Electric Mobility Scooter Hacked for More Speed

When pumping 60 volts into this Electric Mobility Scooter it turns into tons of fun. Their is no soft start on this thing so as soon as the launch button is pressed the motor springs to life. Interestingly enough this scooter has some drag bars that prevent the thing from flipping over backwards. Not sure how long the motor would last with this voltage but it sure looks like fun while it lasts. They even tested it with a few runs at 72 volts! Doesn’t take long to get up to speed with that voltage. The electronics were slightly modified, a nice large contactor was added to allow a small horn button to control the large load. In the end 72 volts was more than the motor could take and it burnt up.
