Finally got down to making an adaptor for my impending KS16X As I come from an escooter background, I have a large collection of fast chargers. They usually use the 3 pin GX16-3 connector. Made an adaptor to use my fast charger with the Lenovo connector. It was really rough finding this at the electronic shops in Singapore. I mated it with a voltmeter that is calibrate-able so that the output reading is as close to 84.0V Here is the reading with the 5A 72V(84v) charger attached Some of my voltmeters and adaptors. You can see the gx16-3 to gx16-4 adaptor at the back. I use that to charge my Gotway MSX. Can’t wait for the KS16X to be here!
First of all, I'd like to hope that @esaj would know more. A lot of people are having issues with Speed Chargers, including myself. I'm hoping that this (hopefully mega thread) post will collect all the data we users need to know. First, How to determine if it works. If you plug in the charger and press the on switch on the back, the display will show it's current set 100% max capacity. It will vary from ~50v to ~90v or more. IF THIS NUMBER DISPLAYED IS NOT YOUR BATTERY PACKS VOLTAGE IT IS NOT WORKING PROPERLY. (I hope [desperately] that someone can explain how to change this voltage limiter) Second, What do the knobs do? The knob on the right adjusts what percentage of battery charge it will go to (if the max voltage setting is correct). The knob on the left adjust the amps going into the battery. Third, how come my battery isn't charging? There are several ways to diagnose the problem. The first of which is to simply, try a different outlet. The next would be to verify the voltage gage compared to your battery capacity. If the battery in your device is a 67v and the voltage on the display of the charger says 58v, it will only charge to 58v. THE OPPOSITE CAN HAPPEN TOO. If you have a battery at 67v and the charger says 95v it can overcharge your battery leading to a fire or explosion. If neither of those are your cause and you are getting the correct voltage display and power is going to the charger, the problem could either be the plug that goes into your device or your charging port on the device. First determine if it is the charger using a voltmeter and confirm its accuracy with the display. If that is not the issue, you may have to open up your device for further inspection. (I will not go into that detail because this thread is focusing on the chargers.) If anyone would like to add information here, please feel free. You are not obligated to help provide any information but if you do, thank you. Now, if someone smarter than me would like to explain. Please share what changing the AMP output does on these chargers. Anyone?
