I just found this forum recently… gears are already turning in my head for a DIY board (so much inspiration here!), but in the meantime I still need my Acton Blink S to work properly so I have less walking to do to work… So I’m hoping someone out there can offer advice (other than throwing my Blink in a trash compactor).
The board still works… charger works… but it’s lost a lot of torque… struggles on acceleration and up small hills that used to be no problem… Has anyone come across this problem before with any electric skateboard? I’m hoping to avoid shipping it back to Acton so they can look at it since shipping from Vancouver to Cali is expensive… I’d rather save that $ for my next project.
Battery looks like it’s LiPo? … I don’t know much though… multimeter reads almost 42v on the battery (under 41v when motor is running) but that’s probably not a good test…
Any help would be greatly appreciated… it’s so frustrating to ride when you know it should be working better.
