ASE Question Of the Month 
Sponsored By

Which is correct?

You’re correct if you answered C!

The high sample rate captures the peak inrush current in the starter – or the actual amount of current draw needed to get the starter and the engine moving. This can result in peaks of 600 amps, and also draw a healthy battery as low as 8.5 volts. It can also detect a sulfated battery by measuring an abnormally high net charging amperage.
