Phillips Industries Releases Next Generation Battery Status Indicator – V-CHECK™ II

Santa Fe Springs, CA (January 9, 2013) Phillips Industries has introduced the next generation of their V-CHECK™ battery status indictor, a simple device that gives 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.  If the V-CHECK™ II signals less than optimum power, the battery can be charged before a situation occurs where battery power is required but not available.


The Phillips V-CHECK™ II features a large display surface for the digital read out 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 12.6V to greater than 15V, yellow between 12.4V and 12.5V and red below 9V – 12.3V.  It’s simple to install and gives the vehicle operator information that is critical to minimizing downtime caused by lack of battery power to complete required tasks.

Phillips’s new 12 volt V-CHECK™II Battery Status Indicator, part number 60-9100, is available through Phillips authorized distributors.
