How Long Does it Take for an Electric Scooter to Charge?

With the increasing popularity of electric scooters as an eco-friendly and convenient mode of transportation, one of the most common questions asked by potential buyers and users is - how long does it take for an electric scooter to charge? The answer to this question depends on various factors such as battery capacity, charger type, and scooter model. Typically, electric scooters take between 2 to 8 hours to fully charge, with faster charging options available for certain models. Read on for a deeper insight into charging times and tips on conserving battery life.

Factors Affecting Charging Time

  1. Battery Capacity: The time it takes to charge an electric scooter largely depends on the size of its battery. Smaller batteries, usually found in entry-level scooters, take less time to charge, while larger batteries in more powerful scooters require more time.

  2. Charger Type: The type of charger being used can also impact charging time. Most electric scooters come with a standard charger that provides between 1 to 2 amps of power. However, some scooters are compatible with fast chargers, which can charge the battery at a faster rate, cutting down on charging time.

  3. Scooter Model: Different electric scooter models have different charging times due to variations in battery capacity and charger compatibility. It’s essential to check the manufacturer’s specifications to determine the estimated charging time for your specific scooter model.

Typical Charging Times for Electric Scooters

As mentioned earlier, most electric scooters take between 2 to 8 hours to charge fully. Here are some typical charging times for popular scooter models:

  • Xiaomi M365: 5-6 hours
  • Segway Ninebot ES4: 7 hours
  • Razor E200: 4 hours
  • Glion Dolly: 3-4 hours
  • Gotrax GXL: 4 hours

Tips for Conserving Battery Life

To make the most out of your electric scooter’s battery life, consider the following tips:

  1. Avoid aggressive acceleration and high speeds as they drain the battery faster.
  2. Regularly check tire pressure, as under-inflated tires can lead to higher energy consumption.
  3. Whenever possible, plan your route to avoid steep inclines that require more power to climb.
  4. Turn off all accessories (lights, displays, etc.) when the scooter is not in use.
  5. Maintain your scooter by cleaning it regularly and ensuring all components are in good working order.


The time it takes to charge an electric scooter depends on factors such as battery capacity, charger type, and scooter model. Generally, charging times range from 2 to 8 hours. To minimize charging time and maximize battery life, consider using a fast charger if compatible, and employ various strategies to conserve battery life during use.
