Remote stopped connecting to board after 1 year. After much problem solving figured it was the battery. Bought a new one and the board is back up and running
Forced to buy new battery after less than a year of owning G3 due to drastic battery life drop off.
Good customer service to help me stop the package and change the shipping address.
Finally Got New Life!
The Item I order was not delivered. UPS drove down the street and did not stop at my house I saw him I was home. So he didnt not delivered the package. I ask service to resolve it. And they told me that I fill a form for the insurance. I can fill a form for you, but the insurance on the mail thatys someting the seller need to resolve I did not get my item and I pay for it. So where is it?
A bit expensive
I bought the 346, and it was definitely worth the money. Especially since I run 600w hub motors so it helps tremendously for maximum distance. Noticeably no difference in weight. All electric longboards are heavy to begin with so you adapt quite easily.
The new battery had a better seal and looks and works very well. Definitely more water resistant that the battery that came with my board
Just got a new battery and it runs great! So happy with this purchase!
Fast service and easy install of new battery
When my battery died it was a rough week without my board. I've had this board for almost 2 years and the weather was starting to get better and the thought of not having a board was horrifying as I use it everyday.
But luckily the problem was addressed quickly and a new bigger battery was purchased and after a week of having it there have been no issues, longer range, and I'm enjoying the warmer weather on my board as I commute to and from work.
Excellent purchase! Y'all fuk'n rock!
So far I really like it. I have a G3 and I absolutely love everything about the board except I wanted to go further. Because if your in turbo it drains your battery pretty quickly. And if you're in sport you can get to a pretty far destination but getting back could be a problem. So I bought the second battery for my G3 and I have zero complaints now. I get speed, range, and reliability. If anybody is worried about their range on their board I would highly recommend buying a second battery.
I think it's nuts how expensive the battery is I mean you can get a new board for a little bit more and the fact that they just go bad is like mind boggling to me that it's expected to go out after 6 months get a warranty for as long as you can and me I'm probably going to buy a summer board they have a five year warranty customer service plan
My battery arrived fast. This is the extra range I needed.
So far so good! Great purchase
At the cost of adding a few pounds to the backpack that I carry, I get double the distance out of my Zealot! Totally worth it!! Backfire pulled through again with prompt shipping and quick tracking info! Thanks yet again Backfire! Much love, and all the best always!!
Battery came "as pictured" and was just a simple 6 bolts and 2 simple plugs. Maybe took 5 minutes, if that, to swap my spent battery out AND got it in 3 days! Super stoked to have my board back!
Bought a used one needs some TLC g3 675 miles needs rear hubs and battery pack dies fast
Easy install 2 plugs 6 screws with 6 washers plug & play - lots of power awesome purple led under glow that emits from the sides & the range is outstanding! Great job!
Arrived within the week. Perfect fit on the board. Love the purple lights
I bought an extra battery for my 1 year old Zealot, took about a month to get from US to Sweden with USPS priority, with customs stopping it. Did not have to pay more than about 17$ import tax, very nice.
My old 311wh pack actually still outperforms the new 345wh S pack, I get stronger acceleration and same range. But as I'm only 2 charge cycles in on the new pack, it will probably get better.
Having two packs is awesome, being able to change packs sure is relieving range anxiety a lot when traveling longer distances. Changing packs takes about 5 minutes.
I wouldn't necessarily recommend to pay the small extra price for zealot s battery vs original 311wh, seems like they use the same cells and perform about the same.
The zealot S pack will probably run at low speed at the end of the charge for a couple kms more.
The purple lights did get more heads turning while nightriding, looking like something out of 2Fast 2Furious.
BACKFIRE G3PLUS--installed with-- Zealot s BATTERY!!
(Using a "Zealot s" 346WH Battery Pack 21700 Cell 12S2P for my Backfire "G3 PLUS")
First of all before anything,
If you're thinking of buying a spare battery for anything..do it. NOW! A worldwide shortage of battery cells is happening so get your hands on any power sources you've been eyeing lol. This E-Boarding lifestyle has changed my life and the way I look at my city. And to even think I can stop, take a break, switch out batteries quickly (minute or two) and DOUBLE the range is amazing. Truly amazing. Must haves..protective gear, night-time lighting and definitely a spare battery!
I'm so so glad I got this (Zealot s) battery instead of the battery I wanted (G3PLUS.."white light") because it... glows an ultra sexy PURPLE! The batt shortage was worrying me and I gave up and got the (345WH Zealot s) battery because it was the most powerful in stock at the moment but I'm glad I did! It's now my main battery...sorry G3plus battery.. that purple wayyy to sexy! So many heads turn as the gorgeous purple glow breaths and pulses softly. Ahhhhh technology.
The design is sleek and slim. It's "Tonka" tough plastic that feels SOLID and well built with that final human inspection touch! The fact that even alone..just alone this is one mighty power bank is cool enough! You can charge a range of many devices (cell phone,controller,lights ect) via USB. I definitely chose the right company and made a great decision on getting a spare battery. Very well designed. Very well made.Very beautiful. It's worth the money.. period.
Great customer service and the fastest shipping I've seen around. I order parts and boards at the strangest time of the day and BACKFIRE gets on it! Shipping fast and with insurance..get out of here! Stop,shop around, take notes then come get BACKFIRE!
I love these boards so much I am a BACKFIRE MAN ALL THE WAY .
Putting the new battery on and experiencing the power the zealot truly has was great! Very happy to have of received my new battery in such short time.
