This helps operators identify a deteriorating battery cell prior to damage to the rest of the battery cell bank. They are customizable with a web-based user interface for viewing historical data to identify bad or deteriorating cells. Additionally, the battery cell monitors estimate the remaining battery capacity based on amp-hours consumed, discharge current temperature, and battery age. It also estimates the remaining runtime based on battery capacity and average load over a period of time.
