Question about Razor E100 Electric Scooter
Scooter is less then 6 months old. The charger says it has a full charge, but the power switch light on the scooter itself is not working.

Yes, probably the batteries have come to the end of their useful life. Age of batteries is one indicator that helps in diagnosis.
The following refers to Sealed Lead Acid batteries:
Most important is the question how have the batteries been treated in those 6 months?
• Was an intelligent battery charger used that helps keep the batteries from getting hot during charge cycles and shuts off when it senses the batteries are fully charged?
• Were the batteries charged frequently & immediately, especially after prolonged usage that runs the battery down?
•Were the batteries allowed to cool for an hour or more before charging? Heat will damage batteries and it is helpful (although impractical) to try and keep batteries cool by taking breaks during use.
•Was the battery pack left in a discharged state for an extended period of time? Batteries can also go bad if left idle for a long period of time; sediments shall collect at the bottom of the battery shorting out the lead plates inside.
•Was the charger left on to keep charging the batteries, even after they were fully charged? Over-charging reduces life span.
•Batteries store & work best in the 70 degree range. Any deviation induces less efficiency, until storage in extremes, either high or low (freezing), can cause premature failure.
So if yours are Sealed Lead Acid batteries, & they were subject to any one or more of the above conditions, it\'s not unreasonable to assume that they should be replaced.
Batteries last between about 50 & 200 charge cycles, depending on how they were stored, used & treated/maintained.
I bought my batteries in April & ignored them until October. Now I am taking good care of them. I am documenting usage to determine how badly I damaged them as a result of neglect. I feel certain that I shall get reduced usage as a result of the neglect.
Learn from the error of my ways!
