Luggie Scooter is the portable medical devices, so we are the pioneer to integrate lithium battery as the battery system. We deeply understand only the light weight and convenient allows people to carry on the scooter at any time.
Lithium ion batteries, by definition, are energy storage systems. As such, if subjected to abusive conditions, the energy in the systems can be unexpectedly released, thereby presenting safety issues. Since different lithium ion technologies exhibit different safety profiles, the challenge of mitigating safety risks in any application rests with choosing the right lithium ion technology for the application.
Our lithium battery is certified UN38.3, a UN transportation testing for lithium batteries. This is a very tough international testing criteria for any transportation devices, and we are the first manufacture acquired this certificate.
Wheelchairs/Mobility Aids with Lithium Batteries
The batteries must be of a type which meets the requirements of each test in the UN Manual of Tests and Criteria, Part III, subsection 38.3. Where the battery is removed by the user, if the mobility aid is specifically designed to allow it to be, following the manufacturer’s instructions, the battery must not exceed 300 Wh, or for a device that is fitted with two batteries required for its operation, each battery must not exceed 160 Wh. If the battery is not removed, there is no limit to the Wh rating for the installed battery(ies) A passenger may carry a maximum of one spare battery not exceeding 300 Wh or two spares each not exceeding 160 Wh.
