" ...  So, a friend of mine told me about this electric scooter that had a long battery life and would last for over 13 miles! ... Then it was a matter of charging the battery for three hours and then it was good to go!  ...  "
comment
" ...  I can't really say just how good the battery is in this scooter because I I'm 6'4" and 320 pounds, well over the weight limit, but I would say that it is within the expectations I had when I purchased the scooter. ... This reduces the overall amount of Watt hours that can be pulled out of the battery pack in one session.  ...  "

" ...  The latch works absolutely fine, I'm not sure how others are holding it that it comes undone easily, but I think that's more lack of common sense. ... If you're pulling the lever, ya better hold on tight because they grip and will stop you quick.  ...  "

In a folded position, there is a clip that holds the two pieces together (the parts that fold down). ...
