The electric scooter has become a popular accessibility and transportation option for adults and a great activity alternative for children as well. The advantage of using this innovation is its low carbon footprint, maneuverability and affordability. Its main edge is that the electric scooter is able to operate continuously for a good period of time. This brings us to the question that many electric scooter owners ask – why do I need a spare or replacement battery for my electric scooter?
As an electric scooter owner, it is a must to know how many hours you can ride your scooter after a full charge. That way you won't have to deal with running out of juice midway while on a trip. Battery life depends from brand to brand and relies on a number of factors.
Having a reliable replacement electric scooter battery is a must for uninterrupted travel or nonstop fun and activity. There is no worse damper than having to drag your scooter instead of you riding it!
Our usual brand-new scooter battery's charging and discharging sequence range from 300 to 400 times only. On a regular usage, the battery will last for up to three years. A replacement battery becomes necessary as the number of charging cycles completed increases with the performance decreasing after each succeeding charge.
Although the number of minutes you can expect from an average scooter will vary depending on the type, make, model, battery power and your personal usage, it is safe to say that battery life does goes down as the days roll by. For example, the replacement battery for TURBOANT X7 electric scooter enables a range of up to 16 miles on a 4-6 hour full charge.
Aside from normal wear and tear, there are some bad practices that that shorten and harm your electric scooter battery and make it die faster. Here are some of these most common practices and how to fix them.
A very common cause of early electric scooter battery deterioration is overcharging them. Although there are modern safety mechanisms that prevent the battery from overcharging, these can still fail if the owner persists in just leaving the battery to charge for an extended time period without monitor. Always keep tabs on your electric scooter while it charges and know the average time it needs.
A broken or worn charger or one with an incompatible power level (usually with a higher power level attributed to the charger) causes the battery a lot of damage. The proper charging time for your electric scooter battery is always indicated on the User's Manual. Look it up and follow the charge times. It is deemed best to follow instructions and charge accordingly.
For instance, with 4 to 6-hour full charge, the Turboant X7 scooter battery has a travel range of up to 16 miles! This is truly good mileage, a combination of portability and performance.
Though not as common as overcharging, undercharging your scooter battery also causes a host of problems towards battery life. Denying the scooter battery, the necessary full charge and unplugging the charger before the light turns green will lead to electrical failure at times. This is also true when we forget to recharge the battery periodically while in storage. The battery does deplete even while it is not being used so charging your electric scooter battery in regular time intervals is important.
To ensure that your battery is in tiptop shape, care for it as you care for your electric scooter body. The simplest and most basic tip is sometimes something that is always forgotten – Always make sure that your scooter is turned off when not in use and is disconnected from the power adapter.
In keeping our scooters clean, a damp cloth is the best cleaning agent. Never immerse your scooter in water nor should you apply any oils on its surface.
Temperature is very important for battery longevity. Aside from keeping the battery in a safe place, make sure they are not store in cold or freezing temperatures since this causes considerable battery damage. Do not charge batteries as well if the temperature is below 50F(10C).
Even if the garage is an optimum storage for your scooter and its battery, always move them to a warmer spot when the temperature drops. Your electric scooter and battery must also be kept away from inclement weather such as heavy rains and snow.
Remember to charge your scooter battery fully before storage. Also, charge it again after a month in storage to prevent premature capacity deterioration.
Our driving habits also matter to scooter battery life. Keeping riders within the recommended weight limit of scooter capacity, having tires properly inflated and keeping to flatter roads and surfaces all help extend the battery life. Correct scooter practices reduce battery strain and extend the life of both scooter and battery.
As safety is always our main concern, do not store your electric scooters of replacement batteries near magnetic devices, electrical fields or conductive materials as the batteries will lose their charge fast.
