- repeat for 10-20 times on each battery to see how it degrades after charges.
I am looking for app recommendations to do it and also for battery suggestions for the test.
Please submit your ideas and thoughts.
I wasn't aware that you'd need to record HD Video to run it down. You can, however, find extended play videos on youtube. For the sake of eliminating variables, I'd choose the same video at all times, run the tests in the same location (preferably at the same time of day), and turn on all services (NFC, GPS, bluetooth, gestures, etc) except wifi. Wi-fi would give you too steady of a signal and the battery is generally more stressed when running on cellular. That being said, that much cellular data being streamed over the course of days may use up a lot of data. If you decide to run these tests on wifi, the time of day you run them becomes irrelevant - you can run them at will. If you plan on running the tests that many times, this project should take you months. I would think 3 times would be adequate enough to determine an average life-cycle. Popular batteries out there are listed in the accessories thread. They shouldn't be hard to find.
