The range of electric scooters is rapidly expanding. The greatest advantages of electric scooters are their excellent maneuvering characteristics and economical operation. They can travel 70 or even 100 kilometers on a single charge. Its lightweight design makes it easy to handle and operate.
Since electric scooters do not require frequent servicing, they are less likely to break down, further reducing running costs. When breakdowns do occur, they are more likely to be mechanical in nature, often caused by improper user riding or other user error.
Charging can be done at home or in a garage, and a regular electrical outlet is sufficient. The charging time depends on the condition and capacity of the battery, but as a general rule, it should not exceed 8 hours. If the scooter is charged in the evening, it will be ready for the next trip in the morning.
Electric scooters are most frequently used as a means of personal transportation in urban areas, where parking is much easier due to their size. Due to their limited range, they are not recommended for long distance trips, but nothing prevents a short trip to the countryside or to the pool.
The most important part of the scooter is the battery. If you decide to purchase a used scooter with no information or warranty regarding the battery\’s usage history, you are taking on a certain amount of risk. Therefore, a scooter with a removable battery that can be easily replaced seems to be the right choice. In addition, the removed battery can be recharged at a location with an electrical outlet on the go.
When operating an electric scooter, noiseless operation is a major advantage for the user. However, you must be very careful to take into account that other road users cannot hear you and therefore cannot adequately respond to traffic conditions.
