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.
I purchased this battery pack based on the suggestion from BBMC and ordered online after they confirmed my existing hardwired kit is compatible. The battery pack is slimmer than B124 and lighter. It can power my 2 channel dash cam in parking mode without any problems even under a hot day .
I’m using a DR900x 2-ch and I was having issues with parking mode. It would only stay on for a hour or 5 minutes so I needed an alternative solution. This battery works amazing and now I can park my car with peace of mind. Sadly, there’s time I don’t drive for a few days so the 16 hours I get out of it isn’t enough so definitely am getting an extended battery. I am also satisfied with the wires (add-a-fuse) it comes with it made my order easy and I didn’t need to go all over the website to see what I needed.
Build quality is very good. The App does a great job reading the battery information and it is connecting very fast. It is very easy to install. I'm very pleased.
