is anybody aware of some sort of (scientific or unscientific) tests concerning the efficiency of e-scooter controllers?
I recall having gotten out of my tiny 33v/6.5ah (214wh) battery a solid 30km/19m cruising at 25km/h … with a 2016 E-twow Booster and even their website mentions 7wh per km - so pretty much in line with what I got. A pitty that I don’t see this measure more often, as it seems very relevant!
Nowadays I see many higher powered scoots with batteries twice or 3 times that wh-batteries getting similar range … (and yes I am aware that esp. speed scales non linear (squared I think))
So, given that the battery is by far the most expensive part of a PEV, it would be outright dumb if you manage to not squeeze out any last wh to convert it into kinetic energy (as opposed to heat) - wouldn’t it?
I also hear that the Minimotors controller seem to be more efficient than the generic-chinese ones that are being used in kaabo/zero/whatever rebadge … but that might be heresay on youtube, etc…
Any first hand experience e.g. cruising with a similar weighted friend on 2 different scooters side-by-side for quite some time thus determining consumption under identical conditions?
any thoughts on that?
