    I’m stripping laptop batteries down for 18650 cells and charging them using tp4056 boards.
    I’m currently discharging them to get a capacity reading using a turnigy Accucell 6.

    The Accucell treats li-ions as 3.6v nominal and LiPo as 3.7v there doesn’t seem to be any way of changing this

    Should I use the Li-ion setting regardless of whether I have 3.6v or 3.7v cells ? ( as determined by the database or the laptop pack info )

    Or should I be using the lipo setting to do the discharge on a 3.7v cell to obtain a more accurate reading ?

    What if I cannot determine if a cell is 3.6 or 3.7 ?

    What should I treat it as for best performance / life?
    Please help.

    I didn’t find the right solution from the Internet.
