Battery Monitoring

Being able to monitor your batteries correctly can help extend the life of your batteries. Lead Acid batteries can be monitored by a simple volt meter but lithium batteries are a little bit different and really require a shunt to monitor.

The Smart Battery Shunt

The Victron SmartShunt is an all in one battery monitor, only without a display. Your phone acts as the display. The Victron SmartShunt connects via Bluetooth to the VictronConnect app on your phone (or tablet) and you can conveniently read out all monitored battery parameters, like state of charge, time to go, historical information and much more.

Alternatively the Victron SmartShunt can be connected and be read by a GX device. Connection to the Victron SmartShunt is made via a VE.Direct cable.

The Victron SmartShunt is a good alternative for a BMV battery monitor, especially for systems where battery monitoring is needed but less wiring and clutter is wanted.
The Vicrton SmartShunt is equipped with Bluetooth, a VE.Direct port and a connection that can be used for: monitoring a second battery, midpoint monitoring or a temperature sensor.
