Battery temperature

  • The Battery temperature chart illustrates the battery temperature during each inspection and applies commonly stated battery life expectancy compensation based on average battery temperature.
  • It generates a life expectancy comment in the Assessment comments at the top of the Analysis section.
  • If the battery is Dedicated to a truck, the Estimated hours/cycles remaining displayed on the Estimated hours/cycles remaining chart are reduced based on the temperature compensation factor.
  • When used in conjunction with the Percent charged chart and considering the Positive plate growth and Positive plate shedding inspection comments in the Assessment section it helps to identify and inform of damaging usage and charging practices.
