Battery Status Information at a Glance

Would you like to know how much charge you really have in your battery?
Even more importantly, how much energy you have stored that you can really USE!

It's a fact that many people are not aware that a simple voltage reading on a voltage meter or gauge,
can not give any real or accurate indication as to what usable energy you have stored in a battery.  

For instance, how many people know this....
 For 
all intense purposes, a battery meter reading of 12V on a disconnected battery means that it is all but flat (empty of useful energy)!! 

Or how about under some load or charging conditions, a reading of 12.5V can mean that the battery is fully charged, or it could mean that it's flat!!

Sadly it's also very true that most batteries don't just die, they get murdered!

This is where easy to read super smart and intelligent Battery Monitors come into their own.

What we really need to know is the batteries State Of Charge (SOC)
along with some other very helpful information.

The eLITE Battery monitor has 4 screens that you can easily access, 
and you can leave it idle on any one of these screens, 
but 
each and every screen shows an easy to read fuel gauge showing SOC.

 So every-time you walk past you can see at just a glance,
how your batteries are holding up and their true SOC,
so you will never be left in the dark 
(was that a pun?) 
or with warm beer, 
now how good is that!! 

I love these super smart battery monitors so much!
 I call them EBM's (Enerdrive Battery Monitors) 

I believe that in the modern Motorhome, Caravan, 4x4, Boat or Camping situation, our power demands have increased a lot from the old days past, and folks whole enjoyment of their RV experience now more than ever revolves around powered devices, so a failure in this area due to low power, can just destroy a holiday completely.

So in my opinion to be kept fully informed as to the battery situation at all times is paramount for all RVers .


I know that having good easy to read and understand battery monitoring, 

pre-empts and prevents most power problems. 

These are such a valuable tool, and

I have been pointing out the advantages of proper battery monitoring for well over 10 years now.
 I believe that anyone with an 
auxiliary, dual or 'house' battery should have one of these battery monitors.

It is for this reason that I have secured the best deal for my customers, and I can offer these EBM's at a great price, and with my exclusive bonus connection kit (the 

standard boxed monitor does not come with a connection kit).

It's funny you know, when I bought my first proper battery monitor, it cost just over $600, that was 11 years ago!!
I still have it in full use today (different brand and model but has all the same useful information),
 and I bought it from the same guy that I buy the EBM's from today :-)

I do warn my customers that once you have owned one of these meters,
you will be

totally spoiled 

for life
as you will not feel comfortable using or operating anything with an auxiliary battery, without having a battery monitor, so be warned!!
But it sure does give you a smug and knowing feeling when you do have one :-)

The EBM Battery Monitor uses sophisticated microprocessor technology to provide complete battery status information for your battery.

A simple display shows volts, amps, amp hours consumed, percentage of charge.

These monitors come with full and comprehensive installation instructions, 
and to help with the first time set-up I offer extra help sheets.
 I include all wiring required for connecting this monitor up, these extras include......

5M x Cat 5e communication cable

in-line fuse holder and fuse

Monitor PCB (printed circuit board) 

incorporating 

cable adaptor


Shunt PCB incorporating cable adaptor

1 x heavy battery to shunt link tab (a Fridge & Solar innovation)

This monitor can even be mounted externally, with the face outside to the weather, 
I've done this on my own camping trailer.

These monitors are made in the Netherlands by TBS for Enerdrive Australia, 
and yes these are identical to the very popular Xantrex Battery Monitor (XBM's) I've been selling for years.  

Suits all 12 & 24 volt systems.

eLITE Features

Battery monitor that give you a smart, precise status of your batteries at a glance.

Defining the amount of energy available in a battery is a complex task since battery age, discharge current and temperature all influence the actual battery capacity. High performance measuring circuits, along with complex software algorithms, are used to exactly determine the remaining battery capacity. The eLITE selectively displays voltage, charge and discharge current, consumed amphours, remaining battery capacity. Using a clear backlit LCD Display and an intuitive user interface, all parameters can be recalled with just a button press. A second battery input is also provided to monitor voltage on a second battery. The eLITE is equipped with an internal programmable alarm relay, to start a generator when needed or to turn off devices when the battery voltage exceeds programmable boundaries.

Performance Features

  • Read your battery bank like a fuel gauge

  • Provides critical information about the status of your battery bank

  • Displays voltage, current, consumed amphours and remaining battery capacity

  • Two battery inputs

  • Auto sensing battery voltage inputs

  • Large backlit LCD Display

  • Quick nut mounting construction

  • Programmable alarm relay

  • Shunt selection capability enables flexible system integration

  • Splash proof front panel

  • 500 Amp shunt included E and e-mark certified
