An electric scooter is a great investment no matter what your age. It’s fun, it’s practical, and it’s even environmentally friendly. We researched some of the best rated ones out there and put together this electric scooter review. Whether you’re looking for a scooter for yourself or your son or daughter, you’ll find some great options here. Before we get into our list, let’s take a look at some of the key features you need to know about.
Age: Some of these are specifically made for adults, some specifically for children. The differences between the 2 are pretty significant so make sure you’re looking at the right kind for you needs. The biggest differences are max speed and weight limit.
Weight Capacity: The weight capacity varies a lot between our top picks. Scooters made for adults can hold more weight than those meant for kids, but there’s even a wide range there. Some hold 265 pounds, some 185.
Max Speed: This is the fastest the scooter can go in ideal circumstances. So, a scooter with a fully charged battery, a rider that weight less than the max capacity, and a flat and smooth terrain.
Power: This will tell you how much oomph the scooter has. It’s worth noting that some of the child’s scooters aren’t overly powerful but there are some adult ones that really have a lot of power behind them.
Dimensions: These are the measurements of how large the scooter is when it’s unfolded and ready to ride. One of the key things to look for is the height, especially if you’re very tall or very short.
Warranty: The longest warranty period for these scooters is a year, though some only offer 60 or 90 days. Make sure you know the ins and outs of your warranty. It’s better to know what is and isn’t covered just in case.
Now that you know what to look for when you shop, let’s move on to the next section of our electric scooter buying guide. We put our top and budget picks at the top of the list so they’re easy to find. That’s the best place to start, especially if you’re in a hurry. You’ll get a good idea of the range that’s available. Stick around until the end if you can. We really did find a nice variety. Okay, let’s go!
