    Hi All,

    I am trying to load test individual battery cells in my hybrid battery pack. I did some research over Youtube and Internet, but couldn't find the clear answer.

    So, my question is:
    When you load test individual cell, how many load(amps) should apply? I saw that someone recommending 6 amps load using a headlight bulb. Someone else used load tester for 6/12v with 100 amp load, which is designed for 12v car lead acid car battery testing. So, How should I conduct the load test and what amount of load should apply? and tools used?

    Your suggestions will be very much appreciated.

    Thanks,
    Cyon
