Living Electric - What is a Watt?

posted Oct 1, 2015, 6:44 PM by Michael Braun   [ updated Oct 1, 2015, 6:48 PM ]

What is a Watt? 

750 watts is roughly 1 horsepower.

An average "healthy human" can produce a steady 0.1 horsepower for a full eight hour period, while a "first class athlete" can produce 0.4 horsepower for a similar period.  No more power is available without some rest and recovery. Thus at 0.4 hp the "healthy human" becomes exhausted within 10 minutes! 

The Yacht Scooter (Spec: Yacht.185.20.Flat.30.2) has a 48 Volt battery with a short term max 20ah controller.  This produces 48 X 20 = 960 Watts of power for short burst and 750 watts for continuous use over a duration of 30 miles at 20 mph.  Rest for a person 10-12 hours.  Rest for the Yacht Scooter is 2-3 hours.

Spec: Yacht.185.20.Flat.30.2
Yacht: Standard 
185 lb: Typical use weight limit 
20: Max speed in MPH 
Flat: Flat terrain  
30: Range in miles on flat terrain
2: 2 Hour charger 
Battery controller motor combination to achieve the above
48Volt X 15ah Lithium (LifePo4)
750 Watt motor
Model: X1 15 Amp Controller

Broward County Green Initiatives and Electric Scooters

posted Jul 7, 2015, 1:04 PM by Michael Braun

Next stop on this journey is to get electric scooters accepted down here in South Florida.  

I am reaching out to learn more about Broward's green initiatives and see who the appropriate persons would be to introduce my product.   

I understand that the laws require pedals for an electric scooter to be considered under the bicycle laws but I am looking to change the way we think about these type of light electric vehicles.  Starting in Lighthouse Point Florida about 4 years ago myself and a bunch of fathers have been driving our kids to school and around town on electric scooters.  The community as well as the local police have accepted us using them to the point to where they are part of the local parades and events.  I would greatly appreciate the opportunity to share my story and personally introduce my product so I can work towards gaining acceptance in the Broward County area and help move us forward in living a greener lifestyle.

Thanks for your time!!

Wheelchairs, Mobility Aids, and Other Power-Driven Mobility Devices -Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA)

Assessment Factors

Reference: http://www.ada.gov/opdmd.htm

In deciding whether a particular type of OPDMD can be accommodated in a particular facility, the following factors must be considered:

  • the type, size, weight, dimensions, and speed of the device;
  • the facility's volume of pedestrian traffic (which may vary at different times of the day, week, month, or year);
  • the facility's design and operational characteristics (e.g., whether its business is conducted indoors or outdoors, its square footage, the density and placement of furniture and other stationary devices, and the availability of storage for the OPDMD if needed and requested by the user);
  • whether legitimate safety requirements (such as limiting speed to the pace of pedestrian traffic or prohibiting use on escalators) can be established to permit the safe operation of the OPDMD in the specific facility; and
  • whether the use of the OPDMD creates a substantial risk of serious harm to the immediate environment or natural or cultural resources, or poses a conflict with Federal land management laws and regulations.

It is important to understand that these assessment factors relate to an entire class of device type, not to how a person with a disability might operate the device. (See next topic for operational issues.) All types of devices powered by fuel or combustion engines, for example, may be excluded from indoor settings for health or environmental reasons, but may be deemed acceptable in some outdoor settings. Also, for safety reasons, larger electric devices such as golf cars may be excluded from narrow or crowded settings where there is no valid reason to exclude smaller electric devices like Segways®.

Based on these assessment factors, the Department of Justice expects that devices such as Segways® can be accommodated in most circumstances. The Department also expects that, in most circumstances, people with disabilities using ATVs and other combustion engine-driven devices may be prohibited indoors and in outdoor areas with heavy pedestrian traffic.

A record number of Electric Scooters at Circle F Camp Site this year!

posted Nov 7, 2014, 3:36 PM by Michael Braun   [ updated Nov 25, 2014, 1:26 PM ]



The girls and I had a great time with the Creek Tribe Indian Princess group this weekend.  The destination was Circle F Dude Ranch http://circlefduderanchcamp.com/.  Three years ago Tony, Roy and I introduced electric scooters to the Creek tribe and ever since they have become a highlight of our trips and are always mentioned in our meetings when the girls talk about the things they have done with their dads.  The number of electric scooters is multiplying every year and it's great to see the connection the fathers make with their daughters as we go on adventures around the site. 




This site has dirt roads around it and gets sandy in places so you have to be careful and learn how to ride around or through some of the soft spots. Everyone learns quickly and takes it slow when they have to.  Some of the new riders plow through the sand and have to jump from the scooters and walk or drag them through these spots.  The limited speed of the electric scooters it keeps everything safe. You don't have to go fast to have fun scooting! 






The Creek Tribe's camp site is filled with electric scooters.  Most of which are being charged.  Slowly but surely most of the guys are starting to make the switch to Lithium batteries so they can cruise around rather than spend most or the time being plugged in.  The Ohio State LHP Glyder that my daughter used at the campout has the original lithium iron phosphate batteries that I purchased when I started designing scooters 3 years ago.  It's has tons of miles on it and it still performs like new, charges quickly and last a long time time.  







Had to share this alligator seat. A new scooter dad customized it.  It's made from real alligator hide and the seat is made from the snout of the gator. 















My daughter Quinn and her friend Karina on our our sunset cruise.  We went out to check out the camp site, feed the horses and go visit some friends.  












Mark Viau "The pool guy" with his daughter Mia. 

























Roy Manke is our our money man!  These guys were on their way to the horses. So we joined in.  













Make sure you hold your hand flat when feeding the horses!

LHP Electric Glyders - Antique Road Show: Take #1

posted Sep 9, 2014, 7:28 PM by Michael Braun

Someday...someone will be watching the Antique Road Show and some guy in a mustache is going to say.... "WOW this is a vintage LHP Electric Glyder... a one of a kind electric scooter built back in 2014 out of a garage. At that time they were pretty much illegal to use anywhere.  This guy (now super famous) named Michael Braun would drive his daughters to and from school on one these everyday go right past the police station and they never busted him so he decided to name his company LHP Custom Electric Scooters Inc.  This LHP Nauti Glyder sold for around $2,735.00 back in 2014. Soon after they quickly became the worlds most popular mode of transportation, saved millions of lives and the planet earth.  They were unique because of the low wide base and it's cool style resonated with the ladies making them fashionable form of travel especially in the major cities.  This was the first Lithium based electric scooter built in the USA and was instrumental in making Florida the Silicone Valley of electric vehicles.  Maam you really have a treasure piece!  I am not sure you want to part with that as it's value continues to skyrocket daily."
