Improved, Safer Battery Pack:
Until now, all the Speedway Electric Scooters were fitted with a Lithium Polymer battery from a reputable Chinese manufacturer; however, from our experience with selling several hundred of Mini4s, it has been found that the battery defect rate averages about 8%, on an annualized basis—majority were out-of-box defects. There are some benefits of this technology, like a lower Wh/$$ cost & higher volumetric/weight densities.
In our continuous efforts to provide our Customers with the best possible purchase value, reduced downtime, & offer the greatest product longevity, we are extremely pleased to announce an agreement Speedway to fit a tried & tested LG Li-ion battery across the Speedway product line, including the Mini4, Speedway IV, & now with the introduction of the Speedway III as well.
The primary benefit to this LG Li-ion pack is that it’s predicted to yield a 20% improvement on degradation (based on manufacturer cell cycle data), improved safety, robustness, & can be repurposed at the end of the Scooter’s useful life. This pack is composed of the LG MH1 3.2Ah cell, configured as 13S4P—13 cells in series & 4 parallel—for a total of 52 cells in the battery pack.
