Personal e-transport

This is currently a skeleton page. Please help by adding your contributions either here or in the associated Discussion page.

This page will cover e-bikes, e-scooters, hoverboards and similar battery-powered personal transport devices.


These devices all contain a battery, controls and/or sensors, control electronics, charging electronics and a motor. Your first task may be to determine which of those needs attention.


These items come with a fairly powerful rechargeable lithium battery. Physically or electrically abused, these can present a serious fire risk. If refurbishing a battery with new cells it's essential that you understand how to correctly charge and balance the cells.
The motor is likely to be quite powerful and the associated gears could cause serious injury to fingers if it started unexpectedly. Disconnect the battery as the first thing you do and reconnect it only at the end.
