If the XR has a different chemistry, then it will also have a different charger. Can anyone confirm which chemistry they used in the XR? NMC would certainly make sense.

RE: Upgrade Onewheel Plus to an XR?
Highly unlikely. Unless FM managed to squeeze MORE LFP batteries into that small frame, they would have had to use a higher energy density battery chemistry (vs what they are using, Lithium Iron Phosphate or LFP). If they used a higher energy density battery chemistry (NMC/NCA/LCO), the average cell voltage would be higher, which means all the charge management system would be completely different.
Even if they did use a larger LFP battery, the pack would still either have a larger voltage or higher capacity. Since the motor hasn't changed, they would have used a higher capacity pack. A high capacity LFP pack would need to be squeezed into other places in the frame. The Plus probably does not have space to accommodate a larger pack. The XR might.
I seriously doubt they stuck with LFP and put exra packs in different places of the frame, they probably went with a higher energy chemistry to keep the pack on one side of the board. If they did that, then upgrading a plus to an XR would be very difficult.
Onewheel Plus XR Charge Time? Charger compatibility?
@Future-Motion, can you comment on the charge time for the Onewheel XR? The plus has a quoted charge time of 20 minutes, but a fully drained battery takes ~40 min to charge.
What about the XR? Is it still a 20 min "average" charge time, with a 40 min full charge?
Is the charger for the XR compatible with the charger for the plus?
Thank you very much!
RE: Pushback on the OW+ / Safety Limits / Top Speeds
Thank you! That is positive confirmation that there should be pushback around 16 mph. Anybody else?
My ship date was April 15. Order number 784X.
My friends ship date was 28 June. Order number 1113X.
Pushback on the OW+ / Safety Limits / Top Speeds
I get pushback at 16 mph on my OW+ in mission, it can be hard to push past this. But I can occasionally, and my max speed is about 20 mph. To me this seems like a safety feature, i'm not complaining.
My friend just got a new Onewheel +. We were both cruising together and we discovered that his board is much faster than mine. He does not get pushback at 16 MPH in mission.
I tried his board to confirm this and indeedy, I can cruise at 19 mph with no pushback on mission. I was nervous to go any faster--and very surprised.
We were playing around and he was trying to see how far he could push his board when all of a sudden he nose-dived. I was watching the whole thing. The motor just cut out and he landed hard on his forearms. He must have been going 20 MPH.
I was watching his fall, and of course, we aren’t’ going to try to duplicate that. Maybe he pushed the board too hard or something, but his board wasn’t pushing back at all. I can double/triple confirm his board is significantly faster. So, there is that very definitive difference between the boards.
And both have firmware 4001.
My questions for you guys are:
- Have you ever experienced anything like this? Have you tried another OW+ besides your own and had it push back differently, for the same digital shaping?
- What speed do you get push back, on your OW+, in mission?
Thanks guys! Looking forward to your responses.
Range on the V1 vs the V2?
Just wondering what everyone is getting on their V2. I typically get the low end of the range, 5- 6 miles. On mission and Cruz, which is weird because Cruz is slower. I get 6 miles after a full discharge and balancing, typically I get 5 miles. Or just under (4.8 or 4.9 miles).
