PowerLab 6 and Hybrid Chemistry Cells


I am new to using the PowerLab6 and I can't quite seem to figure out how to do discharge tests with hybrid chemistry cells. I am only doing single cell testing and I want to do it on the Samsung INR18650-25R5, LG 18650HG2, LG ICR18650HE4, Sony US18650VTC5, and Sanyo UR18650-NSX cells. I can't seem to find anywhere if this is even possible, and if it is, I would greatly appreciate any instructions on how I would go about doing this. Thanks!

Good Day,

An 18650 cell is a Lithium Ion cell and will charge the same as a Lithium Polymer cell which is supported in your charger.

Except its not compatible other than top voltage. Since they discharge to 2.5V and charge from 2.5v and so it wont allow it.

And it also wont allow charging of packs without balance leads, and many have non. Require non, and have built in balance and under/over voltage protection.

Other than 2S max, and then it has a 15 min CV limit which is around 1.5 hours short!

So not really...
