5 essential factors for choosing the right battery testing equipment

Feb 15, 2022 By: semco

In today’s electronic devices, lithium batteries are the most commonly used energy storage units. With the rising demand for battery-powered devices, the need for lithium battery testing also increases in order to ensure safety for end product users. The average battery current needs were around 5-10 Amps in the past while in the present times, the average can be up to 100-200 Amps or sometimes even more. The added power makes it all the more crucial to create a safe testing environment. Therefore, choosing the right battery testing equipment is an important decision for companies who are responsible for producing quality results, regardless of whether they are starting small, or at a large scale.

The expert engineers at Semco Infratech have been continuously progressing the benchmark of state of the art battery test equipment for over 15 years. We offer an array of products in the energy segment that is manufactured using top-quality materials for testing equipment as per the industry standards. Semco Infratech is defined by innovation. It is one of the top companies to offer high precision testing for lithium ion and other battery systems. We continue to work and learn with our industry partners on key technology systems. 

When it comes to battery selection, one thing to remember is there are no such things as a perfect battery that works right for every application. Selecting the right battery for your application base is about identifying the most important battery metrics.  Let’s have a detailed look at the five key factors to consider when choosing the right battery test equipment: 

  1. Energy Density: When comparing batteries, it is useful to look at the energy density. Energy density is determined by comparing the available potential energy to the overall total weight of the system. Thus, high energy density means your application has high potential energy for a low amount of weight whereas low energy density means your battery will be heavy and have less power. 
  2. Durability: Physical external factors such as temperature, humidity, vibrations, impact etc can greatly affect the performance of your battery. 
  3. Battery memory: This is yet another important factor to consider when choosing the battery testing equipment. For lack of a better term, batteries are susceptible to hold less than their total available charge capacity. 
  4. Lifetime: You should consider the charge life of the battery, that is, the amount of time that potential energy will stay in the battery.
  5. Physical size and shape: Batteries are usually available in the size of coin/button batteries, cylindrical batteries, prismatic batteries, and pouch batteries. (most of them are available in standardized formats)

There are many considerations when selecting battery test equipment. Several of these factors are as mentioned above while others are related to battery construction and design.
