How to Get Your E-Scooter Battery to Last Longer?

There are a number things you can do to keep your electric scooter battery running at optimum capacity for as long as possible, such as:

Keep Your E-Scooter Battery Charged

Get into the routine of charging your electric scooter battery every time you use it to prolong its life. Doing so will also mean you’re always ready for the next trip and don’t have to worry about how many miles you have left when it’s not on a full charge.

 

Top tip: When charging your battery after riding, you can do so immediately after a short ride but for a longer trip, be sure to wait at least 30 minutes for the battery to cool.

Top tip: Avoid a complete depletion of the battery and always try and always keep it over at least 10% charged at all times.

 

Use Compatible Components

If you have invested in a quality, best in class electric scooter like the Ampere Go, it is important to use compatible components, such as battery, accumulator and charger, to ensure performance is always at its peak.

Don’t Tamper With It

This is a risk to your own safety but this could also result in damage to your scooter’s battery which may affect performance.

How to Care for Your e-Scooter

Keep it Clean

Use a soft, damp cloth to clean your Ampere Go. It is important to avoid any corrosive solutions, such as alcohol, petrol or kerosene, to ensure the finish or paint of the scooter does not get damaged. For safety reasons, always ensure your scooter is switched off and that you are not charging the battery during cleaning.

Storing Your e-Scooter

When storing your electric scooter, be sure to do so in a cool, dry place. Extreme conditions can be harmful to your e-scooter, especially the battery, so storing inside at room temperature is advisable. Fortunately, the folding functionality of the Ampere Go makes it small and compact, perfect for saving space at home particularly if you live in a flat/apartment!

 

Top tip: Avoid leaving your e scooter, and particularly the battery, in the car during the summer as the heat can reduce the performance of the battery.

Scooter Servicing

Keep an eye on the brakes, tyres and folding aspects of the electric scooter. The Ampere Go is built to be robust and sturdy, using best in class parts, but like anything with moving parts, it’s important to check over everything every now and then to ensure things are running smoothly. With that in mind, be sure to get your electric scooter serviced regularly at your local dealer
