So this is a bummer. I rode a couple days ago and got the battery down to about 20%. It sat, turned off, in my office for a couple days and this morning I went to charge it for an afternoon ride and when I flip on the switch, the Battery Indicator Display doesn’t turn on. At first i figured, no biggie, I’lll just plug it in and it’ll come back. I did so and flipped the switch-- nothing. Waited about 10 mins, still nothing. I checked the charger and the LED on the brick that usually goes amber is solid green. I try unplugging and plugging it in again-- SPARK. Shit. Try it again. another spark. Fuck.
Now its sitting, off and unplugged. Seems to me the BMS is fried? I’m really hoping there’s nothing wrong with the cells. I only received this thing in early September and haven’t ridden it more than 15 times. Seems kinda soon for this kind of shenanigans. I’m really hoping this is covered under some sort of warranty-- that is not immediately apparent to me on @carl.1’s Website. I emailed support on the issue so I’m hoping they can get back to me in a timely fashion. Posting here to ensure @onloop is aware.
Anyone ever experienced this?
Thanks for reading. T
