Not sure if this is a double post - last post doesn't seem to have shown up after a couple hours? To view images REGISTER or LOGIN for full access.
Could you share which brand of scooter that battery came from? Do you know if all rental brands are flashing the boards to custom firmware?
I assume this is never a problem with normal external ES4 batteries directly from segway? This only happens to users with a personal scooter trying to use the rental battery?

- does it matter which version of firmware a personal scooter is using compared to the firmware in the batteries (either from normal or rental batteries) - like if someone is on an older firmware ES2 and tries to use a newer (but non-rental) firmware external battery?
Thanks for sharing all your videos good sir!
just an FYI - I got two externals off ebay (around 75 USD a pop) and installed them both (not at once) on my ES2 for testing - both of them had firmware 0.1.3.6 according to the segway app, and the testing scooter had 0.1.3.9.
I always reject to update the firmware for fear of it making it slower or some other negative "update" they have done, but as far as I can tell they both work flawlessly as far as speed and charging and everything, goes to 100 percent power, and shows 4 solid white lights when the status button is pressed on the battery.
One odd thing I have noticed - is that both external batteries do not have the red lights powered on that you see in all the promotional images - not sure if that is just because of me not updating the firmware, or if there is more to it. EDIT2: Oh wait - I did not know that those lights on the external batteries only glow when the headlight is turned on! Doh!
Anyway thought I'd share what I had going on!
