(100 amp-hour battery?)

Wouldn't that insure that the manufacture sent you a pre-tested battery, po=
ssibly hand selected to exceed data sheet ratings? Seems to me the only wa=
y to ensure you get a 'typical' battery is to buy it yourself without letti=
ng anyone know it's a battery for testing.

Why would you only publish the best test, and not all your data? So more m=
anufactures would be willing to send you free batteries?

What equipment do you have? What testing procedure would you use? What wo=
uld you measure and how? Do you have already published results from previo=
us tests?
