8 Best Adult Electric Kick Scooters & Choosing the Right One for You

Great for short commute to work, more compact and lighter than a foldable bicycle and small enough to take with you anywhere – electric scooters connect the dots to get you to and back from work quickly.

If you have to commute to work on the train and dread the walk to the office from the train station or if you have to park and ride, or found a closer and free spot to park but need to leg the rest of the way to office, one of these electric kick scooter will get you in and out quickly.

NOTE: Just a quick reminder or tip for those new to electric kick scooter, get your scooter up to about 3mph then twist the throttle to start the motor. Most motor will not engage from a standing start. If unsure, please consult the product instructions.

5 Factors to Consider When Choosing an Electric Kick Scooter

Make no mistake, just like a bicycles, these kick scooters will need servicing too. Oiling of chain especially after riding in the rain often is a must to keep things moving smoothly. While it may not be frequent and immediately obvious, you will need to consider replacement parts like tyres, batteries, belt and charging adapters. It pays to work out the cost and availability of these parts up front to make sure that you know the total cost of owning and running this. Other key considerations are charging time, distance covered per full charge, speed and maximum riders weight. We list these parameters for each of the kick scooters in our list below but to give you an idea of what to expect, check out our table here.

  • Run Time*: up to 40 minutes or Range*: up to 13 miles
  • Speed: up to 26 mph
  • Charging Time: 4-12 hours
  • Maximum Riders Weight: 100 – 120kg (220 – 265 lbs)
  • Service and Replacements

*Run time and Range may vary depending on size of battery, size of electric motor, riding conditions, climate and/or proper maintenance.


Also, there is the option of a scooter with seat or without one. While we find the seat version unappealing and unnecessary especially when you only have a short distance to cover and when you have already sat in the train or car before jumping on one of these, its worth considering should you find one useful.
