Acurate monitoring

Does the job really well. My brother was the one who discovered this and recommended this specific brand to me. He said it does not cost much but performs really great. He was right after all. Show details ·  1

Had an intermittent failure on one of the two I purchased

Contacted Oricom, had a replacement in 2 days. Found these very useful caravanning and camping. Can monitor car or van battery and determine when to connect solar panels to either car or van. Show reply

Does the Job

The App is very accurate with its monitoring. It's the only system I could find that does 4 batteries on the one app. Show details ·  1

Works as expected

I have a Samsung phone and found it difficult to make the app work.
My I pad on the other hand loaded the app and it worked straight away.
Great information from the device very happy. I can check the battery condition from inside my house. 2 devices for $95.00 Show details ·  1

Great Battery Monitor

Very easy to fit and a practical addition to my 4wd.
I thought one of my two batteries was failing and this proved it correct. Show details ·  1

Bluetooth range poor with under bonnet install, drains battery after a couple of weeks if vehicle not driven or charged

Bought 3 battery monitors for 3 large separate N70 batteries in my 4WD.
All batteries are independently isolated when ignition is off.
After 4WD was parked for 2weeks all batteries were Flat Show details

Started off great - stopped working after 2 weeks

The device was very Easy to install. The App was functional and reasonably accurate in real time. Device stopped working after two weeks though. Luckily I bought a two pack. Show details

Very useful, ultimate battery management

I use these to monitor both the main battery and auxiliary on my Toyota. It helps to maintain confidence that i can always start the car an run the fridge freezer without running out of electricity. I’ve been experimenting running a wind vane to charge overnight when necessary and the monitors have been a great help! Show details ·  1

Device is ok but the App is a let down

The device is well designed and BT connectivity is better than other battery monitors I have used.
The App however leaves much to be desired, it lacks the following,
- Ability to set battery type (SLI, AGM...etc)
- Battery selection (car battery, AUX battery etc)
My car has an AGM battery which sits at 13.01v when fully charged. The app marks it as "charging" since the voltage is over 13v. I never get the % charge level. Having different battery types with voltage profiles would resolve this issue.
I contacted support and was advised the Oricom BSM888X "wasn't designed for AGM batteries" even tough the website states "Compatible with all 12/24 volt batteries".
I hope the app is improved soon. Show details

Hi, Can a Battery Sense Monitor - BSM888 be used on a Li battery in a caravan that is charged via a solar panel or a 240-12V battery charger, without being damaged or damaging the caravan electrics?
