@stinkyface ok will try 24 hr charge. Thanks.
Options? How do you extend battery life?
Just bought one of those blue 36V 4.4ah Lithium batteries from eBay.
I don’t see how it connects to the OW or how to charge it before I connect it. I figured this was used to charge the battery when I didn’t have an outlet to use like if I was out in the woods. Can anybody help me?
@MountainGoat so when you plugged in charge cable your lights were on? That happening to me. They won’t turn off.. I’d like to try your 48 hr charge but maybe I’ll have light issues also if I leave it on that long?
Still cant turn it on unless it’s plugged in
Did the 72 hr charge. Rode it until 20% about and had similar thing where power dropped sharply after that... charged it again and it read 100% charge but wouldn’t turn on. Now it won’t start up at all or show up in the app — which is completely a new situation. Any help greatly appreciated. Thanks
Ps. It will turn on if I have it plugged in. Riding is obviously a problem having it plugged into the wall however
Rode about 2 miles and had around 45% charge and turned it off...then would turn on but it wouldn’t engage and vacillated in app between 1% and 100% charged. Ended up charging it and power button indicated so but the app didn’t. Really weird. Only 290 miles on it. Maybe I’m not draining the battery enough? Something worse? Feel unsettled. Although...Finally have it at 82% and seems to agree with what it should be about at right now.
Just charged it again today and again it wouldn’t engage but then 2nd try it did. I was apprehensive but rode to try to completely wind down the battery careful to not stop as I didn’t want to enter the condition again of it not starting. I rode until 15% and then it behaved as if there was nothing left as in I couldn’t brake any longer and then it completely gave out and said there was no battery left. So 15% down to nothing in a second essentially. Much better than 45% down to nothing so maybe it’s in an upswing now and something was resetting with the battery? Everything else again seems fine. It rode as it always does. I’m in Mission mode fwiw. Thanks for anyone reading this.
I’ve seen a couple kits out there but no idea about how practical it is.
I used to have an XR. Now have a OW+ which has less charge capacity as you all know. Wondering if anyone has a solution for charging it out in remote areas with a charging kit similar to what phones have. I know this is a ton more juice than a cell phone but hopeful something is out there that has been discovered?
