Hi i’ve got a onewheel and a Onewheel Plus. The plus has a malfunctioning battery. I live in Canada and with the Covid travel restrictions, I can’t cross the boarder to fedex the unit to future motion. I’m also worried about mailing in a $2000 machine at a time when total lockdown orders in california seem imminent. On top of that Fedex from Canada is so expensive that the total cost woudl exceed the value of two year old OW+. I’m wondering if someone can help me with advice or if there is a battery fixer out there who would be willing to take on the task. It has been suggested to me that a parallell group is dead. Might also be one dead cell.
I left the OW+ in the car trunk with a low charge at - 20 below. Since then, unit only operates for a minute or two It only charges to 53.8 volts (vs 58.2 for my working onewheel). It reads 100% of the charger and shuts down at 98%.
So I’m looking for advice or for a skilled battery repair person who thinks the battery can be repaired.
I’m also open to purchasing a replacement from someone who builds them. I’ve thought about the Two-X. I’m just not sure how covid has affected them and if they have stock. I’ve reached out to them via email. No answer so far.
I’m guessing I could disassemble the battery and test each cell and either fix individual cells with a single cell charger or replace the damaged cells. But I’ve never done that before and I realize that a little bit of knowledge can be a dangerous thing.
