How to Keep Your E-Scooter Running Optimally

Electric Scooter Maintenance

Just like a car or any motor vehicle, electric scooters similarly require maintenance. The recommended maintenance cycle should be done every 4-6 months. Do inquire about our inhouse service and maintenance package.

Motor

Brushless motors popular in Inokim Quick and IMAX S1+ will require cleaning and lurbication. Dust and dirt typically accumulates inside the motor and requires a disassembly to clean out the dust and dirt.

Tires

Most electric scooter tires need to be changed after one year or roughly 1500km. Unlike car tires, which can last for 50,000km or more, electric scooter tires are not built that durably given its small size.

HOW DO THEY WORK?

Electric scooters (or escooters) operate using a hassle brushless hub motor that is built into the wheel. The drive train system is virtually invisible to the naked eye. It uses a lithium based battery (most often Li-Ion) as its source of power, the same kind of batteries that power your hand phone and laptop.

The hub motor does all the work for you at the press of a button or throttle. The only skills requirement is that you have some bicycle balancing skills. 

You control the speed of your electric scooter at your will, through a speed control throttle at the handlebar, providing you smooth acceleration.

Our electric scooters can carry you for a distance of 30-40 km on one charge, enabling you to travel for hours. 

Difference between cheap electric scooter vs the premium models?

The difference lies in the built quality, performance and reliability. The batteries of cheaper electric scooter models do not have the capability to last more than 6 months whereas the more premium batteries can typically last up to 2 years. 

The built quality of cheaper models is also poorer in that the aluminium alloy used is of a cheaper quality and not manufactured as well as the higher quality materials. This results in hairline cracks which leads to easier breakage of the frame components.
