Charge time, Battery Life, Distance, Speed.   Recommended charge time for scooters are at least until the charger indicator light turns green. (Charge time could take 8 hrs... charging is recommended daily overnight. Batteries should never fully discharge). If you will be stationary for a long period of time, it is recommended (but not necessary) that you plug in to top off charge if possible. Speed goes up to 5mph with a 40 inch turning radius. There are different factors that will affect battery life such as: weight, (extra baggage on scooter), speed, and condition (smooth or terrain). When fully charged properly, scooter operates at an estimated distance of 3-10 miles.  Remember, batteries read actual capacity or available power left on scooter meter while operating (driving), not while idle or at start up.
