Good to hear your Lovelec works fine for you. Sad to hear the range problems with you Vado.With Lovelec Diadem in Tłuste, Mazovia, Poland. I now take daily 40+ km (25+ mi) rides for commuting, fitness and fun. I enhanced Lovelec with proper winter tyres, strong lighting, a Mirrycycle, better saddle, better pedals etc etc. I have chosen this e-bike for the coming winter as it gives great range at good average speed (the bike is "restrictable on demand") and comfortable riding position. It is also quite cheap and simple in maintenance. I even ordered a spare 576 Wh battery so inexpensive it is compared to the Western standards.
Cold and strong headwinds are issue here now. I took the photo from inside a bus shelter where I was taking some rest after riding into headwind on the PAS 3 (this is effectively a Turbo mode as PAS 4 or 5 take no apparent effect greater than PAS 3).

Here, with Turbo Vado 5.0 on another regular ride in a nearby village. Again, resting in a bus shelter. I must say Turbo Vado 5 has hopeless battery range even if it is a 604 Wh battery. There's no fun riding in Eco mode on the fast Vado; it becomes only agile in the Sport mode but the battery is used up definitely too early. So no real winter rides with Turbo Vado. Beautiful e-bike, so fast, comfortable and cutting fly-overs like a knife cutting butter but the range anxiety is beyond belief here...
