Purchase a simple multi-tester or multi-meter for less than ten dollars and perform the following test. With the car off, leave the headlights on for about 2-3 minutes. Set an alarm so you do not drain the battery, and turn the headlights off when it goes off. This will remove any surface charge. Set the multi-tester dial so it registers in the 20 Volt DC range. You can read the multi-tester instructions or research its use online. A multi-tester is very simple to use. Touch the red lead to the positive battery terminal, and the black one to the negative. A healthy, fully charged battery should read around 12.5-12.8 Volts. This will vary with temperature (lower temperatures mean lower voltage), but should never be below 12 Volts. Another optional suggestion is to touch the black multi-tester lead to your engine or a metal part of the vehicle. If the voltage is substantially lower you may have a bad cable connection.
Oh it must be more than a couple decades now, but I can remember dealing with an independent contractor in my auto detailing business in Santa Barbara. He told me that he bought a very quiet generator, a Honda model, top of the line. He told me that he wanted one powerful enough to run a 5-hp vacuum, his buffers, lights, and a 1500 psi, 2.5 gallon per minute pressure washer all at the same time. I asked him why.
If you have ever seen a spray paint artist performing or on YouTube and wanted to try it, you can start out with an air-brush and water based acrylics instead. Spray paint cans can get very expensive and you will need much more protection and care to use them as they contain solvents. Start out with water based acrylics and an air-brush so you can learn to do spray paint art the safe and easy way.
Additional features of this unit include a 12v DC output socket complete with an overload protection system, a charging level and battery condition indicator all contained in a 14 inch x 13 in box which weighs only 16 Lbs. The booster pack will operate a small lamp for several hours without dimming. The booster pack has a light on the front of the case to provide illumination to your work area as you complete your task.
I will discuss safety first. You should ideally wear chemical splash goggles while working around a car battery. Batteries can potentially produce explosive hydrogen gas which can explode and release sulfuric acid. Although this is very rare, it is important to avoid any sparking around the battery and wear eye protection. Always use prudence and common sense when working around cars.
Mail Order - This is the oldest division of this company. This division was established when the company acquired several mail order companies in the tool and equipment enterprise. The mail order began with employees sending catalogues to random addresses. The outcome of this experiment was overwhelming, the order began to flood and the company then introduced its very first mail order catalogue. At present, customers can purchase through the catalogue or through the company's official website.
