Thanks for the heads up on this. It could be a deal breaker. An hour is not much. Can the range issue be mitigated or improved by changing the gearing? This scooter seems to have a lot of power, more than is necessary (or allowed) for the playa. Would there be savings by changing the rear gear to something different? Are there other ways of getting more time per charge by trading off power?
Cryptofishist - what kind of range do you see? What kind of scooter do you have? How about you Frenchblue?
