    KS18L Range Test - 200 lbs rider

    KS18L Range Test of my brand new Kingsong KS18L taking it to work and back. Did I make the trip? This is a real-life range test, with a 200 lbs rider, windy conditions in 20C.

    KS18L vs GW Tesla

    Hey guys, Wondering if some of you who have ridden both the 18L and the Tesla can chime in. I'm coming from the KS16B, and I outgrew it speed-wise about a year ago but have been waiting for the 18L. I love pretty much everything about the 18L from what people are saying, but in looking at the Tesla, I'm wondering if that extra 7mph in top speed (from 30mph to 37mph) will be something that bugs me a few months after getting an 18L. I know with my KS16B, the ~19 mph max speed felt pretty slow within a few months of riding in bike lanes and streets, and if I had had the option of getting something faster (which didn't really exist at the time), I would have wanted that. Those of you guys riding the 18L, are you pushing against the 30mph limit and wishing you had the extra 5-7mph of something like a Tesla? And are 30mph / 37mph speeds relatively comfortable cruising speeds for each? Or is it too crazy cruising at ~37mph on a 16" wheel? My 16B isn't terribly unstable, but it also doesn't go 30+ mph. Last thing -- i've heard somewhere of something called the "gotway glide" which is supposed to be some ethereal quality that GW EUCs have that make them really smooth or something. Does this apply to the Tesla? And is it noticeably absent from the KS18L? Thanks in advance.

    KIngsong KS18L CHARGER

    KingSong KS18L owners in the USA looking for a extra charger can get them here on ebay. I had several people contacting my about buying an extra charger so they could make use of their dual charging ports but I have been too busy and was only able to get to a couple of you. KS18L specific chargers can be purchased on eBay or at http://www.tec-toyz.com http://rover.ebay.com/rover/1/711-53200-19255-0/1?icep_ff3=2&pub=5575378759&campid=5338273189&customid=&icep_item=323471539614&ipn=psmain&icep_vectorid=229466&kwid=902099&mtid=824&kw=lg&toolid=11111
  4. After seeing Ian's (SpeedyFeet.com) range test of the KS18L I was somewhat alarmed. He documented a large disparity between the King Song's app range and Map My Ride. I got a sinking feeling in my stomach that my "App" claimed 30 mile ride with 38% battery left was a total fallacy. My riding weight is 240 lbs at 6' 4+". That type of performance would have been spectacular for one KW battery. I checked my work commute distance by gps, motorcycle trip meter and Goggle Maps. They all had within .1 of mile at ~ 8.2 miles each way for a total of 16.4 miles. The KS app had the distance at 20 miles. Upon getting an accepting a offer for a group ride, I decided I would use that opportunity to discover my true range. The route was 29.2 miles (it was expended by 4.5 miles) per Goggle Maps. Since it was all bicycle trial (famous and measured) I "assumed" the number to be very accurate. I rode 3 miles (actual) to a train. The app said 3.8 miles. I took a 18 minute train ride to the meetup point. The ride from that point was 25 miles per my fellow rider's Darkbot app. I couldn't precisely map a approximately 4.5 portion where we did a big loop around Valley Forge National Park, but 4.5 per Darkbot seemed about right. The KS app had 30+ miles. I had planned on taking the train back to Philly, but decided to ride back to determine what the KS18:'s maximum range was with me on it. I also wanted to see the effect of Speed dropping as the battery emptied. I made it home with 7% battery crawling at 4-5 mph. The total distance was 32.9 miles. The KS app had me at 41 miles+. The good news is I a never notice a speed reduction until after 20%. There were some, I am sure, but I didn't need to go more than 18-22 mph on crowded bile trails. Between 20% and 10% it would do Ninebot E+ speeds 10-13 mph max. Below 10% it got real ugly lol. I would like to do 100 miles in a day, but I need a little more battery even with a fast charger. I heard a KS18XL might be coming out, but I can't justify buying it. A conversion/update kit, however, would be welcomed. The above it is just the experience of a 240 lb rider on a mostly flat route. YMMV. Enjoy your KS18L!
  5. @US69 Can you forward an idea for optional aftermarket items to suggest for Kingsong? They kind of did this with extra charger port, I thinking expanding the concept. Yesterday I think Jason posted that bigger pedals are in the works as an option. Great idea, I my book could be pedals surface options too. I think a formfitted (rain)cover could be a fantastic optional, for a commuter to improve weather resistance of the wheel and for people who want to avoid scratching their wheel. It could be made with some refective and foamy material similar to how the Inmotion have done for their wheels. And I still don't get why wheel makers don't make foam option like you had for ninebot s1 (I don't recall model right maybe, as I only saw pictures of this, but never owned a ninebot). In most cases manufactures tend to have optionals to improve profit thinking of other type of product, e.g. cars.

