We offer three different lithium-ion (li-ion) batteries. These can be installed/removed in seconds, and can be used as main or back-up batteries. The ranges were established with a 100 kg (220-lb) load on level pavement. The range may vary depending on rider weight, surface and grade (upward or downward slope).
151 WH LITHIUM-ION BATTERY (3 lbs):
The 3-pound 151Wh lithium-ion battery is designed for the TravelScoot ™ Shopper, but can be used as the primary or back-up battery in all other TravelScoot ™ models. This battery also complies with the stricter, 160Wh capacity limit imposed by some airlines in deviation for IATA rules.
Range: 8 miles or 13 km
274 Wh LITHIUM-ION BATTERY (4 lbs):
Light-weight (4 lbs), air-travel-approved lithium-ion battery; Included with the TravelScoot Deluxe.

Dangerous Goods Lithium-Ion Batteries
All lithium-ion (li-ion) batteries are considered hazardous material (Dangerous Goods). As such, they are subject to restrictions when carried on board passenger aircraft, shipped by mail or cargo, etc.
Taking your TravelScoot on board aircraft
The carriage of lithium-ion powered mobility devices by persons with walking disabilities on board passenger planes has largely been settled. Please see „Traveling with mobility scooters – Airline & ICAO Guidance“.
Shipping electric vehicles
Shipping batteries is considerably more complicated. Numerous regulations apply to the quantity, capacity and total weight of batteries per package, and whether the batteries are being shipped alone or with the device they operate (scooter, wheelchair etc.). Further regulations apply to shipping mode (whether by ground or air, and whether by cargo or passenger aircraft). All shipments containing lithium-ion batteries must be identified with official Dangerous Goods labeling.
In order to even be eligible for shipment and transport, all li-ion batteries must have successfully passed testing per UN38.3 by an internationally accredited testing facility. All batteries carrying the TravelScoot ™ brand name have been tested accordingly.
Only li-ion batteries with a capacity of 100Wh or less, and no more than two per package, can be shipped without special markings or dangerous goods surcharges. However, these packages must still be identified with the standard battery symbols. These low-capacity batteries are not suitable for use in personal mobility devices or similar electric vehicles. The shipment of electric scooters and vehicles will always require compliance with Dangerous Goods regulations and, unfortunately, often high surcharges.All rights reserved - This information is provided with guaranty of accuracy
