Jeffrey Scott Will Posted March 1, 2016 Share Posted March 1, 2016 I've been an owner of the KS 14c (500w) for the better part of a year now, and I'm happy to report that through *daily* rides / commuting, I haven't had any mechanical issues. Still running like a champ! A few months back, however, I noticed that it seemed to be getting drastically less voltage per charge, but I chalked it up to colder winter weather. But then I saw that I wasn't actually getting a full charge even when showing a green light on the charger. Many times it would not be charged fully and the battery was only ~75% charged. I was beginning to think that my daily hill climb/descent had taken it's toll on my battery, but then I remembered that people have warned in the past that these chargers are generally shit and do no last long.. so I ordered another one. And now it's like a brand new wheel again! I had forgotten what it's like to ride on a full charge. I'm on my 4th charger now between the two wheels I own! So before you panic that your battery seems to be weakening, try a new charger. They don't last long. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
