Here's a Question about Continuous Battery Monitoring

If you are still manually testing your batteries, I have a question - Why?

Really. I want to know why anyone who has done any level of decent research in the last 3-5 years would continue to perform manual tests on their backup battery power.

Let's discuss the top objections I've come across (In no particular order). I will give a little hint to my responses; they all are covered if you have done any type of decent research in the past 3-5 years. (Click here to read more)

BatteryDAQ Introduces First Explosion-Proof Battery Monitoring System

The thing is, when you manufacture products for global markets, it is necessary to listen to your Customers, as their requirements change.  On each occasion, the manufacturer must then decide if it can create a solution to meet the changing requirements.  Even further, when a country or continent changes requirements, the manufacturer would be wise to anticipate whether those requirements will be adopted by other countries, as well.
