  • Patent number: 9515498
    Abstract: A temperature detection unit detects the temperature of a power plug. A control unit stops electric conduction to a battery when the detected temperature detected by the temperature detection unit is equal to or higher than a predetermined specified temperature (T1). The control unit recovers the electric conduction to the battery when the detected temperature detected by the temperature detection unit decreases to a specified temperature (T2) or lower, the specified temperature (T2) being lower than the specified temperature (T1).
