Individual tests



Comparision of capacity at all currents
Select the two batteries to compare, both set of curves will be shown in the chart.
The dark trace is from the B battery in the test (With primary batteries I have only tested one battery, i.e. no B trace).

Usual NiMH capacity is specified down to 1.0 volt and alkaline/lithium down to 0.8 volt.

Note: All NiMH test from 2014 is with new test equipment, this means that small difference between older test, might be due to equipment, not due to the actual cell.
