  1. Greetings All, If anyone is seeking a career change, we really need a 4th full-time individual to assist in managing the burgeoning sales/support loads. Please send application to sales@ewheels.com While there will be a short period for learning-on-the-go, the ideal candidate will be a seasoned, experienced veteran, from a high-volume environment, who can hit the ground running quickly. It should be emphasized, that this job is really, really difficult & demanding... Requirements: Maintain Tempo: daily email/call volumes vary, can range from 500+ on a Monday to
  2. This viewpoint is not correct. Mickey has poured a great many hours in creating his channel content, I doubt anyone has worked as hard, or shown the level of commitment that he has. Whatever compensation he has received through referals, product, is in no way commensurate to the time, energy & expertise invested. I can only surmise that this video was intended to invoke the polarizing strong reactions that it has. My personal opinion is that it oversteps the boundaries of 'pushing the limits', relishing danger-for-danger's sake. This might have an appeal to <25% of the general aud
  3. The v1.07 firmware has current monitoring, it will beep if set >5A, even 5.01A... Setting to 4A will suppress the chirp. Requested that KS raise the threshold to 5.5A in future FW update. Case the unfortunate charger incident was leaving the charger outside on a boat, exposed to the sea air. If the charger is ready ~84v, it's perfectly fine.
  4. The point is that this is charging-on-the-go. Average power consumption cruising at 20MPH, is about 400W, with the power-bank outputting 252W of max power, ~70% of consumption. Obviously the 1110Wh pack may not suit everyone's needs, just putting some options on the table. The DC output has a variable voltage selector, up to 84.2v. Note: I did make the prediction to KS that there would be some strong dissenting voices on this S18 battery choice...
  5. There is an option for Customers worried that the 1110Wh pack won't cut it for their needs, King Song have an external 780Wh power-bank, raising the total potential capacity to 1,890Wh, which we have in stock. This would require fitting into an back-pack & having a tether wire trickle charging the main pack @ 3A/84v (there's an output voltage toggle); while it's not perfect, it should be a workable solution. The price for this hardware is $650.
  6. The early results from the poll show the H-666 as the clear leader, it's the 'wicked' tire . Another tire under evaluation is the CST C-186 knobbly, brought to attention by @mrelwood in this thread, there's a question about if there's sufficient shell clearance.
  7. Our 2nd supply arrived in on Monday, we have 60+ in stock now, this was about 6.5 months after placing the order with the factory https://www.ewheels.com/product/new-inmotion-v8f-518wh-battery-1000w-motor/
  8. There's a discussion about possible tire options for the V11. Seeing that no one is better informed about this than Riders who rack up thousands of miles each year, which do you guys/girls prefer? Even when a winner is chosen, we plan to stock a couple different varieties to have on hand.
  9. I don't believe so, at least not this final state of the prerelease V11. @tinawong shared some glorious 3D renders of the S18 in the all-black color scheme: warning product always looks better in renders than real-life
  10. It should be live over the weekend; to fit into the appropriate pricing slots, we'll be introducing at $1,899. @Kuji Rolls is a big fan, I believe his review video is coming out in the next week, says it's the superior to all other Wheels he's ridden...
  11. GX12-3 charging connectors? (Presumably yes?). Yes, it's the GX12-3 connector. Bluetooth speakers? (Presumably no?). Looks like they've dropped the BT speakers, not popular enough? IP55 confirmed or at least confirmed as being sought? (Presumably being sought?). Yes, if the Spec sheet is to be believed Seat? (Presumably no?). Seems doubtful
  12. Sorry for delay, there's been so much to going on.... Launched the V11 deposit page, signs are promising that we'll be able offer at the target $2k target price. Please let know me if there's any specific questions to ask to our IM contacts https://www.ewheels.com/product/new-inmotion-v11-1420wh-battery-2000w-motor-pedal-suspension-deposit/ When will the $1,999 price be confirmed? Initially Inmotion had set the introductory price at $2,299, we felt this was too steep for a Wheel with these specifications & have been lobbying to try to offer at
  13. There's some great innovation here. Some thoughts on seeing the presentation: 'Inspiration' from the Z10: there's quite a bit of superficial resemblance with the Z10, especially the top cover & faux carbon fiber sides. Battery Pack: it's great they were able to fit a 1420Wh pack within the motor housing; Ninebot, in a wider 4" motor just managed to pack in 960Wh. This is going to keep the center of gravity lowered, improving the stability over other Inmotion Wheels. 18W/7800 Lux Headlight: this is an insane amount of light. To be effective, I feel they really ought to a
  14. I can attest that when @Seba volunteered to pickup this project, he has always acted in the most conscientious way imaginable. One of the only conditions KS had on providing their code for the firmware updates , was that they didn't want (quite understandably) this proprietary information floating around on a open source repository. If financial reward would have been Seba's motivation for this project, he would have stayed 100 miles clear. On a purely time/$$$ basis, doing dev work for a corporate client would have been many times more remunerative. I'm really very grateful for making
  15. We've requested that GW disable the start-up sound in our production, however sometimes these requests are a hit-or-miss. Latest update I had this morning was that the MSP production is delayed, some of GWs suppliers are still off, 7+ weeks counting, owing to the blasted virus concerns.
