Tips for a long service life and a large range of your scooter

If you want to use your electric scooter for as long as possible and without any problems, there are a few things to consider when it comes to care and storage. For example, you should check the tire pressure regularly, because too little tire pressure leads to higher energy consumption and faster tire wear. A proactive driving style also saves electricity and thus range. Temperature also plays a role in longevity and range. At +10 °C the battery capacity is 3% lower and at -10 °C 6% lower than at +25 °C. If you leave the unu outside overnight in winter, it is best to take the battery into your apartment so that it does not get too cold.
