Focbox DRV Chip blown

Kinda an update to my old thread… but it was on the other forum. :wink:
(Apparent DVR chip fried - unused focbox - first build - etc)

Got in contact with enertion

“You can purchase the focbox warranty on the site and we can send a replacement if the old one is sent to us. Otherwise, you need to get it repaired by the drvwizard.”

Couple of things…

  1. The warranty listed on their webpage is a whopping 139 usd. Which is insane.
  2. Who is DVR wizard

I have found a local place that seems to think it will be easy to replace for 30 bucks.+ the chip
I’m thinking at this stage I just take my chances with them than deal with enertion.

@JohnnyMeduse is the wizard you’re looking for.
Not sure if shipping from down under is worth it though. Maybe give your place a shot?

30 is a good price, it’s just a drv chip as long as they are competent in component repair it will be easy.

I do reccomend a Vesc expert though only because they are familiar with the product.

Where are you located?

Western Australia.

These are the guys,
https://www.atmwa.com.au/

They do seem like pro’s

I’ll give them a go and see what happens. better than paying enertion for basically a whole new focbox. or shipping things around the globe.

Are you talking about focbox or focbox unity?

Cause enertion does not even have focbox warranty listed they have UNITY warranty listed for 139$

its a single focbox. yeah i know it doesnt make sense.
“Please pay 139 usd… (which is close to the cost of a new sinlge focbox) and send us the old one back”

yeah nah thanks.
