It features continuous battery voltage and current monitoring, trimmed charge and discharge voltage limits, and short-circuit protection.

The module also features temperature-dependent charge/discharge current limit detection and uses nickel tabs to enable quick and direct connection to cells by spot or ultrasonic welding.

The Panther module is priced at <$2 each in volume quantities.
