Hi there,

This article (from Circuit Cellar) may help you kick-start your project. :)
This article tells you how-to build the battery load/charge analyzer (using the Motorola MC68HC705c8 microcontroller)

PIC based NiCd, NiMh and LiIon accu charger with source code for CCS C compiler. You can find schematics, PCB layout and PC interfacing SW as well.

... so it seems to be as I thought! there's nothing to determine the battery capacity simply connecting without caharge or discharge it!
It's ok...thanks
