Ich habe bereits einen Artikel ├╝ber die Ger├╝chte f├╝r das S3 / X3 Update bzw. eine m├Âgliche Einf├╝hrung von S4 / X4 verfasst (in Englisch oder Deutsch)

Am 7. April stellte sich heraus, dass die vorhandenen S3- und X3-Modelle aktualisiert wurden. Was hat sich also ge├Ąndert, welche neuen Features hat das Rad bekommen ?

Die wichtigsten Verbesserungen, die VanMoof eingef├╝hrt hat:

  • Ein genauerer E-Shifter
  • Eine besser sichtbare Matrixanzeige (und eine verbesserte Farbe)
  • Pr├Ązise Standortverfolgung mit Apple Find My Network
Das e-mail von VanMoof

Last but not least gibt es weitere Verbesserungen an den Aktualisierungsmodellen, wie zum Beispiel:

  • verbesserte Verkabelung und neue Tasten
  • Kotfl├╝gel und Klappen
  • Radfarbene Designpedale

VanMoof hat au├čerdem ein neues Firmware-Update gesendet, das darauf hinweist, dass ein zweiter Akku vorhanden sein wird. Die Hardware des Aktualisierungsmodells unterst├╝tzt das Anbringen einer zweiten externen Batterie als Range Extender. Der Versionsverlauf der Firmware V. 0.1.07-BMS zeigt:

  • behebt das EMF-Problem
  • bereitet sich auf die zweite Batterie vor

Es gibt bereits einige Anbieter wie VanMoof, Chipolo und Belkin, die das U1 (unterst├╝tzt Ultra-Wideband-Technologie) in ihre Ger├Ąte integrieren.

All electric bikes from VanMoof have an integrated battery in the down tube of the frame. ItÔÇÖs fixed and can only be removed for servicing or replacement.

Until today it was only possible to charge the bicycles using the power adapter delivered with the bicycles. This power adapter is about 3,3 meters long, naturally, you need to plug one side to a power outlet in and the other side to the bicycle. The charging port of the bicycle is below the top tube.

Today (20.04.21), VanMoof revealed the long-expected Powerbank by updating the website. They also uploaded a couple of videos on Youtube such as a Powerbank advertisement and how to attach the Powerbank to the S3 or X3 which were already mentioned in this article.

As the VanMoof website claims: the removable PowerBank gives you up to 100 km extra range on your rides and makes it possible for you to charge your e-bike whenever, wherever.

Powerbank is probably a gamechanger because until today potential customers with no access to a power outlet were forced to pick another e-bike brand.

Now, owners can charge the Powerbank at any power outlet then attach it to the charging port of the bicycle, turn it on, and in about 3 hours they are going to have a fully charged VanMoof e-bike.

On the other hand, itÔÇÖs also a dynamic range extender. According to the Verge review of the VanMoof Powerbank, it seems to be possible to charge the main battery while riding the bicycle. However there is one point to consider, the user should ride the bicycle in economy mode (assist levels 1ÔÇô2) otherwise the consumption will always be higher than the supply the Powerbank provides.

To double the distance of your bicycle trips, the powerbank is essential. However it comes with long waiting times, today (20.04.21) delivery times are up to 10ÔÇô12 weeks.

If this is the product, you were waiting for to jump on an S3 or X3 then better consider acting fast to give your bicycle order bundled with the powerbank.

Tip:┬áTo get ÔéČ100 / $100 / ┬ú95 off on the Powerbank, Accessories, or Peace of Mind services on a new S3 or X3 order, copy the following VanMoof discount code and apply it during the checkout:┬á

Meanwhile, the internet is divided with different views, some owners are happy to have the extension capability, whereas others think that the addition of the powerbank doesnÔÇÖt fit well with the overall beautiful design.

Additionally, the powerbank doesnÔÇÖt support the previous models such as the S2 and X2. It is not clear whether the limitations are due to the electronics inside the smart cartridge or this is simply a marketing strategy to drop the support on older models to push sales of the newer models.

Anyway, weÔÇÖll learn more about the range after first deliveries and real world use of powerbank.

There is already an article about the rumors going around regarding the S3/X3 refresh or a possible S4/X4 introduction. Check the previous articles in German and English.

On April 7th, it turned out to be a refresh on the existing S3 and X3 models. So what has been changed, what kind of evolution the humble bike had?

