Get yourself a backup light from the auto parts. Stick the wire on one side of the battery and the light on the other. If it is bright it is good. If it is dim it needs a charge. If it don't shine at all it is DOA.

If you keep a spare 12v motor just touch the wires to the battery to see if it will run.

Cheap voltmeter from Home Depot, Lowe’s or any hardware store. More useful than a single purpose tool


Thanks,
Rich

$6 will get you a volt meter at Harbor Freight, it is what I have used for the last 20 years.
