A smart battery is a rechargeable battery equipped with specialised hardware that provides present state, calculated and predicted information to the host system under software control, providing accurate state-of-charge information and an accurate prediction of the remaining operating time. The smart battery holds its own information, a given host device will be able to accommodate multiple battery chemistries and charge appropriately.
