New SoloWheel Glide Charger Overheating with Alarm or Whining

Recommended Posts

I sold a  year old Inmotion V5F which worked amazingly for 2 years /1,000 miles commuting to work and putting it in my closet.  Bought a new a SoloWheel Glide 2. 

Every time I charge, at around 75-80% the charger gets extremely hot and starts making a high-pitched noise which I assumed was an overheat alarm or could also be some type of whine.  Customer support at eWheels is claiming this is normal......  For a test I put a fan on the charger during the entire cycle to keep it cool and surprisingly no funny noises from the charger.    Has anyone else experienced this?   Is it an issue with the charger overheating, or just a funny noise?

My King Song has that same charger (wavy pattern) It gets very hot too, but no whining noise (owner excepted).  Have you tried percussive maintenance?

I have three chargers of seemingly the same type and they are all deadly silent, as far as I can tell.