Credits: VanMoof

The major improvements VanMoof implied in the official email received by some of the S3/X3 order owners are:

  • A more accurate E-shifter
  • A more visible Matrix Display (and an improved color)
  • Precise location tracking using the Apple Find My Network
the email from VanMoof

Last but not least there are other improvements on the refresh models such as:

  • improved cabling and new buttons
  • mudguards and flaps
  • body-colored, new design pedals

VanMoof also sent a new firmware update which indicated that there will be a second battery. The refresh model hardware supports the attachment of a second external battery as a range extender. The version history of the Firmware V. 0.1.07-BMS indicates:

  • fixes back EMF issue
  • prepares for the second battery

Until today, Apple FindMy was supporting to add and locate Apple Devices and Persons using Apple devices. Starting from April 2021, 3rd party hardware also became part of the network.

There are already some vendors like VanMoof, Chipolo, and Belkin, integrating the U1 (supports Ultra-Wideband Technology) into their devices.

How itÔÇÖs going to work with VanMoof, watch the video below.Connecting the VanMoof S3 or X3 with the Apple Find My appÔÇŐÔÇöÔÇŐCredits: VanMoof

Sadly, VanMoof customer support made it clear (over the official Instagram and Twitter social media accounts) that older S3/X3 models are not suitable to have the Find My feature as an upgrade. We donÔÇÖt know yet, whether it will be the same for the second battery extension.

Almanya’da Yat─▒r─▒m Yapmak; Hisse Senedi, ETF, Varant Al─▒m Sat─▒m─▒

Almanya’da yat─▒r─▒m yapmak i├žin, ilk ├Ânce bir banka hesab─▒na ihtiyac─▒n─▒z olacak, size tavsiyem Almanya’da Banka Se├žimleri yaz─▒s─▒n─▒ okuman─▒zd─▒r. Pek vaktiniz yoksa, hesab─▒n─▒z─▒ buraya t─▒klayarak ing-diba.de a├žabilirsiniz.

Paran─▒z─▒ de─čerlendirmek i├žin kullanabilece─činiz belli ba┼čl─▒ yat─▒r─▒m ara├žlar─▒ndan haberdars─▒n─▒z. Bunlardan en ├žok kullan─▒lanlar─▒; hisse senetleri (Aktien), ETF (Exchange Traded Funds – Borsa Yat─▒r─▒m Fonlar─▒) ve Varantlar (Optionsschein)’d─▒r. E─čer bu ara├žlar─▒ ve nas─▒l kullan─▒ld─▒klar─▒n─▒ bilmiyorsan─▒z, o zaman size tavsiyem, bu yat─▒r─▒m elemanlar─▒n─▒n nas─▒l kullan─▒ld─▒─č─▒n─▒ ├Â─črenmeniz olacakt─▒r. Aksi taktirde fark─▒nda olmadan, yanl─▒┼č bir talimat vererek, para kayb─▒na neden olabilirsiniz.

Ama hay─▒r, zaten bu ara├žlardan haberdars─▒n─▒z ve al─▒m/sat─▒m yapmak istiyorsunuz. O zaman bir depo (Depot) a├žman─▒z gerekecek, hesab─▒n─▒z hangi bankada olursa olsun farketmeksizin  ing-diba.de Depot ├╝zerinden, ya da Trade Republic ├╝zerinden deponuzu a├žabilirsiniz.

Deponuzu bu ba─člant─▒lar ├╝zerinden a├žarsan─▒z, belli avantajlara sahip olacaks─▒n─▒z. ├ľrne─čin, Trade Republic ├╝zerinden ilk al─▒m/sat─▒m─▒ ger├žekle┼čtirdi─činiz zaman 15ÔéČ gibi bir avans, benzer ┼čekilde ing-diba.de Depot ile ilk 10 al─▒m/sat─▒m i┼čleminde indirim kazan─▒rs─▒n─▒z.

Her iki platformda da yukar─▒da bahsedilen yat─▒r─▒m ara├žlar─▒n─▒ bulabilecek ve paran─▒z─▒ de─čerlendirmeye ba┼člayabileceksiniz.

Ancak, dikkat etmeniz gereken bir husus daha var. Yat─▒r─▒m yapt─▒─č─▒n─▒z ara├žlardan kazan├ž sa─člarsan─▒z, o zaman Almanya’da belli y├╝zdeler ile vergi ├Âdemeniz gerekecektir. ├ľrne─čin, hisse senetlerinden kazan─▒lan kar─▒n %25 gibi bir b├Âl├╝m├╝ sat─▒m i┼člemi yap─▒l─▒rken, vergi olarak kesilecektir.

Almanya’da yasal olarak oturuma sahip her bireyin y─▒ll─▒k olarak 801 ÔéČ vergiden muaf olarak kazan├ž sa─člama imkan─▒ vard─▒r. Ancak dikkat ediniz, bu vergi muafiyetine sahip olmak i├žin bankan─▒z ya da deponuz ├╝zerinden “Freistellungsauftrag” yapman─▒z gerekecektir. Bunu unutmaman─▒z─▒ tavsiye ederim.




