  1. V8 charger fuse blown?

    Fixed it! I opened it up and unplugged and replugged the main wires back in and beep beep! Good call Steve454....although you had me freaked out when I smelled warm plastic upon opening it and I was certain it was melting down. Thanks to everyone else's great suggestions, as well. Probably took me 20 minutes to pop the case off and unscrew the battery and replug the two main wires. Wheeling!!!! I LOVE WHEELING!!!!!! BEEP BEEP. On Your Left. Well, i tried to figure out how to add On the Road Again by Willie Nelson but no luck and I'm tired. Someone help me out?
  2. V8 charger fuse blown?

    This is possible. Checking connections tonight
  3. V8 charger fuse blown?

    I had leaned it against the wall with it still on, and LEDs still on. I do that quite often so it stays upright. I ended up leaving it for a couple hours and when I checked back it didn't even cross my mind that the wheel was black (or turned off). So i'm not sure if it jsut rocked back and forth running it out of battery or what.
  4. V8 charger fuse blown?

    Nope it was in my dark (very dark. I have a backlit mirror that provides the only light) entryway with no windows. Temp in my place was 70 - 75 F.
  5. V8 charger fuse blown?

    I rode my wheel this morning, parked it. Then upon returning a while later to ride it was totally unresponsive when I tried to turn it on. No lights, nothing. I plugged it in and the charger did not have the little wind up sound it usually does. So I'm assuming that the fuse in the charger blew? Any other thoughts? Tim
  6. I have found that Slime is for smaller punctures like thorns and such, whereas Stan's is for larger particles. I have had great success with Stan's....not so much with Slime. Here's the link. Product is $5. https://www.amazon.com/Bottles-Stans-Sealant-Bottle-Tubeless/dp/B01GN5YTIE/ref=sr_1_2?s=sporting-goods&ie=UTF8&qid=1494940140&sr=1-2&keywords=stan's+tubeless+sealant
  7. I just got my old X8 out of the closet for a friend to ride and charged it using my Charge Doctor (has ports for both Airwheel and InMotion V8). When I tried turning the X8 on, the lights turn on and beep then die out as if the battery is drained. I've tried it several times now and it is always the same result. Did the Charge Doctor fry my wheel somehow or could sitting in a closet for 5-6 months have been a factor? What do I do to get it fixed? x8 2.wmv
  8. Inmotion v8

    Yeah, Original purchaser only. The first line of their warranty: 1. Warranty Inventist Inc. warrants to the original consumer purchaser of the Solowheel (“Purchaser”) that the product will be free from defects in materials and manufacture on the date of purchase and will remain serviceable for a period of one year after the date of Purchaser’s purchase, subject to the exclusions in the following paragraph.
  9. Inmotion v8

    Well, I just had to pay $300 to have Solowheel replace the motherboard on mine because I wasn't the primary buyer.....Stevenvo, if you can confirm this I would love it if you'd send me documentation.
  10. How long has your EUC lasted?

    My Airwheel X8 lasted me two years before I upgraded to InMotion's V8. I still use it as a back up wheel. It definitely has several thousand miles on it..easily.
  11. I love my V8, really do, but...

    I've been riding the V8 for over a month now and am totally in love with it. It is the smoothest, most balanced and responsive, incredibly stable riding wheel I have been on. I own 4 other wheels, and generally when my tire pressure is lower I experience wobbles and slight delays in motion...when it's 45/50 PSI + it's squirely and over responsive. I would say to the original issue posted that it is probably a tire pressure thing or rider not in sync with his wheel, yet.
  12. Received my Inmotion V8 from ewheels

    I have the fast charger from Jason.
  13. Received my Inmotion V8 from ewheels

    The instructions that come with the V8 charger are wrong. They say to plug your wheel in first, then attach it to the wall. Doing it that way makes the battery indicator appear to charge but it doesn't. You have to plug it into the wall first and then your wheel. The charging unit will actually make quite a loud noise like it's taking off when charging. I didn't ride my V8 for 3 days when I first got it because I couldn't figure out the charging situation. Enjoy your V8! I do mine!
  14. New V8 doesn't charge

    Yeah, so Jason McNeil helped with the error in the directions. Plug it in to the wall first and it will work. Thanks Jason!
  15. New V8 doesn't charge

    For whatever reason I only received the one charger from Jason when it was shipped...and actually the first charger had the wrong port on it, so the one I have is now the 2nd one that they sent separately. So, this is my 2nd issue with this wheel. The charger has two lights, red and green, The green one never changes to red when plugged in.
