Lets say they are a set of questionable batteries (and I know nothing of how a segway exhibits or warns of impending shut down) What are the signs to look for.

Seeing as this is 'smart technology' I'd imagine the charge is monitored for heating, voltage, and perhaps current load. Then a calculation is done as to distance remaining. If the batteries are sketchy, will all of that be apparent?

What I am getting at, if I go out on an attempted 10 mile ride, what warning am I going to get (or what to look for) before i get stranded?
Should I just remain within walking pushing/pulling distance?
Thanks..

I realize that anything used that I look at may likely be one that one of our members (either active in the forum or not) may have decided to sell.

Cheers!

I think what he's suggesting is . . . . ride around the block 47 times - That way you're never far from where you started

The InfoKey has a battery gauge - You can watch it as you're riding to see how much power you've used and how much is left. No worry about it shutting down on you. Seg batteries are very robust and don't overheat, either when charging or riding. If the pair on the machine you're evaluating will go 10 miles and still show about halfway on the battery gauge, you'd be OK to buy that one

So, a 2015 segway i2SE that the seller claims to have always had the unit 'plugged in' is that good practice to leave the unit always on charge?

Claims are that still gets 20-24 miles per charge... possible/probable?

When did they start putting the Key Charm up on the handle? This one is showing down under the tilt bar... Is that an SE? (see pic)

It has the skeletonized T bar lower attach but also appears to have a dated area where the balance lights are mounted.

And, as expected, they are asking more than what I paid for my first car.
