Just taking a shot in the dark for info. I just got a 2012 Evolve Helium (for free!!!), with absolutely no info at all. So I’m hoping I can get some info to get it running.

Presuming that the LiFePO4 battery will still hold a charge, among the basics I need are 1) what is the charging voltage, and 2) what’s the pinning of the charging interface.

Before anyone yells at me, I know it’s a LiFePO4 (says so on the side panel), but I haven’t taken the plastics apart yet, so I don’t know the voltage of the battery. Actually taking the plastics apart to access the batteries (so I see the wiring) looks like a fairly major undertaking which I’d love to avoid.

If anyone has a clue on any of this, or any other info they may have about this scooter, I’d be very appreciative. Obviously, longer term, I’d love to get an owner’s manual, a shop manual, or a wiring diagram. But that’s wishful thinking right now.

TIA

Jack

Making some progress. Found markings on the hub motor that say it's 48VDC 1500 Watts.

Anyone seeing this...if you know the pinning of the charging interface (3 pins), I'd be grateful.

TIA

Finally bit the bullet, and took the plastics off. 4 batteries, 14VDC each. Only 2 pins connected on the charging interface, red & green. So no issue there. Now I pray the batteries will hold a charge.
