Once the scooter is fully charged, you’re ready to hit the road.

Charging Devices

If you’re planning on using your Gotrax Scooter to commute to work or run errands, it’s a good idea to invest in a few charging devices. This way, you can keep your scooter charged up and ready to go at all times. A portable charger is a great option for those on the go, while a wall charger is perfect for home use.

Portable Charger

A portable charger is a must-have for anyone who uses their Gotrax Scooter on a regular basis. Simply charge up the charger in advance and keep it with you when you’re out and about. This way, you can recharge your scooter’s battery whenever it starts to run low.

Wall Charger

A wall charger is another great option for Gotrax Scooter owners. Keep one at home and one at work, so you can always charge up your scooter when it’s not in use.

Monitoring the Charging Process

Once you’ve plugged in your Gotrax Scooter to charge, it’s important to monitor the charging process. This can be done by checking the LED indicator light on the charger. If the light is green, this means that the scooter is charging properly. However, if the light is red, this indicates that there is an issue with the charging process.  

In this case, you should check the connection between the charger and the scooter to make sure that it is secure.


Another way to monitor the charging process is to use a voltmeter. This device will allow you to check the voltage of the scooter’s battery. If the reading is below 12 volts, this means that the battery is not being charged properly and you should take action to rectify the situation.

Installing the Battery

Once your Gotrax Scooter is fully charged, you’re ready to install the battery. To do this, simply insert the battery into the scooter’s battery compartment. Make sure that the positive and negative terminals are properly aligned before inserting the battery. Once the battery is in place, you can close up the compartment and enjoy your scooter.

Charging Tips

Here are a few tips to help you get the most out of your Gotrax Scooter:

  • It’s best to charge your scooter after each use. This will help to prolong the life of the battery.
  • Avoid charging the scooter in direct sunlight. This can cause the battery to overheat and decrease its lifespan.
