Do you find this to be a worthwhile option or would you prefer a different option.
I have not had any problems but have been thinking of a BMS lately since changing over to Lithium.
I have a Magnum Inv/Chgr and along with the Magnum ME-ARC remote. IMO, The ME-ARC remote is required not only for setting the multitude of parameters on the Magnum Inv/Chgr, but also allows you to turn the Charger and Inverter On and Off remotely rather than at the main unit. The ME-ARC remote does provide a number of battery monitoring readouts but for battery monitoring I rely primarily on Victron's BMV-712 Smart Battery Monitor. It's best feature is its Bluetooth capability to send battery info to your Smart Phone. See pic below of my iPhone screen. I can monitor my battery status from in my house.
