Hunka Hunka Burning Love Posted October 18, 2015 Share Posted October 18, 2015 After looking at the various wheels out there, I wonder why they don't incorporate an easily swappable battery pack that you can unlock, remove, and clip a new pack in. Thinking of my various digital camera batteries, I'd hate running out of juice during a holiday somewhere so I have several backup batteries on hand. With many of these EUC's, it looks like your best friend is a powered screwdriver to take a bazillion screws off just to take out a battery. A modular shell that can house a battery pack would make life a lot easier. The outside of the shell would then become a part of the outer housing. One could even put a rubber gasket around the edges to seal the works in to make it waterproof. That way one could carry around some rechargeable packs in a backpack to swap over long trips.Another suggestion for EUC designs is to make some sort of standardized front/back universal attachment to clip on Go-Pros, headlights, brake lights, luggage boxes, etc. Even one that swivels out of the housing and can be snapped back into place would be handy. A couple of simple brackets or attachment grips would help people avoid the need to double stick tape things on. For those who need a splash guard for the back they could then have something to clip onto. After watching a few Gotway Mten videos where a guy has taken a couple of belts to attach some cut up pool noodles onto for cushioning - why don't they make a easily replaceable side cushion for users rather than needing all that home made stuff? I've had to cut pieces of foam carpet underlay and tape it ghetto style around my EUC to save my shins and also to protect the EUC. A simple slide on cushion attachment that clips on or off depending on what the rider wants would make for a cleaner look.I wonder if placing some anti-fatigue mat material over the aluminum pedals would make them a little more cushioned for longer trips. Maybe someone can make some EUC accessories that clip on and are removable.http://www.uline.ca/BL_1751/Anti-Fatigue-MatsHow about making the EUC completely waterproof? If the motor is pretty well sealed up, it's just the electronics, battery, and buttons that need waterproofing. These could be housed in waterproof compartments allowing the EUC to be completely submersible in water up to a point.If anyone else has any suggestions or items on a "wish list" please add to the list!
