  1. King Song 14C 800W 680Wh - Broken

    Hi all, Purchased King song 14c (800w) from Wheelgo late 2015, without warning the axle cracked approximately 3 months later. Unfortunately Wheelgo no longer trade from the UK, Jason was kind enough to send me the complete service manual, but unfortunately his suggestion to 'hammer it back' was never going to work. Dispite a number of emails to http://www.szkingsong.com/ they do not appear to be able to reply. Cost £895 Broken axle 3 months later cost/ time = £298 a month. I am also lucky enough to own an ips and ninebot, had no issues with these units. Liam
  2. KingSong KS16 Video Review

    My review of the new KS16 from KingSong ... I will say it's everything that Ninebot should have done with model P ;-) - I think it's a winner... Review Summary Overall: I very pleased with the product (based on limited use).. I will say it's everything that Ninebot should have done with model P ;-) - I think it's a winner... Good stuff: It rides really well and offers a nice balance between power, comfort and stability.. Really nice design, very beautiful on the same level as Ninebot.. Material has a good feel and quality seems high.. Riding mode feels a lot stiffer than KS14c Very smart integration of the light (switching direction) Bluetooth seems a lot more intuitive than KS14c Integrated handlebar is a really great idea and it feels solid when it's not extracted.. Anti-slip on the pedal gives a really good contact to the food rest... Pedal height is good for tight turns Side protection cushions are placed perfectly and offers good support.. Rubber plastic cap for the charging port that is attached to the KS16 is really good... Bad/observations: Computer voice is really loud... It's nice at first, but this will annoy me in the long run. It can be switched off from the App More noisy than expected, high pitch noise is louder than KS14c and the cooling fan inside is notable.. What happens if the fan breaks? Missing a integrated park stand, it would be nice to have a way to park the unit upright and not have to lay it down. Fod pedal does not operate as smooth as I could wish, takes a lot of force to bring the down (minor thing)...
  3. Hello to all KS owners&lovers and not only I have one more week before separation with my lovely generic EUC. An eager nephew wants to buy it from me...he learned to ride it in less than an hour and naturally fall in love with it I'm following the path of many of you to start with a cheap generic one as a test and after that considering to buy the "real deal". This forum is a precious source of information for EUC connected issues and I was quite aware since the beginning which brand has the best for me technical features - KS. But I spent quite a time glued to the screen with the picture of Inmotion V5. Also at some point I considered buying IPS Zero...all in all I feel like I prefer that round shape as it looks more futuristic and far away from any kind of vehicle. But the passion from the outside look is one thing, my cold male logic mind is speaking something else. While I cannot afford to buy sport car, I can satisfy those entertainment (and not only) needs with the most powerful EUC - KS 800W. Thanks to @Jason McNeil I learned that KS are the most reseller/client responsive company who pay attention and take actions to improve their product. I think that such a company deserves honor and award in the form of more client's money Thanks to such honest distributors as Jason and @KaleOsaurusRex we are familiar with so many details about KS developments. Here I would like to express my special appreciations to @esaj His overall forum contribution is immense and knowing that this is for free I'm asking myself - how such guys could manage their time schedule working something else for a living and doing such a great work just for free. One answer that come across my mind is that such talented men are making enough for living only using one or two of their skills...the rest is for fun and self-actualization Many thanks to the forum contributors concerning KS reviews and issues - @John Eucist @Cloud @Henrik Olsen.....all. My EUC choice is KS 14C 800W, the bigger the better battery, preferably white color like the one that @Michael Vu shows us very well here: Now, after I finally decided the brand and the model, next stage is where to buy it from. For the "real deal" EUC I would definitely prefer to have a warranty and after sales customer support. For now, I'm considering the options to connect with the manufacturer in China (obviously after their holidays), or from Netherlands, France...I'm not sure and would appreciate advices and recommendations. All the best! added...just have seen all black version wich I also liked
  4. Dear all, My 12 month warranty struggle with supplier. Paid £825 ($1005) Inc Shipping. Unit: Kingsong 14C (800W|680Wh) Purchase Date: 6th August 2015 Perfect for 25 weeks. Ridden for 21 weeks (minus 2 weeks holiday + 2 weeks working away) Running cost / 21 weeks £39 per week. (approx $47) Previously owned: Ips - 1000+ miles no issues. Ninebot one - 1000+ miles no issues. Powerbrick failed - Emailed supplier October 2015. Email reply from Supplier (Company director) 'The first batch was pretty shoddy' 'Half of the chargers were defective out of the box' Unit fault- Emailed supplier 2nd Feb 2016. Scrapping from wheel, a large number of images sent to supplier showing foot pedal rubbing against wheel. Email reply from Supplier (Company director) 'is it a slightly bent axle causing the problem?' 'can it be hammer back into shape?' 'A bit of force should do the trick. You should be able to wedge it free by carefully using a chisel or flat head of the screwdriver.' Centre Axle Close up Unfortunately, mid Feb i was diagnosed with a seriously illness, in and out of hospital, doctors appointments... the Kingsong was the last thing on my mind. In June, after a number of emails from the supplier one of which i clearly remember asking him to take the unit back and rebuild it for me, it had been a long time since the unit had been dismantled, this request was ignored, the replacement wheel arrived 1 or 2 days later, after refusing to pay the shipping cost of £25. After another load of trips too and from hospital, doctors, nurses, etc. finally, I got around to fitting the 'new' motor, albeit some time later. Read and re-read the supplied manual several times The rebuild: Started out full of promise, rebuilt the unit in around 2 hours (took my time) Powered the unit up after fitting the very tight side panels, all the lights worked.The unit only works when it is moved 45 degrees to left or right. contacted supplier again, new board sent out - refitted same issue. Emails sent to king song 5x - Number of responses Zero Will post more images later for those of you who want to see in more details what $1005 buys you. To be continued.....

