If you are planning on changing the battery password, you will need to enter the default password '1234' when prompted for the old password.
Note: There is no password retrieval or reset function. Password reset is a function that can only be performed by technicians at the manufacturer. The Reset function within the Battery Manager App is for resetting the default battery settings (ie. the Dual Charger setting) only and will not reset the password back to the default "1234".
Because of this, we strongly recommend that you don't change the password unless you absolutely needed to, and if you do change it, make sure to keep a record of the new password. Once you have changed the password, you will be asked to re-enter it every time you access the Settings menu within the Battery Manager App.
Pretty impressed with the smaller footprint vs other battery backups. However; not sure it delivers the sustainable hours backup as stated on your site. The most the app tells me is 13 hrs on a full charge using my 900X Plus 2 Ch. w/rear camera. At this time that's a bit lack luster performance. I tried calling customer support and after a fairly long hold time I opted to be called back. The call back never happened. So my 2 questions went on the back burner not being addressed. 1st question was am I doing something wrong that the Powercell only powers for 13 hrs and 2nd question - what setting Hi/Low do I use when charging with the power inverter?
I thought the lack of response from support was not indicative of the company's montra - so I sit here scratching my head as to what to do next? Otherwise all integrated items are working well with each other.
Zaid was very helpful and made my mind to purchased the product.
This battery pack is awesome! I didn't want to hardwire my dash camera to my car's battery but wanted parking mode capabilities so this is a great alternative. A genuine set-it-and-forget-it item that recharges when I drive and continues to power my dash cameras when I'm away. The power durations listed by BBMC are pretty spot on. No issues or regrets since purchasing this battery pack.
