You will not be able to remotely monitor from home as I believe Brad
is considering. For example how will you get into the yauth club
LAN remotely? What ip?

Yes. Once you plug
everything in and download the SCHULINK app you connect to WiFi
and the device creates its own local network. I hadn’t tried
that so I called Schumacher customer
service (800-621-5485). They assured me that the device will
work on a public network . . .you just need the password to
My only caveat is you can
only pass through the device a charge rate of 6A or less.
Plenty for battery maintenance but you can’t charge a dead
battery with 30A with this device in the system.
I use it with gel lead
acid or other equipment batteries, but as long as you are
charging at 6A or less, it should work fine.

Will the SchuLink work on a
public WiFi network? Something tells me no. That's
my only choice where my boat is kept.
Yes…this is a very
useful device. I have used an earlier version of
this for years.
Something else some folks may find
useful: the Schulink…a remote battery and
charging monitor. If You have a boat or a
seldom-used vehicle or, in my case, a solar
charged battery I use to power a WiFi repeater
as part of my security system, this is useful to
monitor battery condition. This device connects
between your charge source and battery, then to
WiFi. You can access it from anywhere to
determine the rate of charge and the percent of
charge of your battery.

Found this neat
little "gizmo" that allows you to see
just how much power your radio or
whatever device you have plugged into
it, is drawing from your battery, or
I've looked at
other websites and found these at
higher prices. However, Amazon has
them, minus the connectors, for $16.
instructions are minimal at best.
There are no power connections except
for the bare wires, so you have to put
your own on. I put 45A Anderson Power
Poles on each end.
Works like a
charm! It will allow me to keep track
of how much power I have left in my
battery when I am running POTA......
You can find it
