The one with larger wires is better thoug anyway. As long as you have decent motor wires. Battery wires are of course up to you.

For those interested. Another way.

The hard to find standard 9.5mm connectors here fit the large motor and battery connector pins on all the r-net controllers here. So ideal if soldered, and ADHESIVE heat shrink is used. The smaller connectors, 6.3mm fit the smaller brake connectors on the power modules as used in the motor connectors plastic blocks too. These also should fit into the old plastic connector housings but those are not actually needed. These are what I use to make up looms, and when I remove the "wrong" motor conectors. So you dont need the official plugs and connectors. But its just another way. Ideally to do a strong job you do need to solder and use adhesive HD 3 to 1 or 4 to 1 heatshrink. Solid and low resistance when done properly.

this guy was nice - ask them -

i recently got a VR2 JS for a friend here also - not this guy but on ebay - they have those cables i seen them often

I sent him a message about buying vr2 connectors. I never thought buying a connector is so difficult, actually impossible.


Aliexpress?

thats a nice find - at aliexpress - originals - i have a hard time finding almost anything there or on ebay when i need things -

yes its not easy to find the connectors for chairs on ebay - they seem to have everything you dont need - and sometimes you get lucky

The ebay ones appear to only be the smaller 6.3 connectors?

The link above is the connector kit for VR2 50A. But I found links for the VR2 70/90A.

In Vietnam, people rarely buy goods on Aliexpress or Alibaba, they are not reliable enough. But we frequently buy on taobao. There are a lot companies offer service of buying+shipping goods from taobao. Their service is surprisingly good and the cost of service is very affordable, just a couple of dollars. Some months ago, I saw vr2 connectors on taobao and ordered through their service. The items arrived at their warehouse, they checked and found the items were not as described. The connector kits only had the pins without the plastic shells. They returned the items to the taobao seller and refunded to me. I am not sure if these items on Aliexpress this time fall in the same situation. Maybe I have to contact the seller and ask him take a pic first.

I feel that generic spade terminals are not safe if using in powerchair because they do not have shells with locks like the VR2 connectors.

Still avail. Get them while you can. I bought 3 complete r-net systems, CHEAPLY because I waited and watched for years and grabbed the options if/when they appeared cheap. Spares or upgrades are essential for the shelf!

If I didnt have 3 already I would take it as a spare part. They do occasionally appear on the US eBay for that sort of price. And the UK eBay. But you gotta be fast as it will disappear in hours. You need to be regularly checking to spot them. Or you only see the re-listed ones where they added the date into the price...



Same thing with joysticks. They appear occasionally and are sold in moments if the price is right. Sometimes new, or factory refurbs, which amounts to the same thing in a brown box. I ended up with 3 of the advanced colour CJSM2 https://www.cw-industrialgroup.com/Prod ... ules-CJSM2 for between £125 and £150 each. All were the same, and brand new (possibly factory refurb? Cant tell). Complete with original unused cables and screen protectors still on.

NOTE: These are NOT the cheapened permobil branded similar appearing ones. Those are hard to read outdoors, smaller screens, and a few buttons missing. Otherwise they are similar appearance at a glance in a photo. Beware!

Permobil one on the right, and the proper CJSM2 R-Net metal one - left.
The large screen generic R-Net CJSM2 one is brighter and clearer and visible outdoors and has the two extra and pretty essential buttons!

Part number in the description is a 90 amp one. Having had problems in the past where photos and description did not match followed by an argument on delivery i would check with any seller first before buying.

90a doesn't use that shape module. Rnet 90a uses the vr2 module body.

I know. But I would still question the mismatch of image and description - much easier than trying to get a refund when you don't get what you were hoping for.

They sell 90A r-net and vr2 cheaper... And dearer...

They are very easy to deal with. A quick email will get you a confirmation. I suspect its what it says on the tin.

It says on the wording and on the picture two different things, so be careful.

From experience, buying various things, wheels, and a charger, and a complete chair, the thing that is correct is the pictures. Those are the actual items for sale on each ad/ebay/website. The thing that may be wrong is the text. The ads are re-used that frequently describe the wrong thing completely. Or have left overs from other parts etc. And prices are all over the place. They have identical items or parts for sale at wildly different prices.

yes i noticed what they do - they use the same item for a few ads with different prices and end up selling the one with the lowest price which is the price they wanted in the first place

so they put an item for $100 - same item for $250 and again for $325 etc, and guess which item gets sold fast - the $100 one which is the only one they have to begin with or they may have 3 of them and if someone pics the $325 one they just made a killing

if you see 5 same items - you would pick the lowest price - most likely - its usually the same item reposted 5 times with 5 different prices
