The Onewheel GT is the largest board in the Onewheel family. The GT Hypercharge is built to decrease the charging time by half compared to the stock charger. Giving you more time to ride, but it comes at a cost.
The Onewheel GT Hypercharger is the fast charger for the GT. With a max output of 5.2A at 75.6V, it cuts the charging time in half compared to the stock charger.
Onewheel GT Hypercharger specifications
- 75V NMC Battery Charger
- Input: AC 100240V
- 50/60 Hz 5A 500VA
- Output: 75.6V 5.2A
- Led Green <= 0.3A
The charger will show a green light when the output to the board is less than 0.3A. This is considered the last step of the charging to top off the battery.
Using the Hypercharger will stress the battery more than the regular charger. It’s not recommended to use any fast charger like the Hypercharger for regular charging all the time. This will drastically decrease the battery lifetime and also risk bricking the board. There are numerous reports of the fast chargers for the Onewheel Pint actually destroying the Onewheel because of overcharging.
It’s still not confirmed if the Onewheel GT will have the same issue as the Pint or if Future motion has improved the design. The power train of the GT is totally new to accommodate the upgraded cells, 18s2p of 21700 with a nominal voltage of 3.7V-4.2V.
Pro tip: Don’t use the Hypercharger as your main charger or your board.
