4. When the battery is discharged the ScopeMeter will shut down. Now connect the BC190, turn the power on and check the length of the TrendPlot trace. For a new battery pack this should be about 4 hours. Depending on the number of applied charge cycles the battery capacity will decrease. If the TrendPlot trace has a length of 3 hours or less you may consider to replace the battery pack.
