I just purchased one of these
to run ZillaView http://www.evgear.com.au/zillaview.html and it works great.
If you have a Zilla controller, it makes for a great $80 meter that shows lots
of interesting real time information in a very readable format.
You can also download a copy of Putty http://www.putty.org/ or use another
serial communication program to access the Zillas native interface.
There are a couple of quirks that are worth mentioning. There is only a
single micro usb port, which also acts as the charging port. This is not an
issue in my case as the "up to 6 hours of battery life" is plenty for my needs.
You will need an USB to serial adapter which I already have
https://www.monoprice.com/product?p_id=3726. Also, I am not able to get
ZillaView to recognize input from the Windows 10 onscreen keyboard, but again I
already have a bluetooth keyboard
so that was not an issue for me.
Overall I think this is a great device. It is nice to be able to try different
speeds in different gears and compare motor amps/volts to battery amps/volts,
and also see the RPM of my motor. I already have an Evision meter in my truck
which shows me all the battery side information, but when I compare the ~$700 I
paid for that, this solution seems like even more of a bargain.
