Lightbulb ODBII Scanner for Niro?

I am looking for an ODB Scanner that will let me pull all the ODBII data, and track the battery voltages. Anyone know of any that can do that?

You can find the interface connectors going really cheap on Amzon, and there's many free apps - I'd go with the BT version, ....that way the WiFi connection is still available on your device to access the web etc.

Quality and not quantity counts.

Thanks for the information Ron, and have I looked into most of those. But from my understanding, there are some issues when it comes to Hybrid vehicle, and especially when it comes to checking battery voltages.

Hello!

Thanks for contacting us! Unfortunately, this is not a standard OBDII live data PID and is not currently supported by BlueDriver. We will be working on ‘enhanced’ or manufacturer live data for your vehicle in the future, but there aren’t currently any firm timelines for when this will be complete.

If you have any other questions let me know!

Regards,

I have seen youtube that there is at least one OBD II scanner that can read individual battery pack levels on the Honda Prius. Is this an option for the Kia Niro?

Also Got this from BlueDriver

Hello!

Twenty minutes after your engine shuts off the device will go in to a low powered ‘sleep mode’ to prevent premature battery depletion. While in standby there is a small power draw (low 10s of mA), so we suggest removing your BlueDriver if you won’t be starting the engine for several weeks.

The only exception is if you have a new model Mazda SUV in which case the vehicle’s computer may fail to go to sleep with a scan tool plugged in.

If the Bluedriver is left in the vehicle what is the current draw while the vehicle is turned off?

I used an Ultraguage on my smart. Don't know how it would read on a hybrid.
