    It all depends on the power ratings that your scooter needs and the ratings of the converter in your car. If the two match then you should be ok.

    But before doing anything check all available documentation and talk with your scooter’s user support.

    It is also possible that you might be able to get a charger from the scooter manufacturer that is compatible with your car.

    you can safely charge your scooter’s battery using this converter, the only problem is that you cannot leave the converter connected to your car battery permanently; these converters consume electricity from the car battery, and they tend to heat alot, even when no power is consumed from the other side of the converter(the 110 or 220 vAC output), you dont wanna end with an empty car battery nor a damaged converter.
