1. An apparatus for monitoring the state of charge of a battery comprising:

  • a shunt resistor to be placed in series with said battery and having a voltage drop related to the current to or from said battery;

    and an electrical long term analog integrator connected across said shunt resistor for integrating said voltage drop;

    said integrator comprising an operational amplifier, an input resistor connected in series to a first input of said operational amplifier, and a MEMORIODE connected in series between said first input and the output of said operational amplifier;

    said MEMORIODE being operatively connected for non-volatile storage of said monitored state of charge without requiring connection of said apparatus, said integrator, or said MEMORIODE to said battery or other source of power.
