    Hi all,

    I was wondering what exactly is lost in batteries as the number of charges go up? Does the internal resistance increase? Can it not hold the charge the battery is indicated for? It would be really nice if there were charts of a new battery vs an older battery of the same time after a few hundred charges.

    Most of the discussions are about new batteries and how long they last etc, and if this has been discussed before, I apologize!

    Could someone please enlighten me?

    Thanks!

    It depends on the chemistry of the battery and how it's being charged and most importantly to what level it's charged... and what level of charge the battery spends most of it's time at and how hard the battery is worked... it's all about the 'stress' on the specific battery type.

    Here is a great article that leads to many more... I presume you are talking about the Lithium based batteries which are commonly used for vaping gear, laptops, phones, etc,. ;)
