DS Posted January 8, 2016 Share Posted January 8, 2016 I just did something STUPID! Actually it was supposed to happen and I was aware, but still kind of careless this time. Because of curiosity, I got used to measure the voltage on the inlet by the pins of multicet device...I may use the wrong words, but the picture is quite explanatory. This time I accidentally touched with the pin both + and the outside metal ring which I suppose is mass (-). This produced short small spark and I heard something slightly snapped inside....and I already knew that I'm in trouble. 1. Next action I pushed the power button, the led flashed shortly, the wheel didn't powered as normal and after that the electricity shut off. 2. Again (this time extremely carefully...too late ) I measured the voltage and find out fast increasing from 30V to normal more than 60V. 3. Pushed again the power button and was back to step 1, followed by step 2 So, I managed to damage my lovely generic wheel, which performed quite well with 132Wh Samsung battery, never betrayed me so far for that month that I have it. I suppose this wheel is some kind of early Solowheel copy just with changed design. Next, I'm going to open the battery and electronic holdings to see for visible damages. I post this for the other guys to know that measuring the voltage that way is dangerous for your EUC....you just never know when your hand will shake a bit of millimeter. I would appreciate if someone have knowledge and suggestions of what I've might damaged. Best, DS Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
