EQ 003 – Niro EV hood struts 8 months later

From EV-olution.

EV-olution Quickies Episode 003 shows you how the AliExpress Niro gas hood struts have held up after 8 months of use, including a winter. They are good, but not perfect, and I corrected the issues in less than 30 minutes. Watch this video to find out the good and the bad about the Xiang-Chang hood struts I bought on AliExpress in December 2020.

EV-olution Quickies is a new series that answers viewer questions, gives updates on previous videos and product reviews, and more. I hope you like this new series; it should allow me to release videos more frequently and still be able to produce my regular EV-olution Show videos.
