Keywords:battery fuel gauge? charge-to-full? constant-current-discharge?

To maximise a battery fuel gauge's performance, the battery pack must be characterized so that the cell's behaviour can be fully understood. This application note outlines the setup and procedure for characterizing a battery, including an explanation of charge-to-full, constant-current-discharge, and stepped-discharge routines. The article also outlines a procedure to perform a stepped discharge.
