Many simulators who try to simulate realistic pre-flight procedures before they start the engines have had an exasperating experience of rapidly draining aircraft batteries. This makes it difficult to listen to the ATIS, set up the radios, or perform other tasks that require electricity. When the battery is drained, you cannot start the aircraft. Since there is no way to ‘charge’ the battery, you have to shut down the simulation and start all over again.
When you install BAT-X, you can run the electrical equipment in the aircraft before you start the engine. This means you do not have to go through your pre-flight procedures in haste.
Once you are in the air, BAT-X enhances in-flight simulation realism even if your engine fails. In the event of an engine failure, you can still use the electrical gauges, radios and lights on battery power for a little while. BAT-X makes it easy to train in emergency situations that includes engine failure at night. BAT-X also enhances the levels of realism in situations that involve generator or alternator failure.
