A Battery Problem?
Hi, I’m DJ. New here. Have an issue going on looking for some input.
I have a Fiebor Q06 5,600W, 60V, 36Ah, turbo and dual drive scooter. I purchased this because my old 800W Evercross H5 wouldn’t pull even a slope much less a hill. I live on the mountain and it’s full of hills. My scooter is dying on me and shutting down. Sometimes it will let me ride it in gear one, single drive without turbo engaged. The moment I go from gear 1 to 2 or 3, or turn on Turbo or dual drive the scooter dies and shuts down on me immediately. My voltage readout before this happens is right at 62V. Does this sound like a battery issue to you? I’m not sure what to think. After it dies on me when I plug it into the chargers the dashboard comes right back on. The last time this happened I took the chargers off, laid it on it’s side, taped the throttle all the way down and let it run with both turbo and dual drive engaged. It ran indefinitely until I turned it off after about 15 minutes. Thinking it must have been a one time incident I took it out for another ride, started out in gear 1 but once again the moment I put it in gear 2 or hit either the turbo button or dual drive it died on me immediately. Unless my weight is causing the scooter to require more battery power I don’t understand why it will run on it’s side indoors and not turn off. Can batteries behave like this? Does this sound like a battery problem or perhaps some mechanical component malfunctioning? Any input would be appreciated.
does anyone use this forum?? doesn't look like it
@cbeta this forum is fairly new and primarily reaches consumer-type buyers of an electric scooter or light motorcycle. As it appears, your question requires advise from electric motorcycle specialists.
The German forum https://www.elektroroller-forum.de has many enthusiast electric scooter specialists who may be able to help you, however, the language is German.
There may be other forums with specialists. I found the following:

Another tip for advise is Battery University: https://batteryuniversity.com/
@admin Thanks for sharing the links . I got e-bike from here. I just love it . I been to bike shops and plenty of websites researching bikes. What I found is that the GS6 is by far more bang for your buck.
My first trip was 18 miles with a loss of 2 bars and on my way home with the bike's ability to recharge the battery while coasting it went up an additional bar.
