The Summit Series II charger communication electronics are DC powered, so the charger must be connected to a valid battery pack in order to communicate with it via Bluetooth. If the charger is connected to a valid battery pack, open the ChargerConnect app and select the charger from the list of available units that the app is able to communicate with on the “Connect” screen. The charger serial number is the identifier of the unit, unless the “Charger ID” has been previously set via the app. While connected, the Red, Yellow, and Green LEDs on the charger will slowly blink at the same time until the Bluetooth communication is disconnected from the charger. If the unit was actively charging before the Bluetooth connection was made, it will continue to charge while connected unless stopped via the app.
The Navigation Menu can be accessed by tapping the three (3) horizontal lines in the upper left-hand corner of the app. Disconnect – This menu item disconnects the Bluetooth connection between the charger and your smart phone or tablet (device) and returns you to the “Connect” screen.
Note: If the connected charger is actively charging, the “History”, “System Profile”, and “Battery Profile” menu items will be disabled. The “Manual Stop/Start Button” on the “Dashboard” screen can be used to (1) stop the active charge cycle in order to access these menu items and (2) start a new charge cycle prior to disconnecting from the charger.
Charger ID – Displays the ID of the charger. This field is factory set to be blank. The Charger ID can be set/modified on the “Dashboard” and “System Profile” screens.
Vehicle ID – Displays the ID of the vehicle that is paired with the charger (if applicable). The Vehicle ID is factory set to be blank. The Vehicle ID can be set/modified on the “Dashboard” and “System Profile” screens.
Battery Profile – Displays the profile number of the active battery profile. A description of this profile, including the compatible batteries, is available on the “Battery Profile” screen.
LED Display – Displays the same charge status LEDs that are present on the charger. Details regarding the LEDs can be found in the charger user’s manual.
AC Present – Indicates AC input power is present at the charger by illuminating the field’s blue LED, which corresponds to the blue “AC Present” LED on the charger.
Fault – Displays any active faults. Descriptions of the faults, as well as instructions for resolving them, are detailed in the charger user’s manual.
Charge Status – Displays the active charge cycle phase.
Charge Time Remaining – Displays the estimated charge time remaining in minutes.
Output Current – Displays the DC output current in amps.
Amp-Hours Charged – Displays the number of amp-hours charged.
Battery Voltage – Displays the battery pack voltage in volts.
NOTE: Depending on the screen size of the smart phone or tablet (device) you are using, you may need to scroll down to see all of the fields
Battery State of Charge – Displays the estimated State of Charge (SOC) of the battery pack as a percentage and graphically.
Auto Battery Voltage Detection (if enabled) – When Auto Voltage Mode is active, this field displays the status of the proprietary algorithm that executes at the beginning of the charge cycle as a percentage (see the “Auto Voltage Mode” section for details regarding Auto Voltage Mode).
Detected Battery Pack Voltage (if enabled) – When Auto Voltage Mode is active, this field displays the detected battery pack voltage by the proprietary algorithm that executes at the beginning of the charge cycle (see the “Auto Voltage Mode” section for details regarding Auto Voltage Mode).
Manual Stop/Start Button – Tapping this button will stop a charge cycle (red button) or start a charge cycle (green button).
Manual Equalize/Balance Button – If the active battery profile includes an Equalize or Balance phase, this button will be active, otherwise it will be grayed out. The Equalize and Balance phases of battery profiles are typically triggered based on a variety of events (a certain number of charge cycles occurring, etc). This button provides a method to manually trigger an Equalize or Balance to occur if instructed to do so by your battery manufacturer, distributor, or dealer. This button will also be grayed out if the active charge cycle already has an Equalize or Balance phase triggered.
