Q: What is the difference between the Triad 750 and others that may look similar?

 

The Triad 750 3 wheel e scooter is manufactured to the highest American quality standards compared to all the knockoff brands out there that are attempting to "look" like the Original Triad 750 and the Triad 750 CSX Models. The specifications of these look-a-likes are dishonest, as they are embellished in order for the products to appear better than they really are. They all utilize outdated technologies combined corner cutting assembly tactics and plus, there is no manufacturing standardization or certifications built into those knockoff electric scooters.

Its important to know the copycats are built over the maximum peak power output. For example, some scooters are 170W units (designed for kids under 75 lbs) but these motors are over-amplified 3 times over the natural power they are designed for and marketed to adults in the USA and they call it a 500W. You think its good because they say its a 500W but its not. Its a 170W motor taking 3x more energy from the battery than its designed for to run properly.  In engineering this is a dishonest tactic known as advancing the stall current and its done to cut corners on costs on electric motors. The only thing is the end user pays for it in the end because this causes heat buildup you burn up the battery and fry wiring and and destroy the efficiency of all electrical components very rapidly. Other copycat 3 wheel electric scooters use 270W motors and amplify them 3X for the same result. 270 x 3 = 810 so they call it an 800W but its truly not. A 270W motor is designed for persons under 130 lbs. So when a 220 lb guy gets on these knockoff models, you can tell because they are weak on inclines, and the battery and motor and electrical components work really hard until the whole scooter burns up in just a few short months. Another copycat challenger to the Original Triad 750 uses a 270W motor, its amplified 2x and they claim its a 750W motor but it only goes up to 18mph which makes no sense. A real 750W motor like the Triad 750 goes 25 mph. You are right to feel skeptical because that particular challenger scooter has completely inaccurate specifications including battery life and vehicle weight.

Q: What is the difference between a Triad Battery and those lead acid batteries "knockoff" brands claiming are equal in comparison?

Weight

Triad Electric Vehicle batteries are one-tenth the weight of our competitors’ lead acid batteries. The Triad Electric Vehicles battery is by far the safest, longest lasting and the most advanced batteries available for any 3 wheel personal electric vehicle e scooter, trike. There is only one 6 lb. battery in the Original Triad 750; and there is up to 60 lbs. of lead acid batteries in most of the knockoff brands available. SLA (sealed lead acid) batteries are extremely heavy. Lead is the heaviest non-radioactive metal and lead acid batteries simply put are an inferior choice when simply factoring in the weight components.

Ease of Use

Only Triad Electric Vehicles batteries are easily removable and they can be charged outside the vehicle. Most others will use lead acid batteries that are hard wired and cannot be removed.

Energy Density

Triad Electric Vehicle batteries have the highest energy density per kilogram available. By comparison, lead acid batteries have the lowest energy density per kilogram. Lead acid batteries only have about 50% usable energy. Triad batteries have 80-100% usable energy. It takes 8 – 16 full hours to recharge lead acid batteries compared to the Triad Electric Vehicles battery; which recharges in less than 4 hours. For example, if you discharge 25% of the battery it only takes 1 hour to charge.

Efficiency

Triad Electric Vehicle batteries are nearly 100% efficient in both charge and discharge. The knockoff competitors’ lead acid (SLA) batteries’ complete inefficiency leads to a loss of amps even while charging. Discharging lead acid batteries occurs rapidly, and lead acid batteries drop voltage during use, further reducing the batteries’ capacity to hold energy during the next charge. Lead acid batteries are extremely inefficient compared to Triad Electric Vehicle batteries.

Discharge

Triad Electric Vehicle batteries are discharged at 90% versus lead acid batteries which are not recommended beyond more than 50% depth of discharge. On an average full charge stop and go 0-12 mph daily driving, a 300 lb rider can go up to 16 miles without losing power or voltage over the entire lifetime of the Triad battery. The knockoff brands always make exaggerated claims that their batteries can make distance they simply cannot and that you can travel on a single charge with lead acid batteries. In reality, even with brand new lead acid batteries, you can only travel less than half the distance that they claim. Lead acid batteries do not have the capacity to hold and discharge enough energy to support the distance claims made by the no-name brands.

Cycle Life

Rechargeable Triad Electric Vehicle batteries can be charged 800-1200 times throughout their lifetime, compared to just 150-200 cycles in lead acid batteries. Cycle life is greatly affected by much higher levels of discharge in lead acid, versus only slightly being affected in Triad Electric Vehicle batteries. The more you use and charge and discharge lead acid batteries, the less voltage is available in them and the less distance you can travel with a knockoff brand electric scooter. In daily use, lead acid batteries will only provide enough energy for a few months before noticing the signs that replacements will soon be required. The Triad Electric Vehicles battery will perform for 16,000-24,000 miles overall on average throughout its lifetime when properly maintained. You can enjoy peace of mind with many years of reliable use with the Triad batteries.

