Lester Summit II Series Battery Chargers Bluetooth Wireless Apps for Apple and Android Phones
Lester Electrical Summit Series® II Battery Charger Wireless Apps feature Bluetooth wireless communication which is accessible using an Apple® or Android™ smart phone or tablet. Download the ChargerConnect app for your device by scanning the QR code on the charger or visiting the App Store® or the Google Play™ store. Search for \”ChargerConnect\”.
The Summit Series II charger communication electronics are DC-powered, so you must connect the charger to a valid battery pack in order to communicate with it via Bluetooth. After connecting, open the ChargerConnect app and select the charger from the list on the “Connect” screen. The charger serial number is the identifier of the unit unless the “Charger ID” already set up via the app. After you connect, the Red, Yellow, and Green LEDs on the charger will slowly blink simultaneously until you disconnect. If the unit was actively charging before the Bluetooth connection was made, it will continue to charge unless you stop it via the app.
The Navigation Menu is accessible 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 (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. Modify the charger ID on the “Dashboard” and “System Profile” screens.
Vehicle ID – Displays the ID of the charger-paired vehicle (if applicable). The Vehicle ID is factory-set to be blank. Modify the charger ID on the “Dashboard” and “System Profile” screens.
Battery Profile – Displays the profile number of the active battery profile. Find a description of this profile, including the compatible batteries, 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, can be found in the charger user’s manual.
Charge Status – Displays the active charge cycle phase.
Charge Time Remaining – Displays the approximate 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 approximate 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 is active (not gray). The Equalize and Balance phases of battery profiles will typically trigger based on a variety of events (ie a certain number of charge cycles occurring). This button provides a method to manually trigger an Equalize or Balance to occur if your battery manufacturer, distributor, or dealer instructs you to do so. It will be gray if the active charge cycle already has an Equalize or Balance phase on.
