There aren't just electric vehicles and electric bikes generating buzz with commuters these days. Electric scooters are becoming an increasingly popular alternative to these expensive electric rides, as they are more portable and affordable.

A variety of lifestyles can be accommodated by electric scooters, which are suitable for short rides in the neighbourhood and long rides to and from work. 
Here's everything you need to know about the battery life of electric scooters.

Your electric scooter battery should last for a long time with proper care, even for years before you may need a replacement.

To maximize your scooter's battery life, follow these best practices:

  • Avoid overcharging
  • Store your scooter indoors
  • Keep the battery charged if you plan to store your scooter
  • Park your scooter in a dry place

Avoid overcharging

That means only recharging your scooter when the battery is dead or close to being completely drained.

Store your scooter inside, especially during cold weather

A well maintained battery can perform well even after many miles of riding.
Charge the battery after each ride to avoid draining the battery completely.

Keep the battery somewhat charged if you plan on storing your electric scooter

It can be harmful to your lithium-ion battery to fully deplete it before storing it, so we recommend keeping your scooter's lithium battery charged at 40% at a minimum. It should be fully charged before you ride it again. 

To help protect the scooter's battery from the elements while being stored, try to keep it at a climate-controlled temperature of 16°C.

Park your scooter in a dry place

While Newport Skate electric scooters are water-resistant, we don't recommend leaving them outside in the rain.

How long does an electric scooter charge last?

Your electric scooter's range varies with settings and environmental factors; actual results will vary.

Generally speaking, how long an electric scooter's charge lasts depends on factors like rider weight, number of charge cycles on the battery, and whether you ride it uphill.
