Simple display for non tech savvy

A very simple app that ONLY displays a basic battery bar style graphic for non techincal people. No settings, just a simple display for those not wanting to shell out for the gx to get a simple display on their device/ phone.

Apologies, the product im asking about is bluesolar mppt 75/15 with bluetooth. My question is in regard to the connect app, it tells me all the data i need but.. is no good for the wife, do you have(or could you develop) a super simple version of connect (or page in connect) that has a simple battery meter or bar, so non tech savvy can look at it and understand whats going on..( like for example see at a glance that the battery is full/ half full etc) i apologize for not being clearer in the original question. ☺

Perhaps this gizmo? https://www.victronenergy.com/panel-systems-remote-monitoring/mppt-control

It doesn't show State Of Charge though. For that you'd need a BMV device, properly calibrated: https://www.victronenergy.com/blog/2019/08/27/battery-monitors-and-monitoring-solutions/

Depends how much you want to spend.. :)

You didn't tell us what device(s) you have already. Some of them have a BT radio and an app that's pretty easy to use, for example.
