Onewheel Car Charger

Did you know that it is possible to charge your Onewheel boards as you drive? This is an absolute game-changer for many. With the Onewheel car charger, you can explore new spots for your board riding, while keeping the board charged on the go.

The good thing about the Onewheel car charger is that it charges the board by simply plugging it into your car lighter and it charges faster than the stock charger. It comes in different models. It is advisable to confirm the compatibility of the car charger with your particular hoverboard model before purchasing it, as some chargers are not compatible with some models.

Before you start using a Onewheel car charger there are some things that you should consider and know about

Leaving The Board Plugged In While The Car Is Off

Cars function differently. While some cars will completely turn off all ports as soon as the power is off and the key is removed, other cars leave the 12V plugs powered on while the car is off. To confirm where your car falls, check the light indicator on your board when you turn off your car.

This is important because you don’t want your charger to drain your car battery dead.

Your Car Outlet Type

The Onewheel car charger may not work on older cars because the Onewheel car charger requires a 10A cigarette lighter outlet.

The good thing is that most recent cars have a 10A fuse integrated into the cigarette outlet so it should work, and the car outlet (12V), producing a maximum power output of 120 Watts.

How To Charge Your Board In The Car?

This is the procedure to properly charge your onewheel in the car:

  • Using the official car charger plug the charger into the board.
  • Ensure the car is running
  • Plug the charger into the car outlet

Using a power inverter car adapter is another option that we have heard some riders using. With the care adapter, they can use the stock home charger and plug it into the car adaptor. The BESTEK 300W Power Inverter DC 12V to 110V AC Car Inverter is a good option if you prefer this method.

With any of these methods,  you can conveniently charge your Onewheel in a car. Using the car’s cigarette outlet, you can charge up the board while driving, although this method limits the charge current to 1.6 Amps.

You can buy Onewheel car chargers online from reputable stores like Amazon. Remember to always check the compatibility of the charger with your device before ordering it.

Don’t Leave Your Board Inside Your Car

It is not recommended to leave your board and the battery in direct sunlight inside the car for prolonged periods of time whether you are charging it or not.

Even leaving the board inside a hot car even when it’s not in direct sunlight is not good for the battery. Overheating and freezing temps are not good for the life of your battery.

Prolong The Life Of Your Battery: Proper Charging

A Onewheel battery replacement or upgrade can cost you between $400 and $700 so you will want to make your battery last with proper charging, proper storage, and proper use.

There are a few things you can do to ensure a long battery lifespan and some things you can do to shorten the life of your battery.

Simple stuff like draining your battery dead and then leaving it stored dead can ruin a battery. Even storing it at the right percentage of charge can prolong the life of your battery. To find out more at Onewheel Battery Charging, Storage, and Use
