Switch the scooter off and allow it to cool down for a few minutes.
Switch the scooter on again and ...
... reverse away from the obstacle (such as kerbstone) and then
try again at a lower point.
... be careful turning the scooter around on inclines, and always
reverse away very slowly.
Tipping hazard!
There is an increased tipping hazard if the incline is very steep.
• Try to get help from a second person when turning your
scooter around.

Battery charging state = driving range
7.4.1 Battery charging state
Battery charge display
Battery charge display:
The battery charger display on the
dashboard shows the battery charging state.
Full
= maximum range
Medium = decreased driving range, charge
batteries after journey
Reserve = minimum driving range, end
journey as soon as possible,
charge batteries
Display ranges
Red-reserve
Yellow-medium
Green-full
Important information about reading the battery charge display:
• If the scooter is at standstill, it is often the case that the battery
charging state is shown higher than it actually is.
• The display can vary greatly while the vehicle is travelling (depending
on load).
• If the vehicle is under heavier loading (for example heavy
acceleration, driving up hills), the pointer can sometimes go to the red
area of the display. This is not critical and does not indicate the actual
charging state of the batteries.
• If the pointer has gone into the red area of the display after the
journey, it will often show green after switching the scooter off for
a long period.
This does not indicate the actual charging state of the batteries!
If the pointer is in the red area of the display at the end of the journey,
the batteries must be charged before continuing the journey.
Disregarding this can lead to destruction of the batteries!
Determining the actual charging state:
Drive at a constant speed for about 200 m along a straight level
route. The value shown by the display during the journey is the
actual battery charge state.
29
Downloaded from www.Manualslib.com manuals search engine
Driving information
7.4.2 Driving range
The driving range is dependent on the following conditions in
addition to battery charge:
- landscape conditions (level or steep)
- weight of user
- weather conditions (cold, rain)
- driving with headlights (if fitted) - low consumption LED lights on Mini S
For this reason, information about the driving range is only given as a
guideline. The more experienced you are , the easier it will be for you
to determine the driving range using the battery charging state.
You will be able to achieve the best possible driving range if you:
• ensure that the tyres are inflated correctly
• avoid steep inclines as much as possible
• do not carry any unnecessary luggage
• drive at an even speed
• do not accelerate or brake unnecessarily.
The driving range will be decreased if you:
• drive with headlights
• drive in cold weather
• drive in hilly regions
NOTE
please see the information about batteries in the Appendix.
7.4.3 Overdischarge protection - battery protection
In order to protect the batteries from over-discharging, the control unit
switches off. This takes place when the battery voltage falls
below 17 Volts.
Display:
the battery charger display pointer is pointing to
the left at the end of the red area.

Things to know
12.0 Things to know
12.1 The battery charger - functioning principle
The battery charger regulates the voltage
(Volt) and the current (Ampere) from your
mains connection down to the voltage
required for charging your batteries (24 Volt).
The amount of charging current required is
dependent on the charging state of the
discharged batteries.
Batteries mostly discharged
=
more charging current
Batteries half discharged
=
decreased charging current
Batteries completely charged
=
no charging current
Since no charging current is flowing when the batteries are full,
the batteries cannot be overcharged.
12.2 The Batteries
The entire power supply is taken over by
two cycle-proof 12 V batteries.
The Scooter is fitted with 22 Ah
(Amp-hour) batteries.
Only enclosed maintenance-free deep cycle
batteries are used.
The batteries located in the removable
battery case beneath the seat.
• The 22 Ah batteries are located in one
battery case
The battery case fitted with 22 Ah batteries
is fitted with its own charging socket. This
means that it is possible to charge the
batteries when separated from the scooter
(Chapter 11.1.2).

Things to know
12.2.1
What are batteries for cyclic use?
Batteries for cyclic use are designed, in contrast to starter batteries as
used in cars, so that they deliver continuous energy over a longer
period of time and allow a considerable number of charging cycles.
12.2.2
When do the batteries achieve their maximum performance?
Fixed cycle batteries achieve a maximum performance after four or five
charging and discharging cycles. Only at this point is their internal
chemical equilibrium achieved so that they can produce maximum
performance and service life.
12.2.3
How do I make sure the batteries achieve their best service life?
• Always charge your batteries completely after use.
• Charge your batteries regularly.
• Only store completely charged batteries in the vehicle.
