  1. This is on short notice, but we will be having a EUC meet-up in Valletta (near tritoni fountain) today at 5pm. Hope this will be a more frequent thing in Malta and encourage the use. If you can join us, just make it on time I'll try to get permission and post some pictures here later when all is over.

    The lightest EUC

    Oh I thought something got sorted out there. I ride mine in SZ when I am there. Yes totally agree, the S5 is nice to have for its better specs but the everyday commuting, the i5 is excellent
  3. Is that the original charger? I think mine is smaller (i remember it smaller than my laptop brick). I'll try to get my wife sending me a picture of it later. If different we can also compare the brick's specification
  4. Hi, Did you manage to find them? I have available but from Europe and better compare your board with a picture as there are 2 versions to what I remember one had a small PCB attached outside the sealed MB while the other had all built-in

    I can say the same, I'm just missing my S5 in my collection since the LHOTZ. Where do you ride in HK?

    The voltage reading as suggested @Slaughthammer works only with the IPS LHOTZ as far as what I tested. Forgot if it worked with the i5 As I have that wheel on the other side of the world but the i3(ZERO) shows them all 0 and it doesn't give you much information unfortunately
  7. an aged battery did the same to me, but it charged 100%. I have 2 cells show lower voltage (on the lhotz you can see their initial voltage by tapping the voltage on the setting page of the app) so for your case, it could be either a cell or there's one of the many cell voltage balancings cable not doing contact all the time. It is normal that when you slow down or let it rest a bit the voltage goes up after a few seconds and the low battery warning stops but it's not instant. 5-10 seconds
  8. Anyone up to meet in Malta? We can organize a meeting for anyone who's on the island
  9. Probably you are riding on a low pressure. I had to change once only and it happened when I did run on low pressure that I though it was enough. If you feel the wheel like moving sideways on rides, it's definitely on low. PS. Check the tire pressure weekly. As for changing the tire I used no tools (except to open the case). You simply need to align one side of the outer tube in the center of the rim, which makes room on the other side to slip (with slight force) over the rim. once you have one wall, the tube can go out easily. You only need to slip out one wall of the outer tire at a time. Same thing in reverse to slip the tube back in making sure you don't pinch the inner tube.
  10. IPS is not out of business. They sell mostly in China.
  11. Your first picture just loaded now (Was kind of impressed by the 400+views this post without a reply attracted) Do I see a black dot on the top red cable? can you check there is continuity there on that cable? Also the third clip (Always from top and actually all first 3) seems not to be fully inserted in the plug, can you see if you can push a bit the third cable in so it will align? I'm suspecting that the cables were not doing a good contact
  12. Hi @Nicholas, I'll try to get some details on your issue and get back to you. Since you reversed the connections you might have broken the LED strips but you need to test that. As your original problem I was thinking of a firmware update as I had encountered something similar before but you said after opening it which makes me think that a firmware update cannot be of help. Will get back to you when I get more details
  13. In my other post I explained a bit on how it should work. When you buy a product you buy it off the other end's hands, If the shipping was defective you deal with the shipping company which I don't know but assume is not, the shipping has to be paid as they delivered the goods and you accepted them. Shipping back will again request another service but (unless agreed before) shipping is customer's responsibility, not to mention the customs clearance issues to return it. If they had to allow returns, everyone will be importing goods as returns in China, faulting the import export strategy at a certain level. As regards to apogeebuy, they should be somewhere near my area but the address seems to be incomplete. At best you can try to call them (or ask the police to do so as I know put some pictures where you hinted that you filed a complaint in your state) on +86 177 8382 5663 (which I derived from their wechat account.) If they don't answer at least in Chinese, these are invalid and you want to break any hope with them you can always file a complain wilt ICANN with incorrect details which I read somewhere online that it will fault their website presence. This is my extent that I will help you out, sorry if I do your next public complain will be that I didn't. I truly believe that you're putting the IPS company name a bad image when they actually are trying to help you out outside their channels. The wheel you bought they sold it domestically not internationally. Only your ap**** tag here holds and you only posted communication with IPS and nothing with Ap****

    @steve454 Yes, babies eat their parent's time (Esp when you're 24/7 with) so I'm not being here often and unfortunately rarely riding. Anyone needs the app though can send me a private message. @Randalab I'm sorry to read about your happenings. In my line of work I reach many disappointed customers on purchasing from abroad because most expect the same after sale as buying from a shop and forget the distance in between (its not easy to return a defective high valued product in China for several understandable reasons and you need to keep this in mind if you purchase a single product directly). Now in your case I think you have to take it against who you purchased it from (Quoting you po*******co). Ms. Yue from IPS in my opinion went out of her way to help you out and you still blame them. If you bought it directly from IPS she should have all the obligation to assist you, but since you bought it from another source you should talk to your supplier and if they think they should reach to IPS, your supplier should reach to IPS factory. If the large dealers are not working with IPS I doubt it is for quality but more for unreachable negotiation, unplanned future issues or irresponsible wrong information leaks and by quality I am not saying they have an always 100% good product out of the factory, but when they don't they do sort it out (which I call quality as trust me all factories have a defect by at least a minor one but not all admit and resolve them). Back to your case, trashing the image of a company you purchased for is making yourself loose the value of your purchased product when your issues get solved. If they don't respond timely does not mean they disappeared, again don't forget your distance and again it's not IPS's obligation to respond to you even though they know about some issues, their obligation is to send the resolutions to their direct buyers (dealers and single purchases directly from IPS). As for the shell, I didn't see the S5 but my last trades where on the I5 and I can understand why they don't sell shells separately. The ideal mounting of the shells need specific tools in my opinion. I hope you get your issues resolved though.
