Cellphone Battery Tester Jig

       I have about 30pcs of cellphone battery to use in projects and nevery really got around to testing each. since they are old stock, some are nearing full discharge and damage is imminent so I had to charge and test each one.

       I have the LiitoKala charger/tester which works well but it only accepts cylindrical cells so I had to make a jig.

I made these from blank PCB material. This took less than an hour from thinking how to making it work so pardon if it is not well thought out.

Put some pogo pins for the battery contact.

Close up of the pogo pins connecting to the batt contacts.

Some right angle pin headers to reach the charger contacts.

All four inserted to the battery charger.

Now testing the pile of batteries.
