Balancell BMS Update 3.2.3 & 3.2.4

One of the next-generation IoT* features of the BALANCELL Battery Management System (BMS) is the ability of Balancell’s engineers and scientists to push OTA** background updates to Users battery's onboard BMS firmware.

We have just successfully released the update for BALANCELL BMS versions 3.2.3 & 3.2.4.

Much the same as updating the software version on your laptop, (only no user action is required) – BALANCELL BMS firmware updates are installed automatically whenever the battery is connected via Wifi or the onboard GSM/2G SIM modem. The vast majority of BALANCELL batteries are always connected, providing minute-by-minute performance history updates accessible on the Client/User's Balancell Battery Dashboard portal account.
