Essential Tips to think about when buying an Electric Scooter for adults

In short, the choice of electric scooter is down to what you will use it for. So think about why you want to buy one and what you need the scooter for. Is it for work or just for fun? How will you take it around with you? Do you want to take on public transport, how will it be stored at work? How long can you go on one charge and how long do you have before it needs to charged it again? There are endless questions.  But fear not this guide contains everything you need to know to help answer all of your questions.

Driving style and comfort

The comfort depends largely on the way you ride the scooter. The least comfortable, but the most suitable are the electric kick scooters. These are your standard scooters in which both feet are positioned on the deck of the scooter. These are excellent scooters for commuting if you don’t want to invest in an electric scooter. If you are looking for a little more comfort and functionality, a scooter with a seat may be perfect for you. These are available in many variants, from scooters with very simple seats to the more fun and convenient electric scooters.

It is also important to  note the maximum weight that the scooter can withstand. Most scooters can take over 200lbs and some electric scooters can hold 300lbs or more. Keep in mind that more weight usually means more money.

Performance

Free eBook OfferThere are a number of things to consider when thinking about the performance of a motorized scooter. We think the most important statistics to consider are speed, battery life and re charge time.

The maximum speed of your scooter depends on what you want to use. If you are looking for fun, the scooter with the highest speed is probably good for you. Similarly, if you are looking for a scooter to travel every day, maximum speed will be important, but this should not be a priority rather focus on battery life as you will want the scooter to last all day long. Electric scooters can usually reach a speed of 15 to 20 miles per hour, and some get much more, so this will get you to your destination much faster then cycling or with a kick scooter

The range of scooters is important for what you want to use for. This can also vary considerably, not just between brands and models, but their environment and temperature play a very important role. For example, if you live in a cold mountainous area, you probably will not get the range which the scooter was advertised for, as you may be travelling up hills which can slow you down.

Also the range of scooters and the charging time is extremely important to consider. Some scooters can take up to 10 hours to fully charge, which can be extremely annoying (Personal experience). Others may charge in just 1.5 hours, which is much better, when you are commuting and say need to charge this in your office or place of work.

Portability

If you are looking to use your scooter for work, portability will be very important. Some electric scooters can be easily folded and stored. Some even have storage bags and original ways to carry your scooter when you’re not using them, like the handles. 

The weight and size of the scooter will also play an important role in thinking about portability. You want it to be as light as possible when you think about it using public transport or you need to transport it with the stairs.
