  1. If anyone can shed some light on this I'd be most appreciative. I tore down my IPS Zero 260 because it simply wouldn't charge anymore. This, after a few stages of degrading performance (e.g. a one-off cutout at low speed, limited range, erroneous low battery warning, wouldn't charge past 80% or so, etc.). These occurred over a period of a few months of daily use. Thinking that I had bad cells (I don't know, just guessing) I decided to remove the battery pack and get an estimate to build a new one. I know it'll be tough to afford that but I hate being without my EUC. As I got into it I also checked all the connections and wires for any sign of shorts. Finding no serious wiring issues I decided to look at the board and this is what I found (see pics). Link to full resolution pics in my Google drive: https://drive.google.com/folderview?id=1ML7ZwkBCOBkzBhUFISRJnN_qxOSg1ZkY I'm certainly no expert but it doesn't look good to me. Could the corrosion and water damage seen in the pics be the cause of all my issues? Replacing the batteries will likely be prohibitive but a board repaired might be doable. But, I'd hate to do a board repair only to find out I've not solved the problems and that I'll still need batteries. Any thoughts? Also, if you know of anyone who could do the work please give recommendations. I'm in south Orange County CA.
  2. Hi, thank you for the great forum. I would like to start with EUC so I have not much knowledge. I want to buy an EUC but have not decided yet. I would be thankful for help! I live in a city (and especially my street) which is quite steep so some power is needed. I do not intend to use it regularly for my commute but more for fun or for some travels with trains etc. Therefore range is not a big issue. I like speed. I am not squeamish when it comes to carrying weight, but as mentioned before, I will use it for public transport so a medium weight would be nice. I do not care much about the design. I care for durability. I do not need a fancy app but setting a speed limit for the beginning which can be removed when I think it is the right time is good. I do not mind buying a used one, but my impression was that the price difference is small. So I thought about parameters like this: 500W/15km/28km/h/12kg I do not want to invest a lot and would like to invest below 400€, nevertheless, I do not want to invest 350€ for an EUC which I will consider too weak after a few weeks. I considered the Ninebot S2 which I can get for about 330€ with warranty I considered the Gotaway MCM3 (130WH) for 313€ without warranty I considered the Gotaway MCM3 (170WH) for 360€ without warranty I considered the Gotaway MCM4 (130WH) for 463€ without warranty I considered this one (https://www.aliexpress.com/item/2016-New-Fashion-style-Powered-Bluetooth-unicycle-1600W-self-balancing-car-smart-car-single-wheel-thinking/32738452250.html) for 284€ but when I asked about more details the seller told me it was out of stock. I considered the IPS ZERO (240WH) for 421€ without warranty . If you have other recommendations or better prices (for Germany) I would be thankful. Also if you think my parameters are bullshit feel free to tell me. Thank you very much!
  3. Ive been riding my ips zero day n night, sunny days, rainy days on cement/paved roads and dirt roads. It has performed all times until yesterday. Coming home after a 4km ride in rain I couldnt turn it off. Figured it was water making it way into the interior and shortcircuit the power. Since I live 3 stairs up I decided ill just carry it up. lifting it up made the wheel alarm go on and since only way to turn it off is to push the powerbutton... that didnt work... 4 hours later the button still didnt work and I had coverd it with towels and laundry and a big paperbox and the alarm still went through all that and messed up my head. So I start opening the damn thing while alarm still going BEEEP! Once i got the cover off WHOA, that noise is loud. I was being attacked by my cats aswell as trying to figure out how to stop the sound, for some reason they reacted more aggressive towards me instead of the source. Pulled off the on/off button but that didnt do anything. then I started disconnecting the bigger cords to find which cord led to the speaker. It took bout 10-15 seconds of that sound then i had to cover it up and get some ear protection. I dont know what devilish design those alarm are on the zero but its loud. (btw its the small yellow pin connector at the top that goes to the speaker). I still have a small ringing in my ears now. So now I got a smashed cover (couldnt handle unscrewing while listening) and a broken power button. Decided to try it by just connecting the on/off wires today and... the thing works. Just have to fix some new casing and new power button and it should be good to go. Figured I share my story if anyone else happens to come in same situation. if powerbutton fails, DO NOT LIFT IT UP! just let it dry out and then try the power button again. I was ready smash the thing to pieces with a hammer if pulling the cords didnt work, Im glad I didnt have to.
