Do E-scooters and E-bikes have the greatest range right after charging?
I just noticed that my Evader electric scooter has significantly greater range if I drive it right after the charger finishes its charging cycle. Has anyone else noticed this? Does anyone know why this would be true?
Yes, I have seen the same thing, although I wouldn't use the word "significant". It's more like a few percent. I guess there are basically two reasons, one is that as soon as you stop charging the battery voltage will slowly start falling, and there will be a leakage current internally that drains the battery slowly. The other is that the charging heats up the battery somewhat, which helps. Most battery types perform better at higher temperatures.
If you experience a very big difference in range, you might want to check the scooter so it's not draining the batteries even when it's switched off. There might be a faulty relay or switch so it takes some current always.
