Victron Energy BMV-712 Smart Battery Monitor

When we upgraded to Lithium batteries in October 2020, we also installed this elegant battery monitoring system.

Using Bluetooth technology, it talks to one of our iPhones and allows us to easily monitor how the lithium batteries are doing.



  • The Victron Energy BMV-712 is a high precision smart battery monitor; the essential function of the monitor is to calculate ampere hours consumed and the state of charge of a battery
  • Built-in Bluetooth Communication – Monitor your batteries on Apple or Android smartphones, tablets, macbooks, and other devices
  • Next to the basic display options, such as voltage, current, and ampere-hours consumed, the BMV-700 series also displays state of charge, time to go, and power consumption in watts
  • Easy to Program – A quick install menu and a detailed setup menu with scrolling texts assist the user when going through the various settings.
  • One bad cell/battery can destroy a large (expensive) battery bank. When batteries are connected in series, the monitor can generate a timely warning by measuring midpoint voltage
