What can affect the range of your Quingo?
The maximum range of your Quingo can be affected by a number of things, so to get the most of your battery it’s worth bearing in mind the following factors that will affect the range of your Quingo scooter:
- Incorrect charging – make sure you fully charge your battery after use. Part charging will eventually damage the battery and reduce the range of your Quingo.
- Cold weather – your battery’s performance will decrease as the temperature drops. So make sure you fully charge your scooter before you go out, particularly during the winter months.
- Low tyre pressure – if you are experiencing low range with your scooter, low tyre pressure could be the reason. Tyre pressures should always be kept correct to get the most from your battery. See below for a list of recommended tyre pressures:
|Quingo Air||30psi 2.1 bar|
|Quingo Classic||30psi 2.1 bar|
|Quingo Plus||30psi 2.1 bar|
|Quingo Vitess||30psi 2.1 bar|
|Quingo Toura||30psi 2.1 bar|
- Worn batteries – as your battery gets older, the range of your scooter will decrease.
- Weight – the more weight carried on the vehicle the lower the range will be. This is particularly useful to know if you are planning on shopping for some heavy items before going on a long journey.
- Terrain – taking your Quingo up steep slopes will make your scooter work harder, this will reduce the range. Another thing that will affect your Quingo’s range is the type of ground. If you use your vehicle on grass, shingle or generally soft ground the power consumption will double. This means the range of your scooter could decrease by up to 50%.
- Accessories – any accessories that require battery power (for example the heated handle grips) will reduce the range of your Quingo, so plan your journey accordingly if you are using these accessories.
The above points are things to bear in mind, particularly if you are taking your Quingo on long journeys.
