We strive to provide accurate range estimates for our electric scooters in the product description.
The more power a scooter has, the more the range will vary depending on riding style.
The Mantis PRO has a battery with 24.5Ah (=1470Wh = 24.5Ahx60V) and has two motors with 1000W base output each and a total peak output of 3240W (60Vx27Ax2motors). If you cruise along at 20mph in single motor and ECO mode you may be using 500-800W on average. At 1470Wh battery capacity this will last you for 2-3 hours. At that riding style, you should get 40-50 miles.
If you use the same scooter at max performance settings and you are riding 40mph, the motors will draw 3000W. At that level you will only be able to ride half an hour and range would be 20 miles.
This is just an example to demonstrate the large discrepancy in real world ranges depending on riding style. Actual range is also impacted by rider weight, road conditions, how aggressive you are riding, and wind.
One point on voltage and battery capacity as shown on the display:
The %age or battery bars shown in the display are not really accurate. Take into account that the first 30% of battery charge (from 100% to 70%) will last longer than the last 30% (from 30% down to 0%).
When charging your electric scooter, make sure it charges up to its target voltage to ensure the battery is fully functional. This is 67V for Mantis and Wolf, and 54V for WideWheel and Horizon. You can access the voltage reading in the display as described in the manual (short press on mode or power button while turned on - depending on model).
The actual voltage reading fluctuates downwards whenever you put a lot of load on the motors - this is normal. It will come back up when you idle. Keep an eye on voltage while riding to get a better feeling on how voltage relates to Battery charge. The relation is NOT linear. You will experience a relatively quick drop of the first 2-3 voltage points and then a gradual decline until you hit about 54V on Mantis/Wolf and 43V on WideWheel/Horizon. At that lower level, a sudden increase in power, by e.g. full acceleration or going up a hill, may cause the voltage to briefly get to the controller shut off point and your scooter may shut down. You will need to connect your scooter to a charger to reactivate.
We recommend that whenever battery is low, keep an eye on the display to see how Voltage fluctuates downwards when you draw a lot of power.
On the Wolf and Mantis PRO, the display will start blinking whenever you are getting close to empty. On Mantis base and Horizon, you have reached a similarly low level, when there is only one bar left. If that happens while are you are still a few miles away from your destination, you can switch to ECO and single motor mode and cruise along to preserve battery charge. On the Horizon, reduce your speed and try to cruise as much as possible.
