A British youth creates an electric scooter from e-cigarette batteries
British youth creates electric scooter from recycled disposable e-cigarette batteries, highlighting potential e-waste issue.

According to a report by NationalWorld, a young British man has successfully built an electric scooter using batteries obtained from disposable e-cigarettes.


Tobiasz Stanford, a 23-year-old university graduate, recently showcased that disposable e-cigarettes, contrary to manufacturers' claims, cannot be casually discarded. He achieved this feat by successfully charging his electric scooter using 80 lithium-ion batteries.


Stanfordford states that he uses this vehicle every day and finds it to be very reliable. The scooter can reach a top speed of 25 kilometers per hour and can travel up to six miles on a single charge. It is even capable of handling slopes and puddles.


After dismantling several e-cigarettes, it was discovered that disposable e-cigarettes are equipped with rechargeable lithium-ion batteries, which can function nearly as well as new batteries after just one cycle.


He received an old battery for free and installed it onto a second-hand electric scooter.


I spent a month or two putting it together, carefully connecting the battery wires, but now the scooter performs better with disposable e-cigarette batteries than before.


He believes that the current promotion of disposable e-cigarettes as a throwaway item is wasteful, and that the issue of "electronic waste" needs to be taken more seriously.


Stanford advocates for banning disposable e-cigarettes or ceasing to promote them as disposable products.


When these chemical substances decompose, the leakage of lithium occurs, resulting in absurd consequences.
