I am thinking that I will assemble 6 cells, 2 of yours, 2 of the Ones Eli is using, and 2 from a third vendor, and make them into a 6 cell test stick.
All cells will be datalogged while charging and discharging together so we will have a direct comparison................
What is the effect of position in the chain/series due to R/DeltaR of adjacent (or not) cell(s) and the connection(s) between them? Would not a parallel setup be more likely to yield more valid results?
I have answered at least 25 e-mails today , upgraded the labview datalogger, and spoke with 6 people on the phone, as well as shipping a charger and discharger.
It is 7pm, and I started at 8Am, and will likely be at it until I quit for dinner at 10PM or so. I do the same on weekends.
Tomorrow is my 67th birthday, so I am taking a day off.
I will get to it asap.
I am only set up to do the test in series, so that is what it will be, I will be building a cell level stick tester down the road that can be duplicated easily, so I can do multiple sticks at a time and hope to pass all my old sticks through it to determine where they stand, so the stick format is the way it makes the most sense for me.