G├╝n├╝m├╝zde pop├╝ler yat─▒r─▒m ara├žlar─▒ndan bir di─čeri de kripto para birimleridir. Vergilendirme a├ž─▒s─▒ndan da daha avantajl─▒ olan bu yat─▒r─▒m arac─▒n─▒ tercih ederseniz, o zaman Kripto Para ÔÇô Bitcoin, Ethereum, Litecoin ve di─čerleri yaz─▒s─▒n─▒ okuyabilirsiniz.

─░stanbul Trip – Interactive Google Maps with Tips

Breakfast @ Bosphorus
Here is a nice restaurant called S├╝ti┼č, the opportunity to have a wonderful breakfast. I suggest you to eat “Kar─▒┼č─▒k Menemen”.

Walk 4 FSM @ Bosphorus
FSM, Fatih Sultan Mehmet stands for the name of the 2nd bosphorus bridge in town. Here after your breakfast I advice you to have a walk and watch the beautiful FSM bridge.

Breakfast @ Ortak├Ây
Here in Ortak├Ây you will find wonderful cafes, restaurants to stay, chill, eat and enjoy. With the beautiful sea view enriched by the Ortak├Ây Mosque at the side. Take some photos with the Bosphorus Bridge and Ortak├Ây Mosque in the background. Magically all photos seems really nice at this location.

Bosphorus Boat Tour
Here is the location where you can take a Bosphorus Boat Tour, it is a nice 1-hour trip the boat goes till FSM bridge and returns back. Costs approximately 5ÔéČ per person. However there is no guidance, so you should take your Istanbul Guide with you.

Night Life in ─░stanbul is cool
I strongly advice you to go to Reina, it’s a very nice night club. In top 3 locations for night life. Remind the dresscode, so take care of your outfit and shoes.

Dolmabah├že Place – a must see
Here you will find Dolmabah├že Place, the largest place in Turkey, very nice place to see and witness the close history. Here you will find scenes from Mustafa Kemal Atat├╝rk’s (founder of the modern republic of Turkey) life.

Another Turkish tradition finds itself a new identity here in Tophane. The district where you will find many Nargile (waterpipe) Houses. I don’t advice you to try Alibaba VIP, try somewhere else.

Here you can take the tram to the direction Zeytinburnu in order to reach Sultanahmet, place where you will find the mosques and the basilica cistern. One way costs 50cents per person.

Hagia Sofia Mosque
Here is the famous Hagia Sofia Mosque Museum, one person costs 10ÔéČ for a visit.

Remember the mosque is open for visit until 16:00.

Sultanahmet Mosque
Here is the Sultanahmet Mosque, entrance is free, remember that it’s a must-see location. I believe you will like it.

Basilica Cistern
Here is a interesting location to see, a visit costs 5ÔéČ per person. Very nice location, you can see statues of Medusa at the end of your tour inside.

The Grand Bazaar
I haven’t seen any other indoor bazaar like this one before. You can find really nice local jewellery, leather, carpets and any other products here. The prices are relatively acceptable but in any case worth to bargain.

Rumeli Hisar─▒ and Museum
Here you can find the ruins of a castle. It’s very nice to watch the bosbhorus from here. There is museum located inside the walls. I haven’t been there but heard that it’s very nice.

Fish 4 Dinner?
If you want to eat some fish for dinner. You can try the “Babal─▒k” restaurant which is located right at this spot. Remember to talk to them in advance and agree on the price of the fish that you’d like to eat and tell them that you deny paying service and kuver. ­čÖé Right in front of the restaurant under the triangular roof a fish market is located. So you can see the prices and types of fishes in advance. Rak─▒ & Barbun is a good choice!

Leb-i Derya Bar Resturant
On this street there is a very nice Bar Restaurant called Leb-i Derya where you can have a nice dinner, enjoying the great view. I strongly recommend you to go there. Reserving a table in advance would be really good. http://www.lebiderya.com/lebiderya/eng/ana1.html

Hamburg’u gezmek

Madem Almanya’ya geliyorsunuz ba┼čka ├╝lkelere gitmenize gerek yok. Hamburg’dan ba┼člayacaksan─▒z geziye o zaman mutlaka Hamburg’u gezin ├žok g├╝zel yerler var.

Ben buradan size bir ka├ž ├Âneri yazmaya ├žal─▒┼čay─▒m.

Hamburg Sanat M├╝zesinde ├žok g├╝zel sergiler oluyor, gelmeden 1-2 hafta ├Ânce bak─▒n http://www.hamburger-kunsthalle.de/

Hamburg’a gelince zaten Rathaus (city hall) ve ├ževresini gezersiniz.

