Presentation Summary

Dukosi cell monitoring system technology allows the life history of every cell to be recorded, within the cell, from manufacture through first and second life to recycling. This removes the need to test packs prior to second life use, you just need to ask the cells about their condition. The talk will explore what data can be kept, what it might signify and how it can be used to increase second life value.
