  1. well, then....too bad for those who tried to escape the pricing policy in europe....
  2. does that info apply to the "domestic" line too (different logo, technically identical)....just wondering since they seem to enjoy a certain degree of popularity not only with european buyers as I take it from their comments on Ali.....
  3. GX16-3 – which cable which pin?

    I can't even speculate why the colour of the cables are blue and brown since I dont't know where the charger came from originally. I'm no EE and just cut off the plug and took a look where which cable was going. Here's a picture of the C13 and the letters to which the two cables where connected. The blue one went to "L" and the brown one to "N". I interpreted "L" as live and "N" as neutral and that led me to believe that the blue one must be connected to the GX16 No.1 pin and the brown one to No 3. But your statement got me thinking. You're probably right. I'll take a meter to identify the positive wire. Thank your for your support!
  4. GX16-3 – which cable which pin?

    Thanks a lot!
  5. I've got my hands on a free (fast-)charger (67.2V/5A) for my new KS16S. Only problem is the output (DC) plug is a C13 instead of a GX16-3. So I spent a coupIe cents on a GX16-3 (female) to replace the C13 with it. Next I cut off the useless C13 and got 2 cables (one colored blue and the other one brown). The blue one connected to the C13-pin labelled L, the brown one to the pin labelled N. Now I'm not sure about which cable connects to which pin of the GX16-3. My best guess is No 1 --> L (blue one), No 3 --> N (brown one). Would be great if someone could tell me if I'm right or about to fry my EUC? THX
  6. WHAT IN THE WORLD?!?!?!?

    It must be some sort of accessories....most of the text seem to be from the original tesla promotion...my guess, the seller just forgot to adept the text....first line of the product description clearly says "promotion ended early...." and in the picture it says "buy before October, big promotion".....so what's left must be accessories, certainly not the EUC in the picture
  7. Cheap Handle/Trolley Modification

    ...and ugly as hell - no offence, but now I'm even more happy that the nice chinese seller provided the original handle for free when I bought my v5f....
  8. That's why I'm not waiting any longer and buying one NOW. Who knows what kind of regulation in a couple of years will be in effect.....
  9. Where to buy InMotion V8 within the European Union?

    just stumbled upon a seller on ebay who offers V8 and Gotway MSuper v3 (allegedly brand new and 100% genuine inmotion technology)....bidding start's at € 20,-- (worldwide shipping € 100,--) http://www.ebay.de/itm/V8-One-Wheel-Self-Balancing-Personal-Unicycle-With-Smart-App-Control-/132066723935
  10. owners and experienced EUC enthusiasts

    I can't comment on the technics of the V5F(+) and if it's top-notch or not since it's my first and only EUC...so I can't compare. But I haven't had any sudden cut-outs, strange sounds or unexpected behaviour so far. It does what it's built for and it's a lot of fun riding the wheel Reading about the problems of other brands it makes me feel good to have chosen inmotion, that's for sure
  11. Inmotion v5 v8 pedal getting loose

    I had the same problem with my V5D a while ago....it's easy to solve....just tighten the screw shown in the picture enclosed.
  12. Treating EUC's the same as e-bikes would currently be impossible because the regulation for e-bikes (up to 25 km/h and 600 W) in Austria is the same as for conventional bikes. So EUC's would currently be treated as bikes and would have to have two independant brake systems, reflectors of a defined size and and much more. EUC's don't fit into the current regulation for bikes in Austria. And I hope and pray that any regulative measure whatsoever won't mean to completely ban EUC's from public space - because quite frankly I don't like riding my wheel in the living room.
  13. Differences Inmotion V5D/V5F/V5F+

    As far as I know the V5F is the name for export (foreign market) and the V5D for the chinese (domestic) market. Technically they are supposed to be identical (but I can't say for sure since I haven't opend and compared the two). As for the app - I own a V5D and the (android) inmotion app works (english Version)
  14. Beginner's Review of the V5F+

    Same here....I took a chance myself on the Inmotion V5F (not the + model) when I decided to buy an EUC two months ago - and I haven't regretted my decision so far. Before I bought I came across this forum and read as much as I could about the Inmotions, Kingsongs, Gotways and other EUC's. The more I read the more I came across reports from riders of KingsSongs and Gotways about pretty strange behaviour of their wheels (including injuries from falling off the wheel because of sudden power-cut-off) and I was somewhat surprised that I found almost none from Inmotion riders. That made me think and I spent some time comparing the specs of the different wheels. Admittedly, speed and range of the KingSongs and Gotways are apparently top notch but the almost 25 km/h top speed of the inmotion v5f and a range of about 15-20 km per charge are enough for my needs. With my inmotion V5F I also got the foldable handle which comes in very handy. I just wanted a hassle-free, reliable and somewhat good looking wheel. All of my requirements (and more) where met by inmotion. I'm still glad I've gone with Inmotion and I use it almost daily, commuting to and from work. Living in a hilly area the inmotion hasn't let me down so far no matter how steep the incline. The more I ride the more I feel comfortable with the wheel. Would I buy it again? Now that I know how smooth the ride and how reliable the wheel is - sure Thing!

    Nein, ganz im Westen der Republik...das Gefährt meiner Wahl ist derzeit von Inmotion (V5F)