  8. KingSong KS16 Unboxing

    We got our KingSong KS16 today and made this video while unboxing and first ride... These are truly some wonderful devices... KingSong seems they have listen to previous complaints and improved key areas of the machine... I feel a lot stiffer than my current KS14c... We have not tried the full potential yet, as the unit is not unlocked yet, we are getting the unlock code from Tina soon so we can unleash this beast..
  9. King Song 14C (800W|680Wh|28km/h)

    10 days ago I purchased King Song 14C wheel at http://wheelgo.com in London. Here are my first impressions. The most important feature of this wheel, and the main reason of choosing this model is speed. It’s amazing 28km/h! Such speed is not even achievable on Rockwheels with their fancy reduction gears. The only wheel comparable to KS on the market today is Gotway, but they are quite unsafe. If you fall down from IPS at 14km/h you just make couple more steps forward. But if the same happens with Gotway at 28km/h you risk to injure yourself seriously and to damage your wheel. In compare to many other wheels King Songs are extremely reliable even when riding at high speed, riding uphill, riding over road bumps. I was not able to drop the wheel though I rode it at the maximum speed many times. Things I love in KS-14C: Unbeatable speed among 14 inches wheels!Impressive 60km run on one chargeTuning of neutral tilt of pedals using Android appFlashlight that turns on automatically at night. It is way more convenient than using your phone’s torch Automatic switching off when the wheel is dropped. Automatic switching on after recovery. Big comfortable handle. BT music Things that may be useful: USB chargerDifferent riding modes (aggressive mode/normal mode/soft mode) configurable from app.Real-time battery and engine metrics in app. Here are all downsides of my model I found during my first week of use: USB port lid is made of piece of rubber, I lost it during my first ride. At the moment of writing this review I couldn’t find an iOS application for managing the wheel. So I take two phones on my rides: one (iOS) for calls, other (Android) for the wheel.It's not possible to configure volume and speed limits for beeping sound. First I worried about it but now I’ve changed my mind. Beeping sound not only helps your stay alert and ride safer but also warns people who don't expect to see a you in advance. It’s possible to physically unplug speakers from the mainboard for those who prefer silence.I expected that it will be possible to use pedal as a stand, but it isn’t. As a conclusion imho KS-14C wheel is one of the most advanced wheels on the market today and I’m excited to own one of them! Few words about the shop. Jason (http://forum.electricunicycle.org/profile/191-jason-mcneil/) was the single point of contact for me. He was very responsive from the beginning. First we met in the city center for a test drive, he was courageous enough to let me try to ride his own wheel:) I bought a wheel next day after the test drive. After the first charge my power adapter died. When I complained about it to Jason he arranged our meeting the same day. We figured out that the problem was with power adapter and soon he delivered me a new adapter module. So despite of high quality of King Song wheels it still makes sense to have local warranty to be able to resolve such problems quickly. Feel free to ask me any questions! Replacement for broken adapter Wheel switched on Blablabla 60-80km indicates 680Wh battery
  10. I noticed some of you talking about taking your unicycles off-road. Those wheels might be too small but these babies shouldn't be a problem. The concept is the same but the manufacturer added some features that might make this the next best thing. Increased power, more mileage and more speed. And just like their small counterparts, no licence required. Prices are a bit steeper but they are worth it. If you guys want to check them out, especially the full specs, you can go on the website: http://www.ezee-ryders.com (keep in mind prices are Canadian). Otherwise, they are already for sale on ebay: http://www.ebay.com/usr/ezee-ryders Let me know your opinions and if you have any questions, email us at ezee.ryders@gmail.com
