Battery Techncial Sections BCIS-06-08: BCI Recommended Specifications for Cycle Life Testing of Electric Vehicle & Cycling Batteries
BCIS-06-08 provides a recommended method for cycle life testing Electrical Vehicle and Cycling batteries using charge and discharge rates and times commonly observed in lead-acid batteries used in golf cars, floor scrubbers, personnel carriers, RV’s & marine trolling motors, small mine tractors, over-the-road vehicles, and other deep cycling applications. Battery technologies include flooded types with access or without access to the electrolyte and VRLA (valve regulated lead-acid) construction of both AGM (absorbed glass mat) and gelled electrolyte types. Not included are large motive power (industrial traction) batteries used in material handling equipment. The test procedure is designed to provide a standard basis for comparison of products and for evaluation of performance in the production and development of batteries.
