Frequently asked questions
Where can I buy?
Here (Stromboot GmbH) or from your trusted dealer.
When can I buy?
What is the range in stagnant waters?
That depends on the sun, the position of the sun, the load and the speed. At level 4 of the VX54e is in sunshine up to 10h drive possible - only with battery 3h. Thus, you can manage up to 40 km per day. Of course you can also use the paddles .... With wind from the front, the route is reduced.
What regulations I have to fill?
There are many shipping regulations in Germany. In Mecklenburg-Western Pomerania, a two-sided lettering (your address) of the houseboat with 10 cm letters suffices. There is no driving license and approval necessary. However, get your first experiences on a paddling tour with instruction before you set on water with the eWalker. Stay on the shore. Seek protection in dangerous weather. In storm (over wind force 3) you stay ashore.
Can I rent the eWalker?
Momently not. Ask your kayak rentals?
How long does the air last with one air filling?
The dropstitch material consists of 0.9 mm thick UV-stabilized PVC, which can be inflated to 0.9 bar. At 0.4 to 0.5 bar, the eWalker is sufficiently stable. The air is enough for two weeks. Fill with air only on the shore, not while driving.
How long is the time of living?
When stored in a dry place above 0° C when rolled (not folded crosswise) 10 years are no problem (1 season per year use). The lithium battery lasts 1500 full cycles. With partial load, there are much more.
Why do we use the expensive Lithium battery?
Lithium batteries are half as heavy as lead-acid batteries. Lithium batteries can be charged and discharged in one hour without changing the capacity of the battery. Lead-acid batteries do not like fast-charging and no complete discharge. If they are charged too fast, they have only 50% of the nominal capacity. Lithium batteries store solar energy much more efficiently. 10h driving time are only possible with a lithium battery.
