Question ? LiPo Battery internal resistance measurement  

 The optimal environment for LiPo batteries depends on what you do with them.

  • Optimal performance: 50°C to 60°C. This also means that this is the temperature at which the cell Internal Resistance (IR) is the lowest.
  • Storage temperature: 10°C to 20°C. At 10°C or below, do not charge the cells at more than 4.1V/Cell

The problem now is - as we can't heat up the cells to 50°C for our testings - to find the coefficient to apply to the temperature at the moment of measuring the cells.

Quote found on the internet of someone having spent quite some time with this topic:
My personal internal resistance number for high performance cells is 12000 / cell capacity, when measured after stabilization at room temp (~21C) for 1 hour minimum.. Anything around or below this number I consider to be outstanding performance.

See the attached Graph for an idea on what influence temperatures have. Also - this graph was taken from the following thread

This is what the Computation will be based on, after applying the correction factor for the temperature.
