Thermal imaging batteries

Thermal imaging locates hot spots by examining the IR spectrum. Heat is the enemy of batteries.  A riseof just10°C willdeplete the lifeof a batteryby half. As molecules heat up,they move faster. This increases the rate of chemical reactions. This will increase the rate of oxidation that leads to corrosion. It will also increase the rate ofdry out in VRLA batteries. Heating will reduce the life of any battery regardless of the chemistry.
