I am fairly easily able to trip this breaker and want to try to understand what I can do to stop this.
Here are some ways I can trip it, keep in mind that I am around 206 without clothing, so maybe closer to 210 clothed, and carry a backpack with laptop, so I guess I could be closer to 220 geared. ( I know the scooter's weight is rated at 220)
1) summer / fall time: The breaker could trip on rainy days when I am going up smaller inclines over a distance. I hear the motor change pitch and without a push the switch will trip
2) currently in winter it's wet all the time, and this issue mentioned above can happen 3-4 times a trip without me constantly giving pushes. (which on bigger wheels and in snowy conditions is extra tough to do)
I think the 1.5 hr drive in the trunk of my car is not working well on the batteries in the morning, they feel like they are almost dead when i ride even after a full charge. Riding home at night the batteries seem fine.
Am I over taxing the motor? is that what the switch trips for? I worry my batteries are dead (I've had the scooter for probably 3 months, riding around 5 days a week for 1.5 mile one way trips (3 miles a day) and I plug the charger in after every 1.5 mile trip.
What options do I have? I am going to be attempting to add another 6v to the battery pack to test the overall voltage issue since I figure I am close weight max (Will probably use a voltmeter to spot check the existing batteries too). Do I need to change the sprocket? I've been looking for a larger sprocket for my 3 bolt setup, but I can't find any that are listed to support the e200.
Will my batteries go bad that fast? I always see 100 charge cycles, which seems really low. I'm charging these batteries 2x a day, not a full discharge charge, but keeping it topped off. Having to pay $50+ every month or so, makes the scooter not so cost effective lol.
