Buyer Guide of Optima Hx Dual Battery

What are the criteria you need to check before buying Optima HX Dual Battery electric scooter, and what are the things to keep in mind so you can choose the right scooter?

Check Price

Let's talk about the price of the Hx Dual Battery electric scooter. It is slightly higher than a conventional scooter. Mostly it has been seen that the battery's price has increased slightly at this time. But the government of India is allotting subsidies and tax benefits to electric scooters under the FAME-II scheme. So that its high price does not change the mind of buyers, for checking the subsidies on your Vehicle. You should check the ex-showroom price and check whether the central government has allotted any FAME-II subsidy.

Also, check whether the state government is giving any subsidy in your state, and you should check the road tax exemption. After all, you should check the on-road price in which you should check for what things are being charged for the final price.

Range and Top Speed

You should check the range of the HX Dual Battery electric scooter. It means how many kilometers it can run in a single charge. The range of electric scooters is one of the major aspects to look out for. A good electric scooter should have a good range that suffices your daily commuting needs.

You should also check the speed of the electric scooter, which means how fast the scooter can go per hour. Many electric scooters have good speed while many scooters do have not good speed.

Battery and Power

Battery make a major role in your electric scooter. You should also check the type of battery of the electric two-wheelers. There are 2 types of battery mostly used for an electric scooter. Lead-acid (VRLA) battery and lithium-ion battery, but the modern battery is lithium-ion. This battery provides a good range along with an excellent top speed. It can easily provide a range of 75km with a top speed of 90kmph above that would satisfy your daily needs. You should also check the battery pack warranty that the scooter has for how many years.

Motor Power & Torque

You should check the motor power rating and torque of the electric scooter. All electric scooters have a motor power rating available in units of watts. The motor watts indicate how much power the motor is capable of consuming. The Motor also make a major role in your electric scooter. It decides top speed, acceleration, climbing ability, power consumption, and performance. All electric scooters have one Motor, while high-performance scooters have two.

Torque force rotates your electric scooter's wheel and propels you forward. Also, Check how much torque it generates to get good acceleration. You should also check the motor warranty that the scooter comes with for how many years.

Charging Option

Charging the electric scooter is also one of the crucial parts. Most electric scooters take less time, while some scooters take much time to charge the Vehicle. If you buy an electric two-wheeler, the automaker provides a home charger. But there is one thing that you should check the location where you live if there is any public charging station available. Thinking that you need a public or home charging station is enough for you.

Dust & Water resistance

Lastly, check the IP rating of the Optima electric scooter to know its water resistance. All-electric scooters are not water and dust-resistant, and it is not advisable to ride them in the rain. The IP rating is called the "international protection" (IP) code. The IP rating should be IP65 or IP67, and this type of IP rating is ideal. This type of rating is safe to drive during the rainy season, and you can save your Vehicle from breakdown during riding during the rainy season.

How does Electric Scooter work?

  1. The power source of an electric scooter is the battery. The Motor gives the drive. 
  2. The Controller of an electric vehicle receives an electric pulse from the throttle (Switch/Sensor) and allows the electric current to flow from the battery to the Motor. 
  3. The motor hub rotates at speed based on the Motor's current input.
  4. The electronic controller draws power from the onboard battery to operate the hub-mounted motor during acceleration.
  5. During deceleration or braking, the Motor converts the braking energy into electrical energy, thus charging the battery.

Final Thoughts about Hero Electric Optima HX Dual Battery

Finally, we suggest that if you buy the Bajaj Chetak, then. 

  1. Firstly, check the build quality of the scooter.
  2. Secondly, Take a test drive of the vehicle.
  3. Thirdly and most important, ask the showroom representative about the maintenance, when you need to do it, how to do it, and how much it will cost for servicing after verifying everything.
If you think you are comfortable with it, only then decide to buy it.
