Re: How to connect bluetooth to EM3EV batteries?

BMS Doctor works great on IOS devices. It’s in the App Store. I have both android and iOS. On iOS I have a nicer interface but no logs. On android I have logs but the interface isn't has nice. Logs are essential to me so I end up using both. iOS for viewing and android for logs. I use a discarded a...

Eggrider Apps Stopped Working on Android and iOS

Due to technical difficulties the Eggrider app has stopped working on both platforms. Here a link to the issue https://bitbucket.org/eggpower/eggriderv2/issues/160/mobile-app-craches-at-startup-please . The fix involves sideloading the android app and using testflight for ios.

Re: Surly E•D•LHT - Touring eBike Build with BBSHD!

Oh you're right, good catch - I see now where my fundamental misunderstanding/mistake was. Unfortunately the default values from the drop down you're talking about (I read the manual too) end up giving even more incorrect readings than the results that came from using the calibration tool under the...

Re: Surly E•D•LHT - Touring eBike Build with BBSHD!

I have a BBSHD kit and 20 ah battery from EM3ev and my eggrider display and battery information don't match either. If you figure this out please post back. It's the only "problem" I've had with my install, minor but annoying.

Re: CA3 datalogging data logging weirdness need help

I did some more testing, and I think I figured it out. The problem is that despite setting it to never fall asleep, the macbook does fall asleep when you close it. But it takes a bit of time to fall asleep (it's doing some housekeeping I guess), and during that time, the data logging does continue....

WorkFlowy I LOVE WorkFlowy! I've been using it for many years so I was happy to see I could import, link or embed WorkFlowy into a Notion page. I probably won't be using it as much now though. My latest use case for Notion is when watching a video or reading an article. I embed the page with video ...

Sounds like a replacement for some of the functions my "first tool" is already doing better, and which can only be sharpened with non-physical exercise. Incredible capacity, instant access, and automatic tagging and relational tagging...Trying to imitate what the brain already does better...

Re: Meet Miss Mino'aka

Well done! If you like the hill climbing ability on the stock chainring, this large one will give you the highest top speed on flat ground. If it sometimes struggles on the steepest grades and you don't mind a slightly lower top speed, a smaller chainring is the best bang for your buck. Thanks! You...

But you can test yours with a hair dryer or heat gun, with a thermal sensor in a dollop of it, and see at what temperature it begins to flow. :) Put the dollop on a metal plate, and heat the plate itself from beneath.
Brilliant! :thumb:

Re: DIELECTRIC GREASE

Until I understood this I thought, as others had in my research, that the grease had to be applied carefully around the outside edge of the connectors so as not to get any on the pins. The way I apply it is to put a small amount on the male end of the connectors. Too much grease and it's harder to ...

I built this bike as my primary and currently only vehicle. I’m retired in Florida so my needs for a vehicle are very limited. I took a chance on ebikes even though I never rode one. I rode a bike to work and school when I was in college but gave it up when I moved somewhere with more hills. I remem...
