You’ve got a new e-bike or scooter. Before you hop on for a ride, take a moment to read the manual, familiarize yourself with the charging process, and use the equipment provided by the manufacturer.

Remember to plug directly into a wall outlet when charging. If you’re considering a backup battery, always use the manufacturer’s recommended charger and purchase only from reputable retailers. An uncertified battery isn’t just a bad move; it’s dangerous.

Safety is smart. Prevention is power.
