A comparative analysis of the OCU highlights four scooters for their good quality / price ratio: Cecotec Bongo A Connected, Cecotec Bongo Serie A, Olsson Rhino and Xiaomi 365

The association recommends choosing models with disc brakes, inflatable wheels and an anti-theft system. In addition to assessing the weight and autonomy of the battery depending on the use that is going to be given

Although you do not need a license to drive them, the OCU reminds that you can only drive on the road and no more than 25 km / h; and at night, with light and wearing reflective clothing.

A recent comparative analysis of electric scooters conducted by the Organization of Consumers and Users (OCU) reveals that good models can be found for a sale price of between 299 and 390 euros. The information, published in the OCU Compra Maestra magazine, highlights four devices, all of them with standard disc brakes, taillights, inflatable wheels and an anti-theft system.

Cecotec Bongo A Connected (349 euros). Autonomy: 13 km. Weight: 13 kg.

Pros: Excellent brakes and equipment (brake light and cruise control), good battery (removable), clarity of the information on the screen, includes app. Against: Poor accessibility to the inflation valve.

Cecotec Bongo Serie A (299 euros). Autonomy: 13 km. Weight: 13.3 kg.

Pros: Excellent brakes and equipment (brake light and cruise control), good battery (removable). Against: It does not have an app to check its location or battery charge from the mobile.

Olsson Rhino (390 euros). Autonomy: 20 km. Weight: 15.7 kg.

In favor: Its driving, good brakes, clarity of the information on the screen, excellent equipment (cruise control, regenerative brake), easy to fold, includes app. Cons: The battery is not removable; it’s heavy.

Xiami 365 (350 euros). Autonomy: 20 km. Weight: 12.8 kg.

In favor: Its driving, excellent brakes, good equipment and very good weight / range ratio, includes app. Against: The battery is not removable and its charging time is long.

In any case, the OCU recommends prioritizing those models that include certain basic characteristics: rear disc brake, as it is the most effective; Inflatable wheels and as large as possible, as this will better cushion the holes in the road; and some kind of anti-theft system, either on the wheel (electronic) or on the scooter’s app. Yes, the app is another piece of equipment to consider. The same as the weight and the real autonomy of the battery depending on the use that is going to give it.

Finally, the Organization recalls that, although you do not need a license to drive an electric scooter, it is mandatory to drive on the road no longer than 25 km / h; at night, with light and wearing reflective clothing. In addition, you cannot carry a passenger or use your mobile or headphones while driving. And the police can demand a breathalyzer or drug test. The penalties for breaching the regulations can reach 1,000 euros (parents must be liable for the actions of minors in charge).

Apple leaps into the electric car sector by partnering with ChargePoint

The American company Apple announced on Tuesday that it will partner with ChargePoint, an electric vehicle infrastructure company.

Apple has decided to innovate in the automobile world, specifically, together with the company’s electric car charging network ChargePoint. The objective is integrate cargo information from electric cars to Apple’s CarPlay system.

CarPlay is a new app of those of Cupertino so that their devices are incorporated and can work in the cars, in this way, music is integrated into the dashboard and even; you can boot from iPhone with digital keys.

In this sense, the union between the two companies will allow electric cars to be driven having access to free hands about any information, be it location or state of the charging stations.

The application will allow you to drive to the nearest stations, determining the speed of the loader or its price. In addition, it shows you information about the availability or the type of plug of the charging stations.

Galicia will continue this Thursday under the influence of low pressures and winds from the south, so the skies will be partially covered, with local thunderstorms that will be more widespread in the afternoon.

The skies will be cloudy in the west and south at dawn, with scattered showers in the estuaries and in Ourense occasionally accompanied by a storm, with cloudiness and rainfall spreading to the rest of the region during the morning.

The minimum temperatures, Meteogalicia predicts, will fall slightly, while the maximum will not experience significant changes.

The wind will blow moderately from the southern component, with strong intervals in the morning on the Atlantic coast.

Minimum and maximum temperatures expected

A Coruña 14º 18º

Ferrol 13º 17º

Lugo 6º 17º

Ourense 8º 19º

Electrical storms | Leonnews

Electrical storms have been the subject of research since Benjamin Franklin, two centuries ago, intuited that lightning was an electrical discharge. However, despite the theoretical and experimental instrumentation advances, there are still aspects for which there is no definitive explanation. The lines that follow are within what is today considered the most plausible explanation.

Thunderstorms occur when there are vertically growing clouds. These clouds are mainly formed by the rise of heated air on the mainly liquid surface of the Earth. The cloud will continue to grow in height as long as it is fed warm air. If this air is humid, when it reaches high areas, where the temperature is low, the water vapor condenses into drops. Higher up, the water droplets turn into ice. Simultaneously, cold air enters its interior through the upper area of ​​the cloud, which weighs more than the hot air, descends towards Earth. Therefore, we have a double circulation, that of hot air upwards and that of cold air downwards. In addition, the drops of water and pieces of ice due to the two air currents, have a turbulent movement within the cloud, until, when they reach enough weight, they fall on the ground in the form of rain or hail. This complex cloud is called a cumulonimbus and is several kilometers high. During this process of cloud formation, static electric charges are produced and separated within it. The positive ones are located in the upper part and the negative ones in the lower part. In parallel, the surface of the Earth, by a complex process, becomes positively charged.

We already have the conditions, almost necessary, for a thunderstorm to occur. Earth positively charged, the lower part of the cumulonimbus negatively charged and the upper part positively. For positive and negative charges to interact, the air between them, which is insulating, needs to become conductive. The cloud helps this change. Its electric charges generate around it an electric field that, when it is strong enough, is capable of pulling electrons from atoms and molecules in the air. Air is said to ionize and become conductive. At that moment, millions of trillion electrons from the cloud travel in milliseconds towards the Earth in zigzag movements. Electron paths are illuminated by a purplish glow (lightning) that is typical of ionized air molecules. Simultaneously with the light, there is a very strong heating of the air (temperatures higher than the surface of the sun) that causes its expansion at very high speed. This expansion is what gives rise to thunder. The time that passes from when we see the lightning until we hear the thunder allows us to calculate how far away the storm is. We have explained cloud-ground lightning, but cloud-cloud lightning can also be produced, within the cloud, cloud-air, and ground-cloud. For another day, the operation of the lightning rods is also pending.
