Most transportable scooters come apart into five pieces:
- Unclip the basket if desired
- Lift the seat off
- Lift the battery pack off
- Lift the latch just behind the seat post. The front and back halves of the scooter separate.
Some larger scooter models may break apart this same way but the pieces are much larger and heavier. Also, the batteries used in larger scooters are not enclosed in plastic housings. Rather, they're usually individual batteries with wires that plug into the scooter.
