The Go-Ped ESR-1000, all things considered, is identical to the earlier "Electric Speed Racers" (ESR's) available from Go-Ped, but the power plant is improved. All other Go-Ped ESR units share the same platform, whether you are interested in the ESR-1000, ESR750 or the ESR-1000EX, they all have the same components, but the battery is what sets them apart. All ESR Hoverboards share the same platform as well. Whether you need suspension or you don't, the Go-Ped ESR1000 is quite an improvement. Go-Ped has found a way to replicate the superior performance of expensive Li-Ion batteries and done so at a much lower cost.
The primary advantage of the new Go-Ped ESR-1000 is in the new LiFePo4 batteries. They are superior to the old SLA's and the more advanced Li-Ion's in many ways. SLA batteries are big, heavy and are only capable of a few hundred charges before you need to replace them. The new Go-Ped ESR-1000 gives the rider an additional two miles range in "Turbo Mode" over the older, low-tech Sealed Lead Acid (SLA) energized unit as well. Lithium Ion batteries are absolutely the best batteries out there today and offer a slight range advantage, however they come at an extremely high cost. LiFePo4's are powerful and efficient, making them the ultimate source of power for this scooter.
According to UrbanScooters.com President, Frank Minero, "When Go-Ped set the standard for motorized scooters over 20 years ago, they probably never thought they would be pushing technology to the limit with their electric scooters. The ESR750 was the 1st gen, followed by the advanced suspension ESR750 Hoverboard electric scooter. They've been tweaking and improving ever since. The latest improvement in battery tech is what's really put them over the top. This is a great scooter."
After adding the Go-Ped ESR-1000 to its line up, Patmont Motor Werks now has three different power sources for their electric scooters; SLA, LiFePo4 and Li-Ion. This along with their constant committment to excellence makes them the most advanced and top-quality makers of electric scooters on the market today.
