A quick question, I like having cell voltage visualisation on my phone through the thingspeak widget, but it's a pain having to keep a windows machine running to push the data up to the cloud.

Is there a better way?

Since Batrium sends out all data via UDP on port 18542 there are many ways to send this data wherever you want.

@daromer has a Raspi solution with an UDP listener you can install and sent the data to influx and then graphicly display all that info with Grafana.
An ESP32 can also be configured to as a UDP listener and send this data to thingspeak. https://secondlifestorage.com/index...obile-udp-arduino-thingspeak.8198/#post-56312
Node-red has a udp listener also and can send this data to thingspeak with a thingspeak pallet.

Wow, cheers Wolf. I forgot that the watchmon broadcasts data over udp. That looks like an ideal solution.
