Electric Scooters are becoming more popular by the day and for all the right reasons- They are ideal for everyday commutes, good for the environment, and can be extremely cost-effective in comparison to their fuel-based counterparts.

However, since they are quite new to the picture, the knowledge around them can still be limited. So if you are planning to buy an Electric Scooter, here are a few things to look for in one.

Things to Look for in an Electric Scooter

Here are a few things need to be considered while choosing the electric scooters:

1. Design

From stunning looks to a strong build, ensure that your Electric Scooter has it all. See to it that your Electric Scooter has comfortable seating, ample leg space, boot storage, and a tough build that's suitable for all kinds of roads. It is equally necessary to ensure that its batteries have an IP 65/67 enclosure to protect it against rains or any other kind of entry of water.

2. Weight

Since most Electric Scooters are light in weight, they also have a limit to how much weight they can carry without affecting their performance. Most Electric Scooters can carry anywhere between 140-160kg of weight- So it’s crucial to keep that in mind while choosing one that's ideal for you.

3. Charging time

Since Electric Scooters require regular charging, their charging hours is an important factor. Most of them take around 5 hours to charge completely but just like our mobile phones, it makes sense to follow the "the less time it takes the better" philosophy here as well.

4. Range

Different Electric Scooters offer different ranges per charge. And if you are someone who is planning to use them on a regular basis, it's crucial to check if the distance you plan to commute falls under the range your Electric Scooter offers.

5. Speed

There are two types of Electric Scooters- High speed and low speed. The low-speed models run at a speed up to 25 kmph and do not require any licence, registration, insurance, etc. So if you are okay with riding slow, you can definitely explore some low-speed options.

6. Battery type

Electric Scooters can either be equipped with lead-acid or lithium-ion batteries. Lithium-ion batteries are more efficient and unlike lead-acid batteries, do not produce any harmful electrical waste at the end of their lifecycle. However, the prices of Lithium-ion powered Electric Scooters are usually higher than the ones that run on lead-acid batteries. So make sure that you factor this in while making your choice.

7. Warranty

Having a warranty not only assures quality but also peace of mind. Not all Electric Scooters come with one, so double-check on this factor while choosing your ride.

Summing Up...

While there are many benefits to buying an Electric Scooter, it's crucial to get one that serves your needs the best. For example, you might need one to travel short distances and speed might not be much of a concern for you. A low-speed Electric Scooter can be a convenient and hassle-free choice in such cases.

If you are looking for some options that are basically a tick mark on all these features, you can check out our range of Electric Scooters.
