WHAT ARE SMART BATTERIES

Medical Device, Defence & Security, Industrial Electronics, Portable Electronic Device and Robotics OEMs worldwide rely since years on Smart Battery Packs. A smart battery is any rechargeable battery that has an internal electronic fuel gauging, active safety systems, electronic circuit and sensors that can detect voltage and current levels as well as other parameters such as state of health and then communicate them to the device and, as an extension, to the user through special data connections.

The standard communication interface is the SMBus, based on a two-wire system (I2C) using a standardized communications protocol. This system lends itself to standardized state-of-charge and state-of-health measurements.
