DIY Arduino Battery Capacity Tester - V1.0

I have salvaged so many old lap-top batteries ( 18650 ) to reuse them in my solar projects.It is very difficult to identify the good cells in battery pack.Earlier in one of my Power Bank Instructable I have told, how to identify good cells by measuring their voltages, but this method is not at all reliable.So I really wanted a way to measure each cell exact capacity instead of their voltages. Few week ago, I have started the project from the basics.This version is really simple one,which is based on Ohms Law.The accuracy of the tester won’t be 100% perfect, but it does give reasonable results that can be used and compared with other battery, so you can easily identify good cells in a old battery pack. During my work I realised, their are lot of things which can be improved.In future I will try to implement those things. But for the time being I am happy with it.I hope this little tester will be useful, so I am sharing it with you all.”
