  1. Hi all, I have a general question - should I change my Q5 to X3? I'm not english speaker, but I hope I will explain my issue well enough. Current situation: I have an Airwheel Q5. I'm satisfied with it, drives great, no issues with the device. My weight is 100kg (220lbs). I have a luck to work currently near the place I live (about 1,5km) and found an airwheel a nice fun way to get to work and back. The problem which I have is the way how sidewalks in my neigbourhood are builded. They are all with an angle to the street, and the angle is not quite small in my opinion. It is of course to let the water goes immediately from sidewalk to the street (I don't know however why it is that steep). Because Q5 has two wheels, it naturally goes to one side when I use it on sidewalk. In result I don't feel pretty comfortable and fully stable when I feel pressure on one leg and I have to adjust position to stand upright. My understanding is that X3 might solve this issue. Analogy I find in the bike - when you drive straight a road which is leaning from right to left, you will feel it if you're driving car (naturally left wheels are lower than right wheels), but if you drive a motorcycle or a bike, obviously it's not an issue. So - my understanding is that X3 will solve my problem. Can someone share his/her thoughts about it? Maybe someone faced such issue or is using a road/sidewalk/way which is leaning (not sure if it's a right word, but I hope you know what i mean)? The second question is important as well - I live also uphill - Q5 has no issue at all with climbing up (I would say angle is never more than 10), but X3 has 350W engine, comparing to 800W in Q5. Would that be a problem for X3 (I'm 100kg/220lbs)? X8 is not an option as it's just too expensive. Unfortunately there is no option to just try X3 - that would answer all my questions actually. Thanks a lot for all your answers and thoughts! Cheers, Majki
  2. Greetings EU people My name is Jim from Greece, I would like to share my experience. Couple of months ago I bought an X3 clone with a "132 Wh" sticker on it, but a 88Wh battery on the instruction manual. I thought I should learn to ride on a cheap thing and smash it without really caring about it before upgrading to a better model. Anyway, with one hour of practice a day just after work I managed to ride it with some confidence within a week ( don't be rough on me I am almost 40years old not a kid). By learning I mean being able to start it and turn without needing to grab on to something. I am still learning and will keep on learning. I am not the best balanced person in no way...but still everybody stares at me like I am an alien or something! The first problem I noticed was the charger. Too little time to charge (just 25mins?) and going from red to green and red again in small intervals when almost full. I know from previous electric vehicles that this is not the way it happens. Being an auto mechanic and since I had an e-bike scooter and e-bike before I was sort of familiar with Hub motors, controllers and batteries. This never happened to any of my previous vehicles. My suspicion that something was wrong was confirmed when while trying to accelerate, the EU turn off and I had my first (and only till this moment) faceplant. I hurt my hands (minor scratches) and my right leg near the knee. The verdict: the batteries were TOTALLY USELESS or at least NOT SUITABLE for such a device. Maybe a flashlight and not in an emergency would be fine! I took immediate action and ordered 16 cells of SAMSUNG 18650 at 2.6Ah (the purple ones). Within a day I had them over and opened the battery cover to take the original pack with BMS out and replace them. Needless to say the pack had a sticker 2.0Ah but even the most UNRELATED to electronics person would understand that a charger giving 2.0Amps would require at least one hour to fully charge them and not just 25 mins. Anyway, one by one the cells were in place on the BMS and soldered so nothing will tear them apart.... Put the new pack back in and closed the cover. The first test was the charging, It took 90mins to fully charge. Success! The device has never turned off and surely lasts a hell of lot more than before. I can get at least 7kms before the last LED. But since I still have the fear of the one last led standing faceplant, I decided to install a volt meter to be sure about it. So I opened the other cover as well, to investigate where to connect the 3 wires for the digital voltmeter. The motherboard has a sticker X5 on it. So it might be the same as an airwheel X5. I have found a + and - of battery voltage when turning the device on and near the cables of the LEDs for SOC, the low voltage + to feed the voltmeter. (Should explain that the digital volt meter requires a "+" and "-" of under 30V to operate and the third wire, usually yellow, is the measurable Voltage to be indicated). Still waiting the arrival of the package with the volt meter. The box is cut a small rectangle ready for it and the cables soldered. As soon as it arrives, it will be on. The last 5 days I went to work on it. I have to take the charger with me just to be sure but I can't live on like this!!! Now I have a plan to install 16 more battery cells in it. I think if I solder each cell parallel to an existing cell it will work. The BMS won't shut off, since the power requested will still be the same and cells being parallel will split the load and last longer.... If it can last 20kms I will surely be satisfied. The question I still need to find an answer to, is whether I need to buy the same cells as the ones I 've installed (2.6Ah) or ones of a different capacity (ie 3.2Ah)? Enough for now... I will post pics as soon as I finish the upgrades...
  3. I have a problem with my Airwheel X3. When turning the unit on and tilting it there as a grinding noise from the wheel and it will not stabilise, the wheel kicks when leaning the unit forward or back. Any one had a similar issue? What was the solution? Picked this up in China, now back in UK, so no warranty support. Thanks, Alan.
  4. Started as a stock airwheel x3. So far I mounted a kids bmx tire (14x2.125) and cut some fenders. Any pro tips on making this cheap model more dirt worthy without breaking the bank? Link to today's dirt testing of the wheel.
  5. Unexpected shut down

    I just want to put it out there that my Airwheel X3 has shut down unexpectedly four times now. I have been badly hurt. You are merrily going down the street and then fall flat on your face. Absolutely nothing you can do about it. I don't trust the unit anymore and want a full refund (the unit was only 4 weeks old when I first experienced this). The company I bought the unit from Airwheel.com are being unhelpful. They didn't respond to my emails for some time and now the burden is on me to get the unit up there for them to have a look. Would be interested to hear other peoples experiences of this.

  7. I have a used Airwheel Q1 with a 170 Wh battery that is capable of holding a charge for 3-4 hours of ride time and when the battery dies it will only take 1 hour to get a full charge. I'm selling this unit for $300 because it is scuffed up a little bit just from it falling on its side. I'm also the owner of Airwheel of Texas....and my company is a new upcoming store in the Houston area that specializes in selling the latest and greatest of Personal Transport devices. Right now our main focus is Airwheel. We're currently waiting for our first set of inventory to come in-stock...so if you our interested in another Airwheel Model you can place a preorder deposit for either the Q1, Q6, X3, and X8. And of course each model has its own price, but we're only asking for $200 in order to lock in your purchase because these are going to go fast and we suggest you should take the opportunity while you can! The pricing for the Airwheel models before and after preorder: X3: $300-$200= $100! X8: $350-$200= $150! Q1: $500-$200= $300! Q6: $600-$200= $400! If you are the first one to make a deposit today, I'll take $100 off the used Q1. So don't miss out on this great opportunity and get your Airwheel while you still can! Unfortunately I wasn't able to get any of the white and yellow Q1 models shown in the picture. If you're wanting one of Q6 models, please notify which color option you are wanting to buy. You can call me at 214-490-8282 or email me at zharrison88@gmail.com for any questions or concerns.
  8. I have a brand new Generic 14" wheel. For $350 It looks like a black/red Airwheel X3. I made a warranty claim on a generic 14". They ended up sending me a new one, but I had already bought a Ninebot (they expected me to be without a wheel for several weeks? ;-) ). So there it is. It's BRAND NEW. I just opened the box to take the picture. It comes with training wheels, charger, air pump, valve extender, lights for the pedals and a roll of protective foam. If possible I'd rather you pick it up. But if you wanna pay shipping in the US we can figure that out).
