Can You Replace the Battery in an Electric Scooter?

Electric scooters have taken Australia by storm. In Melbourne and Sydney, they’re one of the quickest and easiest ways to beat the heavy traffic and arrive at work on time. And they’re also a great way for older kids to get to school, or have fun on the weekends. E-scooter hire companies like Lime have popped up in every capital city.

But with many electric modes of transport, like cars and bikes, there’s one area that is often a point of debate: the battery. Car batteries, for example, are difficult and expensive to replace once they’ve come to the end of their life. Is it possible to replace the battery on an electric scooter and, if so, is it expensive to do so?

Let’s take a look at battery replacements on electric scooters, thanks to Australia’s favourite electric scooter retailers at Plusrite:

Yes, you can replace the battery in an electric scooter.

Electric scooter batteries are certainly able to be replaced. You can replace the battery on most electric scooters using just a screwdriver, Allen key spanner and needle nose pliers.

Replacing the battery is cost effective

Don’t worry – replacing the battery on your electric scooter isn’t like replacing a car battery. While car batteries can cost upwards of $10,000, electric scooter batteries can cost anywhere between $25 and $300, depending on the model. When compared to a major service on a car, which costs easily in the thousands of dollars, a fee of a couple hundred for your scooter isn’t too bad! This means you can ride around on your electric scooter, knowing it’s the most reliable and economical mode of transport available.

Check your warranty first

Your battery may be covered by the warranty on your scooter, so make sure you check your warranty before you go replacing the battery on your own. Plusrite electric scooters all come with a year-long warranty, so you can scoot with total peace of mind.

Invest in a high-quality scooter battery

The type of battery used in your electric scooter is one thing to check if you want to avoid replacing it for as long as possible. Lithium is the best electric scooter battery type, as it’s lighter, more durable and has a bigger charge capacity than other battery types like, for example, lead acid. Plusrite use premium grade lithium batteries in all of their electric scooters.

Electric scooters from Plusrite are the ideal mode of transport for work-commuting adults and adventure-seeking kids alike. Highly economical, durable and reliable, Plusrite scooters are built from quality parts and made for Australian roads. Waterproof and IP65-rated, they’re able to function in rain, snow or sleet.

Amazing service. After ordering from Michael I expected the lights to take a week to get to Brisbane (like many items I buy from interstate suppliers), but no, these turned up the next business day. Well done.

Purchased the AU08-DL30W/W/S downlights with romote in October 2020 but only installed 3 weeks ago. They are great lights & the remote & setup are very easy to use. I Installed the new downlights as the existing downlights had power sockets in the ceiling space which meant that I could unplug my old ones & simply plug in the new ones. That was easy apart from having to enlarge the plaster hole size & make good. The amount of overall light & spread is great & the dimming works really well. I intend to buy more of these soon

Plusrite LED has provided 38off High Bay LED industrial lighting units to replace the old mercury vapour HB lights in our large Industrial complex at Darra, Queensland. What impressed us and our tenant was, the simple 5year full replacement warranty, the high efficacy 190 Lms/Watt and the pricing was competitive with other units offered. The number of lights recommended per bay were closer to our Tenants requirements then the other 3 offers and has result proved to be better than expected. RN Tupicoff Pty Ltd.
