It means it has detected that one of the cells on the pack is below the Low Voltage Restore threshold, which if I remember right is around 3.2.

I have also had this happen because of bad connections on the balance leads/balance board that cause the charger to sense the voltages incorrectly.

What does that mean? Amperage went down greatly and power supply and generator still had plenty of capacity

Thoughts?
Check your balance lead - probably have a loose pin in one of your connectors. Switch to CellV tab and you should be able to see which cell isnt reading correctly, assuming it is still in that condition. Note that it will stay in LVR mode even if it starts detecting a normal cell voltage later.

I just searched for revolectrix on my iphone 5 and it came up.
What device are you searching from ? ... maybe it's an older unsupported device ??

Having some odd behavior with the app. For some reason it's taking over an hour (and still going!) to upload the battery logs?

Is it supposed to take this long?

Started at 8:27pm, and it's still running at 9:43pm, with some 231 kb later and for some reason that number is growing.

edit: 3+ hours later it's still uploading, and now 589 kb
edit: 4+ hours later, now 732 kb, still 0 of 32 logs? Going to bed, maybe it will be done in the morning.

edit: Woke up this morning, and something must have timed out, because when I unlocked the phone, the app tried to reconnect through bluetooth to the Bump and start this whole proceedure of transfer all over again. So it seems that no further battery info can be sent to my phone. ??

I've been running the app for a week now. For the price I'm kinda "meh". Hopefully it's still in development, as it doesn't do much. On my phone it's practically useless, as the phone needs to stay on, and in the app. Screen goes dark: app loses connection. Switch apps: app loses connection. My primary use for the app is to keep tabs on the battery status and hear the alarm when it goes off. No, I'm not leaving the room. But it would be nice to sit down and read Helifreak or something while the packs charge instead of hovering over the charger. As it is the phone is now a dedicated charger app. Can't use it for anything else. Hopefully improvements in that area are in the works...user configurable notifications would be a welcome addition. Staying connected when using their apps is kinda expected. My vbar app doesn't disconnect when I switch apps or turn off the phone's screen.

Aside from that the only bug I've run in to is with my powerlab8 dual. After one channel completes you can hit "clear" on the app. It stops the audible alarm and clears the pack info back to the bump a tag screen on the bump controller. BUT it wipes out the preset info on the other channel. Up at the top where it usually says "normal" or "storage" or whatever charge profile was in progress is now just blank. And in the setup tab where it used to say the name of the pack, is now just blank. It doesn't do that if I hit the clear button on the bump controller directly.

I'll be keeping an eye out for updates.

Thanks for reporting the bug - will add to bug list.
Lots of new features on the roadmap, so yes, this is just the basic starting features. Also testing ability to keep Bluetooth open and active in background. Apple iOS likes to kill things immediately to conserve battery, so its a little tricky.
