(Las Vegas, NV)
Hi, my scooter is a Chinese VIP Future Champion 49cc. I rode it for several miles (around 30) on a very hot day (105 F); when I got to my destination. I noticed that if I released the throttle, the engine could not run by itself. So finally it went off and I haven't been able to make it start since then.

A battery tender like the Battery Tender Jr. can make all the difference in whether your scooter will start right up each spring, after being stored for months.
Just about every scooter owner needs to have a battery tender, sometimes called a trickle charger. Unless you are lucky enough to live in a climate where you can ride all year long, chances are your scooter will be put on ice, figuratively-speaking, for at least a couple months every winter.
One of the key steps in winterizing a scooter is to protect your battery from draining during its "rest" period. This can – and will – happen if you leave your battery sitting untended in your cold scooter over the winter, even if it's in a garage or shed.
