In this article, we’re gonna find out how to increase your electric scooter range. Electric scooters have been done a worthy part of the Electric Vehicles (EV) industry in the past few years.
Every electric scooter on the market has an advertised range. For e-scooters with a throttle, the manufacturer-advertised ride range is basically; how far you can get with the throttle alone under ideal conditions.
The best you can do range wise is to make sure your bike is set up as well as possible, and maybe the most notable thing is tire pressure.
Inflate the tires to its recommended pressure level
Have you ever tried riding on nearly flat tires? Yep, it’s difficult and slow. Before a ride of any distance, always try to pump-up your tires to the ideal pressure. It will make your ride more comfortable and efficient for sure.
Use Regenerative braking if it’s possible
If you have an electric scooter that has what’s called regenerative braking, which means that the energy built up through braking is fed back into the battery. Recharging it braking gently over some time. It’s going to give you more recharge than braking, hard and quick.
Try not to over-accelerate your electric scooter as it leads to the battery drain very fast. We don’t think you need to play Moto GP with your scooter.haha. Keep the speed at a normal stage and try to drive through smooth areas as much as possible. Therefore you can increase your electric scooter range.
Always try to ride without the extra kinds of stuff
We are not asking to ride with just your body :D. But keep in mind that the more weight you carry, the more power the motor takes. Of course, it will lower your e-scooter range.
Full charge the scooter before you ride
There is nothing to say further. A fully charged battery means the full range that scooters can get is possible.
Turn off the motor when it’s in idle state
Most of the people have a bad habit of keeping the scooter turned on even they are not riding, no matter if you ride or not. The battery is working for the motor and other modules such as tail lights etc. So it would be a good practice if you turn the motor (literally the scooter) when you not gonna ride for a few minutes.
