Airwalk Self-Balancing Chargers
The Airwalk self-balancing scooters usually come boxed with their chargers. The Charger is 36V and can charge the scooters within 3-4 hours. Though it depends on the amount of battery power left in the scooter before plugging it to charge. The charger meets the Australian standards and optimizes the standard alternating current (AC) adaptor set up. On the power brick is a LED indicator that lets you know when charging is complete to avoid over -heating.

Here, I would share some tips to quickly resolve some of the problems.

Faulty battery

Eventually, all batteries go down. When this is the case, the only solution is to replace it. Preferably, get a UL battery. They are more reliable and durable. However, ensure it matches your scooters model.

Loose cables

In this case, you unscrew the board from the bottom and remove the lower part. Check the motherboard and find the loosed or worn cables, try reconnecting if they are loose. If they are worn out, you might need to get a new motherboard.

Wheel Motors

They are tiny devices that are connected from the motherboard into the wheels. To be sure that this is what has the issue, on the side of the battery, you would notice a red blink 5 times and 4 times on the motherboard side.

Here, you will need to buy a new motor. The process is actually easy because they come preassembled. So, all you need do is replace and attach to the bad wheel.
