To reliably deploy lithium-ion batteries, a fundamental understanding of cycling and aging behavior is critical. Battery aging, however, consists of complex and highly coupled phenomena, making it challenging to develop a holistic interpretation. In this work, we generate a diverse battery cycling dataset with a broad range of degradation trajectories, consisting of 363 high energy density commercial Li(Ni,Co,Al)O$_2$/Graphite + SiO$_x$ cylindrical 21700 cells cycled under 218 unique cycling protocols. We consolidate aging via 16 mechanistic state-of-health (SOH) metrics, including cell-level performance metrics, electrode-specific capacities/state-of-charges (SOCs), and aging trajectory descriptors. Through the use of interpretable machine learning and explainable features, we deconvolute the underlying factors that contribute to battery degradation. This generalizable data-driven framework reveals the complex interplay between cycling conditions, degradation modes, and SOH, representing a holistic approach towards understanding battery aging.