Voltage

Triad Electric Vehicle batteries maintain their voltage output throughout the entire discharge cycle. This allows for greater and longer-lasting efficiency of all the electrical components. Lead acid batteries’ voltage drops consistently throughout each discharge cycle. This rapid drop in voltage with lead acid batteries will eventually cause all of the electrical components to fail in the knockoff brand electric scooters. Some components will fail more quickly. These very common failures of the knockoff brands include burning up the batteries, destruction of the motor controller, throttle failure, and motor burnout. Total unit failure is common in these knockoff brands within a relatively short amount of time because the inherent voltage discharge problem of lead acid batteries is compounded with the knockoff brands multiplying the amount of energy from the battery to the motor in the controller (sometimes 300% more) falsifying the belief that their scooter is more powerful than it really is. Once you add the weight of the rider, or load, it is very common to experience the rapid deterioration of lead acid batteries. Triad batteries can operate normally under 10 times the load capacity of lead acid batteries.

Cost

The true cost of ownership of Triad Electric Vehicle batteries is far less than any knockoff brand’s lead acid battery when considering life span and performance. For every 1 Triad battery you will need to replace the knockoff brand’s lead acid batteries 24 times. That is a total of having to purchase up to 100 of their batteries for the one Triad battery included in your vehicle. At an average of $200 per battery change for the knockoff brand, you would spend well over 500% more in the long run compared to the original Triad battery. You will also have to plan on the additional cost of replacing many of the knockoff brand’s components many times over because the deterioration of lead acid battery voltage is going to cause the components to fail frequently.

Environmental Impact

Triad Electric Vehicle batteries are a much cleaner technology and are safer for the environment compared to gasoline powered mopeds and other internal combustion engine (ICE) vehicles. Triad Electric Vehicle batteries deliver higher-quality performance in a safer, lighter weight, longer-lasting package.

 

Q: Can I order just one Triad electric scooter?

A. Yes. We can build a sample unit for you, no problem! Your electric scooter is designed to your specifications with any customizable options available to that model. With global shipping available it will be shipped immediately after production is completed for arrival to your door in about 12 business days time.

 
Q: Is it more expensive to have a color?

A: No. You may choose from 12 custom colors for your adult scooter at no additional charge. Black, White, Red, Orange, Yellow, Green Apple, Metallic Blue, Sky Blue, Pink, Purple, Silver or Graphite on select models. Mix and match your order with any number of these different colors.

 

Q: How does Power equal Speed?

A: Maybe you don't want to go fast all the time, but Triad builds the fastest electric scooter because we don't know where you are going, we just know you gotta get there! You can select how to limit your speed on the fly. Outside the lane of traffic, going faster ensures motorists have more time to maneuver around you for safer operations. Even if you don't want to go fast, you will likely need the power and torque to travel with your Triad electric scooter over steep inclines or even use your Triad as an off road electric scooter. A true 750W motor will go 25 mph. The important thing to know is that you may not necessarily need that power for speed, but the power your Triad adult scooter provides to go that fast is also used at lower speeds to go over high resistance areas like thick grass, gravel, dirt bike paths and steep inclines more efficiently. This also extends your battery because it doesn't have to work as hard.


Q: Can I drive my Triad in the rain?

A: Of course! All the electrical components are sealed or are made to prevent moisture from entering your vehicle. However, it is an electrical device so we do ask that you refrain from repeatedly operating Triad 3 wheel scooter in heavy rain or through deep puddles. It is not intended to be driven in severe weather conditions. We also recommend that once you have completed your outdoor excursion that you dry off your Triad to remove any chemical residue as a result from exposure to weather elements. 


Q: What are the FCL container maximum carton quantities?

A 20′ Full Container Load (FCL) equals 100 cartons.

A 40′ container equals 300 cartons.

 

Q: Can I order less than a Full Container?

A. Yes. We also provide LCL (less than container load) shipments. Typical shipment sizes for LCL are 20 unit or 50 unit shipments for wholesale orders and Authorized Retailer shipments.


 

Q: How long will it take me to get my e scooters?

A: Triad single unit sample orders are built and delivered to final destinations in about 12 business days from the date the order is placed. Single unit orders equal up to 4 pcs in quantity at any time. Depending on the size of your order, manufacturing production may take 10-20 business days.
