    C'mon all you math gurus!

    Yes about 24 -1/4'' and you can go a little shorter but not by much. I have 2 pounds at battery level, and I put about 4+ pounds in the nose to have perfect trim. so like @tbone1004 mentioned it would be risky to shorten more than another inch. I really recommend to install the Smart DPV...

    C'mon all you math gurus!

    A UV-18 total weight is about 75 pounds. For every inch you remove you will reduce the buoyancy of scooter by 3.18 pounds + weight of material which is not enough to concern your self with. The amount of body you can remove will be limited by how deep you can recess the battery. Make sure you...

    There is still some room for improving the trim. I will try to trim it nose slightly up instead.

    Cheap and Easy UV18 Lithium Conversion with some important UV18/26 information

    @Jona Silverstein Silverstein is easiest to reach via messenger. He has always responded promptly. I have installed the smart-dpv on my UV and seems to work like a charm. Very easy install and programing for brushed motors ,and seems to have the ability to monitor your dpv's performance on a...

    New Genesis 2.0

    I think what you are experiencing is the lithium ion charging method of constant amperage / constant voltage. At the constant voltage phase the amps are very low and balancing the batteries The charger is probably calculating time to full charge with constant current values, being higher in...

    @tbone1004 yes it trims out very nice, but most of the ballast needs to be in the nose. I prefer it on the ever so slightly negative side. Only because I prefer the scooter to settle on the bottom if I put it in the water before I’m ready to clip it on and go. Or if it detached from me I know to...

    These are my two battery packs I built. They have a top grade smart bms with Bluetooth. Each battery weighs 5.5lbs. With a capable max continuous discharge of 60 amps each, combined they can discharge 120 amps. Voltage is 29.4 and 21ah each, so combined in parallel they are 42 ah With Uv-26...

    Exactly the situation for me. I dive mostly in the St. Laurence river and we go out pretty far out into the shipping channel in strong current. and getting back if scooter goes AWOL will be a struggle. I also like diving solo so having a backup will give me the chance to go further with out...

    I did buy a magnus with Vorterx controller. My intention was to sell the UV-26. It had one bad battery so, I have to change both batteries at $ 700.00. I would have had to give it away for $1,300 Canadian at best with working batteries. At this point I figured if I have to give it away I might...

    Yes, @11hollywood I will soon be posting some pics and info on what I did. So far I reduced the weight down to 60Lbs including ballast weight of about 8lbs. Usually with the 93 lbs uv-26 I would bring it close as possible to shore and then open the cone to connect power and final oring check...

    Actually I don’t think it is hard to do. I will be removing 10 inches from the hull which eliminates about 32lbs of buoyancy and thus reducing the weight to a +/- 60lbs dpv, I will still have to add about 10+ lbs at the nose of dpv. This is plenty of weight to play with for trim balancing. I...

    My motor is 2010. I will dismantle and verify that the leads are crimped and not welded.
