I received my KS-18XL in June 1, 2019. This is my first wheel ever, amazing fun, been riding it for a month, 727 km done on it. I started reading about battery packs and how to keep it fresh for a long time. Should I charge to 100% or just 80%? Only then did I notice that my wheel would only charge to 85%, it would stop charging at 80.7 V, then later settle down to 80 V. Started debugging, maybe it's a faulty charger? KS-18XL has two 20s3p battery packs connected in parallel. I noticed that if only one is connected, the wheel charges normally to 84 V, if only another is connecte
Have we ever considered that the real charging voltage for our EUC's batteries is not the same coming out from the charger? Every battery pack has its BMS, and the charging voltage entering BMS reachs the batteries through a diode (that blocks the returning current to the charger). This diode cause a voltage drop of about 0.6 or 0.7 volts. So, the real charging voltage that goes to the batteries is not 67,2 volts but 66,6 or 66,5 volts. And IMHO this is good because results in a lower stress and a longer life for the batteries.
