Perhaps this is a time to introduce the unit Mho. ie: 1/R -----

7 to 13 Mho , the cell is excellant and 2.9 to 4 Mho, it's getting bad.

Using this measure gives a high numerical rating for good cells vs low numbers for degraded cells..

I found a 3 Ohm 5 Watt ceramic resistor. This will give me a ~1.3 Amp load. This is short of the 2+ Amp loads often required in 445's and big greens but suitable for this cell testing.
