Battery Fuel Gauges: Introduction
- A battery fuel gauge helps predict the status of health and state of charge of batteries. In other words, it helps determine how long a battery would continue to work under specific operating conditions.
- A battery fuel gauge is composed of an integrated hardware protection and second-level protection against permanent failure
- Battery fuel gauges are useful in various single-cell as well as multiple-cell battery packs of laptops, power tools, smartphones, notebooks, and energy storage systems.
- Moreover, they are also useful for higher-voltage batteries
