Bulb Voltage Information

Bulbs for 36, 48, and 60 Volt electric scooters and bikes are rated for a higher Voltage than the scooter or bike is.

The reason for this is that when electric scooter or bike battery pack is recharged its Voltage is higher than normal, and then its Voltage slowly drops down to normal while the vehicle is being driven.

For example a 48 Volt battery pack will have 55 Volts in it after it has been recharged. So if a 48 Volt bulb was used then it would burn out earlier than normal since it was being run on 55 Volts.
