Yes, that can be done via BLE or ANT+. Once the external device is connected, the battery display or support level can be shown on the display.

The LEDs automatically adapt to the lighting conditions.
Can I connect my smartphone to maxon’s interface?
Yes, with the maxon Service app (for specialist dealers) or the maxon Connect app (for end customers), you can connect a smartphone to the system, configure settings, or get a data readout.
How can I see whether my smartphone is connected?

Is the Range Extender displayed when it is connected?
Yes, the Range Extender is displayed and the green LED on the interface is lit.
How is the battery capacity displayed when the Range Extender is connected to the system?

As soon as the Range Extender is connected and has been detected, the cumulative charge is displayed on the interface. To view the charging status of the Range Extender on its own, press the button on the Range Extender, then the LEDs will display the charging status of the Range Extender.
Are there level shifters that I could mount on the handlebars?
Yes, there is a solution with two small buttons, for racing bikes, as well as a solution with a small rocker switch, primarily for MTB handlebars. Both solutions are cable-connected and can be retrofitted at any time.
