Thank you @hobby16! I will order it. I can see pictures here now!

by any chance do you sell the actual charger? I have one but need a second one. If not, do you know where i can order one?

thanks!

No and no,  sorry.

84V chargers are indeed not generic and hard to find. Gotway has used a 4 pin connector probably to let the customer stuck with its charger. But you can probably count on Gotway  not to sell its chargers at racket prices like Ninebot.

An Inmotion V8 charger can also be changed to a GW charger by soldering the 4 pin connector, it would widen somehow the sourcing. Inmotion has generally quite good prices too.

Thank you. I believe Gotway has used the 4 pin connector so that people with 67v gotway models dont confuse the chargers and not plug in the wrong one. Using 84v charger for a 67v wheel, i imagine, can lead to unfortunate results.

its a good idea to use the V8 charger. I stead of soldering the pin connector, do you know if i can buy a ready connector that converts inmotion plug into the 4 pin gotway? That would be ideal... Thanks!!

Have you found a place that sells the V8 charger for cheap, the build quality might be better than Gotway's too? Also, wouldn't it damage the v3s+'s battery packs if you plug in two chargers?

I havent found it yet. 

Also, yeah i am not sure if i can plug it in with the gotway charger together. Not sure if in otion charger amperage is the same as Gotways (1.5a) and if its different, not sure if can be used together.

@Cloud,
@swvision

MSuper3 84V with battery not at 1600Wh have connectors with 3 pins ! Only the model with 1600Wh battery has 4 pins, go figure...

No, there is no problem using a Gotway 84V charger on Inmotion wheels and vice-versa, I can certify that, having made a mixte Charge Doctor allowing such setup, see more details about the battery topology on different brands here

The precaution needed though is to avoid a high charge current that will reduce the battery's lifetime, "high" depending on your wheel's battery capacity. See my post on "What is the recommended charge current". In a nutshell, when you want to know if your wheel can be fast-charged (eg at 4A, by connecting two 2A-chargers in //), the first thing to know is the battery's capacity in Wh.

Oh, great idea. Such ready converter don't exist of course. But I can sell you the required connectors (if you know how to solder) or I can make the converter for you, just ask me when you order the Charge Doctor.

Thank you. I actually already ordered the charge doctor yesterday. Not sure if you shipped it already or not. Yes that would be great if you could make the converter. Let me know how much that will cost. I sometimes solder but not very well, so i dont trust that it will hold long term if i do it myself.

 I still have to find the inmotion charger first. Let me see if i can find the inmotion charger, and i will let you know. 

how many ampers is the inmotion charger by the way?

if course, another gotway charger would be easier. I will ask Gotway about buying another charger also, will let you know

Thanks!
