Dualtron H29e vs Dualtron II EX

Recommended Posts

Hi,

I am a happy owner of a Speedway mini 4 pro but I am looking into getting a more powerful machine like the Dualtron II. My maximum budget is about ~$2200.

When looking at where to buy online, these two fits all the checkboxes, and they also look very similar:

2018 New Dualtron Scooter Motor 60V18AH 1052Wh Most Powerful Electric Scooter H29e -  from alibaba. Link here.

vs

NEW: Dualtron II EX 1200Wh/2x 800W (1600W) Motors - from ewheels.com. Link here.

The main difference I see is 1200Wh/2x 800W vs 1052wh 2 * 6000W, but other than that, they look exactly the same to me. Are they?

Any info that can help me understand the Dualtron product offering landscape is welcome :)

H29E is the first generation Dualtron, the main drawback is that they're fitted with the Chinese branded battery cells. Probabilistic cell failure is 1:1000 vs. <1:20,000 with the LG/Panasonic cell, with nearly 100 cells, this represents a 10% annualized pack failure rate. 

I would wait for the Dualtron Spider, this is the holy grail of eScooters: 20kg, dual-motor, 1kWh Panasonic battery, 35-40MPH, ABS disc brakes, 10" tubeless tires, carbon fibre frame, fingerprint scanner. Price will be around $2,500.

First arrivals should be around mid-December

Thanks for pointing out the battery quality and the Spider! The spider definitely sounds like the holy grail. But at the same time, if it goes over $2500, might be too expensive for me.

Do you know who / where it is going to be sold? Can we pre-order it somewhere?

We have a supply on order now, holding back on posting to the ewheels.com site, because it's going to make nearly every other model obsolete overnight :). Can you send an email to sales@ewheels.com & we can work out a deposit.

Aw Aric... too bad you can't find another $800. I have a brand new Dualtron Ultra, unridden, that I'm putting up on Craig's list for $3k this week. I ended up buying a Thunder while waiting for the Ultra to ship from SK, and couldn't wait.

it's very tempting but I think it is too big of a machine for my needs. I need to commute 8 miles + 1 mile twice a day, and put it in a train (amtrak). Plus I use it around in Berkeley from my place to coffee shops (1 ~ 2 miles).

The spider or Dualtron 2 looks like a better fit. I would buy the ultra for $2500 though :p

I just did, when can I expect to hear back?

@Jason McNeil is the Spider still a worthy purchase considering certain specs have changed