Rathaus’a 10-15 dakika y├╝r├╝me mesafesinde St. Nicolas kilisesi var. Kilisenin kulesine ├ž─▒k─▒p t├╝m ┼čehri tepeden izleyebilirsiniz. Hamburg II. D├╝nya Sava┼č─▒nda bir gece boyu bombalanm─▒┼č ve t├╝m ┼čehir yanm─▒┼č o gece 50000den fazla insan hayat─▒n─▒ kaybetmi┼č. Kilisenin i├žerisindeki m├╝zeyi gezebilirsiniz, genelde her┼čey o konuya odaklanm─▒┼č.

Hamburg Almanya’n─▒n en b├╝y├╝k liman kenti oldu─čundan mutlaka tekneyle bir Elbe turu yapmal─▒s─▒n─▒z.

┼×ehrin i├žinde bir b├Âl├╝m var, HafenCity (liman kenti) diye ge├žiyor oralar─▒ gezin, k─▒rm─▒z─▒ tu─čladan yap─▒lm─▒┼č bir s├╝r├╝ bina kanallarla ayr─▒lm─▒┼č. Ayn─▒ b├Âlgeye Emporio diye bir bina var, zaten g├Âreceksiniz en y├╝ksek bina, tepesine Faz─▒l Say ├ž─▒k─▒p piyano ├žalm─▒┼čt─▒r. ­čÖé

E─čer model trenler ilginizi ├žekerse, kesinlikle Miniatur Wunderland’a gidin, s├╝per! Bir s├╝r├╝ Avrupa ├╝lkesinin model model uygulamalar─▒ var. 5-10 euro bir giri┼č ├╝creti vard─▒r, g├Ârmeye de─čer. Hemen Miniatur Wunderland’─▒n yan─▒nda ├žok ├╝nl├╝ bir cafe var, ilgin├ž bir ortam─▒ vard─▒r, her yerde kahve ├žuvallar─▒ falan var, kahveleri direk orada ├Â─č├╝t├╝yorlar. De─či┼čik bir hikayesi vard─▒, ben ┼čimdi unuttum ama siz gidince ├Â─črenip, haf─▒zam─▒ tazelersiniz.

┼×ehrin i├žerisinde sava┼č zaman─▒ndan kalm─▒┼č Bunker’lar (u├žaksavar) var ben ilk g├Ârd├╝─č├╝mde t├╝ylerim diken diken olmu┼čtu. Gidip onlar─▒n i├žerisini gezebilirsiniz.

Hamburg’un ├╝nl├╝ redlight b├Âlgesinin ad─▒ Reeperbahn oraya gidip g├Ârebilirsiniz bir gece, ama baz─▒ hikayeler duydum, yan─▒n─▒za kad─▒nlar oturursa i├žki ─▒smarlamay─▒n, 100er 200er giydiriyorlarm─▒┼č.

Gece hayat─▒n─▒n en canl─▒ oldu─ču yerinin ad─▒ ‘Schanzenviertel’ orada e─členebilece─činiz g├╝zel barlar, diskolar var. Size tavsiyem ‘die herren simpel’ diye bir bar var, cuma ya da ctesi g├╝n├╝ oraya gidip mutlaka ‘Mojito’ i├žmeniz!

Bir ka├ž tane restoran ├Ânerebilirim. G├╝zel bir brezilya restoran─▒ biliyorum ad─▒ ‘panthera rodizio’ orada 35euroya falan s─▒n─▒rs─▒z men├╝ler var. S─▒n─▒rs─▒z ve lezzetli Et yemek isterseniz, mutlaka u─čray─▒n ama rezervasyon yapt─▒rmadan gitmeyin, yer bulunmuyor. Restoran’─▒n havas─▒da ├žok ho┼čunuza gidecek. Rathaus’un orda bir ortado─ču lokantas─▒ vard─▒ benim gitti─čim, ├žok g├╝zel yemekleri vard─▒ ama biraz tuzluydu. Gidince civardaki insanlara sorarsan─▒z g├Âsteriler eminim ki. Birde Rathaus’un oralarda yine ├žok ├╝nl├╝ bir cafe var, rathaus’u kar┼č─▒n─▒za al─▒p, sa─č taraftaki soka─ča do─čru y├╝r├╝d├╝─č├╝n├╝z de g├Âreceksiniz. B├Âyle mansende gibi bir yer.

Ben ┼čehri gezdim gezdim ama bitiremedim malesef.

Yine Hamburg’dan akl─▒ma gelenler olduk├ža yazar─▒m.
