It is important to understand the factors that can affect battery life, if you want to maximize the power of the vehicle. Below are some of the most important issues to consider:

Rider's Weight

Your weight greatly affects the performance of the electric scooter. If you want to maximize its durability, get the most appropriate size for you. Because your weight adds resistance to the vehicle, the battery life shortens as you increase the weight load. If you are between 80 to 110 kilograms, then the standard vehicle is good enough for you. If you weigh more than this, ask your sales agent about the most applicable electric scooter fit for your size.


If you are traveling on flat land surfaces, the life of the battery can be at its best. However, if you live in a hilly area or you intend to go to elevated places, get a battery with at least 350 watts capacity. Otherwise, you will end up walking in the hill carrying the electric scooter with you.


The two or three-wheeled vehicle can go well in any weather. However, a too-hot or too-cold climate can reduce the range of your scooter. If you live in an area with all year round rain, look for the types markeded as water-resistant. Because if you get the standard type, the long-term exposure to water can cause damage to the motor and then, shorten its life span.

When buying the vehicle, one of your greatest considerations is the battery. Now that you know the factors affecting its life, you can better decide on the power of the battery you will need to sustain your electric scooter.
