Any idea how to disable the recorded Voice on the boards?

Recommended Posts

I would like to disable the annoying lady who tells me to recharge the battery. I rode it for a solid hour with her telling me to recharge every minute or so.  Any ideas on how to turn her off?

Errr..... Just a shot in the dark as nobody has a clue what you are riding and I realise this might be a really wacky suggestion but....   Perhaps by recharging the battery! ?

That is the advice for a NiMh or NiCad battery pack being carried forward into Lithium technology thoughtlessly. Lithium packs do improve after a few cycles but not if you drain them to their limits. 

For a reliable ( rather than old wife's tale) article see battery university here: http://batteryuniversity.com/learn/article/how_to_prolong_lithium_based_batteries

Most relevant paragraph is:"Similar to a mechanical device that wears out faster with heavy use, so also does the depth of discharge (DoD) determine the cycle count. The shorter the discharge (low DoD), the longer the battery will last."

The article goes on to say: "The exception may be a periodic calibration of the fuel gauge on a smart battery or intelligent device. (See BU-701a: How to Calibrate Batteries)" If the continuous voice alert is the result of a calibration issue, I.e. The software thinks the battery is lower than it really is then that may help.

The wires from the speaker are usually on a small plug that connects to the control board so unplugging it is quite simple and easily reversible.
