Standard Rate and Fast Rate Battery Charger Chart

 

Fast rate battery chargers should only be used with SLA (Sealed Lead Acid) battery packs. All other types of battery chemistries such as Li-ion, NiMH and LiFeP04 should only be recharged with the scooter's original battery charger or an OEM battery charger.


Standard rate battery chargers, the type that come with new scooters, can take up to 6-8 hours to recharge a *fully depleted electric scooter battery pack. To get more than one full battery cycle per day out of an electric scooter a fast rate battery charger is required. Fast rate battery chargers usually have around twice the Amp rating than the original standard rate battery charger has in order to recharge a *fully depleted battery pack in around 3-4 hours. Fast rate battery chargers will recharge most battery packs in half the time that a standard rate charger takes, however they will slightly lower the longevity of the battery pack compared to using a standard rate battery charger. Electric scooter battery packs require a minimum size battery charger to fully recharge them. The Amp rating of the scooter's original battery charger, or the standard rate charger ratings recommended below should the smallest Amp rating battery charger used on the scooter. Electric scooter batteries need to get a full and deep charge in order to have a long life. Using a battery charger with too low of an Amp rating will cause damage to the battery pack and shorten its life by not fully recharge it.


*When we say fully depleted we don't mean 100% discharged. The most that a SLA battery pack should be discharged is 80%. Discharging a battery pack more than 80% will shorten its lifespan. Both undercharging and over discharging will cause excessive oxidation to build up on a SLA batteries internal plates. The more oxidation that builds up on its plates the less power it will have and the less mileage range it will provide.
