Can you leave electric scooter on charge overnight?

You’d better not charge your electric scooter overnight.

Although many electric scooters have built-in overcharge protection function, it will not be damaged if plugged in for a few minutes after fully charged, but do not leave it for too long.

I recommend finding out the daily charging mode. It will depend on the charging time of your electric scooter.

For example, if your e scooter needs about 3 hours to charge, please plug it in when you get home from work and unplug it at night. If it takes 8 hours, you can plug it in before going to bed, charge it overnight, and unplug it in the morning.
