  1. Hello EUC Forum Members, TL;DR: Help me pick between a V5F+ and V8 for a thin tall lightweght guy commuting 5 miles each way in the hellish temperatures of FL but who may move to PNW or UK and may need 10 miles each way. I posted yesterday in the General forum about deciding between the heavily discounted Segway One S1 and the V5F+. I knew I wanted the Inmotion wheel but liked the idea of learning on the cheap Segway plus finances are stretched right now. I ended up not getting the S1 leaving me thoroughly in Inmotion territory. I'm pretty fixedd on the idea of the V5F+ but the current sale price of the V8 on ewheels puts it at a comparable price range. So once again I turn to the experience of this forum for help. About Me: 39 years old. 155lb. 6ft 1in. In other words tall and skinny. I'm into tiny living and greatly appreciate portability, compact size, light weight, quality build, longevity, simplicity and repairability in a product. Getting all these in a product would be awesome but I'm happy to sacrifice slightly on some of these desired traits for big gains in others and will pay extra for something that ticks all the boxes. I enjoy cycling and this has been my main method of commuting (Brompton H6R) but current conditions make doings so the absolute puts (see environment below). No experience on unicycles, electric or otherwise. I will be learning on this device. Environment: RIght now I live in coastal Florida. It's hot. Horribly hot...and humid. Usage can be expected in temperatures ranging from low 80's in the morning to mid 90's in the afternoon. I try to avoid being out in the Florida rain storms but if caught out then it is like raining through a wall of water at times. Storms are normally short and avoidable but torrential. I avoid deep puddles but in the storm standing water draining from the road can be a 1/4 inch deep. Terrain is flat as a pancake apart form the odd canal bridge. Florida is not forever though. In the next 12 months I expect to find myself either in the Pacific North West or England. SImilar environmentally to each other. Moderate temperatures. Rarely hot or cold. Usage from mid 40's to mid 70's. Hills are a distinct possibility but I'm not going to insist my EUC drag me up the equivalent of Everest. I'd rather walk it than burn the device out. Rain is highly likely in the places. Unavoidable due to its persistence but generally lighter in nature. Usage: Mainly commuting and errand running. Commuting right now is 5 miles each way but I'd like the optio to do a little more and I'm not sure what the commute will be when I move. The odd recreational cruise would also be desirable. Not looking to do tricks, stunts etc. Maybe some trail rides/grass etc but not looking to off road the thing. What I'm Looking For: Crazy top speed is not important to me. I've no desire to loose excessive skin, any teeth, or my life. Mid to upper teens will be more than enough I think, but I'd like to be able to set my tilt back a few MPH under the EUC limit to allow a good reserve of power for safety's sake. I want the EUC to be able to deliver if I screw up and overlean or hit an unexpected pothole, bump that requires extra power for stability. I would prefer to have a larger battery/long range. I don't expect to use it all up but would like to not have to charge at work. For longevity purposes I'd also prefer to use a charge doctor to cut off the charge at 75 to 80% capacity and only run it down to around 25%. This is because I'd like to eek as much Life from the battery as I can regarding charge cycles while retaining a usable range once it starts to age and capacity drops. I also don't want to drain lower than 25% to ensure good power delivery when needed for safety, even at the end of my day when I'm wrapping up my commute. Right now my commute would just be using the EUC. In the future it could involve buss or train so portability and size is important. Headlamp is highly desirable, tail light is desirable. I like to be seen. I have a great head mounted front and rear light unit on my bike helmet (Light and Motion Vis 360) but the more the better. I'm not going to be in the financial position to have multiple wheels so this device has to last me a few years. This is why getting it right first time round, reliability, and maintainability through self repair is important. I hope this covers what I am looking for well enough to get advice. Below are the pros of both the V5F+ and V8. I'd appreciate additional input on suitability and which you would choose having had experience with EUCs. Pro's of the V5F+ over the V8: Awesome range allowing 50% charging cycles, plenty of reserve after anticipated use and margin for degradation overt time. Lightweight. Compact size, Calf and optional ankle padding Good tail light Slightly cheaper Posts suggest this is a very well built reliable EUC (I've seen some build quality issues in posts about the V8; tire rubbing, LED's quitting, water affecting the power button) Not covered in crazy lighting Pro's of the V8 over the V5F+ More powerful motor when needed (unexpected events, carrying extra load (groceries in a pack)) Good top speed allowing room for a power reserve during unexpected events? 16" wheel (I ride a Brompton folding bicycle with 16" wheels and already feel every bump. Going smaller raises concern for stability in the face of potholes, bad sidewalks etc) I would purchase form ewheels. The V5F+ is $895 right now. I would add the $100 bundle as I want the trolley handle and cover (for protection while learning). The fast charger would be a bonus but I'd probably not use it so may sell it to recoup costs. This brings the V5F+ cost to $995 without any claw back form the sale of the fast charger! Ouch. The V8 is $999. Trolley handle is built in so no extra cost there but I would buy a cover at $49. No fast charger with the V8 so couldn't recoup anything. Total for the V8 would be $1048. Difference between the two is just $53. So. What do you think. Are my pro's valid? Any I didn't think of? Any of them invalid or just not worth being a pro? Input and opinions after you put yourself in my shoes.
  2. Originally purchased from the esteemed Jason McNeil at eWheels. Includes added Handlebar. Light in weight, nimble, and at 15.5mph it is faster than Bird, Lime-S and Spin scooters. The 500 W motor allows you to carry a maximum payload of 120 Kg (265 pounds), with manufacturer stated maximum range of 31mi. Will be packaged in original box. Located in Washington, D.C.
  3. Hello folks, The sensor button on my V5F+ stopped working. Anyone knows how to fix it or where to buy a new one? It doesn’t react to any touch anymore Thanks
  4. My InMotion V5F+ is not responding when I press the power button. Where do I begin to check it? I suspect water may have caused the issue. I was riding it yesterday in Seattle, in a stronger-than-usual rain. I did not go through any puddles, the eWheel was wearing its waterproof jacket, and I was riding it slowly and with an umbrella in my hand. I arrived to my bus stop, climbed the bus, and when I got off the bus, the eWheel was not responding when I tried to turn it on. The battery was fully charged, so that is not the problem. Any help would be hugely appreciated. Let me know if you need more information.
  5. Not sure if this is old news / has been shared here before, but this just came up in my YT suggested videos. Respect to this guy on a V5F...
  6. Hi guys, I'm Flavien 27 years old I live in Montreal for 6 months now. I'm french (BAGUETTE !!) and I'm here to broke my habits. I fell in love with wheels only some months ago and I'm still looking for new riders in Montreal. I wanted total freedom when I left France, I found it in euc. I own a InMotion V5F+ and I've got some troubles when it rains. I think I should go to InMotion forum to get more resources about it. I am currently studying the market of euc. If you could help me in filling this form that would be very appreciated https://goo.gl/forms/KUwzJYkPsFlCC8Tj2 See you soon guys and thanks in advance
