Ya know, the Black one is only in V2 and the car can only use V2 0 black or white.

Here’s an unboxing and setup video for you!

Really good video. Can’t wait to see part 2

Mine is allegedly on a truck for delivery. Fingers crossed.

Mine too

How long for full charge?

Depends on which battery bank they gave you.

One is smooth on one side, has a 3-digit display of battery percentage, and has the USB connectors one over the other. This one will recharge @ maybe 10% an hour on a 1A source. A 2A source will not make it faster.

One has grooved lines on both sides, a 4-dot display, and the USB connectors are side-by-side. That one should recharge twice as fast on a 2A source. Even though you can’t see the battery percentage, that would be about 10% every half hour.

Some other things about the banks: They both turn off with a double-click of the power switch. You can also turn off the car by unplugging it. The battery will turn off in 30 seconds when there is no current draw.

Both have type-C ports too. On the 3-digit percentage bank the type-C port is input-only. On the 4-dot bank it is bidirectional.

Also, it doesn’t matter what USB port you plug the car into on either bank.

Is there going to be a part three video where you get frustrated at it.

Hahahaha - maybe - or he’ll cross-compare with one of his other RC cars

For those of us who won a Wyze car, rather than ordered one, will we get shipping notices? I’d like to know when to expect delivery, as we are moving this week

Congratulations on winning a car!

I would hit up Wyze support or perhaps update your shipping to somewhere you can access regardless of when it is shipped for the time being.

Try responding to the direct message the WYZE team member that contacted you about the win in the original thread?

Regular login worked for us. But make sure you’re not running the beta firmware on the v2, or it will need to have the Firmware Flashed to a lower “official release” to work.

We made a video on the Wyze Car for our YouTube page, it’s amazing and a lot of fun.
