Everything is wired correctly, I repeatedly followed the instructions. As soon as I get out of the settings mode, after entering the capacity, it shows that I am at 50%(suspiciously the factory setting) of capacity. If I set it, and then leave it plugged into shore power, will my percentage then increase or stay the same?
I’ll dig out that Amazon link.
I’ve been spared. When I plugged in my ME-BMK, it said Think’n...until it witnessed a full charge and aligned itself.
If you watch a full charge cycle occur, and SOC is inverted...ie goes down as the voltage is going up during charge...it may be miswired. I’m sure that not the case. If it’s powered...that part is right...if the reading goes the right direction with charge and discharge, you haven’t put the battery on the load side and vice versa...so, even if you had miswired..it’s self critiquing. If it never goes to 100%...I suspect a bad component. They are very sensitive electronic devices and subject to failure.
I have had mine misbehave...the red power line that I had to install for it had a fuse. I removed the fuse, waited a couple of minutes, and replaced it. Think of CTL-ALT-DEL on a Windows Computer. It rebooted the computer inside...and all was well.
That’s all that’s coming to mind...
