When buying electric scooters, many individuals often make a wide range of mistakes. Resultantly, their investments in the scooters will be futile. To avoid such mistakes, you should note some essential things that can mar your experience of buying an electric scooter.
If you are ready to purchase an electric scooter this holiday season, here are 7 important things you must consider:
Without a doubt, people have different budgets when buying an electric scooter. Fortunately, electric scooters come in various levels. While you can get a budget-friendly electric scooter for about $300, you will need over $2,500 to get an extreme performance electric scooter. However, you must note that most of the best electric scooters are pricey. So, review your budget before you start shopping for an electric scooter.
You will likely need to carry your electric scooter regularly, especially if you need to use an elevator, stairs, or any area where scooters are not allowed. Therefore, you need to be certain whether it is comfortable for you to carry or not. This is why you must consider weight before buying any scooter.
To ensure portability and lightweight, you are advised to go for an electric scooter that weighs around 14 kg or less and can be folded. Lots of them are available in the market, so getting one shouldn’t be difficult for you.
The distance an electric scooter is capable of covering before running out of power is its range. So, unless you intend to only use your scooter inside your apartment, you must think about the range before choosing one. The most essential factors that determine the range of a scooter are average speed, motor power, scooter weight, mode, rider weight, and weather. Before selecting a product, read more about its range test and ascertain how long it can travel when used by someone of your body weight.
Do you intend to use your electric scooter at night? If yes, you should take a look at its lighting. A lot of electric scooters come with bright LEDs that can boost their visibility. Any scooter you want to choose must have both front light and rear light.
Each electric scooter has a maximum weight that it can support. So, if you don’t want to damage your scooter, you should choose one that is suitable for your weight. The majority of scooters support as much as 100kg or 120kg. Hence, most individuals will not have any issues with using them. However, if you are heavier, look for an electric scooter that can support your weight.
The quality of the braking system of your electric scooter is another vital thing you must consider. This is because it plays a key role in ensuring your safety as well as the control of the scooter. Whether your brakes are electronic or mechanical, make sure they are of great quality.
When using an electric scooter, you are likely going to run into dust and water. Hence, you need to consider the ingress protection (IP) rating of a scooter before buying it. This rating determines the ability of an electric scooter to resist water and dust.
The IP rating of a scooter can range from IPx0 (no protection against water) to IPx7+ (capable of being fully submerged in water). If you are going to be using your electric scooter inside the rain or other water bodies, make sure it has a high IP rating.
As long as you consider these top 6 factors, getting an electric motor scooter this holiday season will be a good investment.
