How to Store your Batteries using a Cadex Analyzer
Medset is a proud to be Canadian distributor of CADEX products. An award-winning company, Cadex Electronics has been in business for over 40 years. Did you know the word Cadex is derived from CADmium-EXerciser?
Different battery chemistries have specific requirements for storage. When storing batteries, temperature is important but also the SoC (state of charge) should be considered. Following are a few basic pointers on battery storage:
Lead acid: How to store a Lead Acid Battery
|Fully charge before storing
– Partial charge causes sulfation
– Self-discharge increases with heat
– Topping-charge every 6 monthsUse the Charge Program with the Cadex C7X00 C-Series Analyzer
NiCd, NiMH: How to store a Nickle based Battery
|No preparation needed
– Can be stored charged or empty
Li-ion: How to store a Lithium Ion Battery
|Store at 30-60% SoC (State of Charge)
– Charge empty Li-ion to 3.80V/cell
– Discharge full Li-ion to 3.75V/cell (3.80V/cell relates to ~50% SoC
– Top-charge every 6 months
Use the Custom Program with the Cadex C7X00 C-Series Analyzer to bring the batteries to a specific SoC level (this works also for recharging after a while).

Her job is to greet visitors (which she happily does) and to not get into things (she tries). She is a great to have around our busy office – and even though she really likes to sleep, she will rise to the occasion if someone wants to give her a pet or a treat.

Happy St. Patrick’s Day!
Many of our customers have had the pleasure of working with Bill regarding technical and product support, quotations, or just general troubleshooting. He also manages our inventory (a challenging job these days!). Hailing originally from Newfoundland, Bill has been with Medset for over 17 years.
Bill’s (temporary!) green beard is a nod to his Irish heritage – HAPPY SAINT PATRICK’S DAY!!!
