    FIREFLY V3HB Motor & Battery Combination

    FIREFLY V3HB has been upgraded from the original Lead Acid battery to have a Lithium Iron Phosphate Battery giving great performance.
    NOTE; The range is reduced with the regenerative braking motor and the LiFePO4 battery.

    FIREFLY V3HB has a 60V AC 1.5 kW Brushless Motor, powerful and efficient.

    FIREFLY V3HB has an upgrade 64V 80Ah Lithium Iron Phosphate battery that should be charged after every use.
    It must not be driven more than 20 km as this will be around 20% SOC (remaining state of charge) and below this the battery life will be significantly shortened.
    ZERO the odometer at each charge and do not drive beyond the 20 km mark.
    For best life – charge after each use.

    This battery can also withstand extremes in temperature without damage.

    ALWAYS FULLY CHARGE YOUR FIREFLY BATTERY BEFORE USING FROM NEW. RESET ODOMETER TO ZERO.

    In practice depending on driving style, terrain, load, speed etc, you will get around 20 km distance maximum usable distance. With the heater or air conditioner going, you will get less distance. Also, remember Lithium batteries have a VERY short end phase in their power supply, so run out very quickly. See the graphs in the “More Information” section. It is best to recharge the Firefly HB after each trip !

    DO NOT RELY ON THE BATTERY GUAGE, USE THE ODOMETER.
    The battery gauge was designed for different battery types.

    When in storage, the Lithium FePO4 battery should be charged to full, and make sure the Daisy’s Power / Overload switch is OFF, so there is no chance of accidentally drawing current from the stored battery.
    Charge the battery fully every month to make sure it remains full.

    If you accidentally discharge the battery to zero charge, connect the charger and it will recharge the battery.

    This is the LiFePO4 batteries performance vs distance travelled table, as calculated ….

    FAQ's

    Does my FIREFLY V3HB Mobility Scooter need to be registered?
    In Australia you do not register your Mobility Scooter, except for Queensland, and it is registered for ownership only.

    Do I need a driver’s license to drive my FIREFLY V3HB Mobility Scooter?
    You do not need a driver’s license to drive your Mobility Scooter.

    Can I drive my FIREFLY V3HB Mobility Scooter on the road?
    You may drive your FIREFLY V3HB Mobility Scooter on a public road if for any reason the footpath is not suitable or not available. You must obey all the rules of a pedestrian or cyclist. You and passengers must use the seat belts if on a road.

    Can I carry a passenger in my FIREFLY V3HB Mobility Scooter?
    Your FIREFLY V3HB Mobility Scooter is able to accommodate a passenger or two smaller passengers. You and passengers must use the seat belts if on a road. It is recommended to obtain approval from your local authority.

    I need to move my FIREFLY V3HB Mobility Scooter by pushing it?
    Your FIREFLY V3HB Mobility Scooter has an Electric Brake, which engages when it comes to a full stop.
    This brake can be disengaged by lifting the lever on the RHS of the motor under the rear.
    Remember to engage the electric brake before using by moving the lever downward.

    What materials is the FIREFLY V3HB Mobility Scooter made from?
    The FIREFLY V3HB Mobility Scooter panels are made from ABS, an impact-resistance engineering thermoplastic. The windscreen and windows are made from Tempered Safety Glass, so they will not shatter into shards that cut you if broken. The frame construction is unitary, very strong one-piece steel. All to vehicle industry standards.

    How often should I charge my FIREFLY V3HB Mobility Scooter?
    It is best to charge the battery after each use.

    When in storage, or not intending to use for more than a week, switch off the Circuit Breaker (Kill Switch / Overload Switch) and charge the battery to full each month.

    How can I check I am charging my FIREFLY V3LHB Mobility Scooter at the right time?
    The recommended way of checking the power used and replaced by the charger is to purchase a Power Meter and check your power usage. The 80Ah battery has 5.1kWhr (5120 Whr) of power in it when full, and at 20% SOC it will require 4.1 kWhr to fill to 100% SOC. The results will give you an idea of what power you are using and what kms you can travel without going below the 20% SOC.

    What is the average life of a FIREFLY V3HB Mobility Scooter battery?
    The FIREFLY V3HB Lithium Iron Phosphate batteries are able to be charged many thousands of small discharges and fewer deep discharges. See more in Motor and Battery combination.

    Why is a Lithium battery so much better than a Lead-Acid battery?
    Firstly, the voltage platform is higher for a Lithium battery, and thus there is more power produced by the motor, and more consistently.
    Secondly, the power available (power density) is much greater, making the battery much lighter, and thirdly the power is able to be delivered much faster.
    Lastly, the ideal temperature for all batteries is 25 C. Temperature limits are, for Lead Acid 0-+35 C, for the FIREFLY V3HB Lithium FePO4 battery it is -20-+50 C. Temperatures over 35 C damage lead acid batteries.

    Is the FIREFLY V3HB Mobility Scooter battery safe ?
    Everyone by now has heard of Lithium battery fires occurring. All of the fires can be accounted for due to many individual factors that are not the norm in the use of any original lithium battery with the correct charger.
    The FIREFLY V3HB‘s Li Iron Phosphate battery is the safest of any Lithium Battery.

    What is the running cost of a FIREFLY V3HB Mobility Scooter?
    The electric power cost for the FIREFLY V3HB is approximately 5 cents/km.
    As in all electric mobility devices, it is the cost of the battery that is the expensive part.
    The total running cost of a FIREFLY V3HB is about 23 cent/km plus any servicing.

    Can I use other batteries in my FIREFLY V3HB?
    You could use another type of battery in your FIREFLY V3HB, but the Lithium Iron Phosphate supplied or a Ternary battery are the best for the job, as explained in the answers above.
    We recommend to only install the correct battery available from your dealer or directly from Mobility Scooters for Hire Sale Service.

    I need to drive more than 20km on occasions, but like my Firefly V3HB. What can I do?
    You may change your LiFePO4 battery for a LiMnNiCo battery and your distance travelled will increase to 30-35km usable.

    What is the service schedule for FIREFLY V3HB?
    Your FIREFLY V3HB requires a service every year or 1000km.
    Change the differential oil with SAE 80W-90 gear oil.
    Use 3in1 oil on all joints and moving parts.
    Wash with running water and a very soft cloth or brush, and wipe as required with a damp soft cloth. Do not use detergents or other cleaners, they are not required. Never wipe in a dry condition, as the dust and sand will scratch surfaces. A UV Protectorant polish is highly recommended to use on a monthly basis after washing as it will help protect the paint covering from Australia’s harsh sun’s UV damage.

    What is the correct way to connect the power to the charger to charge you LEMS?
    Operation Instructions :
    Connect outlet plug of the charger to your FIREFLY V3HB.
    Connect the inlet plug of the charger to AC power socket, and when or if connected, turn the power switch on.
    When the indicator light is RED it is charging (sometimes this maybe flashing at around one second intervals). When GREEN it is fully charged.
    Charging time is proportional to the power required to fully charge the battery, and that is what was used since the last charging.
    To disconnect the charger, firstly turn off or remove the charger input plug from the AC power supply.
    Remove the charger outlet plug from the FIREFLY V3HB.

    Notes :
    Do not use outside in the sun, rain or damp
    Do not use in dusty conditions
    Do not use inside your FIREFLY V3HB
    Do not place on or near inflammable materials
    Do not drop
    Ensure the correct charger is used for correct battery type and capacity.
    Some chargers have different colour light sequences, please check and note when first using.
