Today I am testing the Samsung SmartTag Plus (EI-T7300). I want to use it so I can track and find my E-Bike when it is stolen. I already have a GPS tracker but it is cumbersome to install and use. A Samsung SmartTag (or Apple AirTag) should be much more easy…
I bought a SinoTrack GPS Tracker to secure my e-bike against theft (in addition I also have installed a bike alarm). The advantage of this device is a lifetime free access to the SinoTrack website, i.e. I just have to pay the SIM card that I have to install. Please continue to see my setup and what I think about this neat little device…
My Fiido D4S 20 inch foldable e-bike does not come with any suspension (neither in the front nor on the seatpost). This is why I had a rough ride esp. for medium to long distances (and off-road of course). I could install a suspension, but I wanted to keep the bike lightweight for travel. That’s why I tried the Schwalbe balloon tyres as one of my most important upgrades. They should give me a more comfy ride (when inflated to 2 bars), converting my bike almost into a fat-bike. Please read on to see how I installed them (on an e-bike with a hub motor) and about the advantages and disadvantages! (Hier gibt es diesen Blogpost auf deutsch 🇩🇪…)
I ordered 4 batteries from China to attach them to my e-bike (Fiido D4S). I want to put them in parallel to get more range for longer trips or use them separate and change them when one is empty. I also want to put batteries in series to have a higher voltage than 36V, i.e. more speed. But that is not so easy. (In the meantime I bought a separate 48V battery because putting in series is kind of difficult.) Please read on to see how I did it! (Es gibt diesen Artikel auch auf deutsch 🇩🇪!)
Changing the controller is kind of specific for my Scooter E-Bike (Fiido D4S, should also be good for M1 pro) but since the Kuteng controller I used is very well known you can apply the knowledge to other project as well, also if you want to update the controller of your scooter. Just the wiring might be different.
My main goal was to increase the torque (i.e. go faster uphill). So I needed to put a controller with more current (Ampere). If I would want to increase speed I would need to connect a 48V instead of a 36V battery. Please read on to see how I did it! (Diesen Artikel gibt es hier auch auf Deutsch 🇩🇪!)
Here I will log all upgrades that I have done or that I am planning to do with my E-Bike(s) from China. Most of them will also work for scooters, because (I am sure it does not surprise you that) Chinese E-Bikes are actually much like scooters! I will do simple updates that require almost no tools whatsoever, but also more complex ones where some basic knowledge about electronics could come in handy 😉 (Die deutsche Version 🇩🇪 dieses Artikels findet ihr übrigens hier!)
Today I have the pleasure to show you an RGB light, the Moman MLX-RGB. Moman sent it to me for testing. Before I had a bi-color light from Moman and I wanted to see what else I can do with an RGB light. I will show you the examples first so you can replicate them if you want. And afterwards the specific features and advantages of this RGB light.
Today I am testing the Moman MA6 Lavalier Microphone. Moman sent it to me for review. What’s special about this microphone? First of all it can automatically detect which device is connected. This is pratical for me because I want to pair it both with my smartphone and my camera. Then it has a 6m long cable, so I can still have high quality audio when I am further away from the camera. Please read on to see the results of my review!
Today I am testing a monopod, the Moman M65. I always wanted to have a monopod to support the weight of my heavy gimbal setup and also to have a more stable footage for example when hiking. I already have a 3-legged-tripod but with a monopod I think I am much quicker and more flexible when I am doing run-and-gun filming, for example when I am travelling with a group of people. So I was very happy that Moman sent it to me for review. Please read on to see if it can help me and you in making better pictures and videos.
I recently tested the Moman C2 wireless microphone and compared it to the Rode Wireless Go. Using a wireless microphone has been a real game changer for me. Today I want to show you my 10 best setups. You can use any wireless microphone of course, I will use the Moman C2 but you can also use the Rode Wireless Go for example. Let’s go!
