New SOK battery evaluation?

Hello. I just ordered a pair of SOK 12V 100A LFP batteries to use in a 2P array. What tests do I need to run when I get them to be sure they're as good as I should expect?

Other than a DVM, I don't have any testing equipment. I also don't have a Lithium-compatible charger. I intend to use my OEM WFCO 8955 charger (yes, I know it's cheap) and rely on my MPPT SCC to charge them fully. Do I need to buy some testing and/or charging equipment before placing them in service?

Thanks. I have a QWork battery monitor that I could use to test capacity but it won't shut off automatically. Is it safe to just leave the load on and assume the BMS will shut itself off?
