How many hours does a fully charged battery last for? What’s the life time of a battery? How long until it would need to be replaced?

Asked by: Nikki75761
Thank you for your inquiry. The Scout 4 is rated to go up to 9 miles. The rating is done with standard testing procedures and is used to compare with other scooters of Drive and other manufactures. A user should not expect to go that far. Distance has many factors involved, Weight of the persons, type of terrain, and condition of the battery, speed traveling and temperature. A properly maintain set of batteries will last at least a year. Thank you again Jazmin @ Drive.

Scout 4 is rated 3.3 out of 5 by 12.
Rated 1 out of 5 by from A real bone shaker! Yesterday the Scout scooter was delivered. I assembled it and took it for a short drive, it shook every bone in my osteoarthritic ridden body! I felt the bone jarring affect when it went over the slightest bump on the footpath. It was then I realised that it had no suspension whatsoever and the small solid tyres didn't help at all. I was really looking forward to doing my shopping and visiting my doctor, but because of the unpleasant bone shaking experience I'm feeling very apprehensive about riding it ! I certainly would not recommend the scout scooter to anyone I'm going to try and get a refund .

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Gets the job done, could be better Pros: Good battery life Good torque Good traction Quiet Cons: Uncomfortable seat Difficult to tilt handlebars Cramped at highest seat position (I'm only 5'2") Terrible turning radius Hard tires = bumpy ride Seating position is very far back, which gives good traction, but causes tipping and wheelies on steep slopes Slow acceleration When backing, if you hit something and let go of the controls, the motor doesn't stop immediately... this resulted in tipping me over when I backed into a curb, but it didn't stop, and it sent me tumbling onto the sidewalk

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Scout 4 I've read the comments on turning radius, I as well felt this was a real issue but after further research I found the is a a button or dial on or at the bottom of the steering shaft which allows for turn on a dime adjustment. My issue is ride height, they specifically state "good for all terrain" but there is so little ground clearance I can't drive it on my Arizona rock-scape, my purchase was made specifically for such so I could do weeding as I have chronic breathing issues and can't walk it any longer. I'm going to hold recommendation or not after I've spoken with a CSR.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Don't feel safe I thought a 4 wheel scooter would be safer. Wrong. The steering is very loose. You go over a bump the stering is jerked out if your hands. Sometimes it feels like it is going to tip over. Sending this one back.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Just what I needed 1. I bought this scooter for my wife who has a bad knee and cannot walk to our football games (1-1 1/2 miles)-RESULTS: with a range of 9-12 miles, has worked well without discharging the battery. 2. I wanted a scooter that could be disassembled and fit in the bed of my Avalanche truck w/ cover. RESULTS: Disassembles into 4 parts, fits into bed of truck neatly. 3. Needed a scooter that can run quickly and has pulling power- RESULTS: To date, have used on paved parking lots, sidewalks, grass, driveways, elevators, etc. Runs well and without problems. Moves at around 4-5 mph with a 160# load on a smooth surface. Have climbed up to 4-5 degree slopes without a problem. 4. Having a hard time staying up with my wife when she scoots and I walk- RESULTS: I am buying a second scooter, which will fit in the bed of the truck with cover on. I tow the Avalanche with a 40' Motor Home, and it works well for us wherever we go. 5. Read some complaints about rough ride- RESULTS- slow down when you transition from drive to street or grass- stay of rocky terrain- it is NOT a vehicle for rocks, mud, etc. It rides smooth enough for my wife and I. 6. Needed something reliable- RESULTS- Purchased for under $1,000 with a 5 year warranty- can't beat that!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from It's better than I expected I really wanted to try it before I bought it. But it was better then I expected. The assembly was easy. The batteries were fully charged and I was able to take it for a test drive within 1/2 hour after I received it. The only thing I don't like is the turning radius. I would have liked it to have been smaller. So far, I love it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Able to take my dog for walks Since it has become so difficult to walk any distance I had difficulty taking my dog for his walks. My Scout Scooter has made it a joy to take him outside for his walks.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Interesting to say the least! It's a pretty little thing, for sure. Easy to put together and if you want to put some confusion in the mix, just change the trim color from red to blue or vise versa. Not alota power though but then again it's not made to carry a 275 pound fat man around the world either. All in all its a good little scooter for a small but frail person.
