What is a mobility scooter?

Mobility scooter, also called the lazy car, refers to transportation and auxiliary tools for the purpose of transportation. In China, it can sometimes refer to cars, electric bicycles, electric mobility scooters, two-wheel self-balance mobility scooters, and unicycle balance mobility scooters. It is used for people with mild disabilities and elderly people who have limited mobility but have not yet lost their mobility. In order to provide convenient auxiliary devices to achieve the purpose of providing labor-saving and increasing movement and living space. Electric mobility scooters in old age quickly occupied the mobility scooter market due to their advantages of simplicity, ease of operation, economy, and practicality, and are very popular among the elderly and people with disabilities. In recent years, new energy electric mobility vehicles have become popular, providing new mobility options for users who pay attention to practicality, safety, and economic convenience.

What are the advantages of mobility scooters?

The compact body of the mobility scooter brings a flexible driving experience. It can shuttle freely in alleys or urban congested roads, making travel easier and more efficient, and avoiding the trouble of "difficult parking". At the same time, the charging mode does not rely on traditional charging piles, and household 220V can complete convenient charging, and it only costs 5 cents per kilometer to achieve "light cost" travel. In terms of practicality, the mobility scooter adopts the design concept of "minimizing mechanical space and maximizing riding space", with a three-meter body layout of three seats, creating a spacious and comfortable riding environment. The rear seats support flat laying down. In terms of safety, the mobility scooter will be equipped with a high-strength steel body frame design, and the proportion of high-strength steel in the entire body will reach more than 57%. The mobility scooter comes standard with an ABS anti-lock braking system, EBD braking force distribution, tire pressure monitoring, and reversing radar functions, and the safety configuration also allows users to travel at ease.

What are the classifications of mobility scooters?

The two-wheeled mobility scooter is based on a basic principle called "dynamic stability", which is the automatic balancing ability of the vehicle itself. The built-in precision solid-state gyroscope is used to judge the body's posture state, and after the appropriate instructions are calculated by the precision and high-speed central microprocessor, the motor is driven to achieve the effect of balance. The fastest speed of the new type of mobility scooter can reach 15 kilometers per hour, while the average walking speed is 3 to 5 kilometers per hour. This kind of transportation allows people to ride in the city without obstacles. There are also four-wheeled mobility scooters used by the elderly, which are convenient to use, safe and comfortable.

What should I pay attention to when using a mobility scooter?

The mobility scooter should drive according to the road conditions, mainly to avoid bumpy roads. Be sure to slow down when going uphill, on the bridge, or driving heavy loads against the wind. This can avoid the battery's large current discharge, reduce the impact damage of the battery, and also increase the battery's endurance and service life. When driving a mobility scooter in winter, try not to increase the horsepower to the maximum, so that it can avoid the phenomenon of insufficient power due to the decrease of the battery capacity in the low-temperature state, and it is also conducive to prolonging the service life of the battery. Charge in time, and do not lose power when the mobility scooter is stored. It is prone to sulfation when the battery is stored in a power-deficient state. Lead sulfate crystals adhere to the plate, blocking the ion channel, causing insufficient charging, and reducing battery capacity. The longer the idle time in the power-deficient state, the more serious the battery damage. Therefore, when the mobility scooter is not in use, it should be recharged once a month to better maintain battery health. Avoid high-current discharge, and try to avoid instantaneous high-current discharge when the mobility scooter starts, carries people or goes uphill. High-current discharge can easily lead to lead sulfate crystals, thereby damaging the physical properties of the battery. Correctly grasp the charging time. During the use of the mobility scooter, it is difficult to accurately grasp the charging time according to the actual situation, refer to the usual frequency of use and mileage, and also pay attention to the capacity description provided by the battery manufacturer, as well as the performance and charging of the supporting charger Parameters such as the size of the current can be used to control the charging frequency. Generally, the battery is charged at night, and the average charging time is about 8 hours. If it is shallow discharge (the driving range is short after charging), the battery will be fully charged soon, and overcharge will occur if the battery continues to charge, which will cause the battery to lose water, heat, and reduce the battery life. Therefore, the battery discharge depth is 60%. It is best to charge it once at 70%, and it can be converted into riding mileage in actual use. Charge it according to the actual situation to avoid damaging charging.

Today, mobility scooter technology has been well developed. And the degree of automation is very high. So how should we choose the right mobility scooter? Shanghai Wisking conducts a large number of connection tests on the mobility scooter before leaving the factory to ensure the quality assurance rate. If you are in the mobility scooter business, you can consider using our cost-effective products.
