RE: What do you think the third gen OneWheel will be like?
All I want is more power...V2 is no slouch but can struggle on some hills. I live in SF so we got a lot of them
RE: Multi-board owner!
I rock two V2's and a V1, I left one V2 completely stock and modified the other for pure off road riding. But whats weird is I always seem to grab the V1 when I wanna shred, something about the rawness and the less polished feel that I love about the V1. Also you can hear when the motor is gonna run out of power because it's much louder
RE: Help understanding "overcharge"
The Onewheel uses a the Constant Current/Constant Voltage charge technique (CCCV) its pretty common for quick charging. So what happens is when you plug into the board the charger will start giving max current which is 3.5A on this charger. Then at 80% charge the board BMS will start dropping current while maintaining 58V and finish the charge. At this point your trickle charging and the BMS won't allow the board to go above 58.4v. LiFePO4 battery chemistry is very resilient to overcharge and can safely be overcharged to 4.2v per cell. I would not worry about over current at all when it comes to damaging. However the BMS is another story and can shut down the board if it thinks it's overcharging. I'm guessing they play it safe and shut it down way earlier than necessary. Regenerative braking is just a by product of the way the Onewheel is designed. The energy has to go somewhere and it makes it's way back to the battery.
RE: Battery & charging issues
Have you run out the battery on the bench? What's your cell voltage when plugged in overnight? Does the light on the ultra charger turn green when done? Can you post a pic of your cell voltages? Were looking for 3.60v to 3.64v per cell on a full charge. Total voltage should be 58.4v or a little more. A dead battery is about 44v. Also when your riding watch the "Usage" meter and see if it coincides with your battery meter.
RE: Broken/Loose connection to headlight
So I've found that the connection becomes loose because there is a ferrite ring attached to the LED power wire. The ferrite ring bounces around inside the control module which is in the nose of the board and eventually pulls the plug out. You have to disassemble the nose of the board and pull the module, crack that open and fix the plug. There are warranty void stickers on the module. I ignored those, have never had a problem getting my board repaired at the factory. Here is the link to my post
RE: Over regeneration error - battery still at 100% after 11% usage
ITS FIXED! So charge current+time is the factor when it comes to the battery meter being off. My scenerio:
-Ran battery down to 30%
-Used solar charger+lipo to charge at 2.5A
-Charge to 97%
-Battery dies at 16%
-charge with ultra charger to 100%
-battery stays at 100% till usage drops below 25%
-running battery to dry and then charging with ultra charger does not solve problem
-ran battery to dead and then charged all the way up with solar charger with Lipo at 2.5A
-becaue of the slower charge rate and longer time some how the battery meter and BMS are back in sync and percentage decreases perfectly
