If you have had an interest in scooters, but don’t know enough about them, then please stay tuned into this article. We will go over benefits of purchasing an electric scooter, styles, features, and price.
What separates an electric scooter apart from its gas-powered cousin? For one, they are environmentally friendly. Gas is not required to fill the motor, and electric scooters fill in perfectly for short and quick commutes. Instead of taking your car, bus, or other gas-powered form of transportation you can jump on your scooter. Using the scooter for those little commutes can help reduce your carbon footprint.
So not only does it help our environment but as I mentioned it is a great vehicle for short trips. Whether your headed to school just a block away, a neighbor’s house, or a cruise in the park, electric scooters are perfect for those types of trips. Instead of dealing with traffic in your car in most places you can take a sidewalk or path.
They are great for people who don’t have a lot of storage place as well. Not everyone has a spacious house with a giant basement or garage for storage. A ton of storage space is definitely not needed considering most scooters can easily be folded and stored away almost anywhere. This handy feature makes it ideal for those who have studio apartments or for anyone really who has limited storage space. They also feature a posi lock for keeping them safely folded.
Most of my articles, if you’ve read them, focus on reviewing ride-ons for children. Electric scooters, however, make great vehicles for adults! With many allowing a maximum load of 265 pounds or more they are perfectly capable of accommodating an adult. Now the children aren’t the only ones who get to have fun riding around the town. Please make sure to check weight limits on any scooter you are considering purchasing to make sure your current weight is safe for riding.
Some people may have concerns about battery life, speed, distance the electric scooter can travel, and charging time. Many of the scooters sold today have a battery life of 6 to 8 miles based on one charge. Typical speeds range from 10 miles per hour to 22 miles per hour. It all depends on the type of scooter, its wattage, and the weight of the rider. They are not all created equal, meaning there are bigger models with more bells and whistles that allow for higher speeds and longer distances. Total charging time usually averages 4 to 8 hours. The battery life can also last about 250 cycles.
