I am a newbie to electric scooters, and feel fairly helpless to solve this problem on my own, haha. I have an 800w Rhino scooter. I have owned it for one year and it has run fine.
Now there is a problem. On flat ground and downhill it runs perfect. On any type of uphill it immediately switches off. If I unplug and then plug in the battery then it will work again until I encounter another hill. Also, when I plug in the battery it makes a small popping sound.
What is the problem, and what is the solution?
Thanks so much for any advice!
