Electric Scooters

More and more people are discovering electric scooters are not only tons of fun they are one of the most economical means of transportation. Whether commuting to work,running errands or just riding for the joy of it they can be an awesome choice.

The scooters that have pedals more aptly named scooter/bikes don't require a license, registration,or insurance so they are really hassle free. Local laws may differ and some limit the motor size to 750 watts and a max speed of 20 mph so you need to check them first. The batteries are removable on most so you can charge them on the scooter or anywhere there is an electric outlet.

Lead acid batteries are the old standby but lithium batteries are much smaller, lighter, and generally give better performance but they are often a cost adder. Charging times vary but are typically 6 to 8 hours.

The saddles are more comfortable as is the riding position when compared to a bicycle but you probably wouldn't get one for exercise. Scooter /bikes as shown here do have pedals but they are primarily a back-up for the battery. 

The distance that you can ride between charges varies with terrain and rider weight but is generally 20 to 25 miles

Here are two of the most popular models
