A method of computing the state of charge for a battery including the steps of sensing the battery voltage and current, and computing the used battery capacity, C.sub.u, and the average battery current, I. The total battery capacity, C.sub.t is calculated from average current using the Peukert equation. The state of charge is calculated as a function of C.sub.u /C.sub.t to account for temperature and aging effects, recuperation effects, regeneration effects, and current variation effects.
