I just got this VECTRIX scooter a few days ago, already have 200 miles on it! It really climbs hills great, wish it had a higher capacity LITHIUM battery, and possibility of perhaps 70 mph for short periods. With much difficulty, I have installed speakers an an XM satellite radio tuner with power amplifier. I am investigating lithium battery conversion possibilities, looking for at least 40 amp-hours.-Bob
