How Long Does An Electric Scooter's Charge Last?

These days more people are using electric scooters to get around and they’re proving particularly popular for navigating busy cities. If you’re keen to start using one of these scooters you might be interested in what to expect and how far you can really travel after a single charge. Knowing how often you need to recharge an electric scooter can also help you to work out if it’s an appropriate form of transport for your needs. In this blog post, we discuss how long does an electric scooter’s charge last?

An Electric Scooter’s Battery

How long a single charge will last depends on a number of different factors. A single charge will typically last for around one hour. The range of factors that influence how long the battery lasts means that one charge can help you to travel different distances. Understanding the different factors that influence the battery power can help you to estimate how far you might be able to go on the scooter.

Factors That Influence Battery Power

The type of battery the scooter uses is also an important element of how long it’ll last and how long it takes to fully charge. Lithium batteries tend to be a good choice for electric scooters. This type of battery normally takes between four and six hours to charge fully and can give you a longer riding time. Most electric scooters use either a lithium-ion or lithium-polymer battery. Some also have dual power input  options that help them to charge more quickly.

Total Lifespan of an Electric Scooter Battery

Similarly to a single charge, the total lifespan of an electric scooter’s battery is difficult to predict. In addition to the factors that influence how long a single charge lasts, how often you use and recharge the scooter can also have an impact here. In general, an electric scooter battery will last between three and five years. When the battery reaches the end of its lifespan, you will normally notice the dance is reduced and eventually you’ll have to replace it with a new one.
