  1. Roominipro, who the hell are you? You are no damn solar expert, yourself, fucking over fucking thinking the whole mess! The panels are set up for lower sun angles, don't care about noon sun since, a little from both panels, I can only use 70 watts any given time directly charging mini... Besides on the move will be getting lots of tree shodows. This is not just for mini, but as well to transport with bike... Besides once stopped, it can be angled flat to sun BOTH PANELS! Could have used one 50 watt panel, so get over yourself...
  2. I don't know why they redid the app, it is ok, but I don't like the redid distance logging, especially the daily! It worked perfectly before now I never have daily readings and I don't think it's adding it to total distance!!!! Plus new you have to go to profile and hit the tiny +1 in the corner to get what was automatically added when you connected to machine! So I have to give it ??
  3. The only good with this design was the built-in 'trolley' stick', and the ability to quickly take arm off, we didn't need the extension at all! Personally, I need the foam padding moved forward....I will fix that sooner or later...
  4. Damn, how many cells are they packing? Is it more accessible? Not that we need to hack the bigger pack... You had lower center of weight on the pro, now the battery pack is above the wheel, more top heavy will make the remote control work better, plus it looks like there is more clearance underneath now... I want to know how you supposed to pick it up, to go up and down stairs? I have to pick it by the neck now it's more stable that way if you pick it up by the foam padding, the foam going is to break down! It already has on mine...the plus has no neck!
  5. How is your local authority reacting?

    For most part have had not much problems but there is always a new guy in the neighborhood that has to pull me over, ok I ride in the street when ever I can...this week a fat ass sheriff...seen him in parkinglot where they were doing emergency exercise... 1am in morning ain't no cars around I go street.... anyways he finally tells me to stay off street only sidewalks.... 90% of our sidewalks are a mess, more hazardous then the streets!
  6. Here is set up.... 1) solar input 12 v panels (more like 20v) 2) go-to charging input to external battery, or I can go to mini charging port - pro 60 v, Asian mini 64 v limited (hopefully) 1.5 - 2 a 3) output to power meter 4) going to charging port. I have a switch with a 40 ohm resistor across it to stop sparking...still don't know how to limit current for under 2 a, but the bms should handle that anyways... I could have went directly to internal battery if I had ran wires from it... The meter can be placed in 1 or 2 also...
  7. OK been awhile, first a solution to internal blown fuse... And I should had run wire to parallel the internal battery while I had it open. The only good spot to run it out is where the fuse now sits.... And now I need help for a hitch, the strap is not cutting it, good for back up, but definitely need a hitch... Seriously, a 50 watt (or two) would have done the trick...
  8. Another Vancouver electric rider busted

    First of all, fuck Canada, nice place to visit, don't want to live in snowsville...in fifty years when the world gets too warm, might have to move there....maybe they will change their ways by then... ?wtf? No cross fingers emoji!
  9. How about drilling a hole through one of the wheels or the base and threading a cable through... should not hurt a thing....???
  10. I guess the best thing to do with these bigger wheels to to only go half speed the wheel is capable at! Come on, look at it, cars go 160-250 km/h, but that doesn't mean we drive them at top speed 100% of time....we drive them at a third of what they can do... So too, with e-unicycles! Ok so I got a mini Segway, to top it off the whole time I'm on it, the whole 15 km/h.... But I highly suspect that Ninebot is throttling down the top speed of the mini anyways...
  11. Well now we got the 'e-unicycle' for surboards... adding foils to regular surfboards is the new fad going on.... Gives new dimension to old sport, and they don't mind the 'crappy' waves anymore because the foil can ride on smaller 'less satisfactory' waves. Whole new challenge and mounting and handling boards, and of course you can add a motor, too.... With regular board you can 'walk' the board, but with the foil, you only have one fix place to stand and you need to be one with the foil post at all times...
  12. That's odd never read more than 2.2 a, but heard sparking like if your charger was live before plugging into mini...
  13. Found blown fuse...F3 and a kinked thick + battery wire... Don't know amperage to use assuming 3 amp... Would like to know what the white and yellow wires from plug are doing.... Oh my charger female plug on my Asain mini popped out on my this morning! Now how that happened? Now I am going to have to open that battery, too! Could be loose nut in pack!
  14. KS18 - 1200W - 40km/h, a quick and dirty review

    You could always add a thicker cushion to the 'hard' seat...it is just a hollow plastic seat, no?
  15. Stand on Top Trick

    When I first saw people riding eus and did all the tricks in videos, I thought only Chinese acrobats rode the damn things...
