Certification & Safety indications

 

The electric surfboard Waterwolf is a technologically mature device with a great many security components (temperature control, emergency shut-off system, protective band). However some safety measures have to be considered, particularly in connection with electronic components (battery, electric motor).

The boards entire circuit (propulsion systems, including battery and electronic device) is initially disconnected and will not be supplied with electricity until applying the emergency stop leash. 

The activation of the board (applying of the emergency stop leash and switching on the throttle-lever) may only be carried out when located in waters of 50cm depth minimum.

In general it has to be taken care that no objects/body parts are nearby the propulsion unit, respectively the propeller!  (Caution acute risk of injury!!) In addition an ample safe distance must be kept!

The electric surfboard Waterwolf is a motorized buoy, hence a life vest must be put on, furthermore it is recommended to wear a wetsuit (as protection from injuries and hypothermia in case of an unintended dismount).

In case of sudden danger (swimmers outside of the permitted swimming area, object in the water, or similar) eather the speed must be reduced immediately or the emergency stop leash must be pulled!

After the ride, before the battery is being exchanged or recharged, the board always must be deactivated.
(Pull emergency leash stop)

It must be pointed out specifically that for the most of the inland waters different shipping regulations for motorized water crafts exist, respectively watersports equipment. For further details on shipping regulations/authorization you are welcome to contact us.

 

Additional information about the handling of the Waterwolf lithium ion battery

All Waterwolf batteries are equipped with safety and performance electronics.

The electronics protect your battery from short circuit and over heating. The Waterwolf battery is filled with a spezial coating it is certified with UN-348ß measures.

All safety measures must be resspected so no water enters he battery case. Water entry, especially salt water entry can result in a short circuit of the battery.

Caution: Fire and Explosion hazard.

 

Following points must be respected when handling the Waterwolf battery

 

1). Before every use:, Check your battery for possible cracks and/or damages.

Always check the cable connectors in front of the battery case for a tight fit. If the cable is loose, please tighten the cable connectors. Case top must be secured manually and must be replaced if damaged.

Battery must be locked with the 4 fast locks to avoid the battery from falling when turning the board upside down. Battery and cables will be damaged on hard impact or weight strain.

 

2.) After each use: Remove the battery gently.

Caution:  The Battery connector must be dry at all times. Battery must be stored on a non flammable, or stone floor.

Caution: Battery cells get very hot during your ride. Batteries must cool down before being recharged.

3): Further notice: The rubber seal of the battery connector must be refreshed with silicone grease from time to time.

Caution: The power connector must remain dry and free of dirt at all times!Dirty or wet battery connectors can result in electronic failure of board and/or failure of the emergency switch. 

Caution: If battery connector is wet or dirty, your Waterwolf board can not be used- Clean  and dry connector propelry.

In case of  a hard fall of board or battery, the board and especially the battery must be checked for  damages.

Caution: Damaged batteries can not be reused.

 

 

Charging of the Waterwolf battery:

 

General information: The battery can be charged inside or separated from your Waterwolf board.

 

Caution: Always charge the battery in a safe environment ( there should be no flammable items near the battery during charging process). Never charge the battery inside any living space.

Damaged batteries create a safety hazard and cannot be recharged.

 

Note: The use of  the fast charging device heats battery cells to higher temperatures.

The battery takes more time to cool down than with the regular battery charging device.

Constant use of the fast battery charger reduces the life span of your waterwolf battery.

 

 

Storage:

Never store fully charged batteries in flammable environment. Empty batteries should be charged to 20% after riding before storing.

Charge your battery to full level only before riding. 

The best and safest way to store the waterwolf battery is in a non flammable aluminum box with granules.
