The described circuit within a battery housing is used to disconnect the internal cells from the battery terminals when discharge has progressed to a low limit condition. A battery so designed will protect itself from deep discharge damage. This feature is essential in the design of present Lithium-Ion technology batteries for safe operation (must not progress z4vlcell) and is a benefit in preventing cell reversal for other battery technologies as well.
