The Quingo Scooters team have recently written a guide to explain how to best charge your Quingo Flyte, Plus, Classic and Vitess 2, as well as how to charge your Quingo Air, Compact or Powerbase. This time around, we’d like to take a further look at charging the Quingo Toura, Quingo Toura 2 and the Quingo Vitess and how to get the best performance from their batteries.
Charger for the Quingo Toura (MK1)
When the charger for the Quingo Toura is plugged into the mains the red light will come on and will remain active until the power has been switched off.
Once the charger and the Toura are connected, it will begin charging. This is signified by the second light changing to yellow/orange in colour. Once the scooter is nearly fully charged the light will turn green.
Charger for the Quingo Toura 2 and the Vitess (MK1)
Much like the Toura’s charger, when the charger for these models is plugged into the mains the red light will come on; this will change to a yellow/orange colour when plugged into the scooter to indicate they’re being charged. When the charge is close to finishing the light will finally change to green.
Are there any major differences between the two chargers?
Both chargers function in the same way and best practice guidelines apply to both. The only major differences, apart from their physical appearances, are that whilst the Toura’s charger has two lights to indicate its charging status, the Toura 2 and the Vitess just have one.
Does the green light indicate that the battery is fully charged at that point?
The green light will come on to show the scooter has enough of a charge to be used. Although it should be noted that leaving your scooter (whatever the model) to charge for the full recommended 12 hours provides better conditioning to the batteries (trickle charge) and will effectively last for a longer period.
Does it harm the Quingo battery if the charger’s left on for 24 hours?
If the scooter is used regularly and given a 24 hour charge between using it again, the battery won’t be harmed. However, leaving the scooter on constant charge whilst the scooter is not in use may affect the battery. It’s best practice to complete the charge cycle before removing the charger from the mains and your scooter.
- Never connect or disconnect your Quingo’s charger with the mains on.
- Don’t charge your Quingo in the open since it may rain and the batteries are not waterproof.
- It’s important to note that you should never leave the battery charger connected with the mains switched off – this will drain your batteries.
