What it all means
How to interpret your battery's state of health as determined by interstate's ed-18® analyzer
Factors that Determine Battery Life
Climate, individual driving habits and creature comforts, such as GPS devices and DVD players, all factor into determining battery life. That's why it's so important to let us test your battery every three months or so. It only takes a few minutes, and you'll leave with peace of mind.
Problems run hot and cold
Weather extremes can take a tremendous toll on your vehicle's battery. Compare your battery's age with the average life expectancy of batteries in your part of the country. Consider these facts:
Your battery measures within the manufacturer's specification for CCA (the measuring standard of battery power). Your battery should reliably start the vehicle.
Your battery will probably start your car within certain conditions. If the weather turns very cold or hot, your battery may fail. Consider replacing your battery.
Your vehicle may have started today, but there is an increasing likelihood of battery failure. Consider replacing your battery now.
Your battery doesn't have enough of a charge for us to know whether it's good or bad. The battery should be charged and tested again.
ED-18 Battery &
Electrical System Analyzer
The ED-18 Early Detection Battery & Electrical System Analyzer is able to make a clear-cut identification of good, marginal and replacement batteries. The ED-18 also tests the vehicle's starter and charging system, making it a valuable tool for the technician, who needs a fast, accurate and comprehensive electrical system diagnosis.
Jointly developed by Interstate Batteries and Midtonics and distributed exclusively by Interstate, the ED-18 uses an enhanced version of the conductance technology. This technology has been refined in the ED-18 to a new level of sensitivity for detecting marginal batteries. Regular use of the ED-18 at your location will improve customer service, while creating opportunities for preventive battery replacement and electrical system repairs.
