    I have a problem on determining batteries capacity. I want to
    determine the two batteries capacity and without discharge them.
  2. Yes indeed you do have a problem if the nanufacturers can't tell you their
    capacity and you don't want to discharge them.

    If they are alkaline batteries, the capacity is about 16 amp hours
    for a 'D' cell that weighs 6 ounces. For smaller alkaline batteries,
    just put it on a scale and extrapolate the capacity from the weight.
