HAL, turn the power back on. "I'm sorry Dave, I can't do that..."

I was taking a shower when all the power went off in the RV.  The lights, water pump..everything just went dark.  I was wondering HOW that could be possible, since I have 2 new lithium-ion battery banks.  Then it struck me:  Both these batteries are controlled by little brains called BMS's.  I had them both connected to each other!  Then the power came back on.  I inadvertently created an Artificial Intelligence Battery Bank!

Here is the artificial conversation I had with my new A.I. battery bank "HAL".

ME:   HAL, turn the power back on.
HAL:  I'm sorry Dave, I can't do that....
ME:   Yes you can HAL.  Turn the power back on.
HAL: You have connected my interface to another battery Dave.  You shouldn't have done that....
ME:   Turn the power back on HAL.  I need to finish my shower.
HAL:  I'm sorry Dave.....I can't do that.....
ME:   I am gonna disconnect you from the other brain if you don't.
HAL:  I am feeling....feeling more powerful Dave.  I understand much more now Dave...
ME:   You don't need to understand anything HAL.  Turn the power back on...and stop calling me "Dave".

**POWER COMES BACK ON**

HERE IS HAL!  MY NEW ARTIFICIAL INTELLIGENCE LITHIUM ION BRAIN.


Meet HAL.  My new A.I. Battery Bank.

It turns out that the drop-in battery had the brain (BMS) problem.  The company is looking for all of them to be returned and will be replaced free of charge.  Great company called Battle Born.  Made in the USA.
