A battery monitor which monitors the operating parameters of a battery to provide an indication of, for example, the absolute state of charge, the relative state of charge, and the capacity of the battery under battery discharge, rest, and recharge conditions. The battery monitor includes a current sensor for sensing battery current, a voltage sensor for sensing battery voltage, and a temperature sensor for sensing battery temperature. A processor approximates to a high level of accuracy the battery parameters utilizing an iterative process based upon predetermined relationships, employing empirically determined constants and parameters determined in the immediately proceeding iteration stored in memory. Output signals indicative of the determined parameters are provided and may be utilized for many different battery applications.
