(Ni-mH battery testing)
In order to determine whether tested batteries good but simply discharged, or bad batteries that are no longer capable of taking a full charge, the operator must have knowledge of when the battery was last charged.
It is recommended that Ni-mH batteries are fully charged before testing (if possible, let the batteries sit off the charger for at least one hour prior to testing).
A good battery that has been fully charged should test at 100%. Batteries that are aging or are no longer capable of taking a full charge will test lower even after fully charging, for example 40%, 20% etc.
For devices that use multiple batteries, it is good policy to verify that all the batteries in the set are matched in capacity/charge. For example, don't mix 80% batteries with 20%.
When testing batteries, make sure to make good electrical contact during the test cycle. ZTS recommend holding the negative probe vertically and pressing firmly straight down onto the battery during the entire load test (while LEDs are 'running').
