Boosted Board

du DIY à l’envers !

Merci pour le partage !

:cry: mais c’est horrible de faire ça !!!

c’est pour la science !

Est-ce que vous savez pourquoi, on les trouve pas en France, leur histoire d’attente d’homologation (ce qu’il m’avait répondu en décembre), j’y crois pas depuis le temps !

Ils sont peut-être victime de leur succès et tout simplement débordé!

awesome!

Yo !

Alors comme je l’ai précisé sur le topic de ma vente de VESC, je vais bientôt partir aux Etats Unis.
J’en ai profité pour reserver une boosted board et sur mon reçu de commande, Il m’on donné une réduction de 100$ sur un produit boosted board.
De se que j’ai compris, en commandant sur le site par l’intermédiaire de ce lien, vous aurez une réduction de 100$.
Par la même occasion, j’aurais également un remboursement de 100$ si la commande est validée/livrée.

Je ne sais pas si c’est limité à une personne mais si au hasard cela intéresse quelqu’un, je me suis dis que ça ne pourrait être qu’ici.

A priori, Il vont sortir une V2 avec une “extended battery” et il sera possible de la swapper par nous même pendant un ride ( se que je voulais faire dans mon projet de Diy )
On verra bien se que ça donne mais en même temps, j’ai jamais fais de e-sk8 après tout se temps à vous lire! ah ah =)

J’ai trouvé un article qui en parle :

Voilà, Merci !

MErci pour le partage, effectivement la V2 apporte enfin le swap de batterie, et surtout une batterie de 190wh en plus de celle d’origine.
Apres le plus gros frein a la commander en France c’est les frais de port et la TVA a rajouter, sans compter le SAV.
bien plus simple de prendre une Evolve par exemple.

yes, de mon côté; si j’avais à choisir je partirais sur un boosted plus proche de mon style de ride; même si l’Evolve est très sympa… les possesseurs d’Evolve vont enfin voir qu’il y a AT et AT en découvrant deux moteurs :smiley:

Tartopom : J’ai vu quelques possesseurs de boosted board en France passer par Shipito.com ou Myus.com pour se faire livrer mais effectivement ça reste toujours chère comme produit.

Okp : Je ne connais que le truncated en longboard. J’imagine que ça n’a rien a voir avec la vanguard, ne serais ce que par le flex !
J’ai vu que le deck est moins large que la truncated.

yes, de mon côté; si j’avais à choisir je partirais sur un boosted plus proche de mon style de ride; même si l’Evolve est très sympa… les possesseurs d’Evolve vont enfin voir qu’il y a AT et AT en découvrant deux moteurs :smiley:

Honnestement, je n’ai pas essayé la boosted alors c’et dur a dire

yes, mais la vanguard que j’avais, en dehors de la puissance et des moteurs en 63mm avait un feeling plus “freestyle”/agile. Même si la GT est plutôt réussi.

j’ai envoyé un mail a boosted pour savoir comment fonctionne leur système de changements de batterie et c’est pas super rapide voici leur réponse

"To remove the battery, first ensure that the board is turned off. Place the board upside down on a flat surface. Using the included (or any other) 4mm hex wrench, remove the six bolts fastening the battery to the deck. Lift the battery to reveal the connector between the deck and battery pack and carefully pull the connector apart.

To insert a new battery pack, find the arrows on both ends of the connector (board & battery). Insert the two ends together, ensuring that the arrows are facing one another. You will know when the connector is fully engaged by checking that the end of the battery-side connector is aligned with the line in front of the arrow) on the deck connector. Replace and tighten bolts."

ouep, en gros un peu comme moi sur ma trampa… en 10 x plus lent :smiley:

La série noire des batteries continue!

IMPORTANT BATTERY INFORMATION
On two separate occasions, a lithium battery cell has vented inside the battery pack of the 2nd generation Boosted board. The battery enclosure is a fire-retardant composite and worked as designed to contain the cell failure. Fortunately, no one was injured and no property was damaged. Our engineering team is conducting a thorough investigation and we will update everyone with the results.

We strongly urge all riders with 2nd generation boards to stop riding and stop charging them. Instead, please store them away from anything flammable until we complete our investigation. If you don’t have a convenient place to store your board, you may optionally remove the battery. These are precautions we recommend to ensure rider and home safety. We will also stop shipping boards to new riders.

If your 2nd generation battery shows signs of venting, which includes any smoke or the battery pack becoming warm, please move the board to a safe location outside and contact us at 650-933-5151 immediately. We also ask that you do not dispose of the battery so our engineering team can inspect it.

We take battery and rider safety extremely seriously at Boosted. We are working non-stop to diagnose this issue and resolve it for all our riders. We appreciate how incredibly disappointing this is for many of our riders, and we ask that you follow our safety recommendations immediately until we complete our investigation.

Wow ça commence à faire beaucoup.

Les lipos sont plus dangereuses que les piles rechargeables de nos packs Unikboards et autres DIYes ?

ce sont des piles dans les boosted non ?

Oui ce sont des li ion, pas des lipo

@Toleg tu as tout l’historique de conception de leur battery Pack sur leur site, c’est intéressant.

