In this special episode, we went live at the company’s recent Open House! The Battery Blarney duo welcomed questions from the audience about Ohmic testing on a battery, how the rules apply to a NiCad battery, and many more. We were excited to answer these questions and give our audience a behind-the-scenes look at what goes into testing batteries. Our hope is that by answering these questions, we can help people better understand batteries and how they work. Thanks for tuning in!
Due to questions from the audience being inaudible at times, a voice was dubbed in during the editing process.
[04:27] – So, if you have to do Ohmic testing on a battery, and you see you need to add some liquid, are you supposed to wait a certain amount of time before you can actually test it properly? What’s the recommended timeframe?
[09:32] – How do the rules apply to a NiCad battery?
[25:35] – Allen, have you come across a lot of stratification in flooded cells, and how would you go about testing for it, or looking for it? This is for you because I know what George thinks about it.
[28:36] – If the whole battery’s sitting there static for a long time, most of the cells will stratify to a certain extent, and the voltage is going to be the same for all of them because they’re all stratified.
