This is what the booklet of the 16X says. :huh:

Hmmm. It's been a long time since I bothered looking in the usually useless "manual" that comes with the wheel :huh:

This looks useful though. Thanks for the reminder :thumbup:

I have this picture from day 1 in my phone to see my percentage, I’m an iPhone guy and the kingsong app still shows 100% all the time, yes still.

Wonder if they get this done in the next years. :laughbounce2:

Haha exactly.
KIngsong app shows 100%.
Darknessbot assumes 84v-66v and is off by -5% at the beginning and -10% at the end.

@Mike Sacristan i think you do not feel so much difference between 1.05 and 1.07 becouse your weight is 69 kg.

In my opinion wheel behaves differentialy when rider weight 69 your situation, 82 my situatio and for biger boys 95 kg or more.

How long does it should normally take to upgrade? I've been waiting for almost 2 hours now. (Android 9 from FW 1.06)

I'm on 400mbps. KS website is slow sometimes, downloading the App took a hour last time (they must be on dialup)

There must be something wrong with your connection to China. I downloaded right now the 62MB Android App in 90 seconds.

I would be very worried to ride 1.05 as a 95kg rider. :efefa07c43:

I was passing a guy on a scooter today and I accelerated a bit. I  hit 48 kmh. I got 45 kmh speed alarm + please decelerate + soft tiltback and also 4 beeps for 88% power alarm all at the same time haha. :efefc8626c:

Upgrade my wheel from 1.05 to 1.07. Thanks God have chance roll back to 1.05. Every Kingsong promoter has to be honest and do not call "soft" acceleration when wheel just do not respond to pedal push...

Now that you're bringing up this subject, I wanted also to write something about it. :)

Meanwhile I'm not sure anymore if my 16X had a broken control board (V1.4) from the beginning, because last week I even had a lot fun in soft-mode (with new board V1.5), although I didn't get along with the old board and soft-mode at all. It felt like I was standing on an old sofa.
Of course I'm talking about the same firmware 1.0.7 on both boards.

My impression is the following:

Board 1.4  (compared to V1.5)
Soft-Mode = really to soft and useless
Medium-Mode = medium
Hard-Mode = medium/hard

Board 1.5  (compared to V1.4)
Soft-Mode = medium
Medium-Mode = hard
Hard-Mode = very hard

Just got back from a 65km ride on medium mode and it was some of the best fun I have had in a while. The 16X did half of the work for me lmao.
I think the "experient" mode (experienced / experiment?) is a bit misleading regarding the name because the elitists/narcissists in us will want to use the most "advanced" mode.

Absolutely....next time try soft-mode and let me know what you think. :efefe00999:

That exactly what I thought on the last ride. I was sick, but I really wanted to ride. So I started in hard-mode, stoped after a few kilometers, switched to medium-mode, ride....few kilometers later I stoped again in switched to soft-mode and was surprised how easy it was to glide to the next City. It was a really nice comfortable 50 km ride. :thumbup:

Not so nice was the fact that I started with 55% battery instead of planned 90% and only noticed that when I was at the goal. :facepalm:

For the first time I had not paired my mobile phone and had not informed myself about the battery status. I just wondered, that I heard so fast and often "please decelerate". :roflmao:

Nice that my wife picked me up 3 km before my home, after I had arrived at 0%. :wub:

Anyway, I couldn't complain! 26 km/h AVG with 55% capacity and 53 km range (78kg rider weight, 7°C, 27 psi). :thumbup:
