The DOE has developed a manual for testing the life of batteries in production. While not a formal part of the USABC process, the test methods in the manual are aligned with the USABC methods. You may access this Battery Technology Life Verification Manual from Idaho National Laboratory at: http://avt.inl.gov/battery/pdf/TechLifeVerificationTestManual.pdf
