I could finally open the box (damaging it) and there was indeed a loose capacitor (a big one :550uF) that I soldered back with no luck.
This Fuyuang charger was sent to me with my Kickstarter V1.

RE: FRANCE OneWheel Riders
Apriori un remplacement de la batterie LFP par une NMC, donc 2 fois plus d'énergie massique et un poil moins de puissance (sûrement limitée par le moteur de toute façon).
Les tensions d'utilisations sont légèrement différentes mais proches, peut être qu'il sera possible d'upgrader nos boards en remplaçant le pack et le chargeur ? (si quelqu'un s'y connait je doute que FM propose de canibaliser ses ventes :-)
RE: Headphone Sunglasses
No but sometimes i use a mini bluetooth earbud to get google nav from my Phone when I ride:
Cyborg feeling but it works
Has anyone got fat driving a OW ?
This is a question for OW addicts.
With a little over 700 km on my board, I notice:
- most of it (let's say 50%) actually replaced taxi or public transportation bills, which is great because it helps OW to pay for itself, in a green and fun way.
- for about 30% it made me move when I would have stayed home, which is fantastic !
- and for the remaining 20% i think it might have replaced some walking activity... which is questioning.
I got stopped in Washington DC by a medical guy who told me that OW must be an excellent fitness activity, as opposed to segway, because all parts of your body are moving.
But I walk less, rarely push the stroller without the OW.
The only new effort seems to carry the OW over stairs or when out of batteries :)
So far, beside some bruises, i am not aware of body transformation.
How about you ?
RE: Traveling with Onewheel. There's hope.
I landed in DC and reassembled the Onewheel in few minutes.
It is such a fun productive and social tool to travel with - It opens a city like nothing !
Few hours before boarding (Paris -> DC with a stop in Reykjavik) Icelandair emailed me that the OW will be accepted without its battery, but the battery will be refused.
I then had a nice conversation with Future Motion support, they proposed me to send it for a repair in case my battery was confiscated (and charge me for tuning + missing part).
So i took my chance and put the battery pack (not the battery module, too big and dirty) in a plastic bag as a carry on. It is a huge battery pack, I wasnt sure what to say if i was asked. But it was scanned without any question.
Now I cross my finger it wont be confiscated on my way back !
ps: to remove and extract the battery, you actually ends up only a few screws away from unmounting everyting. unmounting everything makes it easier to pack, and probably raises less security and custom questions. but i agree it is not a necessity.
