WARNING:
Radio waves may affect scooter control.
Radio wave sources, such as radio stations, amateur radio (HAM) transmitters,
two-way radios, and cellular phones, can affect powered motorized scooters. Following
the warning listed below should reduce the chance of unintended brake release or
powered scooter movement which could result in serious injury. .
1. Do not turn ON hand-held personal communication devices, such as citizens band
(CB) radios and cellular phones, while the powered scooter is turned ON.
2. Be aware of nearby transmitters, such as radio or TV stations, and try to avoid
coming close to them.
3. If unintended movement or brake release occurs, turn the powered scooter OFF as
soon as it is safe.
4. Be aware that adding accessories or components, or modifying the powered
scooter, may make it more susceptible to interference from radio wave sources.
(Note: There is no easy way to evaluate their effect on powered scooter.)
5. Report all incidents of unintended movement or brake release to the powered
scooter manufacturer, and note whether there is a radio wave source nearby.

SAFETY
NOTICE
2.4 EMI
This portion of the content will provide the user with basic information that describes
the problems with EMI, known sources of EMI, protective measures either to lessen the
possibility or exposure or to minimize the degree of exposure, and suggested action
should unexpected or erratic movement occur.
Caution: It is very important that you read this information regarding the possible
effects of electromagnetic interference on your electric scooter.
■ ELECTROMAGNETIC INTERFERENCE (EMI) FROM RADIO WAVE
SOURCES
Powered vehicle may be susceptible to electromagnetic interference (EMI), which is
interfering electromagnetic energy (EM) emitted from sources such as radio stations,
TV stations, amateur radio (HAM) transmitters, two-way radios, and cellular phones.
The interference (from radio wave sources) can cause the powered vehicle to release its
brakes, move by itself, or move in unintended directions. It can also permanently
damage the powered vehicle’s control system. The intensity of the interfering EM
energy can be measured in volts per meter (V/m). Each powered vehicle can resist EMI
up to a certain intensity. This is called its “immunity level”. The higher the immunity
level, the greater the protection. At this time, current technology is capable of achieving
at least a 20 V/m immunity level, which would provide useful protection from the more
common sources of radiated EMI. This powered vehicle model as shipped, with no
further modification, has an immunity level of 20 V/m without any accessories.
There are a number of sources of relatively intense electromagnetic fields in the
everyday environment. Some of these sources are obvious and easy to avoid. Others
are not apparent and exposure is unavoidable. However, we believe that by following
the warning listed below, your risk to EMI will be minimized.
The sources of radiated EMI can be broadly classified into three types:
1. Hand-held portable transceivers ( transmitter-receivers with the antenna mounted
directly on the transmitting unit. Examples include: citizens band (CB) radios,
“walkie talkie”, security, fire, and police transceivers, cellular telephones and other
personal communication devices.
Note: Some mobile telephones and similar transmit signal while they are ON, even
when not being used;
2. Medium-range mobile transceivers, such as those used in police cars, fire trucks,
ambulances and taxis. These usually have the antenna mounted on the outside of
the scooter.
8
2.
SAFETY
NOTICE
3. Long-range transmitters and transceivers, such as commercial broadcast transmitter
(radio and TV broadcast antenna towers) and amateur (HAM) radios;
Note: Other types of hand-held devices, such as cordless phones, laptop computers,
AM/FM radios, TV sets, CD player, and cassette players, and small appliances, such
as electric shavers and hair dryers, so far as we know, are not likely to cause EMI
problems to your powered vehicle.
■ POWERED VEHICLE ELECTROMAGNETIC INTERFERENCE (EMI)
Because EM energy rapidly becomes more intense as one moves closer to the
transmitting antenna (source), the EM fields from hand-held radio wave sources
(transceivers) are of special concern. It is possible to unintentionally bring high
levels of EM energy very closer to the powered vehicle’s control system while using
these devices. This can affect powered vehicle movement and braking. Therefore,
the warnings listed below are recommended to prevent possible interference with the
control system of the powered vehicle.
■ WARNINGS
Electromagnetic interference (EMI) from sources such as radio and TV stations,
amateur radio (HAM) transmitters, two-way radios, and cellular phones can affect
powered vehicles and motorized scooter. Following the warnings listed below should
reduce the chance of unintended brake release or powered vehicle movement which
could result in serious injury.
1. Do not operate hand-held transceivers-receivers), such as citizens band (CB) radios,
or turn ON personal communication devices, such as cellular phones, while the
powered vehicle is turned ON;
2. Be aware of nearby transmitters, such as radio or TV stations, and try to avoid
coming close to them;
3. If unintended movement or brake release occurs, turn the powered vehicle OFF as
soon as it is safe;
4. Be aware that adding accessories or components, or modifying the powered vehicle,
may make it more susceptible to EMI ( Note: There is no easy way to evaluated
their effect on the overall immunity of the powered vehicle);
5. Report all incidents of unintended movement or brake release to the powered
vehicle manufacturer, and note whether there is a source of EMI nearby;
■ IMPORTANT INFORMATION
1.20 Volts per meter ( V/m) is a generally achievable and useful immunity level
against EMI ( the higher the level, the greater the protection);
2.This product has an immunity level of 20 V/m without any accessories and
connected to it

4. OPERATION
■ Battery Indicator
♦ The battery indicator on the tiller console uses
a color code to indicate the approximate power
remaining of you batteries. Green indicates (40
~100%) capacity, yellow a draining charge(10
~30%),and red indicates that an immediate
recharge is necessary.
♦ The remaining range suggested by the battery
indicator will vary by the actual driving time
incurred and how you drive. Repeated starting,
stopping, climbing will consume the power
more quickly.
& Suggestion
1. You should recharge the batteries after each time the vehicle is used to ensure
maximum range. The batteries should be charged up at least once a week even if the
scooter is not used.
2. After charging or replacing a new battery, drive the vehicle for 2-3 minutes to make
sure the battery capacity is sufficient.
3. In wintertime, the battery may respond more slowly and the battery range may be
reduced.
4. When driving on a gradient, the battery indicator light might move up and down. This
is a normal phenomenon so please do not worry.
5. Even if the battery is used properly, it is natural for the battery’s capacity to reduce
with time, which results in reduced battery range compared to a brand new battery.
Therefore, when you find the battery’s range is about only 50% of the range when the
batteries were new, it is time to replace the batteries. Please see your dealer about
replacement batteries. If you continue to use the old battery when it should be
replaced, it could lead to a rapid decline in performance.
6. The battery range will be reduced when driving frequently on a slope or rough terrain,
as this leads to greater consumption of power.
7. The batteries have a six-month warranty covering manufacturing defects. This
warranty does not cover faults due to incorrect battery recharging.
