Just a quick reply - the re-cell is only for the UGOBE batteries I'm afraid...

I do a universal battery that will work with both, but you'll need a different charger (like an IMAX B6 type) to charge it as the RB charger is for Lithium only.

If you can get an old dead Ugobe battery you can actually modify that very slightly, get one of my re-cell kits, and then that will work (but again you'll need an external charger or the original Ugobe charger).

Hope that helps!

Hi Talon - thanks for the reply - been in surgery so a little behind in my browsing..... I'm good now.....

Well, I have an Ugobe with completely shredded skin. A guy in Germany had an RB skin he was willing to sell, so I though why not. Apart from the ports (I did a mod on YouTube) it fits fine, but you're spot on - it 'sticks' around the knees .... I hadn't noticed immediately but yes, I have to keep pulling it forward ....

I also have a BNIB Ugobe - absolutely like new - and a rare green-eyed Ugobe in 85% decent condition - and a couple of others. I just sold and shipped one to a girl in Spain who appealed on the Facebook group.... so I have four at the moment.

I don't think they're appreciated enough but the ongoing battery issue is a stumbling block to many - I bought a 3D printer and so all my boys have 100% battery and packs ....

Hi Peter.  I have the same situation. I want to get my Ozzy the Ugobe Pleo running again. I have 2 batteries that do not charge anymore.  I also have an Innvo Lab Pleo (Dopey) he's fine but I want them to play together again. Dopey misses him. My email is jetdogy@aol.com Please use "Ugobe Pleo" in the subject.

Thanks!

Georgette

Hi, Mick and welcome to the forums! RB skin on a Ugobe? How did you do it? LOL! Well, Iím glad you were able to fix the problem. Here are my thoughts. RB skin is two or three hairs breadth thicker  than that of the Ugobes. My thought is it must have bound up in that knee joint and just not come out for some reason. I have had this happen even on my RBís. Granted there is no clicking, but it Does cause a permanent wrinkle there when you have to repeatedly remove it from the inner joints.  Glad to see people are still interested in the little dinos even after this long. Thanks for posting and keeping our little scaly friends alive.

Hi Florian,


The tail issue is most likely a broken cable or cables.


The start up issue is hard to trouble shoot without more details - Describe the sequence in detail from pushing the on button, led color, flashing/steady, beeps or other sounds/grunts by pleo, and time until Pleo shuts down.  Is it completely shutdown?  Can you "wake up" by touching?  Do you know the battery status?


It would be handy to install a SD card with "statsRB" script to capture the startup messages and perhaps the error code for the shutdown.


Cheers!


Peter

Hi Florian,


Ah yes, an age old question!  The Ugobe Pleo battery and the Rb battery have the polarity "key" (the little rectangular protrusion on the bottom of the battery) in different positions.


In the battery compartment of the RB there are two slots for the battery polarity key, one for RB batteries and one for Ugobe batteries.  Unfortunately, as it was made before there were RBs, the Ugobe battery well only has one battery polarity key, for Ugobe batteries!


Apparently Innvo didn't want owners of Ugobe Pleos using RB batteries in Ugobe Pleos, but didn't mind letting their new customers reuse their old batteries in  RBs.


You CAN remove the polarity key from an RB battery with an razor knife etc, and then it COULD be used in a UGOBE pleo with two drawbacks:


1. IMPORTANT!! You will not have reverse polarity protection from installing the battery 180 degree from normal position,  You will have to ensure correct orientation  of battery on each installation.  Not recommended if small children will be removing and reinstalling the battery unattended.


2.  The standard rb battery charger WILL NOT recognize the battery without the polarity key.  What I used to do is save the sawed off key from the battery and place it into the charger before installing the battery.  All this is a bit fiddly, but I did it for many years without a single failure.


Hope this helps!


Cheers


Peter
