Ninebot uses two types of connectors for it wheels, Lemo and GX12.
|Wheel = Ninebot One
Connector = LEMO
|Wheel = Mini Pro, Mini Xiaomi…
Connector = GX12 – 4 pins
Batteries of Ninebot wheels are of type 15S (15 cells in series), odd value since the majority of unicycles use 16S batteries, except InMotion and some Gotway wheels with 20S batteries. Not so odd after all but more probably a marketing ploy from Ninebot to make its products in-compatible with others’ in order to charge eye-watering prices for spare parts (batteries & charger).
What’s nice however is that apart from the difference in connectors, the chargers are the same, meaning a Mini Pro charger can be used on a Ninebot One and vice-versa, with the good adapter. A version of Charge Doctor mixte for Ninebot has been made precisely for that, allowing lots of connection combinations :
- Mini Pro charger -> Mini Pro
- Mini Pro charger -> Ninebot One
- Ninebot One charger -> Ninebot One
- Mini Pro charger + Ninebot One charger -> Ninebot One (fast charging at 4A)
- etc …
|Charging NinebotOne with NinebotOne charger (white charger) : current = 2.00A|
|Fast charging NinebotOne with NinebotOne charger (white charger) + MiniPro charger (black charger) : current = 4.08A|
