Tips & Tricks You Should Know When Buying an Adult Electric Scooter

by King Kong on September 08, 2021

As we continue to see the popularity of electric scooters rise, especially in cities where commutes are taking longer and people are taking a more eco-friendly approach to transport, it’s easy to see why so many people are choosing to buy electric scooters.

Have you been considering an electric scooter as your new mode of transport? If you have, that’s great! We think electric scooters are the way forward, especially for shorter journeys. As with most purchases, however, you shouldn’t just buy the first scooter you come across. There are different factors that you need to consider, figure out what you want out of your scooter to make the best-informed decision you can.

What to Look For

Everyone has different needs and wants when it comes to their electric scooter. Luckily, as you can see on our electric scooter shop's website, there’s a model for everyone, you just need to figure out what you’re looking for. Here’s what we suggest:


Perhaps the most important factor is your budget. While there is a wide range of price points when it comes to buying electric scooters, the more you spend the higher quality features you’ll get (as a general rule). Expect to spend at least $799.

Miles per charge

Knowing the distance you are going to need your scooter for is vital. When looking at a scooter find out if a full charge will take you where you need to go. It’s also worth seeing how long it takes the scooter to reach a full charge and how portable the battery pack is.

Top speed

Different scooters have different maximum speeds. Having the fastest electric scooter isn’t always what matters. It’s more important to take the terrain and weather conditions into consideration so you can make the safest, most informed decision.


If you are going to be frequently travelling in the dark you need to make sure your scooter has appropriate lighting, in both the front and rear. You can, of course, always buy additional lighting if need be, but finding a scooter with great lighting built in will save you some of the extra hassle.


If buying an electric scooter that looks fit for a professional adult is something that concerns you, we suggest paying particular attention to the design. A sleek design will easily fit into a professional image, and many electric scooters are foldable to make for easier and less cumbersome carrying.

Find Your Ideal Scooter

Investing in an electric scooter is a great idea, saving you both time and money. Considering all the factors we mentioned means that you will end up with a scooter that you love and will last you a long time. Though all the features of your new electric scooter will be important, some are naturally going to matter more to you than they might to someone else. Find out which factors matter more to you to make the smartest, most informed decision.
