Continuously Active Battery Modulation
CABM is the plug-and-play Battery Modulation technology inside LAVA's u Series adapters, which is designed to improve the longevity of the mobile device by protecting it from overcharging and battery bloating
Have you noticed a decline in your device's battery life?
Overcharging of Lithium Ion batteries for short or medium amounts of time can lead to lower battery capacity, but long periods of overcharging (as seen in permanent or semi-permanent installations) can lead to catastrophic battery bloating and device damage.
CABM is a form of Battery Modulation that protects your mobile device from overcharging and battery bloating
Built into LAVA’s u Series adapters and the Charge-Check, the hardware-driven technology is designed to turn off charging before the mobile device reaches a full charge, protecting the battery’s lifespan. Increased longevity means a better ROI, while SimulCharge ensures the mobile device continues to do what you need it to do.
How It Works
CABM is a plug-and-play battery modulation technology that requires no additional software or hardware to operate. It monitors the mobile device while it is charging
CABM detects that the speed of the charge has slowed to a trickle, it disconnects power, as it indicates the mobile device is near a full charge
* Usually between 92%-98% charge
It allows the mobile device’s battery to discharge. During this time, the USB and/or Ethernet ports remain connected.
After a preset number of hours have passed, the adapter initiates the next charging cycle.
*On most CABM-equipped adapters, the length of the discharge time can be configured by the user.
CABM vs. RBM
CABM is distinct from Network Recovery & Battery Modulation (RBM), which is found in
LAVA’s e Series SimulCharge™ adapters
While both offer battery protection, CABM is a plug-and-play technology, meaning it requires no extra software to run. RBM must be configured through an accompanying LAVA Tablet Manager (LTM) Android app, making it slightly more involved to set up but more robust. RBM also features a Network Recovery feature that can rescue a dropped wired Ethernet connection.
