Don’t take a chance on cheap lithium batteries!
What does V and Ah of a battery mean on the specification sheet?
Now most often on commuter scooters, you will see 24V, 36V or 48V. The volts give the electric scooter power or torque and in most cases the higher voltage the higher the speed. “A” is for electric current in Amperes and “H” is for time in Hours. Ah or Amperes hours give the electric scooter the distance or range. So the greater the Ah the longer the range capability. A lot of electric scooters range is measured with a load of 70kg, speed of 20km/h and wind speed under 10km/h on a flat surface. So if the scooter has a range of 30km and you weigh over 70kg. If you travel at a speed faster than 20kph you will not reach 30km range on a full battery. You need to take wind and slope into account also. This will be the case with all electric scooters.
What is the cost of a cheap electric scooter? I hope you have a better understanding now!
