The SmartShunt is an all in one battery monitor, only without a display. Your phone acts as the display. The SmartShunt connects via Bluetooth to the VictronConnect App on your phone (or tablet) and you can conveniently read out all monitored battery parameters, like a state of charge, time to go, historical information, and much more.

Alternatively, the SmartShunt can be connected and be read by a GX device. Connection to the SmartShunt is made via a VE. Direct cable.

The SmartShunt is a good alternative for a BMV battery monitor, especially for systems where battery monitoring is needed but less wiring and clutter is wanted.
The SmartShunt is equipped with Bluetooth, a VE. Direct port and a connection that can be used for: monitoring a second battery, midpoint monitoring, or a temperature sensor.

Victron Smart Shunt 500A/50mV

Good product, very slow delivery

The product took 5 days to be shipped, I ended up receiving it 9days after I placed the order including two weekends. It was still within their commitment of shipping within 2-5 days though. But still, that is really slow delivery in this day and age. I buy a lot online, and I have to say that this is the slowest delivery service I have experienced.
The product is good though and very well priced too.

Victron Smart Shunt

I bought this towards the end of 2021 and was lukewarm on the product as there was no trending available of the important variables (voltage, current, SOC% etc). However Victron do issue firmware updates and I was pleasantly surprised a year later to see long term trending (over a month) - see screen shot below. I can now easily track how my batteries have performed over the short term. For example during load shedding I can see the DOD% of my batteries during the 2 and 4 hour blackouts.There is a bug with one trace though - the consumed Ah doesnt work and hopefully will get fixed in a future update. The above price of R2109 is actually ~R80 cheaper than what I purchased it for. 5 star product for sure.

Happy with the purchase

Although on the upper end of the price range (as all Victron kit is) I am still satisfied with the unit. I have learned that one forgets the price you paid, but a inadequate item will always remind you of it's failures or deficiencies.

* It has the ability to monitor both batteries (in series, 24V) as it gives the midpoint deviation.
* Good documentation / manuals.
* Many online forums where one can hunt for info.
* Installation was quick, including the Victron Connect App.
* Everything you need is included, including fused cables.
* I like the way the cables connect - push in. I have had too many devices where the screw terminals are fiddly. This unit: Instant connect without tools.

Cons: Bluetooth signal not very strong. Fails to connect in the adjacent room - about 6m away (signal passing via brick wall). May be old BT standard, so probably within spec.

Overall impression: Good. I dipped my toes into the Victron pool to see if I should consider going the Victron route for my inverter installation - and it did not disappoint. However from my research Victron does not have single 3phase inverter unit. This add complexity and cost for my particular solution - but Victron is still in the running.

Unit installed - not yet sure of its performance, but guess it will do it's job!