First off, we’d like to thank you for your support and patience. We know we say it in almost every post, but we mean it. We are lucky to have such a committed community and getting everyone riding is incredibly important to us. The following post is pretty dense because we’d like to provide as much clarity as possible.
Background
As previously reported, we received notification from two customers that their lithium ion battery packs produced smoke while installed on their 2nd generation Dual+ boards. Neither customer reported any flame, fire, bodily injury, or property damage. Our investigation concluded that the incidents were caused by a short-circuit in the battery electronics, not from venting or other issues with the lithium battery cells. The short-circuit was caused by water entering the pack during riding due to quality control issues in two areas of the manufacturing process.
New Battery Packs for all 2nd Generation Board Owners
Out of an abundance of caution, we made the decision to stop shipping and report these two incidents to the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission and Health Canada. As a result, we are currently working with both agencies on a voluntary recall of all 2nd generation standard range battery packs. For all 2nd generation board owners, we will replace your current pack with the updated version at no cost to you. We will start shipping replacement batteries immediately.
You will need to:
Recycle your battery pack at a local recycling center. Please go to http://www.boostedboards.com/battery-pack-recall for detailed instructions on how to start the process. Once you have submitted the online Battery Pack Replacement form, and we have verified the information, we will send you an email indicating an expected ship date for your replacement battery pack. We will ship battery packs based on the date we verify your submission, so the sooner you complete the process, the sooner we will ship your replacement battery pack. If your board is at Boosted HQ for service, you don’t need to take any action. We will replace your battery pack with a new one and ship the board back to you when it’s ready. Look for an email from us in the next couple of days for a status update. If you have sold your 2nd generation board, please let us know by filling out this change of ownership form.
Update on Water Resistance
In our original design process, we tested the entire board, including the battery pack, motor control, and drive units for water resistance in two ways. First, we put thousands of testing miles on our prototype boards in a variety of road conditions. Second, we had an independent lab test the board and its key components against the widely accepted IPX5 (ingress protection) standards for water resistance. This standard is specifically intended to test against the spray-and-splash conditions that may be encountered with this type of product. At the time, we had concluded this was the right combination of tests to verify the board could be operated in wet conditions without damaging the subsystems.
As part of our investigation into the battery, we implemented a stricter and more comprehensive set of tests that better simulate the toughest real-world riding conditions. This new set of tests helped us verify that the improvements we’ve made to the battery pack materials and manufacturing process will better prevent water ingress into the pack.
However, when subjecting the board to this more rigorous set of tests, we discovered that after prolonged and repeated exposure to water, the board’s subsystems can be compromised in a way that affects rider safety, and that the IP standard for water resistance is not a sufficient test in these conditions. As a result, we are no longer marketing the 2nd generation board as water resistant and strongly recommend against riding in water or wet environments.
This will be a disappointment to many riders who were looking forward to riding a water-resistant board, especially after their orders were delayed. We’d like nothing more than to deliver what we promised, but we need to keep rider safety first and be honest about our product’s performance. We’re sorry and we’ll do better.
Our 1st generation riders have been enjoying their boards for millions of miles without water resistance, and we’re confident that our 2nd generation riders will too. For anyone who wishes to return their board or cancel their reservation for any reason, we will of course honor our money-back guarantee and offer a full refund.
$200 Credit at Boostedboards.com
For everyone who keeps their board past the 30-day return window, we will offer a $200 credit toward future purchases at boostedboards.com. This is a small way of saying thank you to all the riders who continue to trust and support us despite the delay in shipping and change in water resistance. Riders can use this for service kits, accessories, and other products to keep their boards in great shape for years and thousands of miles to come.
Updated Shipping Schedule for all Dual+ and Dual customers in North America
Now on to brighter news. We have an updated shipping schedule for many of you.
Customers Who Paid in Full, Awaiting Shipment
For those of you who paid for a board but have not yet received it, we will begin shipping Dual+ on February 20th and Dual on March 20th, after we have had time to replace a majority of current battery packs out in the field. We will ship boards in the order in which we received final payment.
If you cancelled your order and received a refund, you will have until January 27th to replace your order and keep your spot in the queue. We will send you a separate email shortly with instructions on how to reorder your board.
Existing Reservations
We will begin shipping out boards for new orders on March 27th. We will send out order confirmation emails a few weeks before your board is ready to ship, starting the week of March 6th.
For a detailed schedule for all groups mentioned above, please visit our Support Page.
International, Single, and Extended Range Pack
We will have an update for you by the end of January. Given the current situation, we have had to focus on requalifying the manufacturing process for battery production, which has impacted the rest of the product roadmap.
We are humbled by the support and good wishes that we have received from our community during a tough past couple of months. We hope you know that more than anything, we’re committed to delivering a board that meets your high expectations of Boosted. Thank you for supporting us and giving us the chance to do so.

TLDR: ils rappellent toutes les batteries gen2 et ne garantissent plus l’étanchéité de la boosted2 (bien qu’elle ait passé avec brio les certif ipx qui vont bien, les 2 skates qui ont eu des problèmes c’était à cause d’humidité dans les circuits des batteries).
Ils vont reprendre l’envoi!
