Is “Komodo” someone’s brand name.or something. I was thinking of using that name :joy:


#24

Yep just checked and apparently it does. Well thanks for bringing that to my attention lol I’ll be wearing my respirator :no_mouth:


#25

There they are… one happy family. Did you get your 1166 deck yet??


#26

Nope not a brand and there’s no copyright as far as I know. It’s just the name I’ve been using for this board and two others. I have no plans to start selling Komodo builds or anything, so if you have more legit plans in mind for it or just want to use the name it’s cool with me.

But ya know, don’t come sue me for using the name in retrospect lol


#27

Komodo is yours Bro. Everybody knows that already in the DIY Esk8 world. We are probably not that many eboarders worldwide but certainly this forum is regularly visited by most. Good news travel fast. :wink:


#28

Sorry I had clue about it, my bad


#29

Noooo, dang fools haven’t answered my request (??) seems that they are seasonal workers or smthng, they work when it pleases them (??) Reminds me of Dave Cindrich, hard to get that fella. I’ve been thinking on going for a Rayne deck but haven’t found a similar one to fulfill my requirements.

My two favorite suppliers :smiley::point_right: @moon & @257


#31

Thanks for the words of encouragement dude :grinning::+1:

That sucks they are lagging on your custom order. I want to see that deck all put together with the plates :star_struck:

I still owe you some stickers btw!

I tried to charge the board for the first time today :slightly_smiling_face:
and the charge port shorted out :frowning_face:

Went to plug in my temporary 42v 2a charger and immediately got a nice POP and the board went dark

Scared the shit out of me, but I disconnected the charger, turned off the switch, powered it on again and everything came back and is fully functioning. I checked my wiring over and over to confirm I had the correct polarity at the port and to the BMS and it all looks good. BMS has no signs of burns, although it seems to be warped under one of the heat sinks

I noticed the warp when I installed it tho so that wasn’t a recent change…

Something I did notice was the numbering of the poles on the charger…

When I wired it up I went off of this diagram to determine polarity

IMG_0851

I noticed the numbers didn’t match up at all, so I tested the poles at the charger (which I should have done before shoving it into my board like an idiot) and whaddayaknow they’re the freakin opposite :face_vomiting:

I assumed all 3 prong chargers like this would be standardized since they have that lock channel and can only be oriented one way, but apparently not… That or the diagram I used was just 100% wrong from the start :upside_down_face:

So when my board popped and blacked out on me I assume that was the BMS saving my ass a lot of trouble and shutting things down before they burned… and I know that crappy charger is toasted as it now makes all kinds of sounds and pretty colors other than green when it’s plugged in… but now I’m wondering should I be worried about my BMS being fried?? And should I replace that charge port since it arced?

Im pretty sure things are ok, at least visually but I have a limited understanding of the circuitry of the BMS and didn’t want to go probing around with the meter unless I knew what I was looking for…


#34

The bms should be fine, they disconnect automatically when shorted. I would replace the charge port though just to be safe


#35

That’s good to hear, thanks man :+1:
