Re: Battery won’t charge.

It must surely be a coincidence that just two days ago, everything was fine and then you replaced both of the output connectors on the main battery leads, and then, immediately after that, the charging problem suddenly manifests itself. My guess would be that the two wires touched at some point and ...

Re: Intermittent no power problem

You did not answer the question.

Does you bike charge thru the discharge leads or do you use a separate charging port?

Re: Intermittent no power problem

I find myself wondering if this bike charges thru the discharge leads, and if answering the question, posed early on, about if the problem only occurs after a charge, which the OP dismissed as it "couldn't possibly be part of the problem", would have saved a LOT of totally unnecessary, was...

Went thru the first 6-8 questions. You are producing this on behalf of an institution of higher learning, within the United States? You fail completely to even describe what an e-scooter IS.

Re: If you had the chance to start endless sphere all over again, what would you change?

First, I would make a mandatory rule that anyone who is a vendor or who works for a vendor must identify themselves as such. Commercial products are part of the hobby, that means many have a profit motive, and THAT means many serious issues. As for the "like" system, let me give you an exa...

You are speaking to a "vendor" who has never mentioned the name of his shop, never advertised a product for sale, never posted in the vendor section, and discusses and promotes ONLY products sold by Eric Hicks, owner of Luna. Almost certainly one of Eric's alter egos. He used to have many,...

Re: Brainpower controller and s866 display ,problems

For future readers trying to solve a similar problem, it would be VERY important to note that your bike was originally a 24V system which you are upgrading to 48V. See, what that would almost certainly mean is that the headlight is a 24V unit and some smart guy would be able to tell you that it abso...

Almost every US jurisdiction has a similar 90-day, abandoned property law.
