Tips to Maximize Your Range

How do you maximize your range on your electric scooter?

Choose a certified Long-Range E-Scooter

There are two best answers available. First would be the obvious, choose a certified long-range e-scooter that can really take you further. Do your research and find out the best electric scooter out there.

At Ride Hub Australia, when it comes to choosing the best electric scooter, they are in the business of satisfying their customers as much as possible. So if you’re looking for the perfect e-scooter, you’ve come to the right place.

Ride Hub Australia has a range of tools and guides to help you work out the right electric scooter for your lifestyle, even a buying guide for your convenience. Just reach out!

Bring Your Charger Along

Second would be, if possible, to bring your charger with you wherever you go so that you can recharge your electric scooter and bring it back to life 100%. However, if you want to avoid stopovers just to recharge, then the next steps could be useful for you.

Conserve Your Energy and Kickstart

Use as little energy as possible by conserving it. One way is by kick-starting your e-scooter. The motor uses the most power when it’s putting out the most torque — which is when you are first starting the scooter.

Conserve Your Energy and Slow Down

We all love to speed but for the sake of going further, not faster, then slow down. If you must, accelerate smoothly but slowly. Just do the math, the faster the acceleration, the more wind resistance, the more torque and the more energy is consumed. So keep your top speed down and perhaps, roll your way to your destination at a slower, steady pace by enjoying the breeze, smelling the roses. If possible, use your cruise mode.

Check Your Tires

Your tires are very important, they keep you rolling, literally. Without them, you might as well just walk and that won’t really save you time. So before you ride away, check your tires. Make sure you inflate your tires to the proper recommended pressure, which will reduce rolling resistance. Remember, having lower pressure will reduce your range, ending your trip sooner as it could also increase your risk of flat tires. No one wants that.

Get A Check-Up

While you’re checking on your tires, make sure to check on everything else. Each e-scooter part is important and they all work together. If one fails, it all fails, meaning your e-scooter just won’t work. So check-up on your e-scooter. This may determine your range as well as you avoid cutting your trip short.

Warm Up, Buttercup

Elsa from the Disney movie Frozen may sing “the cold never bothered me anyway” however it’s not the same case for batteries of e-scooters, or any batteries in general. Because the truth is, batteries are very much bothered by the cold. They aren’t able to perform their best or put out their full charge when they are colder. You’ll notice a very significant drop (temporary) in capacity when operating your battery below 50 F / 20 C. While you can’t really control the weather, do think twice when riding in the cold and just know the performance won’t be 100%.

Regenerated but not Recharged 

While you might think regenerative braking will regenerate your e-scooter and give you more range, sadly the answer is no, not really. Perhaps a 2% to 3% increase based on researched analysis but not much difference. However, regenerative braking will prolong the life of your e-scooter’s brake pads.


So there you go. Follow the steps above for your best e-scooter to take you further into your trip. Waste no time. Get things done. Be productive, be happy!
