the battery and could be dangerous.
Do not remove any fuse links (if fitted) from the
battery harnesses. If the fuse links appear damaged,
contact your authorized provider.
Do not operate the scooter with depleted batteries;
you could be stranded.
Reduce your speed, do not make any sharp turns and
maintain a stable center of gravity while turning
/cornering. To prevent tipping, avoid shifting your
weight in the opposite direction of a turn.
While driving up inclines or low curbs, drive your
scooter straight on with the wheels perpendicular to
the incline and/or low curb; both front wheels should
contact the incline/low curb at the same time. To
reduce the possibility of a fall, do not drive at an
angle; do not get one wheel or side of the scooter on
the incline/low curb first. Always exercise extreme
caution when negotiating an incline.
Do not travel up or down potentially hazardous
surfaces and/or inclines, including but not limited to
areas covered with snow, ice, cut grass, or wet
leaves.
When climbing an incline, try to keep the scooter
moving. If stopping is necessary, start up again
slowly and then accelerate with caution.

control the speed of your descent.
The maximum recommended incline angles (see
specifications) are tested in a controlled
environment. Your scooter’s ability to climb up
inclines is affected by your weight, speed and the
angle you approach the incline among other factors.
Only drive backwards on a flat surface. When driving
backwards, operate your scooter at a lower and even
speed. Stop often and check to make sure your path
is clear of obstacles. To prevent tipping, do not travel
down an incline or ramp backwards.
To avoid overloading the scooters and potential
tipping, never carry anything or fill the basket with
contents weighing more than 15lbs (6.8kg).
Avoid any change of position or movement that may
change your center of gravity while sitting on the
scooter. This may cause your scooter to tip.
A drop-off (as small as 2 inches) at the bottom of a
slope can stop a front wheel and cause the scooter to
tip forward.
Never reach or lean if you must shift your weight
sideways or rise up off the seat.
Never reach or lean if you must move forward in your
seat to do so. Always keep your buttocks in contact
with the backrest.
Never try to pick up an object from the floor by
reaching down between your knees.
Never reach or lean over the top of the seat back.
This may damage the backrest and cause you to fall.
Do not use the armrests for any weight bearing
purposes. Such use may cause the scooter to tip,
which may result in a fall from the scooter and
personal injury.
Do not put all of your weight on one side of the
scooter deck. Such use may cause the scooter to tip.

handling greater obstacles, we recommend that you
do not attempt to negotiate a curb that has a height
greater than 2” (5cm). Doing so could cause
instability in your scooter. Riding over curbs or
obstacles can cause tipping and serious bodily harm.
If you have any doubt that you can safely cross any
curb or obstacle, ALWAYS ASK FOR HELP. Be
aware of your riding skills and personal limitations.
You may need to remove or cover threshold strips
between rooms and install a ramp at entry or exit
doors.
Do not try to climb an obstacle when on an incline.
Do not drive over an obstacle with just one wheel.
Do not drive on uneven terrain and/or soft surfaces.
Do not drive near tall grass that can entangle the
running gear.
Avoid driving on loosely packed gravel and/or sandy
surfaces.
Do not use your scooter on or near railroad tracks or
crossings.
Do not ride your scooter along the edges of streams,
lakes, or the ocean. Never use your scooter to cross
waterways.
If you feel unsure about a driving surface, avoid that
surface.
Do not expose your scooter to open flames.
Keep your scooter in a dry and clean condition. Never
take your scooter into a shower, tub, pool, or sauna.
Rain, snow, salt, mist/spray conditions, and
icy/slippery surfaces can damage the scooter
components or cause the scooter frame to
prematurely rust.
Avoid prolonged exposure to heat or cold; it may
affect the temperature of upholstered and nonupholstered components on the scooter. Exercise
caution when using your scooter in extremely hot or

cold conditions.
Do not tow your scooter. Towing may exceed the
maximum speed threshold, resulting in damage to
critical components of the scooter.
Use extreme caution when it is necessary to move an
unoccupied scooter up or down stairs. Remove the
seat, batteries, and any accessories before
attempting the transfer. Use proper lifting techniques
and use only solid, non-removable frame components
to lift the scooter with multiple physically capable
attendants. Do not lift or move your scooter or
seating system by grasping or holding onto any of its
removable parts, including the armrest(s), seat
cushions, seatback, or shrouds.
When your scooter is used with any type of
lift/elevation devices, always turn off the power of
the scooter; make sure the scooter is not in
“freewheel” mode and do NOT sit on your scooter.
Failure to follow this may result in unintended
movement and personal injury or product damage.
Never use your scooter to negotiate stairs or
escalators.
Never sit on the scooter while it is in a moving
vehicle.
It is dangerous to transfer to and from your scooter
on your own. It requires good balance and agility. Be
aware that there is a point during every transfer
when the seat is not below you.
To make a safe transfer: Always turn off the power
before you transfer to or from your scooter. If you fail
to do so you may touch the throttle control lever and
cause your scooter to move when you do not expect
it. Make sure motor locks are engaged; this keeps
the scooter from moving when you transfer. Work
with your health care professional to learn how to
position your body and how to support yourself

during a transfer. Have someone help you until you
are sure you do a safe transfer on your own. Move
your scooter as close as you can to the seat you are
transferring to. Transfer as far back onto the seat
surface as you can. This will reduce the risk that you
will miss the seat or fall.
Never transport the scooter in the front seat of a
vehicle. It may shift and interfere with the driver.
Always secure the scooter so that it cannot roll or
shift.
Should the fittings on your seating system become
loose, please call your approved service provider.
Replace worn or damaged upholstery immediately to
reduce the risk of fire hazard.
Be aware that washing of upholstered items may
reduce the fabric’s resistance to flammability.