  4. Instead of charging when I plug it in to the charger, my IPS Zero now powers itself on as soon as I connect the power cord. Just started happening after a few months of issue-free operation and several hundred miles of riding. Since it turns on when I plug it in, it also won't charge. I'm a bit leery of any power-related issues for obvious reasons; has anybody seen or experienced this before? HUGE THANKS CHEERS
  5. Super-excited that my IPS Zero has arrived in the U.S., FedEx shows it in Memphis and it should be arrive to me in San Francisco this week. In order to pass through customs, the seller needed to ship the 340wh batteries separately. They told me DHL rejected the shipment twice before it was accepted — without batteries — by FedEx and successfully shipped. The batteries will be shipped Monday now that the wheel has passed through customs. I have studied CSMeyers' teardown photos, but can't figure out which screws and parts will need to be disassembled to install the batteries. Will it be obvious to me when I receive my Zero where the screwholes are and what needs to be taken off? I'm pretty good with assembly and disassembly but any guidance would be appreciated. It looks from the teardown that the outer shell and a plastic cover over the batteries will need to be removed. Thanks and looking forward to my second electric unicycle. Expecting this Zero to have the range and the power to get me across the city to work. My X3 clone is great and has been reliable but doesn't quite have the juice.
  6. All, Happy to announce I have taken shipment of the long awaited IPS Zero 340wh units. US retailer based in NJ (edge of NYC). Please PM for more info on purchasing. Thanks! John
  7. Hello EUC community, I've started my EUC journey three month ago with a used e-run 14'' EUC and quickly found out I need something stronger and faster. I bought an IPS ZERO (340Wh) mid of February and got it delivered mid of March. In my third ride it broke - fortunately while I was holding on to a light post. I contacted the seller and after describing the facts, I received the information (full correspondence below): Control board is broken, he will send me a new one. One day later I got an other email stating that an exchange of the control board is not necessary: I should buy the MOSFETs in my country and replace them on my own! This is not acceptable! I asked IPS for help (email to manager@ipselectricunicycle.com on the 19.4.) but received no answer yet. I bought from IPS because of their good name and expected good quality. From my todays perspective I don't see either. Could you help me getting this issue solved? Best Regards Stefan My correspondence with the seller and IPS (read from bottom to top): Dear IPS Management, I've bought a brand new IPS Zero that stopped working after the first few kilometers. Contacting the Seller a few days ago (details below) I got the confirmation, that the control board is broken and they will send a new one. Today (19.04.2016) I received the Info I shall buy and replace the MOSfets on the control board (see correspondence below). This is not acceptable. I've bought a new IPS Zero for 699$ and want to have fun driving. I don't want to start getting an expert in taking it apart and fixing electronics. I hope that you can help me solving this issue.

  8. Hi, I'm looking for advice on selecting a second EUC. My first EUC is an Airwheel X8 which I have had for just on one year now. I use it to travel approximately 2-3km twice a day from home to the train station. While I have enjoyed learning to ride the X8 and it's convenience and overall feeling of using it there are a few things that I would like to improve upon. The features I would like to improve are; being able to configure settings, having a more powerful / torquey motor & battery package (more specifically, the route to the station is up hill and in some parts reasonably steep. I am 85kg and in these sections the X8 really struggles. it feels as though it is ready to give up - it does feel at the very limit of it's ability to climb. I'm not sure how to understand motor ratings - each manufacturer seems to have a different way of describing the wattage plus I suspect the quality and battery discharge capability to feed the motor under load can make big differences, so a bigger motor rating isn't necessarily the right measure on it's own I'm guessing.) and finally the form factor (the X8 does look a little dated now). I'm happy with a top speed of 15 to 18km/h for safety reasons so outright speed is not a priority. Finally the terrain is a little bumpy with curb and guttering to contend with so a 16inch wheel is preferable but not a must. I have been looking at the following EUCs (in no particular order) as a replacement and would be grateful for any advice you may have. Solowheel Xtreme IPS Zero Ninebot One Pro (not sure if these are still available - any other Ninebot applicable?) KingSong 16A Any thoughts you may have are greatly appreciated. Apologies if I have posted in the wrong area.
  9. I have a question for all of you guys who have IPS Zero. Do you ride it with or without leg pads ? If yes, did you put some customs leg pads or the one that come with the unit with the (ugly ) IPS LOGO ? I don't know if it is because I used to ride the 9B1 and I got to be used to place my foot in a certain way on the pedal, but the first time I tried to ride the IPS Zero, I obviously understood that I wouldnt ride for more than 15 min without being in Pain. So I used some kinda shin guard.
