Perhaps this is true of some more recent test regimen he has adopted; what he
described in the presentation I'm referring to was the use of high precision
measurements of the coulombic efficiency to allow prediction of the lifetime
based on measurements made over the course of days or weeks rather than months
Measuring the coulombic efficiency requires cycling the cell(s), as what one is
interested in is how much of the energy delivered to the cell on each charge
cycle is *not* recovered on the subsequent discharge.

The presentation I am referring to was the keynote address at the Large Lithium
Ion Battery Technology and Application (LLIBTA) Symposium as part of the 2012
Advanced Automotive Battery Conference (AABC). I expect that the organisers
would be more than happy to sell you a copy of the LLIBTA 2012 proceedings:
