Okay, I have asked a million questions, and everyone here has been great at helping me understand everything I did wrong.
Since I have no knowledge to contribute, how about something a bit different than "Burning Down the House."
The Joy of Sorting Cells--I should come up with the Zen of this as well.
Here is what I am doing--my process.
The Zip lock bags contain the days processed 18650s (IR, charge, capacity discharge, re-charge, IR). There are 25 of them, for the 25 days they then sit to get tested for self-discharge.
The bins contain the cells after their 25 days of "time out," for self-discharge. They are grouped by 10 mAhrs--although that is certainly below the noise level I get with the Opus. At one point I had a small secondary fan blowing down into the two Opus I use, this reduced the capacity measured by about 50 mAhrs by cooling the cells down. I stopped that so the assessment would be fairly uniform, if not accurate.
I am getting to where some bins are close to overflowing.
How do you sort your cells?
