Mobility scooter

F.A.Q. 0

Sometime called a four-wheeler, the mobility scooter is a small electric vehicle for people with reduced mobility. Equipped with 4 wheels, the motor power can vary between 250W and 2000W, while the maximum speed varies between 8 km/h and 25 km/h. The mobility scooter is almost always equipped with a transport basket, either in the front or in the back. The larger models are often the most comfortable, however, they may be less practical for indoor use only, due to the larger dimensions.
The smaller models can usually be disassembled into a few pieces so that they can be easily transported in a vehicle from one place to another. On the other hand, since the size is smaller, they often have smaller wheels and are less ideal for outdoor use.
For more information on the products offered and their dimensions, please contact the sales department at option 2.

The mobility scooter, quite simply, runs on batteries. Generally, the number of batteries varies between 4 and 6. Here is then how the models are classified:

4 batteries of 12V: it is a scooter with 48V for a range of about 40km.
5 batteries of 12V: it's a scooter with 60V for a range of about 50 km.

You will have understood it thus, the more the number of batteries, the more the autonomy (on a recharge of battery) is big. As for the Wattage, it is the strength of the engine. The more powerful the vehicle is, the easier it will be when the road is inclined. To move forward, you have to turn the throttle, to brake you have to press the brake levers, like a bicycle. The scooter is always equipped with a front light, turn signals, brake lights, mirrors and a battery level indicator.
When the scooter is completely discharged, you must use the charger to plug it into a regular 120V outlet. It is recommended not to use an extension cord.

The batteries (4, 5 or 6) are connected in series. To connect the batteries in series, always reverse the polarity (+ and -) from one battery to the other, i.e. from positive to negative. In some cases, a vehicle may require both a series and parallel connection. For more information on batteries, see FAQ "A scooter, how does it work?"

The life of your batteries is about 250 to 300 charges. This is equivalent to about 3 years.

To keep your batteries in good condition, they should be recharged at least every month, even when you don't use them much or at all. A battery connected to a circuit discharges about 3% per day. So, after a month of inactivity, it will usually be flat. Never recharge batteries for more than 24 hours. In winter, you should follow this procedure as well. See also FAQ "What is the winter maintenance"

First of all, you have to understand that the life of your batteries is about 250 to 300 charges. Thus, each time you plug them in, you reduce their life span. For this reason, it is recommended to wait until your batteries are fairly discharged. To know the level of your batteries, rely on your indicator on the dashboard.
Attention: For an excellent management of your batteries, we recommend to manage your trips and to calculate the mileage (in an approximate way) in order to avoid running out of batteries during your trips.

For several reasons, it is not at all advisable to install more batteries on an electric vehicle than originally planned by the manufacturer or dealer. Indeed, this will significantly increase the weight of the vehicle, which may weaken the chassis.
However, if you absolutely want to increase the battery capacity of your vehicle, it is essential to never exceed the required voltage. Otherwise, you risk "shorting" the control box and even igniting the wiring.

A charger left on a charge for more than 24 consecutive hours can cause the batteries to swell. It is important to know that the charger does not stop charging until it reaches the required amperage level. This is why if one of the batteries is defective, it will cause an overcharge, which will result in overvoltage of the other batteries.

During the winter, it is best to keep the vehicle warm (at least above 5 degrees). Also, make sure to charge it every month, for a maximum of 15 hours. If you can't leave your vehicle in a warm place, you can always store it at our premises.

Since it's an electric vehicle, it doesn't do well with water. It is therefore recommended not to drive in the rain. On the other hand, if by misfortune you are on the road and a small shower appears, don't panic, it's no more serious than it needs to be. On the other hand, if it's a big shower, it is more prudent to find a shelter. We advise you to equip yourself with a protective cover.

No.
Generally, thefts tend to occur during the night, even if the device is equipped with or without a lock. In the event that there is no other alternative, we recommend covering the vehicle with a waterproof cover. This cover will protect your vehicle from the rain and will also keep it out of the eyes of thieves.

