MYTH: Electric vehicles are only for city use!

Would definitely be interested if I receive my Ather by that time. :smiley:

We’ll surely go Maga. Once you have it. #Mahalakshmipuramgang

I am in. I was also thinking of driving to a serene, scenic place with all the green creds the scooter has.

I would love to join, although I live on the other side of Bangalore from everyone else :-).

Have you guys visited Avani? This small town has some amazing ancient temples which are around a thousand years old. If we could find a place to charge at Kolar or Malur, it would be a great trip.
Another nearby place is Kurudumale near Mulbagal.

I do need to borrow a portable charger from someone. I wanted to get one but Ather doesn’t have it in stock right now.

Hey guys, I stay at kalayanagar. I want to go to nandhi hills on my ather, I have seen videos on YouTube of people who went on ather, CAn you guys help me plan the charging stops?

Hi there!!

You can easily go to Nandi Hills if you maintain a constant speed of 60kmph from HRBR Layout.

Once reached, you can charge your Ather at the mechanic shop( before or after the climb as you think is better). I prefer after the climb, give him some money 50₹, do grounding jugad, park the vehicle safely and head out for breakfast.

After a nice breakfast, sit and enjoy the rural view while it is charging.
Charge only till about 80% and move else it will take a very long time.

Note:
Start with 100%.
Keep atleast 30% battery for the climb (you don’t need any charge for coming back… gravity does the job).
Ensure there is no power outage while the vehicle is charging.
Take extension wire along with the travel charger, and don’t forget a copper wire for grounding).
Don’t forget that it is away from Ather’s serviceable area… Any problems and you are in a big trouble.
Try to use as less charge as possible ( start slowly and use regen)

All the best dealing with the traffic in the weekend!!
