20 minutes to full charge?

  • Who here is getting a full charge in 20 from a battery at around 5%? It takes me 25 minutes to fully charge from 50%. Odd.

  • Takes me a good solid 35 minutes from about 5%. I've never seen 20 minutes.

  • @Bgrave same

  • I have three OneWheels and they charge full in 20

  • @groovyruvy yeah same. 40 mins for a full charge

  • Wonder why such the discrepancy. @ryan1Auburn what battery so you have in yours?

  • 240v here. Does not take 20min. Rather 40.

  • Me too around 40 min !

  • I've seen mine take over 20 from early on. Havnt bothered to keep track of it tho. Seems always charged within 40 at most

  • You know what would solve this problem? SWAPPABLE BATTERIES for V2. @Future-Motion

  • Never 20 always took 30 minutes. I always wondered why they advertise 20. From battery level 30 it takes a solid 30 minutes.

  • Takes 20 min to charge mine from death. Once the light is green I'll give it an extra 2 minutes then unplug

  • Could people please tell if you are on 110v or 220v.
    Might be a correlation between these.

  • @BadWolf 110v (United States)

  • I charge in 20 minutes. 110 VAC

  • Has someone tried to monitor the battery status while charging? Does 5-90 go faster per % than say 90-100, or 95-100?
    I can't try it, because I can't get battery status from my board.

  • For a full charge, I have never seen the board finish in 20 minutes. It's always been 30-40 minutes consistently. I have no idea where they got their 20 min charge from, but I'd sure love to have that. LOL

  • Mine takes the same amount of time no matter the battery level.. roughly 20 mins

  • I am around the 30 minute mark pretty consistently. Seems like the battery charges like some cell phones where from 0% to 80% it seems to charge a lot faster than the last 20%. Maybe it has something to do with balancing the cells. I wish I could use one of my nice chargers that I use to charge rc batteries where I can put it into balance charge where it shows every individual cell and charges and decharges? "If that is a word" every individual cell as needed until they are all perfect.

  • @ahxe45 The OWheelBuddy and POnewheel apps both show the charge in each cell.

  • @thegreck they do show the individual cells voltage but I can't balance charge the board like you can with rc batteries which if you have ever dealt with them is critical to the overall health and performance of the batteries. I can also put my Lipo charger into storage mode where if I know that I am not going to use them for a while it charges them to a safe storage level where they will not be damaged. I could see this being useful for people who travel a lot and their board may be inactive for a while. Even though they say the lifepo batteries are not the same as Lipo I would still think the basic care and maintenance would need to be used for them.
