Cold Weather Riding on Electric Scooters

Levy scooters can be ridden in cold temperatures, including below freezing.  However, expect diminished battery range and speed when riding in colder climates. 

Since chemical reactions slow down in cold weather, all lithium battery types will suffer performance decreases in cold weather and can be expected.  Cold temperatures increase the internal resistance and lowers the capacity. A battery that provides 100 percent capacity at 80°F will typically deliver only 50 percent at 0°F.  Check out our range calculator to see how cold weather riding on electric scooters might affect your range. 

If you don't plan on using your scooter in the winter months, it's best to keep the battery stored in an indoor temperature above 32 degrees fahrenheit but below 80 degrees.  See here for more tips on Prolonging the life of your Electric Scooter Battery.
