E-Bike and E-Scooter safety

E-bike and e-scooter fires are on the rise, mainly due to battery and charger failures. To protect you and your neighbours:

  • only charge your e-bike or e-scooter when you’re awake and alert.

  • follow the manufacturer's instructions and precautions.

  • use only the charger supplied by the manufacturer.

  • don’t charge your e-bike or e-scooter if it has travelled through deep water.

  • replace your battery after five years of use.

Also, please don’t store your e-bike or e-scooter in a communal area. Doing this makes it harder for you and your neighbours to escape to safety if there is a fire.
