Supercharge Your Scooter: How to Make an Electric Mobility Scooter Go Faster

Designed for safety and stability, these scooters often have speed limits to ensure a secure ride for their users. However, some people may find themselves craving a little extra speed. If you're interested in making your electric mobility scooter go faster, there are a few modifications you can make, but always prioritize safety while doing so.



  1. Check the Speed Limiter
    The speed limiter is a built-in feature on many scooters that caps your scooter's maximum speed. First, consult your scooter's owner's manual to determine if this feature exists on your scooter. If so, follow the instructions provided to adjust or disable the limiter. Keep in mind that altering the limiter may void your scooter's warranty.



  2. Replace the Batteries
    Swapping out your scooter's standard batteries for high-performance lithium batteries can increase your scooter's power. When purchasing new batteries, ensure they are compatible with your scooter's motor and electrical components. Note that upgrading your batteries may not drastically alter your scooter's top speed but can help maintain maximum speed for a longer duration.



  3. Upgrade the Motor




Upgrading your scooter's motor can provide a significant boost in speed. Look for a motor with a higher wattage, voltage, or both. Ensure that the new motor is compatible with your scooter's frame, electrical system, and weight capacity. Consult a professional if you are unsure about compatibility or the installation process.



  1. Change the Sprockets
    Swapping to larger front and smaller rear sprockets will improve your scooter's top speed, albeit at the expense of acceleration. This modification is more suitable for those who prioritize higher speeds over quick acceleration.



  2. Optimize Tire Pressure
    Maintaining optimal tire pressure will decrease rolling resistance and improve your scooter's acceleration and maximum speed. Refer to your owner's manual for the recommended tire pressure, and regularly check and adjust the pressure as needed.




Always remember that increasing the speed of your electric mobility scooter can have drawbacks, such as reduced stability, decreased battery life, and potential legal issues. Consult a professional or your manufacturer's guidelines before making any modifications, prioritize safety, and follow local laws and regulations regarding mobility scooter speed.
