I have 3 sunrise ones, inc the one on my salsa chair, and a permobil. Since it only displays for a short time on boot, why does it matter? It doesent ffect anything else as far as I know.

I am trying to figure out what type of USB Cable I need to connect my programmer (see picture) to my computer. I have an R-Net controller and the LED joystick.

I have read that it requires the special USB FTDI cable, but I don’t see how that would work for my unit. Is that one only used with the VR2 controller? The port on my programmer looks like a printer USB cable connection. Is that the correct type of USB cable I need or can someone please let me know what cable is needed. Thank you for your help.

Of course it might weird out any tech that goes to work on the chair later - I'm sure most would probably tell you it was broken......'

I also know of folks that like to do confusion... A guy I knew a long time ago had a variety of touring bikes - he'd wear his HOG jacket when riding his Gold Wing, his GWRA jacket while riding his Guzzi, and his MGNOC jacket on the Harley.... If going to a brand rally, he would ride the 'wrong' brand.... If he got any accessories that had a brand logo on them, he would put them on any bike OTHER than the one they went with.... :eh: :?

So this is the value to change when I fit lithium?

To what value, 27V?

Btw why is the OEM setting only 22.5v for lead? Is it so top speed is the same regardless of battery volts?

To allow headroom for steering SM, with lithium you can up this to 25v since there's less voltage drop under load. :thumbup:

Oh I see, thanks Steve.

I wouldn't have thought of that, good point!!! :worship

It obviously didn't apply when I did the mob scooter. Just as well, as I didn't think of it anyway. :oops:
