  1. Have you ever wished someone made a charger that had variable voltage, variable amperage, auto detect between 110v/240v, swappable charging connections, and was smaller and lighter than two 10 amp chargers? Behold the Chargery C10325 charger. The first time I saw this charger was watching trip updates from Archee Jan Bloch as he rode his modified Gotway 3108W Monster from Boston to New York City and back, traversing 625 miles of continuous riding and charging. The C10325 is a 1500W charger and weighs 3.5kg (7.72 lbs). It's is a big boy, but still slightly lighter and about 9% less vo
  2. I was given a number of hoverboards to use for projects in a school. None have charged batteries or chargers. None work as hoverboards and not interested in fixing them. Just using the parts to do other things. Some of the motors are going to being used to make DIY wind turbines. The remaining parts are going to be used to build other things with. This is where my questions start and i hope someone has the answers or can point me in the right direction. And. thanks in advance. The hoverboards are model "Smart" with specifications listed as 650x245x230 36v. Not much mor
  3. October 2020 I published an article about using a J1772 adapter to charge your electric unicycle (EUC) at EV charging stations. In that article I included a demonstration video of how to use the adapter. Despite its niche use within an already niche sport the video and article were relatively popular. The adapter has been a game changer for riders in SoCal and elsewhere, but while planning a couple of future rides I discovered that there are unique situations where EV chargers aren’t available and neither are regular 5-15 outlets.

  4. Hey everyone, I have a ninebot z10. Was my first and is my only wheel. I know many people experienced issues with their z10s. But i never had a real issue with mine. Unfortunately i have not ridden in a long time due to life being too busy. I tried to charge my wheel up the other day amd it doesn't respond. The charger light stays green. I tried disconnecting the battery but that didnt work. I tried charging the battery directly with a cable connected to the charger. But that hasn't work. I am going to retry this with different wires because they might not be connecting. Doe
  5. The manual makes a point about a specific order of connections when charging a wheel. I have MCM4 HS but I suppose most Gotways should be nearly the same in this regard. The order is: To charge: * Connect the three-prong connector to the wheel * Plug the charger to the wall socket After having finished charging: * Disconnect the three prong from the wheel * Unplug the charger from the wall socket Is this the ritual other Gotway shamans observe? I ask because even though I'm ready to accept this nonsense for the sake of preservation of an expensive p
  6. Dear all, My Inmotion V5+ does not seem to charge full to 100% as indicated on the app anymore. While the light from the adapter (that rectagular block thing) switches from red to green, when I connect to the app the percentage is always only 90 something, never 100%. Moreover, when I connect to the app while charging the V5+, there seems to be no indication on the app to say that it is indeed charging. Any help? TIA
  7. I have provided a link to my google drive to view the content. a few videos. photos as well of the 3d model and what the 3D print looks like. overall, very happy with the results. looks like default. The reason for this is that the chargeport is more robust, i like the industrial feel and look of it. it will also help more with cooling as the Diode i use gets a bit hot during usage. im also changing the cables going to the BMS later on. https://drive.google.com/open?id=1Aa6wG_wxsMRMiNSTTbRAnRXS1kHZy7Q8
  8. DATE CHANGE!! This ride is now on Wed the 19th. REQUIRED: 1600+ Wheel (42+/- mile). REQUIRED: Driver's license (maybe a passport, read details below) REQUIRED: Rapid charger (if you don't have 2100 wh or more). This ride begins with a ride on the Metrolink. This means you cannot be late. There is no later Metrolink train that goes to O'side in the morning. I strongly suggest taking the Metrolink from the closest station that serves the ORANGE COUNTY LINE. This is a weekday ride and you can beat traffic, accidents, etc by taking the train. Take the
  9. Hello All, First Post I'm a an avid EUC rider, riding everyday to work and back in busy London. I currently ride a Ninebot Z10, which I love as the ride is so stable and I find this is really helpful when I am on the road with traffic. Despite the many reports of issues, I had had none until 6 weeks ago, when my Z10 stopped charging up. it appeared to be charging as the battery charging display was flashing as per when it charges. but the batteries were not getting any juice and the light on the charger remained green at all time. After many hours attempting to charge
  10. It may appertain to the region of a specific region, South Korea that I am about to tell the story: I’ve gone through too many evil things happening here after having arrived to South Korea 4 years ago. Thus this may help understand what’s going on this isolated, bigoted people . I’m also a South Korean but feel like an outcast. Lets start with a trivial thing: I’m frequently being blocked from charging my EUC in local coffee shops and local cafe which are all Korean branded. Virtually all of Korean brand. No exceptions. In Starbucks or McDonald which are originated from overseas I

