At LOCO Scooters, we understand the unique climate in Ireland and offer a comprehensive waterproofing service for all electric scooters purchased from our store. In this blog post, we'll explain why waterproofing your electric scooter is essential in Ireland and how LOCO Scooters can help keep your scooter protected from harsh conditions.
Ireland's Rainy ClimateWe Irish are all too familiar with rain. In 2022 alone, the east coast experienced 150 days of rain while the west coast had to put up with 225 days of showers. The electrical components of electric scooters can be vulnerable to water damage, especially if they are not designed to withstand extended exposure to moisture and rain.
Most Electric Scooters Are Not Designed for Wet Conditions
Many electric scooter manufacturers design their products for a global market where the weather is predominantly warm and dry throughout the year. Not exactly suited to the rainy conditions of Ireland. All of which means electric scooter users may have to deal with malfunctioning scooters because of electrical components being exposed to water ingress.
Where Can I Get A Waterproof Electric Scooter?
Customers can shop online or visit us at our showroom in Blanchardstown, Co. Dublin to check out a wide range of electric scooters. Our very own LOCO Motion Pro is entirely waterproof - straight out of the box. Built specifically with the weather and streets of Ireland in mind, all internal components are rated IPX7 against water ingress to provide riders with complete peace of mind.
But what if you don't own a LOCO Motion Pro? Can I waterproof my electric scooter? You sure can. Our electric scooter experts in Dublin will dismantle your e-scooter and apply a clear, weatherproof silicone seal to all electrical components, ensuring maximum protection against water damage. Whether you have a Kugoo, Segway, VSETT or a Xiaomi electric scooter, our team can help you ensure your e-scooter is protected against the elements.

- Extend the lifespan of your scooter by preventing water damage to electronic components
