How do I use a multimeter to test a battery?
Use a Multimeter You first need to set the meter to 20 DC volts. Touch the negative meter probe with the negative battery terminal (black), and the positive meter probe with the positive battery terminal (red). You should then ask someone to turn on your car’s headlights so that the battery gets a light load.

How do I know if my lithium battery is bad?
Remove the battery and put a voltmeter on it and post the voltage you get and then put battery inside. If the battery is dead or at the end of life, then it won’t take charge anymore. If the battery is dead or at the end of life, the battery will swell a bit.
