    Ya.... cordless... I have many cordless tools, drills, hedge trimmer, etc, but ya know what, the batteries go dead and you have to recharge them.

    So tell me, have you seen a recharging port for electric snowmobiles? I haven't, and I live Wisconsin where we have winter.

    I drive a Mazda 3. When I used to commute 102 miles a day -- round trip -- its 38 mpg saved Me a ton of money. Particularly when gas was nearly $4 a gallon.

    Would I buy an electric scooter to put around on?

    Fuck no.

    I would, however; buy one of these.



    If I can get to work and back on a single charge, the savings I would have on My now 34-mile round trip commute would still save Me money and I can fill up on a tank and drive nearly an entire month.

    I don't give a crap about the moronic environmental argument. I care about saving money.

    Besides, My woman would totally believe I bought this for us!

    Read the link they are in the early stages, knowing guys in Wisconsin just put chargers by bars they are in there forever..


    BTW I was just reading yesterday about how much money you could make owning a recharge place.

    The entire point of my thread you buy an electric scooter for $500 ~ $3,000 how long does the batteries last and how much?

    Read about one that takes 360 charges and cost a grand, so you will have to replace the batteries after a few years, will it be like printers that the ink cost almost as much as the printer itself????

    Check after market sources. It's been my experience they are available and a lot cheaper but not as good. They do work though.

    my father in law and mother in law had a scooter each

    they ran along time on a charge

    eventually i replaced batteries for them

    they ran about a hundred bucks a piece

    the last one i bought was a couple of years ago

    since then dad has died

    gave his scooter to my sister and they have not had to do any work on it
