How Long Should My E-Scooter Battery Last?

​​Electric scooters, also known as e-scooters, have become increasingly popular in recent years as an eco-friendly and convenient mode of transportation. One of the most important factors to consider when purchasing an e-scooter is the battery life. Knowing how long an e-scooter battery should last can help you determine which scooter is the best fit for your needs.

The battery life of an e-scooter is measured in two ways: range and lifespan. The range is the distance an e-scooter can travel on a single charge, while lifespan is the number of charge cycles a battery can go through before it needs to be replaced.

Range: The range of an e-scooter is determined by several factors, including the size of the battery, the power of the motor, and the weight of the rider. On average, e-scooters have a range of 15-40 miles per charge. However, this can vary greatly depending on the scooter model, riding conditions, and how the scooter is being used.

To check the range of your electric scooter look at the product description on the website you bought it from, or refer to the user manual that came with your scooter. The user manual will provide you with additional information regarding the battery of your electric scooter. 

Lifespan: The lifespan of an e-scooter battery is measured in charge cycles. A charge cycle is defined as one complete discharge of the battery followed by a full recharge. On average, e-scooter batteries can go through 300-500 charge cycles before they need to be replaced. However, this can vary depending on the quality of the battery and how it is being used.

You can also prolong the lifespan of the battery on your electric scooter by following these tips: 

  1. Never deplete the battery completely 
  2. Don’t use your e-scooter in extreme elements or temperatures 
  3. Use the charger that came with the scooter 
  4. Don’t overwork the electric scooter 
  5. When storing, never fully charge or drain the battery. Keep it between 40-70%

It's important to note that e-scooter batteries will degrade over time and their range will decrease. To extend the life of an e-scooter battery, it's important to avoid overcharging, discharging the battery fully, and leaving the battery in extreme temperatures.

E-scooter batteries can last anywhere from 15-40 miles on a single charge and 300-500 charge cycles before needing to be replaced. It's important to consider your usage needs and riding conditions when choosing an e-scooter to ensure that the battery will meet those needs. 

As always, it's recommended to check the manufacturer's specifications and recommendations for the specific e-scooter model you're interested in. For information on how to maintain the battery on your electric scooter refer to our e-scooter battery maintenance blog at:
