Lightbulb i167 Lithium-Ion battery upgrade

I have an I-series i167 Segway, purchased in 2004. It's been in the shed for a few years and now the battery is not charging. I heard that it is possible to get the new Lithium batteries installed if you upgrade to firmware version 14.0.

My question is, if the original batteries are flat and not serviceable, then how is it possible to install the firmware for the new ones?

You could always borrow a set of batteries from a local Segway owner/dealer.
That would allow you to power up your machine.

Then you will need to do the firmware update.

Originally only Segway ( online ) plus special equipment at the local dealer could do this.
Now that Segway are no longer in business, i am unsure how this might work.
Others may be able to answer that for you.

Good Luck

Thanks, Michael. I added another post today about my trip up to Burleigh Heads to Segway Australia.
