  6. You'd need to use something like the Charge Doctor to see the actual amount of watt hours that are charged into the pack, but 60 minutes does sound a bit low (depending on how high output the charger has). Btw, I saw in another thread that you said the cells are Samsung ICR18650-29E. It seems Samsung doesn't have ICR-models except ending with 28A, 30A or 30B or 32A, the 29E should be INR? Not completely sure of that though. Doing a quick search for ICR18650-29E, all the sellers I found where chinese from Alibaba, so they could still be fake cells, there was actually one chinese company who sol

  10. Long time lurker first time poster........! Well after following the release of the Uniwheel I got to spend 5mins which was not enough time..! I ride day to day a Ninebot E+ and I bloody love it but with it being a company shrouded by smoke and mist and slight of hand as much as I love the bot I hate not knowing what is coming from these guys... what the bloody firmware is going to do or what is updated with each release... Then you have the fact they release a model 2 months later there is a newer model... Which is faster goes further etc etc... My bugbear is not know

  12. 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... Summary: 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

  14. Just for fun, I found this page on "Analogies to Assist in Understanding Bodily Injuries Due to Motor Vehicle Collision." To quote the relevant section: A fall off a 3.3 feet desk results in a speed at impact of 10 m.p.h. A 10 m.p.h. change in speed (Delta-V) in a motor vehicle collision is equivalent to falling off a desk. Similarly, a 15 m.p.h. change in speed is equivalent to falling 7.5 feet - off a step ladder. A 20 m.p.h. change in speed is equivalent to falling 13.4 feet - off the roof of a one story building. A 25 m.p.h. change in speed is equivalent to falling 20.5 feet - off a t

  16. 18650's are LiIon, not LiPoly which are soft shelled pouch batteries, I've never seen such a device on a LiPoly, except as part of (say) a laptop battery, I am aware of 18650 cells with protection circuits but never come across them being called PTC's. What I do know is they should absolutely never, ever, be used on an EUC, they would give you 16 times as many chances of faceplanting. I cannot fathom your reasoning for 3S being connected to the Deans plug, If anything needs lower voltages regulators are used; tapping partial battery packs would cause cell imbalance that might exceed the B

  18. I don't see why electric cars won't go for several hundreds of thousands of miles, albeit with battery replacements every now and then. My leaf is getting quite ancient and is still going strong on the original battery 36,000 miles since 2011, I would hope it would get to 100,000 on the original battery. I would hope that the battery would then be replaced and it would just keep going. Aside from fuel and tax savings, servicing costs are tiny compared to fossil fuel cars. The one disadvantage is you have to drive like a snail and you need to wrap up in winter, however this means the tyre

  26. @HunkaHunkaBurningLove, Honda are working on a self balancing in both axis EUC see at 5:00 minutes in this video: However this uses a sort of caterpillar track come wheel design that, to me, looks a too complex to be a reliable concept, I certainly cannot envisage it working well after a few dips in mud. If a mechanical gyro could be made to work as well as it appears to in the Lit motorcycle it would make EUC's very easy to ride and I doubt it would consume much additional energy. I can't quite get my head around what the interaction with turning, etc would be though? It looks

  27. @tjcooper, it's just occurred to me that you need to be looking at this thread: The actual post I have linked to above has a picture (thank you @Tomek) of the bare BMS with 18650 cells ready to be connected together. If you have been building electric bike batteries out of 18650's and tapping partial packs for lower voltages, yet have not come across the need for a BMS, I am really puzzled how you have been keeping the cells balanced? If you have been ignoring the need to balance you have been really lucky if you haven't wrecked the packs within a few months or had them catch

  28. There is an old joke, "It's not the fall that hurts, it is the sudden stop at the end!" If you "fall" from your EUC you are only falling a few feet. The majority of the energy is forward momentum. As @EUC Extreme says, it is possible to fall at higher speeds, IF you have the right protection and you just slide to a stop eventually. The problem is that most of us do not ride with enough protection to stop 40km/h worth of forward momentum!

  29. I think it will be insanely difficult (comparable to standing still on a turned of unicycle - just a bit easier to keep balance because of the wheel's angular momentum conservation when turning, but also more difficult to get on)

  30. I am using the information I tested and registered before here: https://github.com/generic-electric-unicycle/documentation/wiki/Motor I added the integral term now and so I have now a PI controller. When the I term is a bit more high, I can see the motor kind of oscillating. I am thinking in doing some more testing and adding the full PID. Finally, setup fixed slow speed a bit more than walking speed and try ride the unicycle like that - do you think will be rideable with a fixed speed?? --- https://github.com/generic-electric-unicycle/firmware/blob/feature/speed_control/src/m

  32. Okay Kevin, that DEFINITELY qualifies as crazy, especially on an EUC with no redundant systems. Here's an excerpt from an article on driver safety: The human perception time; is how long the driver takes to see the hazard, and the brain realize it is a hazard requiring an immediate reaction. This perception time can be as long as ¼ to ½ a second. Once the brain realizes danger, the human reaction time is how long the body takes to move the foot from accelerator to brake pedal. Again this reaction time can vary from ¼ - ¾ of a second. These first 2 components of stopping distanc

  33. @HunkaHunkaBurningLove Fascinating concept! I believe that EUCs & EVs are in their infancy and that we will see tremendous advances in personal transport technology within the next few years. Your gyroscopically stabilized EUC that is totally self-balancing will eventually come to pass. Sure there will be technical obstacles, but what we can conceive, we can (eventually) achieve. After all, if someone told you 30 years ago that today you would be carrying around more computer power in your back pocket than was on the Apollo 11 that landed on the moon, you'd think they had lost their mind

  36. Ok, so I really received the slower version I am not yet sure if it is caused by just the board or if I have the 350W motor instead of 500W as well. I should get the answers tomorrow. The ride compared to generic or kingsong is much harder - similar to ninebot set in one of the harder settings. It starts tiltback at around 15kph and beeps at 17kph. At 18 kph it is so tilted I didn't have the guts to push it further. I got the version with 264WH battery. And it seems there is enough power - idling or faster accelerations have so far been managed. The big black plates on the sides that l

  45. finally collected all the battery ingredients, now i just need to find a quiet moment to do all the soldering and testing (which may take a while, busy times) and about the fuse: i figured it may be a double-safe solution to shunt discharge cutoff of the bms via a fuse. in this way if the fuse blows, there's always the secondary protection of the original cutoff in place. also, exposing the fuse will allow me to un-shunt the wheel without unwrapping the battery if i ever change my mind or for testing the bms.

  46. I don't think there will be many more cases of burning or exploding batteries for these hoverboards. I mean unless you buy it off a website of some unknown brand or non labelled board, chances are slim this will happen to anyone buying a board in the year 2016 and upwards. Amazon for instance removed all the cheap non-tested knockoff boards in mid December 2015 so now you have a very small variety of boards. All of which (or at least more than half) have a 1 year warranty and trusted battery from Samsung.

  47. Depends a lot on the size of the tire. I think the street with 14inch 30kmh is sufficient. 18inch 45kmh probably suffice. But. For Extreme is being driven out of the street, maximum speed 18inch should at least be 80-100kmh. When the time on the town, your speed is approximately 10-15kmh. In fact, I would hope also that other among the people much higher rate of speed no one would use.
