The IEC61960 Standard defines Marking Criteria for Rechargeable Batteries (Secondary Batteries) containing Alkaline and other non-acid electrolytes including secondary Lithium Cells and batteries for portable applications. It also includes Battery Electrical testing for the following tests to ensure consistency: discharge performance, test charge capacity retention, and recovery endurance in cycles battery, internal DC resistance, and AC resistance. This application note will define equipment and software to support these tests.
