1. voltage testing
2. gravity testing
3. timed discharge testing

Thermographers routinely look at battery backup systems that are under trickle charge. Even very low thermal anomalies under these conditions can indicate a serious problem, as the power dissipated in such an anomaly when the battery is producing full output can be 1,000,000 times that produced under trickle charge.
