Step 1: Confirm battery voltage

If you're not sure about the voltage of your scooter battery type (36V, 48V, 52V 60V?), you have to figure it out by checking the label on the battery, or use a multimeter to test the voltage. You cannot use a battery with voltage that does not match with your controller.  For example, if your battery is 36V, you cannot use a 48V battery as your controller cannot operate properly on the wrong battery voltage. If the voltage and current readings are within the manufacturer's specifications, your new battery is ready to use. 


Step 2: Gather the necessary tools

Before you start the battery replacement process, you need to ensure that you have all the necessary tools. The tools required for the process may vary based on the type and model of your electric scooter. However, here are some of the most common tools you will need:


Phillips head screwdriver

Flathead screwdriver

Allen wrenches

New battery pack


Wire cutters

Wire strippers


Step 3: Remove the battery cover

Once you have all the necessary tools, you need to start the battery replacement process by removing the battery cover. The battery cover is usually located under the deck of the scooter. You may need to use a screwdriver or Allen wrench to remove the screws that hold the cover in place.


Step 4: Disconnect the old battery

After removing the battery cover, you need to locate the old battery and disconnect it from the scooter. You should start by removing the wires connected to the battery terminals. 99% scooter batteries come with a power supply plug (normally, it's a connector in yellow), so you just need to unplug it from the controller. In very uncommon cases, you may need to use wire cutters and wire strippers to remove the wires.


Step 5: Remove the old battery

Once you have disconnected the old battery, you can remove it from the scooter. You should be careful while handling the battery as it may contain toxic materials. Make sure to dispose of the old battery in an environmentally friendly manner.


Step 6: Install the new battery

After removing the old battery, you can install the new battery in its place. Make sure to connect the connector to the correct terminals on the battery. You may need to use a soldering iron and solder to connect the wires properly.


Step 7: Test the new battery

Once you have installed the new battery, you need to test it to ensure that it's functioning correctly. You don't have to put all screws back. Just ride the scooter for 10 mins and check if the performance of the scooter is the same as before.  If everything works right, put all screws back to their original postions. You can apply some silicon on the gap of the cover to enhance the overall water-proof ability.



Replacing an electric scooter battery can seem like a daunting task, but with the right tools and a little bit of know-how, it's a straightforward process. By following the steps outlined in this guide, you can replace your scooter's battery and get back to enjoying the freedom of electric scooter travel. If you're still unsure about the process, it's always a good idea to consult the manufacturer's instructions or seek professional help.