    Not charging

    Hi guys. I have a problem and hoped some of you might help me out... I have a NineBot One E+ with a 1rattwerkstatt battery upgrade that's been running faithfully for two years now without any promlem at all.Last week I gave the wheel an overhaul, cleaning it and removing dirt and I've not had occation to use it until a few days ago after that. The wheel runs just fine, but it won't charge. The powerbrick has a tiny led that glows red while it's charging, and green when fully charged or not plugged in. It now glows green constantly, and the wheel hasn't gained any power even after
  12. I’ve had my wheel a couple of weeks now and today after about an hour on the GenV charger set at 3A my wheel started beeping about once every 5 seconds. I unplugged it and waited a few minutes then plugged it back in and it continued charging without any issues. Any ideas why it was beeping?
  13. So, I know what the Charge Doctor can be used for but I have no idea how to program it. It has one button !! I read this: http://hobby16.neowp.fr/2016/11/12/autocut-adjustment/ from the maker's website, but I'm no closer to knowing how to program the 80% (or whatever) cut off for battery preservation. I bought the V2 with two inputs, as I have 2 chargers, fyi.
  14. Hello All! Patiently awaiting delivery of the V10 🤞 (yay) ... In the interim, I've been doing a bit of research on charging options. I understand the supplied charger takes approximately 5 hours to recharge from empty. However, I've seen talk online of so called "fast-chargers" that can reduce this time downwards. Can anyone offer any advice/guidance on this front, particularly relating to the V10? I've struggled to find any definite answers, a lot of talk around Gotways but nothing concrete for the Inmotion. I've seen talk around 4V/5V chargers but it's a little beyond me if

    HELP

    HELLO, I have had my IPS F400 for a while but only recently have i had this problem! Basically i went to plug it in to charge and gave me a nasty white spark and then the light on the charger just stayed green, when its meant to turn red to indicate its charging! Please someone help, this is my only way of travel XD
  16. My KS14S has stopped charging with both the factory charger or the fast-charger I got through ewheels. I think it may have stopped when I replaced the trolley bars, though I can't imagine what I might have done in fixing these that would affect the charging. It does still work fine--I was riding it today. And the new trolley bars are great! It just doesn't charge. I opened up the charging port to see if I could see anything obvious. At first I thought maybe I had found the problem in that only two cords are attached where I expected to see three (see two photos attached). However, I don't see
  17. Got tired of carrying around the bulky charger to charge on the go on trips. So I had an idea to wire the charger internally, charging with the same 4-pin plug but off a 110v into the charger. Also solving the problem with battery power at the charging port .
  18. Hi, I have a Gotway MCM3 and I like it very much. Yesterday I went to work with it and there the battery (according to the app) was at about 40%. I charged (or thought I did, maybe I did something wrong). When I wanted to go home it said it was at 20%, which meant I couldn't ride it home. I went back charged for about 8min. To use it to go to the bus. It then said it was 60% full. At home, I charged it until the charger LED turned green. Then it said it was 80%. Later on, I connected it again and the LED was red for a while and then turned green. It still said 80%. I use the non-social go
  19. Since the Tesla side panels open with only 4 screws, I got to thinking: what would it take to charge an extra couple of battery packs, separately from the unicycle? For many use cases, this approach cures a lot of range anxiety associated with the Tesla, without adding weight to the main unit. For example, I might charge batteries at a friendly coffee shop, while draining the installed set by exploring the city. When I run low on juice, just come back for quick swap—back in business. I think it’s just a matter of finding the right adaptors to plug your charger into the battery pa
  20. Hello guys this is my very first topic. I'm going to take my new Msuper 2 to go around the Netherlands this summer (because of the bike roads going all around) I was wondering if any of you have ever asked an establishment (bar, restaurant) if you could charge your wheel a bit while you drink/eat/etc... I ask this because I want to do as few stops as possible but i might be short a kilometer or two, I have 2 friends in cities far away from one another and I can almost make it in one full charge, I've been there ad seen some friendly people but if they all refuse I'd be obligate
  21. I wanted to have a second charger for my ninebot, but the original charger is very expensive. So I ordered a charger from china. The voltage is 62.7 V compared to 61.8 V of the original charger, measured with multimeter. Is this a problem? I hope not, because 62.7/15 =4.18<4.2, but I just want to make sure
  22. The V5F as sold by eWheels optionally comes with a "rapid" charger that outputs 2.5 amps. The standard charger that comes with the V5F outputs 1.5 amps. I have both and figured I'd use the standard charger for ordinary at-home charges since I don't care how long they take, and pack the rapid charger for all-day trips so I could pick up some juice along the way. The two disadvantages of the rapid charger are its size and weight. It's considerably larger than the standard one, which makes it less appealing to carry in my backpack. (See photos.) The standard charger weighs 15.1 ounces (4
  23. I usually deplete my battery (240W ninebot one E) rinding for one hour and half. I would like to extend to two hours or more. I need a few watts more in my battery (+100W I think) Since I have another batteries (LIPO, LIFEPO4, etc...) at home to use, and a DC-DC converter that I can carry in my backpack...Do you know if anybody sucesfully tried to charge the ninebot while riding? I think than I can charge the internal battery from an external one with the DC-DC converter working at 63vdc at 1amp, easily (if BMS can handle it). The ninebots appears to work while charging, bu
  24. Okay, here is a question for all of you EUC math geeks... A road runs up the side of a hill. The road is 2.5km long, with a (fairly) consistent gradient of 0.1 (10%). If a hypothetically fat unicyclist (120kg - including lunch) lived 1km (40%) up that hill and had a fully charged EUC (IPS191 - 1000W / 340Wh), how far would he have to ride UP the hill (from his home), to allow him to ride DOWN the hill to the bottom without overcharging his battery?
  25. Fun experiment of the week -- has any one ever started out with a minimal charge, say 10%, and charged their Ninebot one up to near 100% simply by going down a really long hill or mountain? I imagine one could easily set a distance record on ideally shaped terrain. A few miles of downhill runs, followed by straight and level, followed by more downhill runs. With the right terrain, you could roll on indefinitely!
