Running out of power halfway through a ride is a nightmare, so being able to see how much battery power you have remaining is vital when preventing yourself from the inevitable...
By wiring in one of these simple LED Battery Capacity Indicators, you can switch between cell count display or % setting. Through the VESC you can set a power cut off level, preventing over discharging your batteries and potentially damaging them.
These aren’t ‘plug-and-play’ - you’ll need to set the LCD to your battery type in order to get accurate readings...
To set LCD screen to your battery type -
-Power off the board & press the ‘function’ button at the back of the LCD.
-Keep the button pressed & power up the board with the loop keys.
-The LCD will change, keep pressing it until you see the cell count you're using.
-When you're at your cell count, unplug the power again & plug back in without pressing the button, and you're all set!