  11. So I just finished day four of my first ever EUC riding. I thought it might be helpful for new beginners to see what my experience was like. This has been quite a journey! So first, about the hardware: king song ewheel.com exclusive 800w 840wh 14" model with all the new features, thanks to Jason Mcneil! I received it in one business day on December 31st. It shipped from Florida and I live in Phoenix. In the box is the standard stuff, but no wrist guards. Also, this new model with 840wh battery does NOT have the USB charging port even though the manual says that it does. I can't seem to get the Bluetooth speakers to work, so I wonder if this feature was left off of this model as well. I can connect to the app but not play any music. I'm using an iPhone 6S Plus. Also, if you've never owned one of these before (which I haven't- this is my first one), this unit is heavy! I'm not actually sure exactly how heavy but definitely 30 pounds. I would recommend that a beginner start with a lighter unit. The weight, coupled with my inability to ride or balance it, made for a very steep learning curve. Aesthetically it doesn't compare to something like the IPS zero or ninebot, but man is it solid and feels like high quality. In four short days I have managed to mangle the holy heck out of it, but I've already made peace with that. So on to my learning experience. Let me start off by saying that I'm 28 and about 160lbs, 6' tall with no experience and relatively out of shape. This machine was HARD to learn! Both my friend and I were so discouraged after two days of practice that I almost gave up, which wasn't really an option when you consider how expensive this unit was. Let's go by days: Day 1- mostly riding around inside with my hands on either side of a hallway. Couldn't go two feet without crashing and leaving black tire marks all over the carpet. I would suggest not riding inside especially on carpet. Played around for about 3 hours total this day and never went outside. Day 2- tried to go outside for the first time with the help of my friend. I held onto his arm and tried to learn my balance. Any time I let go of his hand I would immediately crash. Did this for about 2.5 hours with little success. Day 3- this day I decided to try on my own and was mounting using my hand on my garage door as support. Felt comfortable going forwards and backwards while keeping my hand on the wall. My driveway is small though so after I would let go I would have a very small area in which to ride before I hit a wall, car, or bush. Made very little progress so I tried going out into the street. Was able to ride maybe 10' before falling. I had a safety belt on this entire time as well, so it was physically exhausting falling so many times and having to essentially lift the unit so that it didn't go spinning out of control. I had to give up due to exhaustion. Note that the pedals hit my legs in multiple places and I have many nasty bruises from this day. Day 4- this was today and boy let me tell you did it feel good. I decided to go to a park with my friends and my dad. The park had huge flat grass fields which was ideal for me to learn on for a few reasons: 1, I didn't have to wear the safety strap which was a huge plus. 2, when I crashed I could simply walk off and not worry about too much damage to the unit, and 3, when I crashed it hurt a lot less. Today I was able to learn to ride and successfully mounted on my own and rode for 600' without falling off. It felt so good! I finally found some semblance of balance and not having obstacles in my way was the biggest help. I'm now trying to learn to turn which is hard but I'm getting the hang of it. So, I thought I would share some tips that helped me and might help you too. 1. Wear safety gear! I wore a helmet, wrist guards, knee pads, elbow pads, and then I took two full sized towels, folded them and wrapped them around my legs, taped them together at the seams, and put stretchy pajama pants on over this. Yes I looked ridiculous but I avoided all further injuries from the unit spinning and clipping my legs. Also, the towels are somewhat heavy so it doubled as strength training for your legs. I've found that I'm working out muscles I never knew I had and each day these muscles are becoming stronger, helping me to get better. But PLEASE wear wrist guards. I would have had some nasty scrapes if it wasn't for those. 2. Don't try to learn in small places. The house, hallways, driveways, and small crowded streets are all terrible places to learn. You can't get a sense of how to ride without being able to careen off in any direction for a long time. This was the biggest help in my learning. 3. Having a friend hold your hand is OK but it's better to practice mounting yourself, as this is the hardest part. I would mount and dismount dozens of times to try to get the feel for it. Along with this, if your foot isn't in the right position simply dismount and try again. Foot placement is key and when you're learning you won't be able to adjust your feet while riding. 4. When you fall, roll with the fall to minimize injury. 5. If you don't want a scratched unit, buy some cheap yoga mats and pad the heck out of it. Also, buy some sidewalk or skateboard grip tape to put on the pedals. most importantly don't give up!!! I truly didn't think I could learn this but after today I feel much more confident. Just keep at it, accept that you WILL crash, and be confident in your wheel. Confidence and relaxing is huge. I havent had a chance to take any video yet but hopefully I can soon. If you have any questions please feel free to ask!

