Extended Range Scooters can be a life saver when you least expect it
Even though the average power scooter user may not need to travel more than 6-10 miles at a time, there have been moments where high travel range scooters have proven their mettle time and time again.
Let’s say you’re headed to a friend’s home who lives a couple of minutes away. There, you meet more friends, who at the spur of the moment, decide to take a road trip and ask you to come along. Now, of course, we’re assuming that all your friends are power scooter users as well.
It’s moments like these you’ll never have to worry about: “What if my scooter battery conks out in the middle of the highway” or “What if I have to be in that embarrassing situation where I’m flashing my thumb in the air, hoping to have myself and my scooter picked up by a stranger?”
Let’s be real – you don’t need moments like these. A long battery life scooters gives you complete peace of mind that your machine will continue to chug along according to the maximum travel range it is capable of after a single battery charge.
