We received our Super Turbo 800 Elite last week. In short we’ve really enjoyed it. The scooter has gotten me to work successfully multiple times already so it’s already a couple of bucks into paying for itself!
After our initial review and use of our electric scooter, here are a few things I wanted to point out:
The wiring on the battery is very thick, but progressively shrinks as you go to the speed control (brain) and then to the motor. There is also a loose wire off of the speed control intended for the brake light. When you pull either brake the brain will apply the battery voltage to the “brake light” plug.
No steps have been taken to waterproof or make the scooter water resistant. In fact, there is plenty of ventilation that makes it so you need to be even more cautious. The main area of concern is the “brain” at the front of the scooter. I’ll be making adjustments so that it can at least get me through some light rain.
One of the things that set’s this scooter apart from it’s competition is it’s power. Super Cycle Sales claims it to have a “more accurate rating” than other scooters. From my tests with a watt meter I’ve found that to be very true. In fact the scooter peaks out at 1200+ watts, so 800 watt rating is more the the RMS or continuous consumption or consumption you would have after the scooter reaches it’s top speed and continues at that top speed.
