OK, NO. Don't buy that one. Yes it's cute and adorable. No it won't plug into domestic outlets without an adapter. On the label it says 150-250V 50Hz.

Mine from Amazon (KAWISH) had the US plug 115v no adapter, I know it is from Russia because of the instructions are written in Russian and Hilary was mention  ::)

And Luvrbus joins Epstein and a long list of others, Gary and BCM gone, and the rest of us only speak of it in hushed tones around rural campfires...

Happy coaching!

NoDak is still a goodly ways off, I guess it might depend on weight? Maybe it'd fit in a one size fits all USPS box. I've gotten some good deals on heavy stuff that way.

Check priority mail box sizes. If it fits it ships. Lady at post office told me that whatever box size you use, the charge is the same, whether it is filled with styrofoam or lead.

That's right. From NoDak (domestic) it should be in the $15-20 range. I think that's probably workable.

I found another charger you might like

https://www.ebay.com/p/17034078495

I had one last 3 years of constant use and liked it better than the scooter chargers.  But it takes 4-6 weeks to get it.

Only good for Mexico.  50htz.  I have another one that quit working but was 60htz.  I'll see if the transformer will swap out.

UPDATE:. I looked at the charger that quit working, and it had the identical internal parts as the new one.  So with nothing to lose, I cut the 50 htz plug off and put a regular 120v 60 htz plug on.  Tested it and the new charger is working fine.

I'm going to try that I think.
The text on mine is all in chinese so I don't have a clue what it says. I'll try to post a photo.

Check it out. Can't tell what the switches or the knob does, or what the windows are for.

Jim, all the information you need is there. Just rotate your head 90 degrees, and put on reading glasses. The left red switch is for switching between lithium and "common" batteries, the right switch is for switching between manual charging and "intelligent" charging.  ::) ;D ;)

Oh, well that's so obvious. I changed the plug, hooked it up and it seems to be working. Showed 25v in the left screen, when I plugged it in it showed 4amps of charge with a little battery icon showing it was charging. The right screen showed a line of chinese characters running across, no clue what that is.

So then, which position should the left switch be in, which position for the right one, and where should the knob be set?
