Phillips Industries has unveiled the next generation of its V-Check battery status indicator. The device provides an immediate signal of available battery power.

The V-Check II digitally monitors the state of power for any battery, particularly lift gate batteries, to ensure all work that needs to be performed can be performed, Phillips said. If a signal of less than optimum power is shown, the battery can be charged before a situation occurs where battery power is required but not available.

The V-Check II features a large display surface for the digital readout of the battery state of charge.  Both the voltage measurement and percentage of battery life remaining appear every 15 seconds. The Go/No-Go LED light feature instantly shows if the battery is ready to complete the day’s work. Green indicates available power of 12.6V to greater than 15V, yellow between 12.4V and 12.5V and red below 12.3V.
