Make Money Charging Electric Scooters: A Gig-Economy Breakdown

In the fast-paced world of gig economy jobs, charging electric scooters has emerged as an innovative way to earn extra cash. Known as 'Juicers' for Lime, or 'Chargers' for Bird, individuals with access to electricity and a bit of free time can make money nightly by recharging these popular modes of urban transportation.

The payment for charging electric scooters largely depends on various factors such as the company you're working for, the city you are in, and the availability of scooters needing to be charged. Generally, companies pay anywhere from $3 to $20 per scooter, with the average being around $5 to $7 per charge. This can add up quickly if you're able to charge multiple scooters a night.

However, your earnings are also influenced by the competition with other chargers, the time of the year, and the specific incentives that scooter companies may offer. During peak usage times or in busy areas, companies may increase the payout per scooter to encourage more charging. In contrast, if there's an oversupply of chargers or a lower demand for scooters, the payment per unit could decrease.

To maximize your earnings, efficiency is key. Successful chargers use strategies such as:

  1. Optimizing routes to collect scooters

  2. Charging multiple scooters simultaneously

  3. Taking advantage of special pricing incentives

  4. Ensuring a high turnaround rate to maximize the number of nightly charges

Remember, as an independent contractor, your actual take-home pay will also factor in the costs associated with the job, including electricity, transportation, and any necessary equipment like charging cables or transport carts.

Fancy joining the ranks of electric scooter chargers? Sign up with your preferred company, download their app, and pass their charger onboarding process. Before you know it, you could be part of the green transportation revolution, earning money while helping to keep electric scooters ready to roll for the next rider.
