BATTERY SERVICE

VOLTAGE TESTING PROCESS

Voltage testing involves a 50% charge cycle for every battery followed by an overnight rest period. Then the battery is tested on a voltage meter. Any battery that holds a charge overnight is deemed passable, while any battery showing no power on the voltage meter is deemed to have failed the voltage test.

CADEX TESTING PROCESS

Cadex testing is performed by the Cadex C7400 analyzers. The analyzers are programmable to a wide range of voltage/current settings as per specific client specifications.

  • Self-Discharge determines the rate at which a battery loses charge.
  • BLC (Life Cycle) enumerates the number of charge/discharge cycles that remain before the battery capacity drops below selected target level.
  • Discharge Only discharges battery for storage or recycling
  • Ohm Test measures internal battery resistance every 6 seconds
  • Quick Test provides battery state-of-health in 5 minutes. Battery also undergoes a Ohm test and self-discharge test. Needs specific battery matrix.
  • Quick Sort (SoH) provides battery state-of-health in 2 minutes and is the most reliable and effective way to test most batteries

DATE CODES

At the client’s request, batteries can be sorted to fall within a specific manufacture date range. Date code selecting may reflect battery cost.

CHARGING SERVICE

At the client’s request, we can charge their batteries for them for a nominal fee.

OEM SOURCE INC. CADEX STICKER GUARANTEE

All tested batteries are marked with a white Cadex sticker that reflects the QC status and date of the test when it was performed. All batteries sold by OEM Source, Inc. which are marked by a white Cadex sticker are guaranteed to be Cadex tested according to specifications.
