Daily Care and Maintenance

Cleaning and storage 

Whenever you see stains on the scooter's body, wipe them off with a damp cloth. Put on some toothpaste, and brush the stains with a toothbrush, then wipe them off with a damp cloth.

To prevent serious damage, do not clean the scooter with alcohol, gasoline, kerosene, or other corrosive and volatile chemical solvents.

Do not spray the board with high-pressure water. When cleaning your scooter, make sure that the scooter is turned off, the charging cable is unplugged, and the rubber flap is closed. Water leakage may result in electric shock or other serious problems. When the scooter is not in use, keep it indoors where it is dry and cool. Do not leave it outdoors for an extended period of time.

Overheating, overcooling, and excessive sunlight all shorten the battery pack's lifespan.

  2. Avoid touching the contacts. Do not disassemble or puncture the casing. Keeping the contacts away from metal objects will prevent short circuits that could cause battery damage or even death;
  3. Use the original power adapter to prevent damage or fire;
  4. handling used batteries improperly may harm the environment. When disposing of used batteries, please follow local regulations.
  5. Fully charge the battery after each use to prolong its life.

In extremely humid conditions, the interior of the scooter may suffer condensation or even water accumulation, which will very quickly damage the battery. Devices are not intended for use at elevations above 2000 meters. Prolonged exposure to UV rays, rain, and other elements can damage the enclosure materials. Store indoors when not in use.
  2. You should avoid recharging the scooter after completely exhausting the battery on a daily basis. If the battery is low, you should charge it as soon as possible.
