I think it got a little pregnant. This is how new batteries are made now. You should make sure not to put a female battery next to a male battery next time.

The battery is either gassing due to an internal malfunction or the case itself is bulging due to excessive heat cycling. In either case it's a goner. Take it to a recycler. Good thing you ordered a new one. 2.5 yrs ain't bad. Did you replace it with an Odyssey or another Powersonic?

Another Powersonic. $49, plus about $10 shipping. Installed the new one this morning and I'm back in business.

Probably not excessive heat cycling - I don't actually engage the ESC very often. Maybe once a week. I know - anathema.

Just out of curiosity (and laziness): Does Odyssey make basically the same thing, but exact same dimensions?

These may be old. Hope it helps you. You could ask Shiv, contact Openflashtablet. I have found the OpenFlash guys provide poor service.


Thanks very much my friend! I will keep trying to get in touch with the openflash team to see if there are any newer versions. This is great help though, really appreciate it.

The Odyssey PC680 (and the MJ (metal jacketed) version)) are slightly longer and taller, but the same width as the Powersonic PSH12180.

Powersonic PSH-12180
- Length . 7.13”
- Height. 6.59”
- Width. 3”
- Weight. 14 lbs.(total)

Odyssey PC680
- Length . 7.15”
- Height. 6.65”
- Width. 3”
- Weight. 14.5 lbs.(total)

This is exactly why I sold it.
I hardly engaged it. It feels criminal to 100% - mash the throttle. Meanwhile, I am feeling the air restriction during normal driving conditions.
What amazing technology,.. just didn't work for me in this situation.

Those with the newer Partial Throttle FootSwitch (PTS) and/or PROcede controllers don't have this issue at all.

Don't know what you mean here as "drag reduction" tech built into earlier kits ensured "air restriction during normal driving" never happened.

Shame you didn't stick around. Everything you mentioned has been changed and/or upgraded. Still, this is bleeding edge tech. So folks that buy have to fully understand what they're currently getting. In your case, it sounds like it was a ver 1.0 kit which at the time was described as a "Full Throttle Supercharger". Newer kits have since evolved beyond that.

Honestly theres one kit that keeps being passed on that has been rewired by members that I think is not very good. The batteries are still being used too, I wish it would stop being passed on as it isn't representative of the current system.

Could be tuning as well. Going from NA tuned with the ESC to tuning that it changed my MAF scaling by 10%. After that was fixed in ecutek I got back the crisp throttle response. People using the OFT might not be so lucky unless they retune.

As most know I have the V1 kit it is weird going full throttle at 3k but you get use to it.

I still have my original v. 1 kit and even though I don't use it much, I love having it available when I need it. And then once a month or so I just kick it out on a favorite back road to make sure it's still working. I also don't understand the air restriction issue mentioned - I don't feel it.

Guess I've never upgraded because I'm so satisfied with my current setup. ESC, flex fuel kit and Ecutek tune.

Really? I activate mine all the time. A least a few times a day. Just quick 3-5 second bursts.

Hi guys,

I just finished installing my v3 kit. Voltmeter beeps upon starting, stays at 28.4. I checked all the connections and they are all good and I made sure they are as tight as possible. However, thr blower does not engage upon activation of the switch when I depress the throttle. When I am driving and engage full throttle, I can hear the clicks but feel nothing, nor does the volt meter readings change.

I am not sure where to start checking for faults. Upon inspection of the throttle switch all soldering points look solid, it is connected, the big red connectors are very tight, the 3 connections going into the blower have been attached as tightly as I can.

Any input is greatly appreciated.

Recheck your connections and check to see if the foot switch has a good ground. Maybe try it against a good known ground.

Also make sure all the wires are in the correct direction. Take pics?
