To my knowledge, there is no firmware version requirement to use the different JBDtools.

Over 1.1, 1.A has several improvements:

- ability to put the chip in sleep mode, for long-term storage of the battery
- more life counters
- config password protection
- ability to change/reset bluetooth PIN
- it "should" be multilanguage :mrgreen:

The official 1.A interface is a mix of taiwanese chinese and chinglish.. plus fonts and metrics of window objects are garbage.

As I don't have access to original code, I modded program resources and Hex-edited it.

Thanks alestoroz for the translation. Much appreciated.
Is the firmware upgradeable? Do we have newer versions available to flash? Never thought of it yet, but if it got some improvments i'm always willing to try.

if peeps want the vbms apk:

https://drive.google.com/open?id=0B57Vy ... VtWXg1cUhr

this version should be able to give the thing a password to prevent people from changing your bms settings. handy for reselling batteries.

this the the most usable version but you cant install a password but it is in english, sorta:

mind you: you cant install them at the same time due to having idential names.

Thank you for your work on this! The Chinese apps can be so much better, but they won't put in the effort.

Puuh, it is a long time for me posting in the main forum 😅☝️
I just succeeded to tune one of them. Went from 14s30A to 15S 60A.
For those getting a shock like me. When you remove the 13-14s bridge and rewire everything, the 15S cell shows in the soft 26V... trust me, I unplugged it a few times 😅🙈
So you just need to recalibrate the cell, and all goes as intended.
For the 30-->60A I just repopulated the second side with some gets from a toasted one. And it works :)
Hope this helps!

H.

Seems there is a "new" English version of the bluetooth app (I was just contacted by the vendor).

P.S. I haven't tried it as I only have IOS not Android. YMMV

Are you 100% sure? They claim it is the English version. (I have no way of testing)

Are there any benefits over the Xiaoxiang V2.1.1022 version? Your posted app didn't want to connect to my bms, but the interface was not as convenient as the Xiaoxiang.

Your series voltage is not very uniform. Mine is with in 0.03V and I get 93 for Voltage uniformity.
Check yours in Battery state/ Battery Voltage.

Hi Goonman, may I know which bluetooth BMS you are using with the VBMS app?
I also want to buy it. But when I checked with the developer on which BMS it can work with, they sent me a link to an aliexpress post. Mine is not that model but from the same manufacturer. When I further asked them if it will work with mine, I got no reply.

You guys are lucky, I never got my 300A Bms working with the $10 Vbms app, although it has always worked with the original V1 app - Strange, How did you get yours to connect?, I've tried everything I can think of with mine.

I have tried Chinese “smart” BMS, and there is always a catch. I ended up with the Energus, and am now the Canadian distributor.

https://hilleater.ca/bms/energus-bms/

They do everything you need, the manual is in pretty good English. The 150/750 a version will drive a relay for higher power projects. No phone app yet, just pc but they are working on it.
i used a bunch of them in the past. but the price and 16S limit is a real bummer. also the pricing for shit you need like the balance wires is a separate buy. and i asked for longer wires a long time ago and its basically talking to a brick wall...

that said, i do use them for high end solutions if the customer wants to spend the extra money or i run into size constraints.

too bad they simply cant beat a chinese 32S 300A bms with a LCD screen in cost or features.

Hello!
Friends, tell me, please, have you encountered the problem of reading and changing data in the BMS from a computer? In my PC version of the software, the first tab with cells info works fine, but if I try to do a calibration on the third tab or read the data on the second tab, I get a connection error, and the data is no longer read from BMS. To restore the connection with the BMS, i need to restart the PC application.
I really need to calibrate the bms because it show wrong data on the current measurement (displayed x 1.5 = real)

I think it's because you click start in the first page for live voltage update. Instead you need to just click read eprom in the second page.
