I suspect my batteries are fake, so I'm running a Chem ID Matching.
And for that, I'm following SLVA725A.
Just some questions:
1) SLVA725A says: "Charge using CC or CV charging to full using taper current. (For example, C/100.) Use nominal CC charge rate and CV voltage." - But what if I don't know my battery's C? It should be 3400mAh, but it's probably fake and it's really 1000mAh.
2) SLVA725A then says: "Discharge the battery at C/10 rate until the minimal voltage (as specified by the cell manufacturer) is reached." - Same here. Which C should I use? 3400?
3) Just to clarify because this always confuses me: Taper Current is the current you get across time when you just apply a constant voltage to the battery to charge it, right? If so, on (1) above: "...using taper current. (For example, C/100.)", C/100 also means Taper Current on this situation? Sorry for this question, but TI's documentation always confuses me with these statements, specially since english is my 2nd language.
Thanks for your time
