Nice scooter. I want to paint it!
Bring that motherfucker up to Los Angeles and Ill hook it up, no charge. Shit just looks like it would be super fun to stylize and re-finish. Good work bro.

Most of the quality lighting your going youre find out there is going to be designed around 12v systems since thats what cars and motorcycles use. Remember that instead of messing around with stepping voltage down to 12v from your original battery pack, you can always just add an extra battery pack of 3 or 4 18650 batteries in series and use this as your power source for lights/horn etc. I found that the Bird brain gps box that many scooters have mounted on top of the stem worked real well for this purpose. I glued two of those boxes together on my red scooter to make a big 12v battery box for all my accessories. It worked out well for me, looks good, is super easy to add new 12v accessories, and I can replace the batteries when they get weak. Best of all, it doesnt draw power from my scooter battery and decrease my range. Or you could even stuff the batteries in the neck and just stack em on top of each other in a small tube or something. You can buy a pre-made battery holder or just solder wire to the batteries to make your pack. Just dont get em too hot if you solder. You need to work quick.

Hi.

Love your battery box.

Is it only connected to the headlight?
Do you charge it with the rest of the scooter or are those two things on the top charging ports ?

thanks

I control headlights and horn with it. It only houses 3 18650 batteries inside so it doesnt support the headlights for more than an hour or so. I dont usually ride at night, thats why I configured it that way. I also house my 2 m 365 bluetooth boards inside along with a volt gauge with dual readouts. I switch out the batteries when they get low, I just swap them for fully charged ones off of my 18650 battery charger. Simple as that.

oh, the two things on top are my on/off switches for each motor. inside the board right underneath those buttons are the bluetooth circuit boards. those buttons simply push the buttons on the bluetooh boards to turn the motors on or off.
