What’s New… (March 01, 2006)

Failing Battery Detection

Battery Alert connects to a car’s battery in minutes to check the battery’s health every time the car is started. If the battery is likely to fail in the next few weeks, it emits a loud alarm for 10 seconds to warn the driver that it’s time to get the battery checked. Each time the vehicle is started this scenario will repeat itself until the battery is changed or another problem determined. The Battery Alert works on all 12-volt batteries.
