The Phillips Battery Status Indicator can be added to monitor the state of power for any battery, particularly liftgate batteries.

It alerts operators during pre-trip inspections that battery power may be lower than required. If battery voltage is more than 12.4 volts or 75 percent power, the LED light flashes green. If the voltage falls below 12.39 volts, the light will blink red, indicating that batteries should be charged before the trailer leaves on the next trip.

Phillips' new Battery Status Indicator, part number 60-9000, is available through Phillips authorized distributors.
