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
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 mobile phones. The
interference (from radio wave sources) can cause the powered scooter to release its brakes,
move by itself, or move in unintended directions. It can also permanently damage the
powered scooter’s control system. The intensity of the interfering EM energy can be
measured in volts per meter (V/m). Each powered scooter 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 scooter 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
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 scooter.
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 close
to the control system of powerchair 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 scooter.
WARNINGS
Electromagnetic interference (EMI) from sources such as radio and TV stations, amateur
radio (HAM) transmitters, two-way radios, and mobile phones can affect powered scooter
and motorized scooter. Following the warnings listed below should reduce the chance of
unintended brake release or powered scooter 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.

OPERATION
BATTERY INDICATOR
• The battery indicator on the tiller console uses a
color code to indicate the approximate power
remaining in your batteries. Green indicates
(40°-100%) capacity, yellow a draining charge
(10°-30%),and red indicates that an immediate
recharge is necessary.
• The remaining power 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 gauge may fluctuate. This is a normal
phenomenon.
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 twelve-month warranty covering manufacturing defects. This
warranty does not cover faults due to incorrect battery recharging.
