Battery Brain: How brainy is it?

I was tasked to do a promo post for this innovative gadget for your car: the Battery Brain. So what is the battery brain? Battery brain is a little electronic device which you place between your battery and battery cable. Basically, as what it says on their website, Battery brain monitors your battery power and when it detects that the power needed to start your car is falling below the required level, Battery Brain will isolate the battery from your electrical system so you can be assured that you will always have enough power to start your engine.

I did a bit of research and visited the different car forums that I’m frequenting. It seems that Battery Brain has been popular with car enthusiasts although reviews about it are mixed. While it does what it says it does which monitors your car power and disconnects it from the electrical system, it may have some glitches with some cars that run too hot or those with problems with their car electrical system in the first place.

Some swear that the device works and they’ve been using it for years which I actually believe considering that one of those who had a problem with Battery brain says that he still uses the device since it actually saves the battery power but he just turns it off when his car is running so as not to create glitches with his car electrical system which he has yet to have fixed.

As for an anti-theft system, the Battery Brain with remote can actually be a good idea. You just press the remote so that Battery Brain can disconnect your battery from the electrical system and your car can’t be started or hot-wired.

If you want to try out Battery Brain, try going to their .net website instead of the .com to get 25% discount on their products.