The air pressure inside the tires varies from vehicle to vehicle. In most cases, the information is visible on the tire as "PSI". Generally, the air pressure varies from 30 to 40 PSI.
Note that for better comfort, it is recommended to have a slightly lower air pressure in the front wheels than in the rear. Indeed, it is important to know that a high air pressure will increase the range, but will decrease the comfort of the driver. This rule also applies in the opposite case, where a low air pressure will increase comfort but decrease the range of the device.

Unfortunately, if you have lost the spare key you received when you purchased your vehicle, you will have to change the entire ignition of the vehicle. It is strongly recommended that you be prepared and leave a spare key at home.

Three wheeler

F.A.Q. 1

A 3 wheelers is equipped with :

an electric motor (not gasoline) and a rechargeable battery
a handlebar and a seat with a backrest
3 wheels that are in contact with the ground

In practice, the electric scooter differs from an electric scooter by its shape and its dimensions, and it is closer to a vehicle for people with reduced mobility. It still retains many of the characteristics of an electric scooter, including its maximum speed of 32 km/h, its handlebars and its hand brakes. For this reason, the scooter is appreciated by many, since it is more efficient and therefore more fun than a mobility scooter.

The same regulations apply as for an electric bicycle or scooter. It is therefore necessary to have a class 6D driver's license for the 14 to 17 age group only. 

The 3 wheeler is generally equipped with 2 batteries of 12 Volts and the wattage is between 250W and 2000W. It is a vehicle adapted for people with reduced mobility. The device moves forward and backward when pressure is applied to the arm installed for this purpose. When the pressure is removed, the vehicle brakes automatically thanks to the electromagnetic system.
It is usually equipped with a wheel to manage the speed, a transport basket, a swivel seat, a battery level indicator, a horn and lights.
When the batteries are empty, the vehicle must be recharged using the charger in a regular 120V outlet. It is recommended to avoid using an extension cord.

The batteries (4, 5 or 6) are connected in series. To connect the batteries in series, always reverse the polarities (+ and -) from one battery to the other, i.e. from positive to negative. In some cases, a vehicle may require both a series and parallel connection. For more information on batteries, see FAQ "A 3 wheeler, how does it work?"

Electric scooter

Officially called "electrically assisted bicycle" (EAB), the electric bicycle is equipped :

an electric motor (not gasoline) not exceeding 500 watts and a rechargeable battery. When the driver does not use the electric motor, the EAB must allow pedaling like a conventional bicycle
a handlebar and a pedal
2 or 3 wheels that are in contact with the ground

The smallest models can usually be disassembled into a few pieces so that they can be transported well in a vehicle, from one place to another. On the other hand, since the size is smaller, they often have smaller wheels and are less ideal for outdoor use.

It all depends on how it will be used. The gasoline scooter is a small, registered recreational vehicle, and as such, it can travel in traffic. However, it is not allowed to travel on highways and expressways.  The gas scooter allows you to travel longer distances and use the roads. It is therefore a fast and efficient means of transportation, which offers a very good autonomy at low cost. The electric scooter, on the other hand, is considered an assisted bicycle. This means of transportation allows you to move on bicycle paths (see F.A.Q. on this subject) and on the sides of roads. This vehicle is not registered and therefore does not run in traffic.
Thus, the electric scooter is practical for short distance trips (+-70km on a battery charge) and for the very low costs involved. You don't need plates, no insurance, no license and no gas! To conclude, if you are hesitating between buying a gas scooter or an electric scooter, you need to think about 3 things first: Your travel needs, the distance you think you need/want to travel and the costs involved.

The same regulations apply as for an electric bicycle or scooter. It is therefore necessary to have a class 6D driver's license for the 14 to 17 age group only. 

The electric scooter, simply works with batteries, the more the number of batteries is big, the more the autonomy (on a battery recharge) is big. As for the wattage, it is the strength of the motor.

The electric scooter is always equipped with a front light, turn signals, brake lights, mirrors and a battery level indicator.
When the scooter is fully discharged, use the charger to plug it into a regular 120V outlet. It is recommended not to use an extension cord.

The batteries (4, 5 or 6) are connected in series. To connect the batteries in series, always reverse the polarities (+ and -) from one battery to the other, i.e. from positive to negative. In some cases, a vehicle may require both a series and parallel connection.
