Once the battery had gone through its factory acceptance in witness of SURTES, the final quality checks were made to ensure all systems were functioning correctly.
This included cycling the battery a sufficient number of times to ensure that all the cells had bedded down nicely and were in an optimal state to perform on race day.
Just for good measure, we integrated the battery with some monitoring software so the SURTES team could view vital statistics of the battery over bluetooth on a tablet or laptop to help them perform monitoring and diagnostics.
Although this Lithium battery is a backup to their primary battery we hope to see it running soon and see it stretch its legs.
Altertek are looking forward to the continued sponsorship and working together with Surrey University.
Good luck SURTES!!
