thanks that was helpful! Looks like my two possible paths both range in slope, the route I'm using ranges from about 8 degrees to 25 degrees in slope, the other from about 3 degrees to 25 degrees in slope. So either way, I'm definitely pushing the ninebot to the extreme... sigh. I guess I may need to drive down the hill for now while I investigate another wheel.
I will be the the owner of a new Inmotion V8 next friday (YES!!). First I got a Ninebot Mini Pro, and it didn't take long to notice the one wheel community since then. So exited, hope the learning curve isn't to steep...
But OK to get to the topic. I'm desperately searching for a protective sleeve, I see them on most of the Youtube videos I have seen. I don't think they come default with my order and searching for one of them but none of the shops seem to sell them. I live in europe, so my question does any of you know a webshop that delivers to NL and got the sleeve in store?
Thanks for the help, and really digging this forum, lots of cool information and funny stuff to read!
I'll be in San Jose next week for work, this thread seems to be quiet, is there any unicycle activity there ? I'd like to be able to rent one to discover the city a little
Thanks for any information you could provide.
The hill where my ACM failed was extremely steep, and it was a trail - not easy to ride and therefore I was going slow. If you are going up a paved road I can't imagine you having problems. You'll be traveling faster which consumes less power. Use Google Earth to determine the slope of your commute route. I doubt that it's 25+ %, but who knows.
It shows ni voltage value?
then you could try some third party app like wheellog/gyrometrics or the other one i can't remember the name. They all support inmotion v8?
or you order an charge doctor and can monitor the charge process and get numbers for the battery capacity.
That's about one of the worst things to happen to liion cells. (Besides letting them fully discharge)
according to http://batteryuniversity.com/learn/article/how_to_prolong_lithium_based_batteries liion cells stored for 3 month at 60 degree celcius just have 60% of their capacity left! Hopefully it was not as hot in the garage - at least not at night time...
The bms of the e+ has a reverse voltage protection diode at the charge side - so there is no (valid) voltage to be measured at the charge port.
But one can monitor the charging process with the chargedoctor or something similar.
maybe some optical inspection of the batteries would be a good idea after this treatment?
the strange behaviuor of the charge state displays (led, app) could be a sign of bad cells.
Unfortionately there are quite some reports/discussions that the ninebot e+ Bms does not really balance the cells ;( but a try should not hurt - maybe it works...
Should be the safest way - or opening the pack and taking a closer look at the cells before?
anyhow - this pack should be treated with special care - beside no supervised charging also charging only in some safe envirome could be recommendable.
This was an absolutely fantastic overview of the two helmets that I keep coming back to. Unfortunately there are elements that I like on each helmet. I will be particularly interested in the follow-up that you will be doing. We'll be able to call your follow-up a review I think I feel like I'm going to get one of these helmets. Too bad there isn't a good place to put my Gotway logo
Thanks again for the effort that you put into this write-up. I very much appreciate it.
Yeah hindsight... this was an impulse buy on Amazon Prime day!
I think what you re saying (besides the obvious that I could loose a few ) is that a more powerful wheel won't have the same problems as this one. That makes sense to me I just wanted to be sure after watching @Marty Backe fall off his Gotway going up a hill. Maybe that one was steeper? I want to make sure what I'm trying to do - commute from my house on a hill to work and back - is possible on ANY wheel before I go invest in a new wheel.
I'm hooked on this form of transport, it's fun, and for a fat slightly overweight beer lover, it's actually a bit of exercise, I'm hoping that I can find a way to make this work!
