This item seems a bit over-priced for its purpose. Now, if I could only get the 20 Amp MPPT Rover Charge Controller to accept it in the RS232 port without turning itself on and off, that would be great. Having said that, I feel the problem exists with the Charge Controller and not the Bluetooth Module. I rate the BT-1 4 out of 5 stars.
The module works well except the battery temperature on the app does not agree with the battery temperature on the controller. The app temperature never varies from 25C, while the temperature on the controller follows the ambient temperature and higher when the battery is charging, which is normal.
Makes checking the solar controller so easy
Installation was a breeze, plug and play. Hooked right up to the phone app Renogy BT. Good information available on the app to ensure that the system is functioning as intended. Have not yet tested the connectivity beyond 20 feet but the documentation provided quotes 82 feet. The connection cord supplied allowed me to mount the BT-1 inside the trailer away from the controller and therefore will easily hook up to the phone app anywhere in the trailer or my tow vehicle.
