the international application in the language in which it was filed.
a translation of the international application into                                          which is the language of a translation furnished for the purposes of international search (Rules 12.3(a) and 23.1(b)).
This international search report has been established taking into account the rectification of an obvious mistake authorized by or notified to this Authority under Rule 91 (Rule 43.6bis(a)).
With regard to any nucleotide and/or amino acid sequence disclosed in the international application, the international search was carried out on the basis of a sequence listing:
2. Certain claims were found unsearchable
3. Unity of invention is lacking
4. Title of the invention
The text is approved as submitted by the applicant.

5. Abstract
The text is approved as submitted by the applicant.
The text has been established, according to Rule 38.2, by this Authority as it appears in Box No. IV. The applicant may, within one month from the date of mailing of this international search report, submit comments to this Authority.

An elevator system includes at least one lithium-ion battery, a temperature sensor (56, 57) operatively coupled to the at least one lithium-ion battery (44), and a lithium-ion battery charging system (50) including a controller (30) having a central processing unit (CPU) (36) interconnected functionally via a system bus to the at least one lithium-ion battery (44) and the temperature sensor (56, 57). The controller (30) further includes at least one memory (38) device thereupon stored a set of instructions which, when executed by the CPU, causes the lithium-ion battery charging system (50) to determine an expected run mode for the elevator system, sense a temperature of the lithium-ion battery (44) through the temperature sensor (56, 57) establishing a sensed temperature, and establish a state of charge (SOC) for the lithium-ion battery based on the sensed temperature and expected run mode of the elevator system.

6. Drawings
The figure of the drawings to be published with the abstract is Figure No.     1    
as suggested by the applicant.
as selected by this Authority, because the applicant failed to suggest a figure.
as selected by this Authority, because this figure better characterizes the invention.
