Here at LOCO Scooters, we want to help all electric scooter owners troubleshoot and resolve any issues they have with their electric scooters. Whether you are facing common problems with your e-scooter or need urgent electric scooter repairs in Dublin, we have you covered. Read on to discover essential information about electric scooter repairs to ensure your e-scooter experience is as positive and hassle-free as possible.
What are common problems with electric scooters?
The most common issues that we see are customers that have bought cheap electric scooters from unknown online sources which are of low quality and low spec. They typically have low quality batteries which will fail in a short period of time.
We always recommend that you do that little bit of extra research and spend that little bit more to ensure your electric scooter is going to perform as you need, and more importantly, as you would expect.
However, any electric scooter may encounter various issues over time due to wear and tear or user error. Here are some common electric scooter problems and their solutions:
Battery Related Issues
Insufficient charge: Is your electric scooter battery failing to hold a charge? You may need a replacement electric scooter battery in this case.
Charging problems: Check the charger, connectors, and power source. Faulty components or improper connections can disrupt the charging process.
Check out our range of electric scooter chargers. These are available to purchase at our electric scooter repair shop in Dublin and online:
LOCO Scooters also stock a huge range of spare parts which are available to purchase online and at our electric scooter shop in Blanchardstown.
- Sudden power loss: A faulty battery, loose connections or a damaged power controller can interfere with your electric scooter when its time to charge.
Tyre & Wheel Issues
Punctures: We recommend regularly checking your electric scooter's tyres for punctures and to maintain the correct tyre pressure. Repair or replace the tyre as necessary.

- Misaligned wheels: Steering and stability can be affected by a misalignment. LOCO Scooters are available to provide expert electric repairs in Dublin.
Electrical System Repairs
Non-functional Lights or Indicators: Check the connections, fuses and bulbs. Replace any faulty components to ensure proper visibility and safety.
- Malfunctioning brakes: Inspect the brake system, including cables, brake pads and sensors. Adjust or replace the parts if necessary.
What is the average lifespan of an electric scooter battery?
This will differ on a case-by-case basis as it depends on how frequently you use your electric scooter, how frequently you charge it and how best you manage your electric scooter battery. But what we would say is somewhere between three and five years. Electric scooter battery manufacturers say somewhere between 300-500 full charge cycles, so you should be very surprised if you buy a high-quality electric scooter and don't get three to five years out of the battery.
