Charge the Batter and also have the Load Test the Battery.
We don't have Pep Boys or any of the other US stores up here. But when in USA, I took my E320 to an Advance Auto and they produced a printout showing my alternator was bad. I had a bad feeling about what they did, so took it to another store. There the young guy was a racing car guy, and knew what he was doing. He didn't even hook up the tester. Nothing wrong with alternator. 2 years later still good!

If alternator is to be tested, I would take it to a proper auto-electric shop. (Not Crappy Tire )
