Bonus 4A Charger vs. 5A Upgraded Model:
If you order a King Song before the end of the Month, we will be sending you a bonus 4A rapid charger, which will reduce your charging time by 50% over the standard solid brick charger that’s included in the box.
Although this 4A JT charger is a certainly a step up from the stock model, but it is also not without some issues. If you intend to use the partial-charging feature to maximize the life-span of your battery pack, once it reaches the 80/90% charge state, the charger will momentarily stop, or spin down, & start back up again several seconds later. It will continue to do this behaviour until the charging chord is physically disconnected from the port. Also, in standby mode, it produces quite a bit of heat, so needs unplugged from the wall after you finished charging the Wheel.
The alternative upgrade option is to pay an additional $100 for the latest release of the eWheels branded 5A charger. As can be seen in the comparison chart of the two models, this charger has everything you’ll ever need. For a high-capacity Wheel such as the KS18S, the addition of a high-quality charger, which has the capability to extended the lifespan of the battery pack by 4-5x is well worth the small initial investment.
