Electromake Tindie Accelerometer Issue

Dear sir/madam,

I need some technical help. I bought your accelerometer:


and amended your example code to suit my purpose. You can find the code here:


I tested the accelerometer on a car, decelerating from 20m/s to 0m/s in around 1s.
The code writes data every t=1s. Assuming v=0m/s, and using the formula a=(v-u)/t, we get a=-u. Since I am using the Euclidian distance, I am ignoring negative signs.

However, the highest value that the accelerometer can give me is a= 2m/s^2, when I should be getting >10m/s^2. Can you help me if I am doing something wrong? Thank you. [Sent from 3 axis USB accelerometer page]

Hey WeiHanGan,
