The Battery Metric analyzers and modules together with the associated software tools create a system that allows the user full control to specify many battery charge, discharge and test parameters. In addition, the system has options to modify the calibration by the user. These capabilities are designed to provide the user with maximum flexibility to manage many different battery types in many different situations. This capability, by it’s very nature, also creates the possibility for the user to use improper charge, discharge , test or calibration parameters. When used improperly, by accident, inadvertently, by mistake or with lack of proper knowledge and training or if the software files become damaged, the system can fail to properly manage the battery under charge, discharge or test. This can damage batteries and as a result a battery could leak, overheat, explode or catch fire. This could create a dangerous situation involving fires, property damage, personal injury or death.

It is expected that this system will be used with this information in mind. The user understands this situation and agrees to use due diligence when using this system. The user should only charge LiIon and LiPo batteries that have built in protection circuitry to protect against the possibility of applying improper voltage or current to the battery. Most consumer type LiIon batteries do have built in protection circuitry. If you are uncertain if the LiIon or LiPo battery has built in protection circuitry, check with the battery manufacturer. Always charge, discharge and test all batteries according to the battery manufacturer’s specifications. Users should verify that proper voltages and currents are being applied with their own voltage and current measurement equipment.

This manual is a guide to using the Battery Console software application. It is not a training manual for understanding proper battery management, charging, discharging and testing. It is expected the user will have this knowledge. The Battery Metric system is a battery management platform to be used by knowledgeable trained staff. It is not a consumer type product. Read and follow the Safety Precautions listed in Safety section.
