    New Inmotion V10 (V8 Fast)

    This forum doesn’t have real trolls. I run a Facebook group called Bad Drivers in Sarnia & News with almost 8000 members. I’ve learned to ignore lots of stuff these days. Who comments on YouTube these days? I rarely do these days. I may post to YouTube just the share it on Facebook.

    I did get the sarcasm. Didn’t you get mine?

    You don’t have to yell it!

    I’m curious on how the 2 halves of the battery case are going to be bonded together. It should be glued/welded together and not just siliconed.

    Did I miss something? Was this over the gif questioning? If it was, you haven’t been on the real internet.

    No I wasn't being sarcastic. When you buy something when it first comes out like this from a non trivial company, you would expect it was ready for release to the consumers with all the bugs worked out. Sorry but I have only been riding for 1.5 years and the NB1 C+ was my first wheel which had no issues.

    Just as I thought! Inmotion already had these designed and in production. What's next? New board? I didn't think I was going to be a guinea pig when I bought this wheel. I thought it was a finished product and not a product in development.

    Sure but it is taking up so much real estate on the wheel just for looks. I'm sure all those big hill riders would have preferred larger heat sinks and cooling methods than all those LEDs....

    Once the battery is totally encased, there shouldn't be issues if water gets in there. When I get the kit and do the repair, I'm going to evaluate all the components and determine for myself, what other measures are needed. I may even put drain holes in it if I feel it can't be perfect (except for the battery and electronics). I wonder if a heat pipe can be installed and connected to another heat sink or even the pedal support? Personally, I think all those side LEDs should be done away with in favour of a better designed wheel. Use that real estate for heat dissipation instead. I wanted the safest wheel, not the one with the most lights on it.

    That battery case must have been implemented by INMOTION as a production fix because it wouldn’t be designed and built so quickly to be available so soon.

    I was going to wrap it with 2” wide electrical tape an rtv silicone where the wires come out. Is there room for a battery case or is that already being done with the newer batches? If not done already then that could take some time to produce.

    I’ve got over 700 km on my V10F and haven’t dropped it yet. My first wheel - NB1 C+ is a different story! First day on that learning had the battery fly out of it. Not sure why the double sided foam tape wasn’t peeled to stock it in the wheel.

    I heard it won't be in North America??? til Christmas time!

    I'm thinking that waterproofing the battery pack completely is a better solution than trusting the seal in the tire well will hold up with stones and rocks grinding between the tire and the plastic shell. I'm going to do that as well. I hope I don't have signs of water in the battery when I disassemble the wheel.
