I have a number of batteries that I would like to put apply small load to check the voltage. Hopefully it will give me an idea of the capacity that would be in the battery versus a new battery.
The battery is a SAFT LSG14250 3.6v Lithium 1/2AA. I understand there is something special about these particular batteries but I do not know what exactly.... other than they are made in France!!
They are used for a security door/window sensors that transmits a319.5MHz signals to a receiver as to the condition open/close.
Therefore the actual load is small since the batteries last a number of years.
What I am asking is what would be an appropriate resistive load to place on the battery briefly while checking the voltage with my Fluke 111 Multi-meter?? 10 ohms-1000 ohms-10000 ohms or something different??.
I know this may not be a 100% perfect true or proper load test but I just want to be in a good range.
I also know that it would be better to do a current test for amps but I just thought a quick load voltage test for a few seconds would work.
Thanks in advance for any and all hints.