8.4 OVERLOAD PROTECTION
The overload protection switches the power off when the
motor becomes overloaded while trying to climb over
too high an obstacle, such as a curb or trying to climb
too steep of an incline.
If the motor is overloaded, the following happens:
• The scooter becomes noticeably slower and then stops
• The scooter system shuts down the scooter
To rectify this:
Switch the scooter off and allow it to cool down for a
few minutes.
Push to reset the overload switch located on the
battery box (see diagram).
Switch the scooter on and reverse away from the
obstacle (such as a curb) and then avoid the obstacle.

OPERATING THE SCOOTER
8.6 DRIVING ON AN INCLINE
TIPPING HAZZARD!
When driving on an incline reduce your speed. Lean
your body forward to increase your stability and to avoid
tipping backwards. Always avoid leaning backwards
while driving up an incline. Observe the safe climbing
angle in the product specifications and always access
the driving surface, as this can be a factor for safe
incline driving (For example ice and leaves can cause
loss of wheel traction and prevent safe incline driving).
Avoid stopping and re-starting on an incline if possible.
If you do need to stop, re-start driving very slowly and
then slowly increase your speed smoothly.
Avoid leaning backward
(not recommended).
Lean forwards to increase
stability (recommended).
NOTE: Maximum incline angle = 6 degrees !

As a general rule, you should recharge your batteries as
frequently as possible to assure the longest possible life
and to minimize required charging time. Plan to
recharge them when you do not anticipate using the
equipment.
29
BATTERY AND CHARGING THE BATTERY
The range per battery charge, using recommended
batteries, should be approximately 8 to 12 hours of
typical operation. Extensive use on inclines may
substantially reduce per charge mileage.
9.1 BATTERY STATUS DISPLAY
When the key is switched
“ON”, the battery gauge will
display the battery power
capacity by indicating red,
yellow and green areas
respectively.
Green area indicates a full
charge from the
battery. Red area
indicates low power.
The remaining power
indicated by the battery
gauge will be varied by the actual driving time and how
you drive. Repeated starting, stopping or climbing will
consume the power more quickly.
If the vehicle is under a heavier load, such as fast
acceleration or driving up inclines, the battery status
display may move towards the red zone.
This may not indicate the actual status of the batteries.
After a journey, the battery status display may move
towards the green zone after the scooter has been
turned off for a long period of time.
If a battery status display is in the red zone at the end
of a journey, the battery must be charged
immediately. Otherwise, it can lead to battery damage.

EMI
This portion of the content will provide the user with
basic information about the problems with EMI
(electromagnetic interference), protective measures can
be used to either lessen the possibility of exposure or to
minimize the degree of exposure; this section also
shows some conditions that unexpected or erratic
movements may cause.
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 scooters 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
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 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.
36
EMI
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 (transmitterreceivers with the antenna mounted directly on the
transmitting unit). Examples include: citizens band
(CB) or hand held radios, (security, fire, and police
transceivers), cellular telephones and other personal
communication devices.
NOTE: some cellular telephones transmit a
signal while they are ON, even though they are
not being used.
2. Medium-range mobile transceivers, such as those
used in police cars, fire trucks, ambulances and taxis
usually have the antenna mounted on the outside of
the scooter.
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 player, and cassette players,
and small appliances, such as electric shavers
and hair dryers, are not likely to cause EMI
problems to your powered scooter.
37
POWERED SCOOTER ELECTROMAGNETIC
INTERFERENCE (EMI)
EMI
EM energy rapidly becomes more intense as one moves
closer to a 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
powered scooter’s control system while using these
devices; this can affect your scooters movement and
braking. Therefore, the warnings listed below are
recommended to prevent possible interference with the
control system of a powered scooter.
Electromagnetic interference (EMI) from sources
such as radio and TV stations, amateur radio
(HAM) transmitters, two-way radios, and cellular phones
can affect motorized scooters. Following the warnings
listed below should reduce the chance of unintended
brake release or powered scooter movement which
could result in serious injuries.
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 scooter is turned ON.
2. Be aware of nearby transmitters, such as radio or
TV stations, and try to avoid getting 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 EMI.
5. Report all incidents of unintended movement or
brake release to the scooter manufacturer, and note
whether there were sources of EMI nearby.
38
IMPORTANT INFORMATION
EMI
20 Volts per meter (V/m) is generally a useful
immunity level against EMI (the higher the level, the
greater the protection).
This product has an immunity level of 20 V/m without
any accessories connected to it.
