I need an EGO tool battery socket for an e-bike project. Anyone know where to get one... or have a dead tool for sale?
I just remembered I have a spare EGO charger. I have a big EGO charger that came with my EGO snow blower so I don't really need the small one that came with my leaf blower (that I purchased a few years before the snow blower). So I can maybe try to deconstruct the smaller charger for its socket.
Good point about the positive latch, guys. I am playing with prototyping a socket on my 3D printer. I am including the side ramps that snug the battery into the socket but I have to think about a way to positively secure the battery from backing out. There is always duct tape. :-) In any case, no hurry here what with the Polar Vortex and all.
I am truly thrilled to see Raylo's EGO Bike and the dialog to solve the docking socket. There's talk about a sprayer too. With blower and mower as inspiration, I too am conjuring up ways to employ EGO's phenomenal power platform. Legal liability and competitive considerations aside I was even thinking to ask if EGO could provide the docking interface. An unused charger? "Why didn't I think of that!" It's great to see the creative power of the community coming together. The Maker Movement is rooted in open source. Great job Expert Hack Raylo and thanks for sharing on Thingiverse.
