Battery powered, this handy three-in-one multi-function tester from Laser Tools (part number 6378) is a tyre pressure gauge as well as a main battery and alternator tester. A bright LED work light is also included.

Very easy to use, the tyre pressure gauge function is useful as it lets you record the pressure of each individual tyre, while it’s also very easy to check the power of your car’s main battery; simply plug into the 12-volt socket, turn on the ignition and the tester displays the battery voltage and status (low, mid or full). Switch to alternator test mode, switch on the engine and rev to 2000rpm, and the alternator voltage output is displayed.

A useful little tester to keep in the glove box and available now from your local Laser Tools supplier, typically priced at £34.44 inc VAT, but remember to check for the best prices and special offers.
