This guide led me to buy a power supply, . . . and both Segways are up and running now!
I'm hoping this will work on my i2SE batteries.

Default Slow Trickle-Charge

I have the LiIon batteries trickle-charged to 60 V at 100mA, but the amperage is taking a while to reach 0; one pack is now hovering at 0.019A about an hour after reaching 60V. Wondering if it's okay to go ahead and re-connect them to the Segway and try to effect the charging there?

What is the result of installing on the base?

Thanks for pdf ,Instead of using nails I just clipped my power supply clips
to my multimeter jumpers instead and used the multimeter probes. It took about 5 minutes to charge to 60vdc..

Yes. The goal is to give it enough of a float charge so the segway charger can detect the battery and start charging it. I've read posts that say 48v should be enough to do that although I haven't tested it out.

Should be good enough to try letting the segway charger do its thing.
Sorry for the super delayed post
