I'm new to the boards and new to owning an electric scooter.
At the beginning of June, I purchased the iZip Fusion 1000. Since then, I have logged roughly 60 miles on it. I have come up with a number of questions. I hope some of you might be able to help me with answering them.
1. I live in the greater Cleveland area, where the local joke is "Don't like the weather? Wait 5 minutes." One of the things I'd like to investigate is the potential to do some weatherproofing to my scooter. Has anyone made any attempts at this?
2. Has anyone tried hooking up their scooter's charger up through a Kill-a-watt device to see how much electricity it actually uses?
If so, does the charger draw much when its not plugged into the scooter?
If the scooter has a full charge, does it draw much (if any)?
3. Do any companies sell baskets specifically designed for use with this or other similar scooters? I actually do my grocery shopping on my scooter and it would make things easier if I had a rear-mounted basket. What about other accessories?
4. Has anyone attempted to refit one of these (or a similar model of scooter) with Lithium-Ion batteries instead of the stock SLA batteries? Would there be any benefit to attempting to use Lithium-Ion over SLA?
Thanks for any assistance,
