I have a Smart Balance Wheel but I don't have the charger for it. It is identified as having Specification 650x245x230. It uses a charger with a 3 prong female connector. Further information is hard to come by. I think it equates to being a 36 volt with 4.4 Ah Lithium Ion batteries. If that is correct, I think the appropriate charger seems to be your part number CHR-36V1.6A3P, or CHR-C36V1.67A3P. Is this right? If not, what do you recommend?
The CHR-36V1.6A3P and CHR-C36V1.67A3P chargers will not work with it. These chargers are for lead-acid batteries instead of Li-Ion batteries, and their 3-port connector is 12.5mm instead of 9mm as needed for the self balancing scooters.
We have been getting a large number of requests for Smart Balance Wheel battery chargers. It appears that some of the original chargers supplied with some of these self balancing two wheel scooters were defective and either do not work at all or only work for a few days.
We now have high quality models of these battery chargers in stock. Here is a link to our page they are sold: https://cart.electricscooterparts.com/ProductDetails.asp?ProductCode=CHR-42V2A-LI-3PS
I just bought the smart balance wheel and my sister used it for an hour or two and then the red battery light came on that it needs to be charged. I plug it in, the green light on the charger goes red but then 2 hours later, it's still not charged. I opened up the board and made sure everything was pushed in tight but that didnt fix it. What's wrong with it?
It was plugged in for at least 6-7 hours and the light never turned green.
