Extra Distance and a Reasonable Charge Rate
This charger works well. Specs: Input: 100-240VAC 50/60Hz Output: 63.0V, 2.0A, 126W I didn’t time the charge compared to a 1.1A 63V charger, so I’m taking their word for the charge rate right now. Tested on the Segway MiniPro with 300Wh battery this charger charges to the full 5700mAh capacity of the battery, unlike the original charger which only charges to 4800mAh. You might get more recharge cycles by only charging to 4800mAh, but for many uses that is not enough capacity, people rarely discharge all the way to zero anyway as who wants to be stranded, and when the battery level drops segway limits the top speed so it’s annoying one your battery get too low. I would only say that if your battery is going to sit all winter, maybe don’t charge it up completely because leaving the battery at full charge for extended periods of time is a bit stressful on it. Expensive given the price of the Segway unit, but Segway USA is to blame as they shipped a charger that implemented their policy instead of letting the customer decide, as they did in Europe. To me the extra capacity means a lot. For my usage they need to actually double the battery capacity, but this little bit helps a lot in many cases. The price is actually cheaper than many eBay sellers, but yes markup on these things is crazy in the US. The charger plug is a nice solid plug but it is plastic with no metal locking fastener to match the one on the battery. Some with a handy cable tie for output the cord, but not the power cord. It uses a standard PC/equipment style power-cord which is nice.
The charger I received with my Segway died on me and this charger is a fantastic replacement! Highly recommend!!
Awesome, great and perfect.
