What is a Battery Monitor?
Checking the health of your battery systems is made easy with the Ultimate9 Bluetooth Battery Monitor (BBM) and Ultimate9 BM app.
Designed to monitor the voltage and charge status of your batteries, engaging with your smart device via Bluetooth, this multifunctional unit is easy to install and simple to use. The BBM collects data from your vehicle’s battery that is not otherwise visible on your dashboard.
So whether you’re on the move or settled in for the night, put your mind at ease knowing the health status of your vehicle’s battery.
Why Do I Need One?
Reduce the risk of a dead battery and all the hassles that come with it, the BBM system communicates seamlessly with the BM app via bluetooth. Perfect for long trips, traveling off-the-grid or checking battery status on lesser used vehicles in storage, you can ensure a healthy battery with the Ultimate9 Bluetooth Battery Monitor.
The Ultimate9 BM app allows you to set two alarms, alerting you to low voltage situations and the need to recharge. Providing cranking and charge system tests, this accessory is a cost effective, preventative solution to issues that may arise from a lack of battery monitoring.

What is OBD2?
On-Board Diagnostics (OBD2) is a standardised system that allows external electronics to interface with a car’s computer system. It was introduced in 1996 as a means of regulating emissions and as a solution to the mass adoption of electronic fuel injection by automakers. Electronic fuel injection requires computer control as it regulates fuel flow by interpreting electronic signals from various engine related components, rather than just mechanical throttle actuation.
Diagnostics are the primary purpose of the OBD2 system. Upon detecting something amiss, a vehicle’s sensors will trigger a message or ‘trouble code’ which, if detected three consecutive times on vehicle start up, will trigger the ‘Check Engine Light’ on the dash. OBD2 scanners check these trouble codes and determine where these/any problems lie. Once a problem is resolved, the OBD2’s memory can be cleared, and the ‘Check Engine Light’ will no longer be on.
