Car charging Amazon Links



  • I'm sure this topic has been covered in the past but is there a recommended car charger that either plugs into the cigarette lighter or the car battery? Amazon links would be appreciated.

    Thanks!



  • @BriFi This: http://amzn.to/2bxImSN

    That one hooks up to a car battery (a lot of discussions on this forum about the fact that the cigarette lighter isn't going to give you enough current to charge a OW very quickly).

    And if you have a big outing like a camping trip, where you won't have access to an outlet for a few days, you can bring one of these with you to get multiple charges without draining your car's battery (uses the same type of LiFePO batteries as the Onewheel): http://amzn.to/2c430Xz



  • @thegreck awesome, thanks. Do you know if using this hooked up to a car battery charges the OW in 20 minutes like when plugging into a wall?



  • @thegreck some have also recommended the ATOTO Ultra Power Source for portable power /www.amazon.com/dp/B01AFLNSI4/ref=cm_sw_r_cp_api_FrHNxbFZ4H0FA, any input?



  • @BriFi I would think it's pretty close, but someone who's tried it can hopefully jump in and let us know. I'd like to get that setup for myself at some point.

    @groovyruvy
    Yes, currently that seems to be the best option for a portable charger that you can actually throw in a backpack and ride with it. I don't have one, but several people have them and say you can get 1.5 charges out of it. Not bad! That means if you start out fully charged, you can theoretically ride 18 miles before you have to find an outlet. [EDIT: Make that 15 miles. Bad math.]

    But I'm waiting to see what @SeeTheInvisible comes up with, as he might be developing a portable charger specifically made for the Onewheel.



  • @thegreck Great info. I would like this setup in the future as well. With Battery tech improving like what is seen with Tesla. The range and our options can only get better over time.



  • Yep, this is the one I use, takes the same amount of time your house AC would take. FYI - It will bring your car battery's standing voltage down a bit unless you keep your car idling.
