How to Keep Your Electric Scooter Safe

Electric scooters are like any other mode of transport – you’ve got to take care of them so that they last longer, and are safe to use. Just like servicing a car, or repairing a bicycle, scooter maintenance is key to getting the most out of electric scooter.

It’s a good thing, then, that you’re reading this post! Today, Plusrite, Australia’s best team for high quality electric scooters, outline a few top tips to keep your electric scooter safe.

Keep it clean

One of the best ways to keep your electric scooter safe for use is to give it a good, old routine clean. Here’s a checklist of some of the things you should do when cleaning your electric scooter:

  • Remove large debris that’s become stuck in your wheels or mudguard, like bark chips, pebbles, dirt and leaves.
  • Clean screen and controls by using a screen-cleaning solution and a microfiber cloth.
  • Wipe down the small parts like the handles, brakes, lights, wires and cables.
  • Wipe down the body with soapy water and pat it dry with a towel.

By keeping your scooter clean, you’re preventing it from rust and protecting the essential mechanisms like the brakes and wheels from being jammed up by debris.

Test the brakes before you ride

Every few weeks, test the brakes on your electric scooter before you begin your journey. Just take off slowly and apply the brakes firmly, ensuring that they’re working at the best of their ability.

Check your waterproofing

Make sure you check how weatherproof your electric scooter is before buying it. If you live in a rainy area, you’ll want to make sure your electric scooter is OK to handle a bit of wet. All of Plusrite’s electric scooters are rated at IP65, making them perfect to ride in wet weather.

Store your scooter safely

Protecting your electric scooter from theft is another huge component of keeping it safe, so ensure you’re storing your scooter safely. If you ride to work, it’s always best to bring your scooter into the office with you – but if that’s not possible, simply invest it a top-rated scooter or bike lock. Remember to bring your scooter lock on every journey, just in case you need it.

Ride safely!

To safeguard against accidents and keep yourself safe as well as your scooter, please ride safely. This means keeping an eye on your surroundings, keeping an appropriate distance from the next rider and going a nice, steady pace without speeding.

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.
