  1. So what are the specs? Is this potentially better than the Minipro? That would actually be nice, IMO, as Ninebot doesn't seem to support those very well.
  2. Yeah, I figured that it might be fairly easy to sort out if I take the hoverboard apart. I was trying to avoid that, as I'll need to find a torx screwdriver for this one. I think that I can determine the polarity of the charger itself with a multimeter, though I haven't tried to yet. Thanks for the reply!
  3. I have a hoverboard with a broken charger cable. The cable broke right at the connection to the board. I think that I can resolder the connector, but I am not having much luck figuring out the polarity of each of the pins on the hoverboard itself. Is there a way to determine this, short of dissassembling the hoverboard itself? It is a Mozzie, if that is any help.
  4. Aluminum is obviously not ideal, but you wouldn't design it to "burst", you'd design it to vent the hot gases in a safe direction. Basically, you want something like this, but on a larger scale: http://www.bat-safe.com/web/ (obviously, they used steel and fiberglass, not aluminum)
  5. Of course, but the Tesla also has a lot more engineering and warranty/liability backing than the typical EUC manufacturer has.
  6. I'd still bet that it beats nothing, though. Isn't the lithium ion temperature ~1200 degrees? That is basically right at the melting temperature of aluminum if I'm not mistaken. Perhaps some fire retardant material within the container and ventilation could keep the fire somewhat contained.
  7. I can't say that I blame them for requiring insurance. The tour company bears a lot of responsibility for insuring a safe route is chosen and, IMO, is really the guilty party in this. I'm just glad that the restrictions on tour operators weren't more onerous.
  8. Sadly, there is a town relatively close to here that outlaws them along with basically anything else that has anything vaguely resembling a motor (except for golf carts). I'm glad that it is one of the few exceptions.
  9. Nice... that sounds like a lot of fun. I can definitely see where you are coming from with a Husky. I've heard they are basically tireless.
  10. If the objective is only running your dogs, do you think that your dogs can run at over 35mph? Also, which wheels are you looking at?
  11. You thought that his son had a mother-in-law but wasn't married?
  12. I have seen random people (perhaps even intentionally) connect their bluetooth audio to a hoverboard. It was pretty startling to the rider. In an apartment building, this could be a possibility.
  13. That is kind of the direction that my mind was going with this. I mean, the Quadcopter and R/C communities have a lot of experience with lithium-ion battery fires (admittedly with lipo packs rather than 18650s and similar cells). It doesn't seem to me that water is a common trigger there. Of course, I'm just guessing, but I'm afraid the water diagnosis might have some guesswork as well. Considering the gravity of the situation, that worries me a bit.
  14. LOL, no its just a variation of a name that I was auto-assigned by xbox live. BBQ is good, so I kept it.
