Most Orlando Scooter Renters are surprised when their scooter battery life drops dramatically while touring Disney Worlds’ Animal Kingdom. Weight on a mobility scooter is what determines battery life and when adding hills to that it is exponential. Even for a slight incline or hill, for every degree of increased angle, the more power is used. Think about it this way…is it harder to carry a 50 pound child on a flat surface or when you are climbing a hill? The hill of course because you are now carrying the child’s weight plus you need extra exertion to get yourself up the hill too. Same with a scooter. The scooter not only had to move the riders weight but also its own weight.
If you are going to Animal Kingdom and you are near the weight limit for your scooter rental, we recommend you take your charger, just in case. At Scooter Vacations we specifically upgrade batteries and chargers to accommodate the time and distance factors for a theme park day.
