Electric Scooter Batteries

Electric Scooter Batteries

Electric scooter batteries are crucial components that directly impact performance, range, and overall rider experience. While manufacturer listings often boast impressive battery specifications, reality sometimes falls short of these claims. Many manufacturers advertise electric scooters with high-capacity batteries, promising extensive ranges on a single charge. However, in real-world usage, factors such as rider weight, terrain, speed, and weather conditions can significantly affect battery performance. Riders often find themselves achieving shorter distances than advertised. As a rule-of-thumb, we like to recommend that a scooter will likely travel about 50% of the distance that is advertised on a single charge. For example, if a scooter advertises 30 mile range, then 15 miles is a more realistic expectation. 

Moreover, riders may experience diminished battery performance during the lifetime of a scooter. Out of the box, the scooter may have gone 15 miles on a single charge, but after a year of use, it may only go 10 miles. It is important to factor these decisions in when choosing the best scooter for you.
