As for function to test lithium-ion cells, it will be implemented soon in the test bench , our developpers currently working on such function.
As test bench is updatable, when such function will be released we will update test bench for you . Updates are free
Test bench could identify such dead cells, and it could charge cells to needed level , if the cell is still working.
Moreover it balance all cells to needed same level.
3)As for point that car could do balancing without taking the battery out
The car does this while the battery is in good working condition. However, if it needs to be repaired and all the cells inside should be replaced with completely new ones, then no tester or equipment is needed to test the battery. But it’s expensive to replace everything at once, and I don’t know who does that. We only replace defective items and this requires special equipment Any questions
