Flown there, crashed that.

I'm working towards a complete solution that integrates with inventory control and other aspects surrounding the batteries and maintenance scheduling. Basically, I need a system with four charge ports that can maintain say 12 - 16 large capacity batteries and keep track of all of their health and cycle history. Also want to collate the battery information automatically into the aircraft flight logs and info. Really don't want to have to manually move the information around.

I don't need fine control over the charging parameters, just basic parameters and start/stop, as well as all the discharge/charge curve data and which battery is connected.

We've had Bump feature requests for many of the same features, so it may align pretty well moving forward.

For example, supporting APIs for allowing other 3rd-party applications to access battery history data in a *live* manner - directly from the app or a cloud storage source, not import/export/copy of history files. This would allow flight controllers that are capable of reading the BumpTag cycle# (like Jeti integration) to be able to automatically record the battery and cycle# just prior to that flight.

Another item on our todo list is a "simplified" Bump/app UI options - the idea is to remove most of the detailed/complex data and present a much less imposing UI for "operator" folks who only know how to charge a pack, not analyze it in any way, so no need to show all of that detail - somebody else will look at those details in the Battery History to keep track of battery health.

What you're proposing is a large undertaking .... are you wanting to build this specifically to support your business, or looking to create a new product like this that you offer to others ?

If you want to share, feel free to PM me with more information and I'll comment further about relevant ideas we're kicking around for the future.
