Charging Your Bird Electric Scooter: A Step-by-Step Guide

Owning a Bird electric scooter provides an eco-friendly and convenient way to navigate urban environments. To maintain its performance, proper charging is key. Here's how to ensure your Bird stays powered up for your next ride.

Step 1: Locate the Charging Port

Find the charging port, typically situated beneath the scooter's deck or near the rear wheel, protected by a rubber flap to prevent debris intrusion.

Step 2: Prepare Your Charger

Use the official Bird charger or a compatible one. Inspect it for any damage before plugging it into a standard electrical outlet.

Step 3: Connect the Charger

Gently insert the charger plug into the scooter’s charging port. Ensure a secure connection to avoid interruptions during the charge cycle.

Step 4: Begin Charging

Once connected, an indicator light on the charger or scooter will display the charging status. Red or orange indicates charging, while green signifies a full charge.

Step 5: Complete the Charge

Bird scooters typically take 4 to 5 hours to fully charge. It’s best to charge overnight or during off-peak hours. Avoid overcharging by unplugging once fully charged.

Step 6: Disconnect Safely

After charging, carefully remove the charger from the port and the outlet. Close the charging port flap to protect it against environmental factors.

Final Tips

  • Regularly charging your scooter can extend its battery life.

  • Always store and charge your scooter in a dry, temperate environment to prevent damage.

By following these simple steps, you will keep your Bird electric scooter ready for your urban adventures, ensuring reliability and longevity of your battery life.
