If you have been looking at electric scooters and trying to decide which one would be right for you, then there are a few questions you may want to consider. Are you going to use it for leisure or to commute to and from work? How far are you going to be traveling? When faced with the many different models of electric scooters, these questions will help you decide which one is right for you scootmobiel

So basically you need to consider the range of the electric scooters mobility, the rider’s weight, the terrain of the area where it will be used, its portability as well as the climate it will be used in. You also want to try a few out to make sure as you can have a choice of stand-up or sit down ones and of course, you need to know what your budget will allow.

When talking about range, it refers to how far the batteries will take you on a single charge, as most electric scooters, under ideal conditions on flat land, no wind, etc., have a standard range of approximately 8 miles. However, it is more likely that a few less miles will be closer to the average. As well, a rider who weights between 180 and 250 lbs will be able to ride most of the different powered scooters. A heavier person will be a little more limited as to the types of such devices available to them.

The terrain is also a consideration when choosing powered scooters, obviously the flatter the land the better. If there is going to be hill climbing involved, then you may want to consider making sure that you purchase one of the 350 watt electric motor scooters. You also need to consider portability, meaning how much will you need to carry the electric scooter around? Most are small enough but some are also fairly heavy and not as easy to fold.

Another thing to consider before you purchase an electric scooter is the climate. If it is sunny and warm pretty much any one of the electric scooters would work for you. If you are stranded in the rain, then most manufactures say it is fine to go ahead and ride the scooter back home if you have no other option. Most of the motors are sealed and a little rain should not hurt them but stay out of the rain if possible. Also keep in mind that both extreme heat and extreme cold may reduce the scooters range.
