This month's meeting (by Zoom):

The Humble 12V Battery - Friend or Foe? 
Presenter: Mark Roberts BEng(Hons), MIET, SAE-A

Thursday July 28 2022 at 5:30 pm EST

The humble 12V lead-acid AGM battery. Whether you drive a fancy electric vehicle or the traditional internal combustion version, chances are you have owned or had the pleasure of replacing one of these batteries before. But are they more than just a giant AA battery?

Mark will cover the unique intricacies of 12V AGM batties and, in particular, what transpires when your vehicle's 12V lead-acid battery is pushed beyond its normal operating conditions.

As dangerous as its lithium cousin?... there's potential!     

Mark is a Technical Consultant with Envista Forensic and is based in Melbourne. Mark has spent his last year with Envista investigating electrical, electronic and electromechanical failures through a wide range of insurance-related matters, as well as project managing recommissioning events. Prior to his indoctrination into the forensics engineering industry, Mark functioned as a 12V & 48V Energy Management Engineer within Bentley Motors in the United Kingdom.   Responsible for the integration and project management of all 12V Energy Containers and 48V Supercapacitors within Bentley's ICE and PHEV vehicle architectures, Mark spent the majority of his time in Germany and Sweden, prototyping and validating future vehicle projects.
