A replacement storage battery identifier is entered into the battery tester that identifies the replacement storage battery. The battery tester performs a battery test on the replacement storage battery. A replacement battery test code is generated using the battery test and the replacement storage battery identifier. The replacement battery test code is communicated to a centralized database. The replacement battery test code is associated with a battery test code related to the previously purchased storage battery in the centralized database.
