My remote won’t charge, the lights won’t come on unless I switch the remote on when plugged in. I think it’s the battery. I opened it up and it looks swollen . Can you buy them or is it better to just get a new remote ? It’s the two speed wowgo style remote.
Did you check the solder joints for the battery to the circuit board? I had the same issue.
Thanks I will check again just in case I missed something like that.
your battery looks puffy. Batteries shouldn’t look puffy. Puffy battery = no bueno
Not sure about the exact size of your’s so double check to make sure. These battery are very common and easy to find. No need to buy a new remote.
That’s what I thought, puffy battery no goody .
Can’t quite make out what the details are without messing with that sticky pad, …( risky poppin)
What can cause a remote battery to puff up ? Over charging ? Cold weather ?
most likely the insulators in there failed
Do you think this would be ok ?
Sorted, bought one from an RC shop, fitted and now lights up, connected and I am riding my hoard with a smile once more.
