Supposedly, you can scan the code on the battery to download an App that will let you communicate with the battery to see its status or even disable/lock it so that if someone steals your battery they won't be able to use it. Seems like a lot of useless mumbo jumbo to me, and I've never tried to use it on mine. What is useful is that it also works as a USB charging port.

I've got 3 of these elite batteries (2-6Ah & 1-3Ah) ... I knew about the USB port but have never used; but did not know (or remember) the bluetooth feature.

seller had masking tape with item number on bottom of batt. Window for USB was under it. Didn't interfere with use, I probably would never have removed it if not for this thread!
