After what seemed like an extremely long wait, my Travel Scoot is finally here! I put it together, and can’t wait to start having my own adventures!
I do have a question (already!). I am charging the battery (the li-ion) now. The battery is flashing red quickly continuously, and it is not getting hot. The sheet that came with it doesn’t say what blinking red lights mean, but I think it isn’t charging properly. Has this happened to you?
I hope you are doing well, and planning many fun adventures.
Thank you for your generous offer of help,
I can't wait to hear about your first adventure, no matter how big or small. You're going to experience first-hand how wonderful it is to be mobile and (my favorite part) to feel the breeze in your hair as you zip around.
As for your question about battery charging, it's important that everything is plugged in in the correct order. With the lithium ion battery you plug the charger into the wall first, then plug the charger into the battery. Try that and see if it fixes the problem. When my battery is charging I've never noticed that it gets hot, so I wouldn't be concerned about that part.
If you have the same charger as I do and you have the single size lithium ion battery, when it's charging properly you will see a steady red light and one that flashes. When the battery is fully charged you'll see a green light and a red light. The steady red light is just telling you that the charger is plugged in.
If plugging it in in this order does not fix the problem, contact Tony at TravelScoot (firstname.lastname@example.org) and he'll help you with it.
