Anyone have a favourite Segway Mini Pro accessory that they would be willing to recommend?

I bought a kickstand from Aubestker on Amazon. My Segway MiniPro arrived yesterday and I rode three miles but charging the MiniPro was a little awkward because it won't stand powered off. I'm adding the kickstand to it tonight with a little blue loctite to hold the bolts securely. Seems like a good first accessory. $20.99 on Amazon.

The kickstand is a good start, must make mud flaps, and add reflective tape to front and back on the battery pack, under the lights, and up on control arm...

More4mini charger gets you 5 extra miles. That's the only extra I could recommend. It charges your batteries to 5700 instead of 4700. I like that.

 

eta - oh yeah, gotta have the kickstand.

Thanks. This seems like an excellent recommendation. I never thought about it being powered off while charging and how the unit would not stand up. Great idea. 

So does adding parts like a kickstand affect the self-balancing at all?

Not the kickstand, but the handlebars make the mini want to run away :D

I've checked that if I let the stock charger do its job - charge the minipro until all 5 segments on battery display blinking and chargers LED becomes green (can take a little time), then I get battery showing ~5750 - 5770 mAh. No other tricks - 3 minipro's and consistent results all the way.

"A little time" -- would you mind being specific regarding how long it takes to get it charged all the way? Thanks

I don't have precise time measurments on that but something around 15-30 minutes. I usually let them sit on a charger for an hour or so after the green light. But sometimes I charge them before taking a ride and then I just take them off the charger right after green lignt coming up. That's when I've seen >5700mAh figures a few times when checking the app.

Which firmware are you using, Vik's?

FW 1.3.1 and BMS 1.1.3 on all three of them (didn't update to 1.4.0 yet)

Just done a full charge on one random minipro that was depleted. Waiting till all the segments were blinking on miniPro then observed that charger's led indicator began to quickly pulse red/green and after 5 to 10 minutes it went solid green. Disconnected from the charger and hooked it up to ninebot app:

PS. Changed from metric to imperial in the app now, showing 19 miles (~30,5km):

That's crazy, I've talked to several other owners who only get 4700-4800 from a regular stock Ninebot charger. I wonder if they've sent different chargers to different regions, or switched to a new design. There are other posts in here about the same thing.

19 miles = 30.57... km

Great minds think alike ;) 

The app must be rounding it up in a weird way...

Don't know about that but for a battery that is a year old it's pretty damn impressive. I don't use them as much as I have 3 of them though (and I commute on 9b1). So they are in mint condition and survived through winter months well.

I'd like to see what mAH other MiniPro users are getting as well.
