Scooter Battery Information.
electric scooter, electric ATV, and electric bicycle
batteries are of the Sealed Lead Acid type (SLA) and are maintenance
free. Meaning you never need to add water or acid booster because the
battery is "sealed".
Being "sealed" also means if you turn the battery on its side or end
the acid won't spill out.
All single, SLA type, electric scooter batteries are 12 volt.
An electric scooter with a volt rating of 12 volts has 1 battery.
An electric scooter with a volt rating of 24 volts uses 2 batteries
wired in series.
A scooter with a 36 volt rating uses 3 batteries wired in series, 48
volt rating has 4 batteries wired in series and so on.
is the indicator of how much electric power can be supplied to the
system by a single battery. If a battery has an amp rating of 7 amps it
means that single battery can provide 7 amps of electric power to the
electric scooters system. Two 7 amp batteries would provide 14 amps,
three 7 amp batteries would deliver 21 amps and so on. Battery amperage
ratings are very important in determining how far and how fast an
electric scooter will go.
Charging Your Electric
You should recharge your electric scooters batteries every time you use
you have completed assembly do not ride your electric scooter
until the initial charge has completed. This could take 6 hours or
more. (It’s best to let it charge for up to 24 hours!) Every
charge afterward should be no less than 4 hours, even if your charger
shows a green light in less time.
battery charger used with this type of electric scooter will have a
green light that comes on indicating the batteries are fully recharged.
This green light will light up when the charger senses a good surface
charge and does not mean the batteries are indeed,
fully charged. Let the batteries charge for at least 4 hours after the
green light comes on to ensure the batteries are fully charged.
Electric scooter battery life is expressed in "recharge cycles"
Charging a battery from zero charge to full charge is 1 recharge
An example would be, an electric scooter battery that has a rating of
300 recharge cycles means the battery can be recharged from zero charge
to full charge 300 times.
If you use only half of the available charge, you can get up to 600-700
cycles out of that same battery.
Battery life is dependent on how often you use it and how
deeply you discharge it.
you are storing your electric scooter, electric ATV or
electric bicycle for a long period of time, charge the electric scooter
batteries for at least 4 hours every month
After storage, charge the electric scooter battery again for up to 24
hours before you ride it.
For longest battery life during storage, run your electric
scooter for about 10 minutes every 2 weeks and recharge the batteries
afterwards for more than 4 hours. (Even if the charger light is solid
green). Doing this can dramatically increase the life of your electric
