NInebot One Battery Quick Change mod - visual instructions

Recommended Posts

 Nice mod, but it's a little hard to tell from the photos how that works.  :wacko:  I'm guessing you press up on the bottom of the side cover to release the cover pivoting up and then out to get access to the battery?

>> See the video linked here and discussed here.

There is an embedded link ^ to the video at the top of the original post that shows the technique I use. 

The cover sits very snugly under the hold-down screws with spacer and washer, and the bottom tabs snap into place at the bottom. 

So, to remove the battery cover, use a small stubby flat-tip screwdriver to depress the tabs at the bottom and force them in slightly to release. Do one side at a time and then pull the bottom out and away. The top tabs will slide out from under the screws with nylon spacer and flange washer. Reattaching is just the reverse. Slide the the tabs at the top at an angle over the battery and wires under the flange washers, press the cover over the battery, depress the bottom of the cover slightly to get the tabs into the compartment recess, and then give the bottom of the cover a firm nudge until it snaps into position.

Ah I gotcha!  I didn't see that video link earlier.  Looks like a nice secure quick access mod!

It's one of the main reasons I haven't purchased another wheel - I have yet to find an alternative that offers a quick, user-serviceable battery replacement/upgrade, or can be modded as easily – and has all the NB1E+ advantages (low total cost of ownership, durability, parts availability, etc.).

So now, I'm pondering better thermal cooling options (the stock heatsink implementation is sloppy), and the possibility of whether I can safely 'overclock' the board with the Russian firmware mod to a P model .... B)

Here is the parts list (total cost less than $10USD):

1. 2x flat nylon washers (about $1 for 6)

2. 2x flat steel washers (about $4 for 100)

3. 1x 6" section of 5/8" self-stick corner guard (about $3 for 4-8')

4. stubby screwdriver - BYOT

See the video linked here and discussed here.

The instructions are embedded in the photos. If you have any questions or comments, just ask.
