PRLog - Nov. 13, 2011 - SOUTH PASADENA, Calif. -- The Go-Ped ESR 1000 H EX Hoverboard extended range full suspension electric scooter is the latest product added to UrbanScooters.com's inventory of high end transportation devices. Go-Ped (aka Patmont Motor Werks, PMW) has been performing intensive research on Lithium Phosphate Polymer (LiFePo4) battery systems over the past few years. They have come up with a new battery system that combines low cost with high performance. The new system allows Go-Ped to push the ESR model series to new levels. The ESR1000HEX is, without a doubt, the most advanced electric scooter offered by the company.
Go-Ped ESR-1000H EX Hoverboard
When you apply this top of the line battery system to the Hoverboard with its patented cantilevered suspension system, a scooter enthusiast discovers the new Go-Ped ESR-1000 H-EX full suspension extended range LiFePo4 powered electric Hoverboard. The C.I.D.L.I suspension is what makes the Hoverboard a Hoverboard and now a rider can take it a much greater distance between charges with the new range extension benefit delivered by the advanced batteries.
Before the Lithium Phosphate Polymer's in the ESR-1000 H EX, there were Sealed Lead Acid (SLA) and Lithium Ion (Li-Ion) power systems. SLA batteries are big, heavy and not very efficient. These are liquid filled batteries similar to the ones found in a car or motorcycle. They can only be charged 200 - 300 times before they need to be replaced. Li-Ion was the next advancement. They are very efficient, lightweight and small in size. The problem with this technology is cost. They are very expensive to manufacture. To lower cost without sacrificing performance, Go-Ped decided to explore LiFePo4 tech. They were successful as the new LiFePo4's have almost the same high performance characteristics of Li-Ion systems at a cost of only a few hundred dollars more than low-tech SLA powered models.
"The Go-Ped ESR-1000 H EX is the cream of the crop when it comes to stand-up electric scooters." says Frank Minero, President of UrbanScooters.com. "Go-Ped puts every ounce of experience and knowledge into every one of their top-shelf scooters and it's paid off. This is their best stand-up scooter to date."
The Go-Ped ESR-1000 H EX has all of the features that come standard with the rest of the ESR series, including; a 1000+ watt motor that moves the rider to speeds of up to 20mph, dual speed mode, great hill climbing, "Mad Dog" disc brakes, reliability, easy maintainance, durability and a built-in smart charger.
