WARNINGS:
EMI Warning
This scooters may be susceptible to electromagnetic interference (EMI), which is a
kind of interfering electromagnetic energy (EM) emitted from sources such as radio
stations, TV stations, amateur radio (HAM) transmitters, two-way radio, and cellular
phones. The interference (from radio wave sources) can cause the scooter to release
its brakes, move by itself, or move in unintended directions. It can also permanently
damage the scooter’s control system.
The sources of radiated EMI can be broadly classified into three types:
1. Hand-held portable transceivers (transmitters-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
cellular telephones and similar devices transmit signals 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 vehicle.
3. Long-range transmitters and transceivers, such as commercial broadcast
transmitters (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 players, and
cassette players, and small appliances, such as electric shavers and
hair dryers, so far as we know, are not likely to cause problems to the
scooter.
Scooter 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 sources
(transceivers) are of special concern. It is possible to unintentionally bring high
levels of EM energy very close to the scooter’s control system while using these
devices. This can affect scooter movement and braking. Therefore, the warnings
listed below are recommended to prevent possible interference with the control
system of the scooter.
-
NOTE! There is no easy way to evaluate the overall immunity of the
scooter.
Report all incidents of unintended movement or braking to Challenger Mobility, and
note whether there are sources of EMI nearby.
Page 6 -
WARNINGS:
1. Do not operate hand-held transceivers (transmitters-receivers), such as citizens
band (CB) radios, or turn ON personal communication devices, such as cellular
phones, while the 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 scooter OFF as soon
as it is safe.
4. Be aware that adding accessories or components, or modifying the scooter may
make it more susceptible to EMI.

could affect the safe operation of your scooter.
 Be careful while driving in heavy traffic or in crowded areas.
 While reversing the scooter, be aware of people or objects behind you.
CLIMBING RAMPS
The stability of your scooter is governed by several factors such as the seating
position, the angle of the slope and your height and weight. When approaching an
incline, do so directly and not at an angle and where ever possible avoid making
turns. When going down a ramp or slope keep the speed settings on slow. This will
ensure there is a safe controlled descent. When the hand throttle is released the
scooter will slowly stop.
STOPPING THE SCOOTER
ELECTROMAGNETIC BRAKE
Release the throttle while going forwards or backwards, and the electromagnetic
brake in the motor will be activated, stopping the scooter naturally.
EMERGENCY BRAKE
This scooter is equipped with a manual front brake. It can be engaged in extreme
situations, by squeezing the handbrake lever located at the left side of your tiller to
further reduce the stopping distance. It can be used as an additional parking brake.
BRAKING WARNING:
The stopping distance will vary with your forward/reverse speed.
Please begin braking as early as possible.
TURN SIGNAL LIGHT SWITCH
The turn signal front and rear lights will flash when you press the left or right hand
turn signal switch.
HORN BUTTON

ANTI-TIP WHEELS
The anti-tip wheels are located at the rear of the scooter frame. The scooter should
not be used unless the anti-tipping wheels are in place.
BATTERY GAUGE
When the power switch is turned on, the battery gauge indicator needle will move up
from “L” to “H” to indicate the power remaining in the batteries.
The “H” green area indicates a full charge from the batteries. The “L” orange and red
area indicates it is time to recharge.
The remaining power indicated by the battery gauge will vary based on the actual
driving time and how you drive. Repeated starting, stopping or climbing will consume
the power more quickly.
-
Page 13 -
Suggestions:
1. It is recommended that you charge the batteries immediately when the battery
gauge is in the red area.
2. After charging or replacing new batteries, drive the scooter for 2-3 minutes to
make sure the batteries capacity is enough.
3. In the wintertime, the batteries may respond more slowly and the distance you
can travel may also be shortened.
4. When driving on an incline, the battery gauge light might move from green to
red, this is a normal phenomenon, please do not worry.
5. Even if the batteries are used properly, it is natural that the batteries capability
will decay as time passes. This results in a shortening of travel distance compared
to brand new batteries. Therefore, when you find the travel distance is about only
50% of brand new batteries traveling distance, it is time for replacement of
batteries. Please go to your dealer and ask for new batteries. If you continue to
use the old batteries when its capacity has decreased, it could lead to a decrease
in travel distance.
6. Travel distance will be shortened when driving frequently on an incline or slope,
as this leads to a larger consumption of the power.
ACCESSING THE REAR COMPARTMENT
In order to access the rear compartment area, move first the scooter seat forward.
Then using the ignition key open the rear compartment lock and flip the seat up. You
can turn there the circuit breaker “on” or “off”, or you can replace the batteries.
