The Victron BMV-712 is more than a voltmeter. It is a coulomb counter: A device that measures the accumulated energy added to and removed from a battery, allowing accurate estimates of battery charge level.
I have mine on the ground side of my Battle Born batteries.

I've been reading some posts about lithium upgrades and using the Victron BMV-712. Hopefully, you can answer a newbie question I have. My current house battery setup is still stock from Georgetown, with all the positive running up to the battery control center and the negative side going directly to the ground. I want to install the Victron battery monitor, but question where the shunt would get located. It seems counterintuitive to put it on the negative side, between the battery and the ground, as the instructions say. It doesn't seem like it would recognize any of the load to the batteries or be able to give the SOC. Am I overthinking this??? Where is yours located in your setup?
