BUYER RESPONSIBILITIES AND MAINTENANCE

No manufacturer will honor warranties for products that have been misused, so please operate your vehicle in a manner that is in keeping with the capabilities for which it was designed.

Charge your batteries after each ride and NEVER let the batteries run completely flat – Do not push-ride the car if the battery power is diminishing, as this will cause an overload in the controller, which is not covered by warranty.

As the batteries lifespan is dependent on the user and charging intervals, Batteries are only covered for 90 days .

Defects resulting from misuseabuse or negligence will void any warranty.

BATTERY WARRANTY (90 DAYS)

As the batteries lifespan is dependent on the user and charging intervals, Batteries are only covered for 90 days . These are guidelines that one should follow:

We do not guarantee the batteries for longer than 3 months. For the first charge, batteries should be charged for a period of 8-12 hours.

From there onwards, batteries should be recharged for a period of 6 hours minimum – leaving the charger plugged in to the scooter will not cause any damage to the batteries, although the charger is at risk of being damaged due to a power surge.

If not being used, the batteries must be charged frequently (at least once a month) and not left standing empty for lengthy periods of time. If left uncharged for a lengthy period the battery will no longer produce the necessary charge needed to run the product efficiently.

Charge your batteries after each ride and NEVER let the batteries run completely flat – Do not push-ride the scooter if the battery power is diminishing, as this will cause an overload in the controller, which is not covered by warranty.

When is it  covered?:
The warranty starts the day the scooter is dispatched.

What is covered?:
Carry in Warranty
The warranty is on a ‘carry-in’ basis. The scooter owner must bring the car in to the workshop, and we will endeavour to repair the scooter while you wait, if possible.
