The Intelligent Battery System

Columbia Overland provides the technologically advanced Intelligent Battery System (IBS). This unit uses next generation technology with micro power RISC Micro Computers (MTC). This new technology is now being integrated in the IBS products offering a variety of great features and improvements.

During normal driving, the IBS links both batteries using a 500-amp-capable/12-volt relay. When the engine is off, the system isolates the batteries. This allows the auxiliary battery to power accessories for in-car entertainment (ICE), marine applications, AC power inverters and law-enforcement/emergency emergency-responder equipment without draining the main (starting) battery.

A manual override button links the batteries for high-draw situations such as winching when the engine stalls, running high-load inverters or operating on-board air compressors for prolonged duty cycles. The batteries are automatically separated after 30 minutes to prevent accidental discharge.

The Intelligent Battery System is designed to be durable and reliable, using the most current technology available. It was developed by a Swiss engineer who experienced dead batteries while traversing Australia's Great Victorian Desert in his Series 60 Land Cruiser. -The IBS won a Global Media Award as one of the best new products at the 2009 SEMA show.



Battery Tray Kit includes:

  • The base of the tray is 1/8" 5052 aluminum designed with rigidity in mind, once installed it's much stronger than the factory tray
  • The battery top is constructed of 1/4" 5052 aluminum to keep the batteries in place. Installation of the tray is simple.
  • Requires no modification to your Discovery and utilizes the stock mounting holes. Simply remove the factory plastic battery tray and install the new tray in it's place.

Most batteries will fit this tray as it's designed around a pair of Odyssey Group 34 batteries, typically the largest dry cell battery manufactured. Optima Group 34 will fit as well as shown in the pictures.

You should avoid using the Group 34/78 batteries as they have available side post and the tops are slightly different due to this. They will work however, and you will likely need to put a spacer under the top plate.

Battery Tray Kit does not include Dual Battery Wiring Kit.
