Question about Transport Schwinn Rechargeable Portable Scooter
I just got a real deal on a Schwinn S180 off Craigslist. $50... At least until I got it home and it won't charge. The charger says red light means dead, yellow light means 80% charged, green light means charged. Well, it's been red for 3 days now... When I unplug it, turn the scooter on and try the throttle (I guess it's the throttle, on the left handlebar!) I get nothing...
So, what is the first suspect? The charger? Or the batteries? The previous owner said his kids rode the thing up and down his country driveway 100's of times until they just put it up about a year ago and it's set in a barn since that time.
NashvilleDan, this scooter has 2 12v 10 amp batteries in series, you should read over 24 volts at the charging hub if the batteries are good. I would think that if the scooter sat for over a year you have bad batteries, They can be purchased at battery plus.

I understand that lead acid batteries do not do well if you deep discharge them.....probably a wrong choice for a scooter like this...need new batteries, would be my guess...just my $.02.
