INDEPENDENT BATTERY TESTING

Compare unbiased real-time battery performance data

Our battery performance testing takes place in a climate controlled building at the Canberra Institute of Technology, and will run for three years. The eight batteries selected include six lithium-ion batteries, one conventional lead acid battery and one advanced lead battery. These batteries were shortlisted because they are commercially available, cover a spectrum of prices and chemistry variants, and can be controlled by one central battery management system.

OUR TESTING FOCUSES ON:

  • Battery performance in a range of high and low temperatures
  • Reliability
  • Changes to battery storage capacity over time
  • Energy efficiency
  • Cost-effectiveness
  • Comparison of battery performance against manufacturers’ claims
