Battery testing FAQs
Regular battery testing will allow trending of the battery's health and an estimation of the remaining life of the battery. The IEEE and NERC recommends two types of tests:
An impedance test mesures the condition of the entire electrical path of the battery from one terminal plate to another. This reveals any weaknesses in cells and inter-cell connectors, and is often used to establish a baseline value for the battery.
A capacity or discharge test is the only way to get an accurate value of the actual capacity of the battery.
