Off grid charging/away from home
Here's how I charge my Onewheel:
Thanks for the video.
What cable adapter do you use to plug into OW?
Never mind. Saw the other video.
You use the OW charger.
Please post a link to this doohickey.
I like the previous one and it's selling for $99 on Amazon.
But it won't work with a 24v LiFe pack I have for my electric bike.
I used that pack with my Hyperion charger for RC helis 6s packs and got many charges.
I probably could pull off 3 OW charges if I could find something that'll work with it.
I think it's 15AH,
I think this might work with my LiFe pack 24V
Why convert DC to AC then back to DC? there's inefficiencies with both conversion losing power and generating unnecessary heat. you also have to carry an extra charger around.
use a DC-DC booster up converter to convert 12/24/36v to 58.4v/2A and directly charge the onewheel. don't have to carry around the charger. The onehweel's battery (as much other battery systems that uses any sort of lithium technology) contains a BMS (Battery management system) which controls the charging and balancing of individual cells. A good quality DC-DC booster upconverter does the same thing as the charger: CC/CV (Constant Current/Constant Voltage charging). It supplies a constant Constant Current (CC) to the battery until the voltage reaches near 58.4v at which time it switches to Constant Voltage to finish off the charge.
Thanks for the heads up.
Good thing I didn't order it.
I remember seeing that thread about it and gonna look into it further.
@sonny123 It aint cheap.. :)
I get about 2 charges for 7lbs...
Thanks. It's a good thing to have for other usages as well.
26AH. I guess my 15AH lifepo4 pack would give me a little more than a charge.
Still exploring different ways of on the go charging.
@parrothd do you carry it in your bag or something? like is it bulky ive seen this posted and was considering it but i like to travel light
@Dark_Knight It actually fits into a small backpack, but probably not something you want to carry with while off road trail riding or aggressive riding. I'd bring it with and leave it somewhere and return for charges. I commute daily with my laptop/backpack so I'm used to riding with extra gear. I plan to use it more this summer on the bike paths, riding for 7 miles, charge and eat then head back.. :)
