I was under the impression that, at least with LFP, even one "draw down to dead flat 0.0V" event

will result in instant death, time to scrap that cell.

Is that not the case?
Hi John
I believe that a cell can survive going down quite low - the instant death bit is when the other cells in its string then make it reverse polarity

That is NOT to say a cell will survive going down low!

Reading this thread it seems to me that you guys are talking across each other

DTbaker seems to have NOT a cell imbalance problem but a cell self discharge problem

If he starts with a balanced pack some of the cells slowly diverge from the others

If that simply happens with time then those cells are self discharging
