The electronics package can communicate with on-board systems if desired, and alert services like On Star that the battery is in need of attention or replacement. An internal default switch prevents thermal runaway--a deep-discharge condition caused by a significant increase in the heat generated by the main battery--and the battery can be switched off and removed from the electrical system without disconnecting the battery cables. With battery as the number-one reason for vehicle starting problems, Reserve Power Cell thinks the Intellicell will give an extra margin of both safety and customer satisfaction.
