Electric Scooter Buyers Guide 1

We strongly believe that electric scooters are going to be the future of personal transport and they are a way to relieve our towns and cities of traffic congestion in the short term as well as cutting down on our personal carbon footprints and most of all they are a really fun way to travel! By using an electric scooter you can cut your personal transport costs by a huge amount. Did you know that is only costs €0.01 to fully charge your electric scooter? Compare that cost with putting fuel in your car or getting the train or bus on a daily basis and you can see there are huge savings to be made. 

But what should you be looking for when shopping for an electric scooter? Luckily we have done most of the hard work on this front as we have researched our products immensely and only stock the best quality electric scooters.

What to look for when shopping for an electric scooter:

Our most popular electric scooters are the Kugoo S1 electric scooter and the Xiaomi M365 electric scooters. These two scooters are very similar in spec  but with the Kugoo S1 being €100 cheaper! It has the same range as the most expensive scooters on the market and it also comes with a 6 month battery warranty as well as being lighter than all other models at just 10kg. On top of this it has 3 adjustable heights which none of the other options have!

It is safe to say that this is a bargain at the price we sell it which is the cheapest you will find anywhere in Europe! So why is it cheaper? Well Kugoo are still and up and coming brand and they are aggressively pursuing the electric scooter market. Their customer service support is excellent and that makes our job much easier. As well as this they are able to undercut larger, more well known brands like Xiaomi and Segway which are of course premium brands. These well known brands do tend to be a bit more expensive but they have a great reputation and they are all very high quality electric scooters. 

All of our electric scooters have an easy fold system so they can be folded up and put in the car, brought on the bus or even carried around for the remainder of your journey. With that said the main things to look for when shopping for an electric scooter is the distance it can travel on a full charge, the max speed and the weight of the scooter. Here is a breakdown of the most popular models so you can decide which one is the best fit for your budget and needs.
