A prominent and popular type of personal transportation device which is making its staple on the market are electric scooters with seats.
There are so many reason on WHY you should buy one. It is an easy way to save you money is to change the way you commute to work or generally travel around to nearby places. Obviously you can walk, cycle or take public transport but why not have a fun and comfortable ride? electric scooters with seats tick those boxes!
It’s totally normal nowadays to ride scooters they are no longer just for kids, if you are over 16 and have license by investing in an electric scooter you will save money as you will no longer need to commute and reduce emissions because you won’t be driving or taking public transport.
Depending upon the model and brand of the electric scooter, some devices carry a weight of up to 300 lbs, can travel at up to 40 mph and can ride distances beyond 40 miles. The seated electric scooter is perfect for the daily commute or for a ride out with friends on the weekend.
Also an important note if you want to take your scooter to the streets then we have an in depth article explaining if your scooter is street legal?
We have reviewed the five best seated electric scooters with seats currently available in the market.
After many long days of research on this post we have found the NanRobot D5+ to be the number 1 electric scooter with a seat. With not only being one of the fastest scooters in the world reaching speeds of up to 43mph. It is very portable as you can fold it and has a range of other useful features.
When looking for the top scooter we did not want a chain drive or lead acid batteries. We found the D5+ had a 1. 52V 26ah Li battery which is one of the most powerful offered by any manufacturer. We purchased this scooter and gave it a good lenhty test run.
The braking system is unbelievable. They named it the “EBS” (electric braking system). We have to say it does take some getting used to and I make sure to tell anyone who wants to have a go on the scooter to “watch out for the brakes” As they can literally feel like they will throw you over the handlebars (but they won’t).
As expected with a scooter that can go up to 40mph you need top class brakes and this is what the D5+ has.
There is a setting that enables you to have 3 different choices of braking power. (I left it on the default setting of 2, It took quite a while to get used to it we have to say.
With 10 inch anti slip Pnuematic tiress the scooter rode on the different changing terrains very well which is a vital part of an E-Scooter.
The 2 x 1000 watt motors provided gave me all the control, power and speed I’ll ever need to use. I tested the D5+ in a hilly area where some of the roads have steep 25° inclines.
This was with riding mostly with speed mode 2 which went up to 22 mph. And I kept the DUAL on all the time. The “DUAL” function basically means that both motors are used all the time, so a 2000 watt output!
I found the build quality and finish quite nice looking and it got a few compliments from people. There is some play room with the steering column as it moves a bit however, I think it might be as a result of the folding mechanism (majority of all foldables have this).
Seat and other features
Lasty the seat, this electric scooter comes with a handy seat I found I had to put a wood plug in the seat post just to keep the seat from sometimes slipping down (maybe because I am a big guy).
Moreover I like the fact that the NanRobot had 1 inch spring of travel movement, so when you sit down and your ride over something bumpy it eases the impact.
The Throttle and Controller are great functions but it is a shame that the instruction manual does not go into enough detail on how to use it.
I managed to find a manual for the Dualtron II on You Tube feel free to check this and other similar videos . It does good job as that scooter uses the same controller 🙂
Also not noted anywhere the D5+ has a cut-off of 43V in order to safeguard the battery. But there is no notice when you’re getting close to cut-off point.
The scooter just stops. I recharged the scooter when it got to around 2 bars of battery left. The advertised range is 10 hours but that is only on mostly flat surfaces, depending on your terrain and what mode you use it will vary. But I think and average of 7 hours is fair to say.
I personally think the D5+ is a good alternative to an e-bike. It does the same things as an electric bike and at half the cost.
Also a BONUS I used my Amazon Prime card to purchase the D5+ I got a 5% credit back! So if you have the same be sure to use this when purchasing.
Also I some users have protested about some of the bolts not being tight enough. NanRobot have said all the controls on the handlebars are shipped loose. They do this in order to reduce the strain on the wire.
They need to be re-positioned anyway once it arrives. Tightening is easy and should be part of any purchase. I’m very happy with my purchase and the supplier has been very responsive to the point of overkill.
