I have a load which can also be set to "Battery test". I can easily discharge a Li-ion battery using the CC (contant-current) mode, which is also a condition recommended by the manufacturers. For example, a typical recommendation would be:
Discharge CC (18A) to 2.0V @ 20degC
I have worked with CC before and it works as expected. But what about CV (contant-voltage)? One can never see that on the specs/recommendations. If I set one knob to CV and use the "Battery Test" setting, it says that I can't use it. So I assumed that the load doesn't really like the idea of CV and I was wondering why?
I could switch to another type of load (not "Battery Testing"), where I can actually set the CV, but I'm afraid that this would destroy the battery. Can anyone help me to figure out whether or not I could force CV into the battery and why is there no CV into the battery-testing option? Thank you
