Discharge tests of CR123A lithium manganese dioxide style batteries
Custom design and manufacture of state-of-the-art battery chargers, DC/DC Converters, and power supplies
Testing CR123A (CR17335) batteries at high current rates
1. New Batteries are purchased from a retailer to make sure they are fresh.
2. This test is not to compare batteries for normal operation, they are designed for low current draw and these tests are for high current draw. This information is to help design engineers know what to expect when the batteries are used under these circumstances.
3. The performance rankings may be different for low current applications.
4. Note that for most applications these discharge currents are extreme, at lower discharge currents you will get much higher voltages and longer run times.
