HOW YOUR SMART SCOOTER WORKS
Powering Up Your Smart Scooter
To start your Smart Scooter, you must press the power button which is next to the charging port. Please see the self balancing scooter illustration on the left for visuals.
To charge the Smart Scooter you have to plug one end of the charger into the power source and make sure the charger green light is normally lit up, then plug the other end into the Smart Scooter.
A red charger indicator on the self balancing scooter shows normal charging. Or you should check if the lines are in good connection. Please see the self balancing scooter illustration on the left for visuals.
A change of charger light from red to green shows a full charge and then charging should be stopped as charging for too long may result in reduction of battery life. Charging is NOT allowed when the self balancing scooters’ charging port is wet.
STEPPING ON YOUR SMART SCOOTER
Stepping On -Stand directly behind your Smart Scooter. Place one foot on the Rubber Foot Mat, keeping the instep of your foot where it meets the middle of the rubber mat.
Staying Balanced – Find your center of gravity on the self balancing electric scooter. If your weight is distributed correctly on the foot mats, and your center of gravity is level, you should be able to stand on your Smart Scooter, just as if you were standing on the ground.
IF NOT, you may feel like you are moving in a particular direction, turning, spinning in place, wobbling back and forth, or simply uncomfortable with the self balancing scooter.
NOTE – On average, it takes 3-5 minutes just to get comfortable standing on the Smart Scooter and maintaining proper balance. Having a spotter will help you feel more secure.
The Smart Scooter is an incredibly intuitive device; it senses even the slightest bit of motion, so having any anxiety or reservation about stepping on may cause you to panic and trigger movement that is not otherwise natural to you. The best way to overcome that initial anxiety is by having a spotter.
TIP – Stay relaxed, stand evenly, and apply an equal amount of pressure on both sides of the device. Relax your muscles as much as you can. Taking a deep breath and exhaling can help you achieve this.
Slightly bending your knees can also help. Once you can stand IDLE and STOP, you are ready for the next step.
When you first begin using your Smart Scooter, the fastest way to move in your desired direction is to focus in that direction.
You will notice that just thinking about which way you would like to go will shift your center of gravity, and that subtle movement will propel you in that direction.
NAVIGATING YOUR SMART SCOOTER
This self balancing scooter uses gyroscope sensors to enable self-balancing. The inner workings of the scooter use gyro sensors, a 350Watt motor and a set of rechargeable Lithium-ion batteries.
Users can control the two wheel electric scooter to go forward, accelerate, decelerate , break or others, by leaning forward or leaning backwards.
A person can ride in a standing or crouching position, propelling themselves by the two electric motorised wheels. It’s easy to learn concept is designed to take you anywhere with hands-free self-balance control and two models to suit all types of users.
Lean forward to go forward and back again to stop or go backwards—It couldn’t get any simpler than that!
Control the speed you want with your body. The more you lean forward the faster you go.
The Smart Scooter is an incredibly intuitive device; it senses even the slightest bit of motion. In order to make a turn you need to slightly turn your legs without taking your feet off the Smart Scooter foot pad.
If you need to turn left, you have to slightly move your right foot to the left. To turn right you are also required to slightly turn your left foot to the right. It is that simple. Again this is done without taking your feet off the foot pedal.
With the Smart Scooter you can make 360 degree turns. To make a clockwise turn you have to slightly turn your left foot to the right and move your right foot in the backward opposite direction. To make an anti-clockwise turn you have to slightly move your right foot to the left and move your left foot in the backward opposite direction.
GETTING OFF YOUR SMART SCOOTER
The Dismount – Stepping off of the Smart Scooter can be one of the easiest steps, yet when done improperly, may cause you to fall.
To properly dismount, from a stopped position, lift one leg up and set your foot back down on the ground (STEPPING BACK). Then step off completely.
When stepping off the Smart Scooter you should not step off the self balancing scooter going forward. This may cause you to slip and fall so it is advised to follow the Smart Scooter diagram and procedures. Please see the self balancing scooter illustration on the left for visuals.
Getting off the Smart Scooter, you have to remain stationary and balanced. Get one of your foot off it and the other one quickly off the pedal. To grasp the instructions visually please see the self balancing scooter illustrations on the left.
