Gotway charger cross compatibility?


Recommended Posts

I don't know if there are any "standards" for the charger pinout, but I'd expect the chargers to be compatible at least across the same manufacturers' models (as long as the voltage is the same). To be on the safe side, I'd still measure that the polarity of the pins matches between the chargers with a multimeter... Do Gotway BMSs have reverse polarity protection?

I used an old 4A Gotway-charger (67V) with my Firewheel on occasion, at least there the pinout was the same, but maybe things have changed.

As someone who owns multiple 84v and 67v models, the chargers are identical for each voltage type wheel. And the 67v KingSong chargers also work fine with the Gotway wheels (and vice versa). Even my cheapo generic wheel shares the same 67v charger type. So I have closet full of chargers that I reach into and grab whatever my hand touches and plug it in.

I'm the other way Marty, 
I have 2 Gotways and 2 Ninebots - all with different chargers. 

Plus I have one 4 pin Gotway fast charger.... Making 5 chargers in total.

Thats one big mess of chargers.... I guess I can fix it by getting an ACM and a Monster, then off loading the Ninebots and the MSuper 820. 
Sounds expensive.... Think I'll just stick with the multi-charger option.

Specifically I have three 67v chargers (one of which is a fast charger) which are all interchangeable with my Gotway and KingSong and Generic 67v wheels. And then I have two 84v chargers for my ACM & Monster which are obviously compatible. So all I have to worry (an exaggerated word in this case) is am I grabbing a 3-pin or 4-pin charger. 

It's interesting that your 2 Ninebots have incompatible chargers, or did I misread what you wrote?

That is right - but one is a mini pro - so I guess that explains it.

Ah, I see.

Now that Gotway is making electric skateboards I wonder if they are sticking with their existing chargers or doing something different like Ninebot did.

Ninebot Mini's are 63V and GX12-4 pin. (only Ninebot uses 63V AFAIK, across their One & Mini line)

With the LEMO + GX12-4 pin Charge Doctor V2 (33.50 € version), you can swap chargers between your C+ and MiniPro.

Yes, all are 84V and GX16-3 pin connectors.

Hello, could you please help me to tell what is the diameter of the connector tip for Gotway 67.2V, 84V and 100.8V chargers. Is it all the same 16 mm or some models are 12.5 mm diameter. I saw that these models have dofferent amount of pins (3, 4 or 5), but I couldnt figure out about the diameter of connector head.

Dear Marty, unfortunately not. I own a V5F the 1.5A charger lenovo connector. I received my KS16X yesterday. Same charger same connector. Impossible to read the voltage on any of them when not on load. I wanted to use the inmotion charger un parallel with the ks one. I feared :) so I tried to charge the V5F with the KS charger...nothing happens. I noticed that on the inmotion charger when not connected to the wheel, there is a small voltage (1 to 4 volts) between the central pin and the mass. I'm afraid to plug the V5 charger to the KS. Both are 84 volt in theory. and exactly the same boxes.
