BattMan II: A Computer Controlled Battery Manager

BattMan II: A Computer Controlled Battery Manager

BattMan II is a computer controlled battery manager, intended for typical rechargeable batteries used by R/C and electronics hobbyists, as well as various consumer product batteries.
BattMan II has the following capabilities:
Works with Nickel-Cadmium (NiCd), Nickel-Metal-Hydride (NiMH), Lithium-Ion (Li-Ion), Lithium-Polymer (LiPo), Lithium-Nano-Phosphate (LiNP), and Lead-Acid (Pb-Acid) batteries of 1.2 to 14.7 Volts.†
Discharges batteries to measure capacity at rates of 130mA to 2A.
Charges at rates of 130mA to 1.3A.†
Automatically performs repeated discharge/charge cycles to break in new batteries, or erase NiCd voltage depression in old ones.
Measures internal resistance.
Monitors self-discharge.
Real time graphical display lets you see problems like mismatched cells.
Keeps a log of all operations performed, which can be imported into any spreadsheet program.
Saves graphs of charge, discharge, auto-cycle, and monitor operations.
Connects via parallel port to any PC running Microsoft Windows (95, 98, ME, 2000, XP, or Vista).††
