battery charger for E-Max Sport electric scooter

I'm looking for a battery charger for my E-Max Sport scooter. The 2 chargers that came with it malfunctioned. The charger is 48 volt with a 3-prong plug.

Re: battery charger for E-Max Sport electric scooter

hiya,

when the charger that came with my emax gave up the ghost, i bought one of these:
ebay item (Lead Acid Battery Charger ( 10Amp,48Vdc,230Vac )) and wired the old standard IEC prong to it.

i would highly recommend getting a battery balancer or individual chargers for the batteries if you intend to stick with lead acid batteries though. the above charger will charge lithium no worries (mine does atm) as long as you have a bms. depends on your plans as to whether this is useful though.

Yup, you have lots of plugs now, so any charger the right voltage will work. I like a 4 amp one I got at monsterscooterparts a lot. it's quicker.

Be the pack leader.

Is it the later version of e-max charger that comes in a finned aluminum case?

The older e-max chargers (blue plastic case) can often be be fixed and made reliable fairly easily.

I have been fixing them for others for a while.

the smallest of the new chargers is 15A.
the new chargers use andreson connectors, where as the ports for the old emax use IEC power plugs.

tbh, the new emax chargers aren't any better than say the kipoint ones (but still a huge improvement over the original emax chargers).

Re: battery charger for E-Max Sport electric scooter

I've gone through 3 Kasea chargers on my eMax now. Thinking about upgrading to LiPo and/or 60 volt.

Paul, what do you charge for repair of these chargers? Any latest info on suppliers of new ones or a high quality generic/adjustable charger that I could use for either 48v or 60v?

Re: battery charger for E-Max Sport electric scooter

Paul, what do you charge for repair of these chargers?

Are they the blue box (with 2-prong plug) kind? If it is the usual blown inrush suppressor and input rectifier filter capacitors, $20 each. About 20% of the time the failure is in the control circuit and is not reparable. I have three blue box chargers with the capacitor and inrush suppressor upgrades that have been working fine for 3-4 years now.

Good to hear there is someone else except me who still has a running e-max. It took 4 years, but I have finally cleared all the bugs out of my two e-maxs, and with the LiFePO4's, they have been running very reliably.
