ALL THE ANSWERS TO YOUR QUESTIONS
WHAT IS A 3 WHEELERS?
Officially called “electric assistance bike” (EVA), the electric bike is equipped with:
an electric motor (not gasoline) not exceeding 500 watts and a rechargeable battery. When the driver does not use the electric motor, the pedelec must be able to pedal like a conventional bike
a handlebars and pedals
2 or 3 wheels in contact with the ground
The 3 Wheelers differs from an electric scooter in its shape and size and it is closer to a vehicle for people with Reduced Mobility. It still has several features of an electric scooter, including its maximum speed of 32 km/h, its handlebars and its brakes. For these reasons, the 3 Wheelers is appreciated by many, since it remains more powerful and thus, more fun than a Mobility Scooter (4 wheels).
DO I NEED A LICENSE TO RIDE A 3 WHEELERS?
The same regulations as a gas scooter or an electric scooter apply. It is therefore necessary to hold a class 6D driver’s license for the 14 to 17 age group only.
A 3 WHEELERS, HOW DOES IT WORK?
The 3 Wheelers, simply, runs on batteries. Generally, the number of batteries varies between 4 and 5. Here is how the models are classified:
4 batteries of 12V: it is a 3 wheelers with 48V for a range of about 45km per charge.
5 batteries of 12V: it is a 3 wheelers with 60V for a range of about 60 km per charge.
As you will have understood, the higher the number of batteries, the greater the autonomy (on a battery charge). Wattage is the strength of the engine. The more powerful the vehicle, the easier it will be when the route is inclined. To move forward, it is necessary to turn the acceleration handle, to brake it is necessary to press on the brake levers, like a bicycle. The 3 Wheelers is always equipped with a front light, turn signals, brake lights, mirrors and a battery level indicator.
When the scooter is fully discharged, use the charger to plug into a standard 120 Volts outlet. It is recommended not to use an extension (or the smaller the better).
HOW ARE THE BATTERIES CONNECTED?
The batteries (4 or 5) are connected in series. To connect the batteries in series, it is necessary to invert the polarities (+ and -) from one battery to another, that is to say, from positive to negative. In some cases, a vehicle may require serial and parallel connection. For more information on batteries, see FAQ “A 3 Wheelers, how does it work?”
WHAT IS THE LIFE OF MY BATTERIES?
The life of your batteries is about 250 to 300 charges. This is equivalent to about 3 years.
HOW TO CONSERVE YOUR BATTERIES?
To conserve your batteries, they must be recharged at least every month, even when you do not use them a lot, or not at all. A battery connected to a circuit discharges about 3% per day. So, after a month of inactivity, it will usually be flat. Never recharge the batteries for more than 24 hours. In winter, you must follow this procedure as well. See also FAQ “What is winter maintenance”
WHEN SHOULD I CHARGE MY 3 WHEELERS?
It must be understood, above all, that the life of your batteries is about 250 to 300 charges. Thus, every time you plug them, you decrease their life. For this reason, it is recommended to wait until your batteries are sufficiently discharged. To know the level of your batteries, rely on your indicator on the dashboard.
Attention: For an excellent management of your batteries, we recommend to manage your displacements and to calculate the mileage traveled (approximately), in order to avoid running out of batteries during your displacements.
WHAT IS THE COST OF THE BATTERIES?
The cost of the batteries depends on the amperage (AH). As an example, a 12-amp battery will retail for about $50.00 while a 20-amp battery will retail for about $ 70.00.
CAN I ADD AN ADDITIONAL BATTERY?
For several reasons, it is not at all advisable to install more batteries on an electric vehicle than what was originally intended by the manufacturer or the merchant. Indeed, this will significantly increase the weight of the vehicle, which may weaken the chassis of it.
However, if you absolutely want to increase the battery capacity on your vehicle, it is essential to never exceed the required voltage. Otherwise, you risk “short-circuiting” the control box, or even igniting the wiring.
MY BATTERIES HAVE SWOLLEN, WHY?
A charger left for more than 24 hours on a charge may cause the batteries to swell. Thus, it is important to know that the charger does not stop charging until it reaches the required amperage level.
This is why if one of the batteries proves to be defective, it will cause an overload, which will result in the boosting of the other batteries.
