How Does Benling Electric Scooter Work?

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

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.
