The Quingo team have written a helpful guide on how to charge your Air, Compact or Powerbase using both the old and new style chargers. We’ll be discussing other models in the near future so be sure to keep an eye on the Quingo Scooter Users blog. We have also written more of an overview on charging your Quingo which you may also find useful.
Old Style Charger
When the charger is plugged in to the mains, the red light comes on. When the charger is connected to the vehicle, the light will change to a yellow/orange colour to indicate your Quingo is charging.
When the charge is close to completion the light will glow green. This is when you know your Quingo is ready to go and you can remove the charger from the scooter.
New Style Charger
This style charger works the same as the old style charger but the light is in a different place. When the charger is plugged into the mains the red light will illuminate to indicate a flow of electricity. Once it’s connected to your Quingo, the light will turn a yellow/orange colour to indicate charging. When the charge is close to completion the light will glow green.
FAQ’s About Battery Charging
Does the green light indicate that the battery is fully charged at that point?
The green light will illuminate to show the scooter has enough of a charge to be used, but it’s better for battery conditioning if you charge for 12 hours (trickle charge). This helps keep the batteries healthier and will improve longevity.
Tip: for the most effective full charge, leave your Quingo charging overnight, so it is ready to use in the morning.
Does it harm the Quingo batteries if the charger is left on for 24 hours? Will doing this eventually harm the batteries?
The batteries will not be harmed if the scooter is used regularly and given a 24 hour charge in between using it again. However, leaving the scooter on constant charge and not using the scooter may harm the batteries. It’s best to complete the charge cycle and remove the charger from the mains and scooter.
Please note: never leave the battery charger connected and the mains switched off as this will drain the batteries.
