Make Money Charging Electric Scooters: How Much Can You Really Earn?

With the growing popularity of electric scooters, many people are looking for a lucrative side hustle by becoming scooter chargers. These chargers, also known as juicers or hunters, help keep the scooter fleets of companies like Lime and Bird charged and ready for riders. But how much can you really make charging electric scooters? In this article, we'll take a closer look at the earning potential, requirements, and tips for success in this unique gig economy job.

#Earning Potential for Charging Electric Scooters

The amount you can earn charging electric scooters largely depends on the company, your location, and the demand for the service in your area. Generally, you can expect to earn anywhere from $3 to $10 per scooter, with some chargers earning upwards of $20 per scooter during peak times. However, these numbers can vary widely based on factors like scooter availability and competition among chargers.

For example, if you're working with a company that offers a base pay of $5 per scooter, charging ten scooters per night would yield earnings of $50. Depending on the time needed for collection, charging, and redeployment, this could range from a few hours to an overnight process. Ultimately, how much you make will depend on your efficiency and dedication to the task at hand.

#Requirements and Tips for Success

To become a scooter charger, you'll need to meet a few basic requirements:

  1. Be at least 18 years old.

  2. Have a valid driver's license and access to a vehicle for scooter transportation.

  3. Own a smartphone to locate and scan scooters using the company's app.

  4. Have the ability to charge multiple scooters at your home overnight.

Once you meet these requirements, you can sign up to become a scooter charger through the company's app or website. As a charger, you'll have to:

  1. Locate and collect low-battery scooters using the app's map.

  2. Bring the scooters home to charge.

  3. Redeploy the charged scooters to designated locations by the company's specified deadline, usually early in the morning.

Here are some tips to increase your earning potential and efficiency as a scooter charger:

  1. Know your area: Familiarize yourself with the best spots to find and deploy scooters, and stay updated on any events or changes in your city that may impact scooter usage.

  2. Organize your charging setup: Invest in a power strip or charging station to charge multiple scooters simultaneously, saving time and energy.

  3. Prioritize high-payout scooters: Spend your time and resources on the most profitable scooters. However, don't ignore lower-payout scooters, as they can quickly add up.

  4. Develop a routine: Establish a consistent schedule for collecting, charging, and deploying scooters to maximize your earning potential.


Charging electric scooters can be a profitable side gig for individuals looking for flexible work in the gig economy. With the proper planning, organization, and dedication, you can turn this opportunity into a significant source of supplemental income.
