage will only test if the battery is good or bad, but will not tell you how much charge is in it. You would need a load tester also knows as a batter tester to do that. It is possible to find the charge with a multimeter but it has to have a load on it or be in use and you would be looking for the amps, not quite as easy as finding the voltage. So congratulations on misleading anyone that doesnt know anything about electronics. Two thumbs way up there bud!
