After unpacking your Solowheel for the first time, follow all the steps below before you start riding.
Charging the Battery
The Solowheel comes with a built-in lithium-ion battery pack. The battery should be fully charged before you use the Solowheel for the first time. Be sure to charge the battery in a clean, dry location.
- 1. Plug one end of the power cord into the Solowheel. Plug the other end into a grounded AC outlet.
The red charging light on the charger unit will turn on.
- 2. The charger may take up to 2 hours to complete its charge. The red light on the charger will turn green once it is finished.
If you are not regularly using your Solowheel, you should fully recharge the battery at least every thirty (30) days. If the battery power drops to low, you may not be able to recharge it.
Power Level Indicators
Once the battery is fully charged, the indicator light on top of the Solowheel will be green when you turn the unit on. This is what the lights on the Solowheel mean:
- Solid Green: indicates that the Solowheel is charged and ready to be used.
- Solid Orange: indicates that the battery is about half drained.
- Solid Red: indicates that the battery is low and should be charged.
- Blinking Red and Shake Warning: the Solowheel will notify you when the battery charge is dangerously low by shaking the wheel when you are riding it. If the shake warning occurs, slow down and safely step off. Do not attempt to ride again until the battery is recharged.
