    There’s nothing they can fix regarding no regenerative brakes when the battery is full. It’d simply fry it. If you happen to live at the top of a hill, all you can do is simply charge to 80% instead. It’s the exact same “issue” with boosted boards. I have a boosted, and if this is an issue, with the Ride app, you can set it to stop charging at a set percentage. It’s clearly stated in the Boosted manual though. I’d be surprise Dot didn’t mention it in theirs. You’d have read it before going downhill… :)

    I don’t really understand how you expect this company to be able to fix this. It’s literally Physics. When you brake, you take kinetic energy and change it to something else. If the battery is full, then there is no way to add more energy without damaging the cells. Aka, if you know you’re going down a big hill, dont charge to 100%.

    I must be getting old and didn't understand a lot of those terms. What's a subway? Seriously tho, it shouldn't be that hard to add a mechanical braking system that takes over when the batteries are full, or perhaps a heater element to bleed off excess energy.

  57. Aaron Gagne

    Aaron Gagne12 giờ trước

    Could they find a way to convert excess power into heat? Cap the speed at a certain limit, and any additional speed is just dumped through a resistive heater of some kind? That way you always know you have enough braking power for the total inertia of board and rider.

    And this is why you should know how to foot brake. Learn to skate before you jump on a board and bomb a hill... If you don't already know how to foot brake you have bo business being on an electric skateboard. That makes you a danger to yourself and others and is super irresponsible.

    The fix is to learn how to go fast before you go fast. Foot breaking and sliding are skills everyone needs to know when taking skateboards above their running speed. As an ambassador of the sport it's kinda your responsibility to lead by example.

  90. Owen Wilsey

    Owen Wilsey14 giờ trước

    I wish the Verge would do there research before posting their thoughts. All electric skateboards will eventually loose breaking power if you apply breaks going down a hill. This is because the Battery Management System (BMS) doesn’t allow the battery to be charged over a certain voltage (depends on the battery) this results in the batteries shutting down in self preservation. It is possible In theory to have the breaks always work even downhill but this would have a pretty significant negative impact on the batteries. You should always be aware of this no matter what electric skateboard your riding (even Boosted!!) next time Verge do your research and this video would have been better. Also it’s possible to slow down by carving hard or power sliding....

  91. Control-Z
