The promised BEST battery testing service has arrived. We’re calling it BEST Battery Reviews (BBR).
Says Mike McDonagh, BEST magazine’s technical editor, who’ll be heading up the service: “How practical is reading the advertising blurb of battery producers? Of what relevance are the endless tables of data found in manufacturers catalogues? How do you know how this battery will stand up in your application— under real conditions outside of IEC, JIS or ANSI standards? And what else are you looking for in a battery or charger which is not found in manufacturers’ data?”
