When you choose an illustrious electric scooter from Electric Scooter Kids, you always want to make sure your electric scooter is at full capacity, fully charged and ready to go at any time. This means you will have to subject it to occasional charges to keep it fit and ready for business. Once you have figured out the process (see our answer on “Where can I charge my electric scooter?” for further details), you can arrange to have your e-scooter charged.

On average, you’ll find that the most widely used e-scooter will take between 3 to 8 hours to fully charge up to 100%. The most regular and budget electric scooters will usually take about 5 hours to charge up on average, and top of the line models will take up to 6 hours and 40 minutes to charge, depending on the level of voltage the e-scooter packs. Once the light on your electric scooter is green, it is letting you know that it is at full power and ready to go. You will find that your e-scooter has a lifespan of about 2 hours before it needs charging again, with riding at constant speeds lasting up to about 50 minutes. Riding in power saving mode can increase the lifespan of your electric scooter to 6 hours.

It’s also best to make sure you don’t leave your scooter plugged in for too long, say, over 8 hours unchecked, as this can have some unexpected consequences. Although Razor Power Core scooters come equipped with overcharge prevention technology, so you seldom need to worry about overcharge. If ever you need further information on electric scooter charge times and lifespans, don’t hesitate to ask our team or, if your model comes equipped with one, check the calculator on your electric scooter which can give you exact measurements and timing.
