Usually. Practically all the time. However, here is an apparent exception. My electric scooter runs on batteries, and there is an indicator on it with four lights that tell me how much power remains in said batteries. Four lights on, full power. No lights on, no power. There’s the ‘four’ part of the equation.
Each light on is supposed to give me three miles of travel. Aha! The three part. And 3 x 4 = 12 miles I should be able to travel without screaming for help because I’m outta power!
A week ago I noticed the lights going out more quickly than they should, and Cliff took it into the shop for new batteries. Then this past Saturday I scootered over to a nearby pharmacy, a distance of a mile and a half. That’s 3 miles round trip. As I scootered along toward the pharmacy, I watched with horror as one light shut down after less than a mile. I vowed that if the second one went out, I’d turn around and go home, but that didn’t happen until I’d been to the store, and headed back. Then the third one went out before I reached the front of the park. That’s 3 lights out -- a theoretical nine miles. I did make it home safely, but today I will be phoning the scooter shop to see what they have to say.
More on this as developments occur.
