Depassivation

Many applications may cause the cell voltage to dip below the minimum required operating voltage of the user's device.  If the device cannot handle this dip in voltage (i.e., reset, turn-off, fail, etc.), then the cells must be "depassivated" prior to use.  Depassivation consists of placing a resistive load or a constant load on the cell for a short period of time.  The purpose of this is to pre-condition the cell to where it does not drop below the minimum voltage of the device once the load is applied.  This is done by advancing the discharge past the point of the voltage dip.
