Dont Waste Your Money



Don’t Waste Your Money
As little as​ ten to​ twenty years ago,​ when you brought your car to​ the​ shop for repairs,​ there were shady people that would find more wrong with your car than you realized .​
With the​ increased reports of​ fraud and unhappy consumers,​ the​ governing bodies for auto shops and garages have passed consumer protection laws .​
With this protection,​ garages and auto shops that attempt to​ take advantage of​ the​ customers would face heavy penalties.
As garages and auto shops received word,​ the​ reports of​ such practices have declined dramatically .​
Though there are a​ few here and there,​ they are now among the​ minority.
This practice has unfortunately crossed over or​ migrated to​ other industries .​
It is​ unfortunate that greed and money continues to​ influence how some businesses treat their customers .​
As an​ example; People come into the​ shop all the​ time telling us that they need new batteries .​
We always ask how many and more importantly,​ how do you know that you need new batteries?
With today’s electric scooters,​ the​ batteries are setup in​ a​ series .​
In five years,​ I​ have had to​ replace all the​ batteries in​ a​ multi battery scooter in​ less than a​ handful of​ occasions .​
Approximately ninety five percent of​ the​ time,​ only one battery needs to​ be replaced.
Don’t waste your money .​
When someone tells you that you need to​ replace all of​ your batters in​ your electric scooter,​ follow these tips.
1 .​
Open the​ compartment that houses the​ batteries
2 .​
Make a​ diagram of​ how they are connected; you will want to​ make sure that you reconnect them the​ same way.
3 .​
Disconnect the​ batteries so that each one is​ separate.
4 .​
Now get a​ twelve volt charger so that you can test the​ charge and verify the​ voltage.
a .​
a​ good battery will read between 13.3 and 14.8 volts
b .​
If the​ voltage reads 10 volts or​ below,​ then definitely replace that battery .​
If the​ voltage reads 12 volts and up,​ that battery is​ still questionable in​ our book .​
But,​ it​ does not need immediate replacement.
c .​
If the​ battery charger comes up with a​ fault reading,​ usually it​ will be due to​ bad connection and if​ your connections are right,​ then that battery cannot be charged – Replace the​ battery.
i .​
All this is​ assumed that you have hooked the​ battery up to​ a​ 12 volt battery charger and waited for the​ battery to​ charge completely.
ii .​
We use the​ automatic charger that shuts off if​ there is​ a​ fault or​ when indicates complete charge.
5 .​
Now you know which battery is​ bad and you can replace that battery .​
If the​ other batteries will charge up to​ 13.3 volts or​ higher,​ then those batteries DO NOT need replacing .​
So DON’T WASTE YOUR MONEY
Now that you know which battery is​ giving you grief,​ you can save a​ bundle by taking it​ to​ your local Batteries Plus or​ 1-800 Batteries shop .​
These batteries are standard stock and instead of​ paying up to​ fifty dollars per battery,​ you can get them as​ low as​ twenty-five to​ thirty dollars .​
Dealers will charge you up to​ fifty-five dollars a​ piece,​ so DON’T WASTE YOUR MONEY.
