How do you drive them for free? I`m a charger, but I can`t know. I was afraid to sign up because the bird-charger app makes you say you have an electrician who does certify your socket. I only have one apartment to load and he said it worked better on a concrete floor without carpets. Now I think I will try after reading your article. Will the deposit of the chargers be deducted from my bank account? Each morning, scooters that have been recharged overnight must be put back on the road via their app, what is called a nest, a predefined corner or a place on the map. High-activity bird flyers often report that they earn well over $100 a night in some cities, although income may vary depending on location and whether you have access to calculate bird scooters. Regardless of that, this creates a rather well-paid, low-resilient secondary job – although competition with other Bird scooter chargers can make it difficult to transform the gig into a full-time career. These days, with my truck, I am on average 20 scooters per night, as they say it is allowed the maximum (Some people claim to be able to load more per night). I had to buy them except for 6 chargers provided for free. Thanks for the info. I found it very useful.
I signed up for Bird a few weeks ago, but I still haven`t received any chargers and my attempts to get returns have not been successful. There are several nests near my house so figure that I could throw several in my truck on the way home, load into the garage at night and fall on the way to work. But still nothing. Here in San Antonio, most Lime scooters are close to downtown, which is not that far away, so I decided to sign up too. I got my notification yesterday to order chargers for Lime. The only thing that stops me is the $60 for 4 chargers. I know he`s going to catch up pretty quickly, but he`s still not a big fan of that. I think Bird is $20, but no fees. You unplug your merits when you start.
I`m going to start juicing for Lime, but I`d really like Bird to come back to me. Again, thanks for the info! Maybe five minutes between now and then I get a confirmation of Vogel`s order shows a 3pk power supply. How many total chargers can you have? I don`t think there`s any limit. I have 13 chargers in total – 4 from Lime, 9 from Bird. But I just grabbed 2 cuz chargers I left them in the bike room in my office and I think some janitors took them. I think I`ve only got 11 chargers left. After paying off their debts, fleet managers keep 80% of revenues on all journeys, while Bird keeps the remaining 20% as a „service fee“ for operating the app – whether the 20% is deducted before or after the extra fee, but for fleet managers is unclear. This would make it much more profitable to be a fleet manager than to be a loader, because scooters do not need to be recharged until they are driven for several hours, and the bounties have fallen to $3 in some cities last year. I`m in Atlanta and I have lime chargers about a week ago after applying more than 2.5 months ago.
I also applied for Bird and I didn`t get any contact after many attempts to contact them on a status update. I finally got a message from Bird saying they have enough chargers right now and they don`t activate me until things change. I don`t know how long it`s going to take. I don`t even know if there`s a waiting list and where I am.
