If you own an actual Segway branded "Segway" then your posts will get a much wider audience at http://forums.segwaychat.org/ instead. "Equivalents" (clones) related discussion can be posted here since it's not allowed over there. You may post about actual Segways here too if you insist for whatever reason.
I believe I had an over power event this week. I have the voice disabled so there was no audible warning. I stopped at a traffic light in front of a speed bump so pulling away was also up hill. The wheel folded instantly. According to the graph in WheelLog the wheel peaked just above 40A. I would say the power is irrelevant as it's going to be minding that 40A fuse regardless of the voltage.
Hint: If you plan to buy the charge doctor v2 for quick charge - make sure the seller confirm your order for the 2-input version! I ordered those version without any confirmation and got the single-input item :/
@Jean Dublin: Hello Dublin! I've once visited your beautiful city of Dublin. I remember I somewhat unexpectedly got sunburned! We also traveled along the north-western coast. It was so hot that we could go swimming in the ocean. And on Tory island we shook hands with the King of Tory (as every visitor respectfully have to do).
I am now mostly taking the longest way home after work - 11 km. Ca. 30 min.
Place the switch before the voltage converter, otherwise the converter will suck power at all times, even when there's no actual load connected to it (so-called quiescent current).
I have one similar (36...72V to 12V) converter too which has same looking connector, but don't know what's it called. Just cut it off, the black-wire (which should be ground, but do check first ) will be shared between the input-voltage and output voltage (common ground). You can split it into something like XT60 for input voltage, and some other connector for the output, just connect the negative-sides ("minus") of both connectors to the black wire.
Do note that the BT-amplifier seems to output 15 + 15W (15W per channel, stereo), so you could go with lower power speakers too (although, AFAIK, it shouldn't matter much even if the speaker maximum wattage is above the output power? But I don't know for sure...), or maybe using both channels to drive a single speaker. Find yourself an "audiophile", those guys know what to do
For me to learn riding the big thing that made it all just click, was riding in a narrow long corridor. Narrow enough to be able to always reach both sides and keep your balance with help from the walls.
I tried some other tips from the forum for a few days like riding next to a wall outside and riding circles around a big clothes hanger outside, but that just didn't do it for me. Mostly cause I couldn't keep balance for more than 3-5 meters. So my tip would be to go straight to a narrow corridor to learn balance first, helped loads for me! Having things to grab on just one side of you or having a strap (tried both) just hinders your learning process because you ride bent and unnatural. Also you don't need a strap to not scratch your EUC if you learn to dismount one foot early on, think big triangle when you dismount one leg and you're fine. Arms out on both sides, no straps and walls on both sides was what did it for me!
That appeals to me - even if it had to be a special order.
My IPS will do 30kph,which is plenty for me, so turning that extra Msuper power into torque instead would be great. Particularly where I live, as even our "smoothest" paths are pretty crap - so having to be less concerned with unexpected terrain changes would be ideal.
I use a Samsonite Vizair - which I think adds some (mainly corner) protection. But then my "valuables" are work owned, so I'm less particular.
I was after a smaller backpack, and that died the bill.
But I do like the look of that Ogio No Drag Mach 3 too.
@Shoe73 Thank you for being the first to submit a video! Your children are awesome on their EUCs!! The video has all of the elements we are looking for: riding skills, tricks and most important pure entertainment to watch! Congratulate your children for me! You taught them well! 🎖
