EUC World - Charging control in upcoming 2.4 release

EUC.world's charging control (when set to 100% SOC) does not use the EUC-reported voltage to stop the charging. Instead, it stops charging an hour after the HS110-reported power falls below 30 Watts.

That same info can be retrieved on KS wheels from the wheel itself, without the need of a HS110. KS S18, in contrast with say niinebots c.e.p, reports amperage when charging, so if a 30Watts cuttoff limit is what is needed, it can be done with no smart plug, even a 5USD sonoff will do. 

p.s.
We talk about batteries and bms's, I even criticize kingsong a bit, I can't help it, but it I also find this detail interesting: :)

Today I want to announce a feature that was to be added to EUC World a long time ago, but in the meantime there were other features with a higher priority. Winter means less opportunities for me to ri

I agree, charging to 80% or 90 or even 95% is very good for prolonging battery life, only if it it done by the bms, like the ninebots do. If the charge is stopped before the balancing stage, the pack

Alright guys. I have been alloved to give you some news.  We are in the very end of beta testing and translations of the upcoming version 2.4 of EUC.WORLD.  There are a "little" new design t

I would like more control in setting percentage limit - a slider (like the speed limit option)

I asked this because I wanted limit to 95%. But after a fast research I am ok with 90%

Battery life > Degradation

New data has shown that exposure to heat and the use of fast charging promote the degradation of Li-ion batteries more than age and actual use. Charging Li-ion batteries beyond 80% can drastically accelerate battery degradation.

Thank you for the info! You saved my battery. 

I was about to always do 90% charging, with the best intentions in mind.

There should be a warning in app when you open the Limit by Percentage option, for newbies like me.

P.S. For those who don't understand why no balancing is bad: Video1, Video2

About "Disable battery balancing" option - so EUC.World has complete control over charging/BMS (not only monitoring and plug on/off)? 

If so, should I trust it my wheel internal settings and possibly leaving them in some invalid/harmful state?

Or on "Disable balancing" it just turns off the plug when charging power starts to drop (beginning of balancing phase)?

At the moment I change to 100% and don't disable balancing. So far it looks good (KS18L) screenshot:

No.

Exactly this is all EUC World (can do) does!

With disable balancing EUC World stops once power dissipation dropped to ~30W.

With balance ng enabled it charges one hour more.

So with both variants "normal" balancing happens. With balancing disabled it could correspond a bit more with the manufactures recommendations for charge cut off current.
