Common Problems on TC
how many pins are in the connector from the battery? 3 pins?
The Super Soco Standard charger has 2 pins (+ and -, about 70.5 V) which fit into the 2+4 pins of the battery connector. For charging the data pins are not necessary. The data pins report the state of charge, the battery errors and the battery temperature to the controller. (what prototol?)
The external charging socket of the bike has only the + and - pins connected.
The battery paralleler has 2 pins (+ and -) and 2 data pins on the battery plugs.
It is interesting that the battery has only 3 pins connected inside, like the NIU battery.
It does work but it’s not very strong. It’s where the motor charges the battery while slowing down which requires less use of the friction brakes.
It’s indeed very faint. And the problem I have is that after the regen process sometimes the throttle doens’t react. This is very dangerous when you slow down at a crossroad and then want to take off again.
Has anyone else encountered this?
I was told this by Vmoto via my dealer

This issue is caused by customers ‘riding the throttle’. They are keeping it a little bit open when cruising, but not at the speed of the bike. The throttle / speed is linear. If the customer keeps the throttle at 20% when the bike is at 80% speed, the controller registers an error. This is cleared by closing the throttle – the alternative is that the customer is able to open up the throttle (without realising it’s already open) with unpredictable results.
I have been able to replicate on both TS and TC, but it’s much less obvious on the TS owing to the lower power. So, not a defect, more a characteristic of the controller. I will register with the manufacturer that some customers are having difficulties.
