INTRODUCTION
SAFETY PRECAUTIONS
Please read the Safety Precautions carefully prior to installing BatteryCheck.
Be sure to observe all precautions without fail.
CAUTION
Failure to observe these instructions properly
may result in property damage or personal
injury, which may be serious depending on
the circumstances.
Refer to the installation section before operating. Correct installation is
the most critical factor in ensuring safe use of BatteryCheck. If every
consideration of these instructions has been satisfied, BatteryCheck will
be safe to operate.
Ensure that cable connections have the correct polarity and are protected
against accidental short circuit.
Do not allow water or other liquids to enter the installation area.
ABOUT BATTERYCHECK
BatteryCheck is a simple retrofittable device with an internal shunt that
connects to a range of standard deep cycle batteries and communicates
wirelessly with smart phones. BatteryCheck provides real time battery
management data that allows users to effectively monitor remaining battery
energy via a simple to use app.
This device is suitable for recreational vehicle and marine deep cycle battery
use, up to 80 amps maximum charge or discharge. BatteryCheck is not
suitable to be used with engine cranking applications of any type and was not
designed for under vehicle bonnet use.
BatteryCheck is connected to a 12 or 24 volt (V) deep cycle lead acid battery
and monitors various parameters. The device uses a Bluetooth signal via an
app to allow access to these parameters.
02
Parameters monitored are:
›› Battery Voltage
›› Battery Charge/Discharge Current
›› Battery Temperature
›› Estimated State of Charge (SoC)
›› Estimated State of Health (SoH)
›› Estimated Discharge Time Remaining
ACCESSORIES
The following accessories are provided with BatteryCheck device:
›› 1 x brass battery post
›› 1 x brass battery post connector
›› Foam base supports
Please note: the connector, post and supports are not required for every
application – it simply depends on your battery type.
SECURITY
Each BatteryCheck is assigned a unique serial ID consisting of 11
alphanumeric characters.
A unique Bluetooth PIN is also supplied with your BatteryCheck and cannot
be changed. This PIN is located on the back of the device and is used to
access BatteryCheck app.
We recommend noting down your unique Bluetooth PIN in a safe place.
If for some reason you do lose this number, please send an email to
warranty@teambmpro.com for further details.
BATTERYCHECK APP
BatteryCheck app is compatible with Apple and Android™ mobile phones.

1 Negative Battery Terminal/Connection
2 New Negative Terminal Connection (connects to load)
3 ‘+’ Positive Flying Lead and Temperature Sensor
MOUNTING
BatteryCheck has a terminal at each end; using these two terminals the device
is wired in series with the negative terminal of the battery being monitored. A
separate lead provides connection to the positive terminal of the battery to
power the unit, measure the battery voltage and to assess the temperature
and overall health of the battery.
Please ensure that all loads connected to batteries are disconnected when
installing BatteryCheck to avoid battery sparks from occurring during this
process.

BATTERY CAPACITY SET-UP AND WIRING
This refers to the actual capacity of the battery in amp hours. When a new
battery is fitted, set this to the nominal battery capacity (as marked on the
battery); doing this will assist the software in determining actual capacity.
As BatteryCheck learns the battery capacity, it will automatically update this
parameter. Following initial installation, the battery capacity will appear as
50%. Over time, BatteryCheck will be able to read the battery state of charge
and health, and present an accurate indication of battery capacity.
Important: Please remember that in order to keep track of battery capacity,
BatteryCheck device must measure all current in and out of the battery.
This is achieved by connecting BatteryCheck between the battery negative
terminal and all negative connections. This means that all new connections
must be wired to the end of BatteryCheck that is not connected to the
terminal. Positive connections are simply wired as normal (e.g. to the positive
terminal of the battery).