  15. Range test of KingSong KS14c - 800W - 680wh... Does the battery last for 28km, with a heavy rider and 10C ambient...?
  16. Besides the additional 2kgs of the weight of the motor, there are some other differences between physical distinctions between the two Wheel. The 800W's control-board is black, while the 500W is blue500W motor had a serial number next the valve, 800W did not500W has less resistance to spin (cogging) than the 800W800W has a much louder whine when powered onThen of course there's the power difference between the two, this is really what it's all about, the 800W feels much more powerful
  17. EXCLUSIVE: 800W King Song

    Around two months ago I was visiting China on an unrelated business trip & was invited by lovely Tina Wong to visit the King Song factory in Shenzhen. A month earlier I was considering the option to distribute the King Song product range, since it seemed to offer many of the advantages of the Gotway eWheels, but with the added bonus of improved safety, front/rear LEDs & USB charging. The testing eWheel they sent me was a 680Wh 500W motor, with an electronically controlled top speed of 25kph. The raw power of the beast was mightily impressive, what's remarkable about these eWheels is that they seem to possess both high torque while also capable of high RPM (this is on the 500W model). There were some small niggling issues, such as what I believed to be an insufficient level of water proofing between the shell elements, USB cap, the quality of the app, packaging etc. I wrote to Tina about these & she was exceptional (among mfgs) about taking my feedback to enhance the product. Going back to that China business trip, during the end of the factory tour, I was told that they were developing a special edition 800W motor version with a higher top speed, with even better operating performance. From what I saw of their operation, I didn't need to be asked twice if I was interested in being their launch customer for this new model, so signed up immediately then & there. It's taken some time to get the development completed & the recent delays of the air-freight have not helped matters, but after nearly two anxious months of waiting, I am very pleased to report that the initial impressions are very favourable! A full review will follow over the next couple days... New box design with a 500W/800W designation. A unique model number will probably be issued to distinguish the different flavours.. Nice box box design with the Wheel prominently shown. Notice the Red accents on the side, I actually much prefer the all black, as shipped. Bundled with the training-strap, 2A 67.2A charger (more on this later) & an instruction manual. Wheel is wrapped in a nice, easy to access side protection, much better to get at than the trying to open, say the Ninebot One, without damage to the packaging. And there she is in all her glory. If you're worrying about the strength of the shell, please don't; there's another post about this, but basically it's indestructible.. Side view of the rear. There is a front/back setup, which effects both the pedal tilt angle & the LEDs are only headlight & red tail-light.