    KS18L and MSuper X

    Got my KS18L yesterday and MSuper X last week, first time Gotway and Kingsong wheel owner and my previous wheels are Ninebot A1 and InMotion V8, a few observations - KS18L is more comfortable to ride, may due to higher position of padding Both Gotway and Kingsong Apps are not working, either crash on my 3 Android phones or can't connect to wheel Wheellog can connect to MSuper X The auto motor shutoff of KS18L is not working as robust as InMotion, it turned-on twice on my first up stair walking I like the trolley handle of KS18L, it takes more effort to maintain balance on MSuper X trolley handle Overall, they both are great wheel, more stable, stronger motor and longer range then my A1 and V8 Edit 6/13 - Both Apps can connect to wheel now. The trick is if your Bluetooth is always on, you may need to turn off then turn on to make the app find your wheel. Specification compare table -

    KS18L latest firmware

    I though it might be useful to have place to check what is latest firmware version. I just got version 1.09 updated as I post this, the update completed successfully. Edit: @US69poster this change log. V 1.09: 1. Added multi-RGB pattern, mode 1 is automotic mode2. Self-checking the match of firmware version and series number, if not match, the wheel will loose balanceV1.081. Automatic sensor calibration2. Avoid wheel freeze issue. 
  8. My riding weight has been between 235-240 lbs. I purchased 9B1E+ for local trips and for use with public transit. It handled my weight well and I never had any problems including using the "flimsy" trolley. I "thought" I had no need for hi -speed, but wanted a little more speed and range so I could commute to work without using Public transit. I looked at the INmotion Glide 3 (V8), but Jason thought it would only be a marginal upgrade for my size. I watched the various, umh, "discussions" on the forum regarding speed, big batteries, range, etc. I watched with amazement (but with what I thought was with no interest to me) the videos of riders going 20, 25, 30+ mph. I thought I would be perfectly happy with a non-tilt-back 16 mph. Perhaps I would dare to go 18 mph on occasion. If I had not gotten an 18 inch wheel maybe that reality would have come true. However, I purchased a KS18L and discovered what all the talk about smooth, stable riding was about. The horrible streets and sidewalks which struck fear in me on the E+ suddenly became annoying bumps at best. I found myself rushing to get the miles in to unlock the 50 kmh speed. What had happened to me? This was insane. No one should go over 16-18 mph on these machines. I have set my one alarm to 40 kmh and tilt-back at 45 mph .. but why would i have them so high? What are the new wheels doing to us? My rational mind knows the danger of a cut-off at those speeds! I was following some bikers today (while doing a 30 mile ride) and was cruising at 24 mph thinking I was at best doing 20 mph (no alarm until 25 mph). I need a watch or wrist mountable gps to track my speed.! We may argu .. discuss the pros and cons of our chosen new generation wheels, but one thing they all have in common - "They all float .. ". "Danger Will Robinson".

    KS18L Firmware v1.09

    Just updated to v1.09 using Android app 1.50. Trolley sensors calibration is now gone, and seems to be automatic. No other changes noticed. This version is suppose to fix also the firmware freeze issue in trolley mode.

    KS18L Firmware 1.07

    Hi, Just did update from v1.06 to v1.07 using king song app v1.50 on Android. Worked as a charm ! Low speed motor off detection seems to work better now. Also battery LED indicator seems to showing real status. Moreover in seems that low battery voltage speed was adjusted... Thanks King Song for frequent updates, looks like you really listen to your customers.
  11. My KS18L died today, here is how and what happened: - Firmware version 1.0.7, Battery 90%, Mode Beginner, Speed Max 25Km/H - Battery was 100% and I drive for about 8km, temperature outside was around 33°C. - After driving, I took the wheel in trolley mode, as I was shopping, and walk with it for about 15 minutes inside a shop with aircon. - After 15 minutes walk, the wheel suddenly tremble once and then switch off. At last that was what I was thinking because there was no lights, on/off button has no effect etc... - I noticed that the wheel was becoming more and more warm, despite give no sign of life... Also the wheel was very hard to turn... I think it's a motherboard issue... Probably Mosfets died and made a short circuit... I decided to open the wheel and disconnect the battery cable as it was becoming more and more warm and I was worrying that it can take fire... I've noticed that motor cable was very hot too, so it just confirms to me that there mosfets died in a "short circuit" mode... Also the fan was running and there was a green light switched on on the motherboard... No other signs of life... No bluetooth... etc... Hope this kind of details can help King Song to make a fix for it. If there are any questions, please feel free to ask.
  12. Hello forum! I can get Inmotion V10F from china seller for 1400USD and KingSong 18L for 1550USD. I am gonna commute DAILY to school and back (15km+15km)... It is not an off-road trip...it is mostly a car road or road for bicycles. It is only one hill...so mostly it is plane road. Sometimes I will ride in rain and some snow too... And sometimes I will use a BUS, when there will be a storm or just some bad bad weather... What wheel, do you think, will get the job done better? Thank you for your replies and have a nice day! and Im sorry for my english xd

    Tuning front light KS18L

    Hello Everybody, I just received my new KS18L and am facing an annoying problem, I find myself comfortable in riding with the front of the wheel pretty high, in order to have my feet pointing up somehow, the problem is that my front light is pointing so high that I'm annoying everybody because I'm really illuminating their eyes. Do you have any suggestion on how I can solve this problem? Is there a way to tune the light as in the cars? Thanks a lot
