I tried searching the forum threads and didn’t come across problems similar to mine. I hope this is not a repost. And thank you in advance.
Ride 1Up Carbon Pro
230Wh LiPo, 36v, 6.4ah
Battery brand (not sure)
10s configuration with 2 cells looking “puffy”
Cell are 100mm x 45mm x 10mm per cell (L/W/D)
BMS brand (not sure)
Board power up and charges but can not be ridden for more than 50ft before cutting out. No issues with remote, BMS, or hub motors. I’m thinking it’s the two puffy cells that is causing this.
Ride 1Up is no longer selling boards (just e-bikes now) and services are no longer being provided for boards that are out-of-warranty. Their support team have been overall helpful but are unable to provide any more details on battery specs and replacement recommendation.
I have no electrical or battery repair or e-board DIY experience. I have a multimeter and a basic soldering kit.
Replace the whole battery and BMS
Remove the 2 puffy cells and replace with new ones >> how? > where and what do I look for in my search? any watch outs on voltage and discharge?
Just remove 2 puffy cells and using it at a reduced mileage and performance? Is that possible and safe?
L:45.5mm W:11.5mm (including solder and wires) D:10mm

I really enjoy this board when it was working for 7-months in 2019. It’s comfortable for a stiff deck, carves well, hits 23mph for my weight (200lb), low battery sag, easy to carry at 13lbs, and looks stealthy. So, hoping to get this back online with the help of the community.
