Battery modelling techniques are one of the rapidly advancing means of predicting battery life — in all chemistries, as Professor Bor Liaww explains, with a very full reading list!
To predict a battery's life is often an interesting inquiry and challenging contention among battery experts. So, can it be done?
Batteries, no matter if they are primary (disposable) or secondary (rechargeable), are so integrated into our daily life that its illusion of reliability is of great concern to many users who rely heavily upon them. How often did your cellular phone battery fail when you needed the most . . .
