Battery Charger Owners Guide
Always plug the battery charger into the electric
scooter, bike, or go kart before plugging into wall outlet.
When charging is complete unplug charger from wall outlet before
unplugging from scooter or bike.
To get the most life
out of your batteries recharge them as soon as possible after
every ride, even very small rides. Leaving a scooter battery in
a partially discharged state lowers the
useful life of the battery.
When a an electric scooter, bike, or go kart is in
storage or not being used frequently recharge the batteries at least
every 30 days.
The battery chargers sold on this page are designed for SLA
batteries. Any brand of SLA battery charger may be used on any
electric scooter, bike, or go kart that uses SLA batteries as long as the
Voltage, Amperage, Connector, and the connectors Pin Polarities
are the same as the vehicles original battery charger.
battery chargers such as the ones that we sell are designed so that they will not
charge defective SLA batteries. This is a safety feature. If a
defective SLA battery is attempted to be charged it could
overheat and melt or damage the equipment that it is located inside of.
Good SLA batteries
bounce back above their rated Voltage level within a few minutes
after being discharged. If a SLA battery's Voltage does not
bounce back above its rated Voltage level within a few minutes
after being discharged then it is usually considered defective
or worn out.
Sometimes riders and rental stores want to use their
electric scooters, bikes, or go karts for more than one battery cycle per day so
they use battery chargers with a higher Amp rating than the
original battery charger. These quick rate battery chargers are
typically have twice the Amp rating of the original charger and recharge most
battery packs in 2-3 hours, however they will slightly lower the
longevity of the battery pack when compared to using a standard rate
To preserve the life
of the batteries use
a standard rate battery charger whenever possible. If a scooter is
driven for more than one battery cycle per day then using a
smaller battery charger overnight, and a larger battery charger
during the day is the best solution.
not use automotive or motorcycle battery chargers to recharge SLA
batteries. These type of battery chargers are designed for
charging wet cell lead-acid batteries and if used on SLA
batteries may cause permanent damage to the battery and
equipment due to overcharging and overheating.
