Best Electric Scooters: Commute to Work or Ride for Fun
Ride around for pleasure or on your commute with these electric scooters
This electric scooter comes with a 36-volt, 7.8ah lithium-ion battery to give several hours of charge. It comes with a quiet brushless hub motor rated at 250 watts.
The frame is a lightweight, powder-coated, aircraft-grade aluminum alloy. It makes for easy storage by folding up the handlebars to meet with the deck. It can hold up to 255 pounds, travel up to 15 mph, and reach up to 15 miles by the end of a single charge.
The wheels are made of a high-quality and durable rubber material; however, they don’t provide a very smooth ride. Also, the battery is on the smaller side, and you will end up slowing down on an incline.
This light and the powerful electric scooter can reach 15 mph with its duel set of rechargeable 12-volt sealed lead acid batteries.
The best feature is you’ll get a lengthy 40-minute ride out of each charge and sometimes up to 45 minutes. Another excellent addition is that you can attach and remove the included seat.
It can be a little confusing to know when it is charged as there isn’t a battery monitor. Also, it may take up to 12 hours to fully charge the batteries. Another downside is the throttle comes with one speed and is not adjustable.
Macwheel’s electric scooter comes with a large 350-watt motor to propel the machine at speeds just over 15 mph. Charging the 270Wh, high-capacity, lithium-ion battery to full only takes around four hours.
You can easily monitor the amount of battery charge with the built-in level indicator. It includes five LED lights to let you know when you need to power it up again. It also comes with a speedometer with three variable speed modes. Plus, the airless pneumatic tires are capable of withstanding the harshest of bumps.
The price range is on the higher side, and the deck is on the shorter side, so you may feel uncomfortable standing on your feet. Also, you may find that reaching the top speed is only achievable by going downhill.
