Obviously, doing this over and over takes a toll and ultimately as the cycles continued, some of the batteries started to fail the capacity test by reaching the cutoff voltage before they were supposed to--in other words, the capacity dropped below the 80-percent level--at which point we stopped testing that battery.
15 and 16 demonstrate a narrowing of the conical top envelope associated with increased cutoff voltage, which has its experimental counterpart in experimental behavior under increased pressure.
The unique fractional gain switching architecture implemented in the LM3352 helps maintain high efficiency at high load currents through an entire Lithium-ion battery pack discharge cycle, even when the cutoff voltage is reduced to new lows," said Venkatesh Shan, National's power management marketing director.
The dedicated tester is a push-button, walkaway design with the capacity percentage displayed after the tester automatically shuts down at the proper cutoff voltage.
With the VDC Battery Minder, on the other hand, we would like to see a higher charge cutoff voltage for optimal charging and a lower voltage trickle mode for long battery life.
