The motorcycle battery charging system has multiple components. It is not easy to explain the whole process of troubleshooting in a single video. Hence, I have only summarized how the system works. I have successfully fixed this issue on our Yamaha R1 and BMW 650F. Please write to me regarding your issues and I will help you. Please excuse the camera angle (my face) 🙂
In this video we introduce our new Blue Smart IP65 Charger, with built in Bluetooth. This enables you to see the information from your charger on your smartphone, using the VictronConnect app.

Welcome to this video showing our new Blue Smart IP65 Charger.
The Blue Smart IP65 Charger range are professional battery chargers that are perfect for workshops, caravans, RVs, boats, cars and motorcycles. The one we have here is the 12 Volt 10 Amp version.
There are clamps and eyelet connectors included with the Blue Smart Charger. The Blue Smart Charger has many features, such as:
– Built-in Bluetooth, I will show this to you in a minute
– Recovery of fully discharged ‘dead’ batteries
– Power supply function
– Ultra high efficiency
– Reverse polarity protected
– Li-ion battery mode
– Battery life enhancing features
What is so special about the Blue Smart Charger is that it has Bluetooth built in. This enables you to see the information from your charger on your smartphone, using the VictronConnect app.
I will show you how to connect the Blue Smart Charger to you smartphone.
1: Download VictronConnect
The Blue Smart IP65 Charger works together with the VictronConnect app, which is available for both Android and iOS devices. We will use an iPhone in this video.
Go to the App store and search for ‘VictronConnect’. Click on download.
2: Turn on Bluetooth on your smartphone
Then go to settings on the iPhone, click on Bluetooth and then switch it on.
3. Connect the charger to the battery.
Connect first the red clamp to the plus pole of the battery, then the black clamp to the minus pole of the battery.
4. Insert the plug into the wall socket.
The TEST LED will indicate that the mains cable is connected to the wall socket. All charge status LEDs will flash in case of reverse polarity connection, short-circuit or if a 12V charger is connected to a 24V battery.
5: VictronConnect app
Open the VictronConnect app. You will now see a screen with the title “Discovery”. Pull down the screen to scan for devices.
The Blue Smart charger will appear in the Discovery screen.
6: Fill in the pin code
Click on the connected device. You will see “connecting” on the screen. Then the message “bluetooth-pairing request” appears and you need to fill in a pin code. The default pin code is 6 times zero. (000000).
7: View Blue Smart Charger information
You are now able to change settings of your Blue Smart Charger on your smartphone. The startup screen looks like this:
If you click on the Mode button on your smartphone, you can choose the mode of the charger.
When you have changed something in the VictronConnect app, you will immediately see the same changes on your Blue Smart Charger. It works vice versa too so if you change the mode by pressing the mode button on your Blue Smart Charger, the screen in the VictronConnect app will apply the same settings.
Now let’s check-out the different modes of the charger.
Normal: this is the standard charging mode, most of the time this mode will be used to charge your battery. This mode is recommended for regular batteries, such as car batteries.
Normal + Recondition: when you use a battery intensively, this mode can be used once in a while to give your battery a boost. This can extend the lifetime of your battery. It is not recommended to use this mode too often because that will decrease the lifetime of your battery. Please see chapter 2.8 in the manual for more information about the reconditioning mode.
High: This mode is specifically if you want to minimize the charge time or for certain batteries which are harder to charge such as calcium batteries.
High + Recondition: This is a combination of the High mode and the Recondition mode.
Li-ion: When charging a Lithium-ion battery, the Blue Smart Charger uses a specific charging algorithm for Lithium-ion batteries, to ensure optimum performance and safe charging.
In the VictronConnect app you can also change the charge current. With the 10A charger you can change the charge current from 10A, which is the normal current mode, to 3A, which is the low current mode, by pressing the button below ‘charge current’ in the app.
