The Charger for Quingo Flyte, Plus, Classic, Vitess 2
When the charger for these models is plugged into the mains the red light will come on and will remain on constantly until the power is switched off.
Once the charger is connected to the scooter, it will begin charging and the light will glow yellow/orange in colour. When the charge is close to completion the light will glow green.
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.
