Your batteries are complicated. They are sensitive, overdrawn, under-appreciated, and probably pretty lonely most of the time. Treat your batteries with the respect they deserve! Talk nice to them, give them a pet every once in a while, or better yet, get them a monitor so you know exactly how they are feeling.
A battery monitor is critical in letting you know how things are going down there. They read you the charge, time remaining, temperature, and other cool things. You may be thinking you don’t need one because you have a fancy battery with a BMS (Battery Management System) however, though these are also awesome, they only monitor that battery and protect it from issues. A battery monitor, on the other hand, helps to keep an eye on the entire system so that your batteries and other components last as long as possible, an exceptionally significant part of your setup.
The Victron Smart Battery Monitor is our favourite because of its nerdiness level. It’ll keep those batteries from getting too lonely when you aren’t around, and put on a show when you are! Built to adapt to just about anything you can come up with, this monitor uses Bluetooth to communicate with other system components, enhancing performance and making installation a whole lot faster and easier on your end for future charges to come.

Makes Troubleshooting a Breeze - Ever worry about your batteries and systems? You should. All components of your setup will do better and last longer if you know what is going on with them though. This is the ticket to detecting electrical issues. It is always best to catch them before they sneak up on you.
