There is a difference between checking voltage with a handheld meter and having a battery Load Tested. A load tester simulates the work load of starting on a cold day, and tests the batteries voltage, amperage, and reserve capacity under strain. If you battery losses one of its cells, it will still show 12 volts or more, but it will have difficulty starting an engine.
The starting/charing system is very simple, battery, alternator, starter, and wires. All of them have to be in good condition and correctly functioning. If the wires are loose or internally corroded, they will have high resistance and will not allow voltage/amperage to flow for charging or for starting.
A recent Gallup public opinion poll shows the NRA, at 58% approval, has a higher approval rating than either Hillary Clinton or Barack Obama.
