e-TWOW Booster PLUS – V
This electric scooter impresses not only by its weight, but also by its opening capabilities. It was created in honor of the 5-year anniversary of the manufacturer and it has all the technology available to it. For example, the lightweight Samsung battery with a capacity of 10.5A*h. A full charge is enough for about 40 km! Also, the electric scooter can boast a new controller, which made the acceleration is incredibly smooth, and it is very important when maneuvering among pedestrians.
This vehicle moves without much noise, even on paving stones. This is achieved not only through the use of an electric motor, but also through the use of wheels made of solid rubber. They’re still pretty good at absorbing minor bumps. However, this scooter also has shock absorbers, so it won’t shake you. Diameter of the wheels is 8 inches. Rear wheel has a classic mechanical brake. But the front one has a regenerative brake that stores the released energy in the battery. Braking is smooth and you won’t fly over the handlebars.
The electric scooter construction is quite strong. The manufacturer claims it can handle a 120-kilogram weight. But we don’t recommend putting too much weight on it, because every extra kilogram will reduce the mileage on a single charge. The e-TWOW Booster PLUS – V is powered by a 500-watt electric motor. Through the on-board computer with color display, you can select the mode of operation. In particular, you can limit the maximum speed to get as far away as possible. If you remove the restriction, you will accelerate up to 25 km/h (if your weight does not exceed 75 kg, you can reach 33 km/h), which can be considered an excellent result for such a small scooter, which also has a folding design. It should be noted that in order to perform all manipulations with the cruise control is not necessary to connect to the vehicle with a smartphone, for this is quite enough the capabilities of the aforementioned on-board computer.
Perhaps this is a rare case where an electric scooter does not have any special disadvantages. It weighs 10.8 kilograms and its folding mechanism makes it easy to carry the e-TWOW Booster PLUS – V on a train or other public transportation. If you have 60,000. You will not be disappointed in your purchase!
- There are shock absorbers hidden in the body;
- A folding mechanism is used;
- Really low weight;
- Brakes are thoughtful;
- Decent mileage from a full charge;
- Not a bad top speed;
- There is a trip computer;
- Withstands even a serious load.
- High cost.
Razor E Prime
Another folding electric scooter, which should appeal to both children and adults. Its weight, it is hard to believe, is only 9.72 kg. It was achieved by using lightweight materials from which most of the vehicle is made. Alas, this affected the maximum load – it is only 80 kg. This does not mean that with a heavier load, the scooter is sure to break. But such a chance is sure to happen, especially when overcoming all sorts of obstacles.
As you have already realized, first of all this model is designed all the same for children. At least the use of a rather modest 250-watt motor-wheel here says it all. Also, adults will not like the fact that a full charge of the battery provides only 40 minutes of continuous travel. At a top speed of 24 km/h, you can’t expect any kind of long range. And what else do you want from the battery, the capacity of which is only 3.2 A * h? By the way, it takes 4 hours to fully charge it.
The 200 mm front wheel, made of polyurethane, is also subject to heavy loads. The electronic braking is also geared for teenagers. Technically it can be considered a double, because to stop you can also use a foot press on the rear wing, which protects it from splashing.
In short, the Razor E Prime is a great electric scooter. But it is suitable for an adult only if he maintains an excellent physical shape. Teenagers will be the most excited about this model. Many of them will not even be confused by the lack here a full-fledged onboard computer. Alas, to adjust something will not work with your smartphone, since the possibility of its connection, again, is excluded.
- The electric scooter was very light;
- Decent top speed;
- Implemented smooth throttle adjustment;
- It uses a folding mechanism;
- It has a battery charge indicator.
- The range on a full charge is about 15 km;
- Modest motor power;
- The price can not be called low;
- I would like a more advanced braking system.
Ninebot Kickscooter ES1
This electric scooter also has a folding design. It allows you to easily take it with you on the bus or streetcar, not to mention the train. In contrast to the model that opened our rating, this specimen is simplified as much as possible. Thanks to this the manufacturer managed to reduce the price to 27 thousand rubles. rubles.
Ninebot Kickscooter ES1 has a battery that charges in 3.5 hours. And you will not be able to detect it! The fact that this model has it hidden in the steering rack. This should protect it from both dust and moisture. But this does not mean that we recommend actively operating the electric scooter in the rain.
The manufacturer claims that his creation can withstand a 100-kilogram payload. But don’t expect impressive speed from the scooter – the maximum speed is claimed at 20 km/h. And if you activate the economy mode, it will not reach this speed. But you will be able to cover about 25 km!
The electric scooter is moved by two wheels. The front one has a diameter of 200 mm. Rear, on the other hand, is a 192-millimeter, and that is where the 250-watt motor is connected.
On the steering wheel of this model has a LED display. It will show you the current speed, charge level, selected mode, as well as the status of the connection via Bluetooth. Connecting to a smartphone here is necessary only to see the total mileage and other useful information.
Otherwise, this is a typical mid-budget electric scooter. It includes an electric brake, augmented with anti-lock braking system. And the weight of the vehicle is 11.3 kg. In short, it’s a great buy for 27 thousand. rubles! Or even for a little more money. But still it is not the best option for those who like to travel on such a vehicle somewhere out of town – such people may not have the maximum mileage from a full charge.
- It uses a folding design;
- It is possible to connect to a smartphone;
- There is a bright LED display;
- Able to withstand more than just a child;
- Quite a good braking system;
- The battery is protected from dust and moisture;
- The cost can not be called very high.
- Not very high power;
- I would have liked a longer range;
- Metal rumbling when overcoming the curb;
- Regular signals, which cannot be switched off.
iconBIT Kick Scooter TT v3
One of the easiest electric scooters in its design. Its frame is made of aluminum alloy. This makes it clear that the vehicle must be able to withstand even a 100-kilogram load. It is powered by a 250-watt motor. It has enough power to accelerate up to 20 km / h. This figure is not particularly high, but when driving in a city where there are a lot of pedestrians, it’s enough.
A 5 Ah lithium-ion battery is used here as a power source. Charge it up for about 4 hours. In the future, you can follow its level of charge through the LED display, which also indicates the current speed and mode. Do not hope for a particularly long ride on a full charge. And you should not use an electric scooter when it’s raining, otherwise you could cause irreparable damage to the battery.
The engine here is equipped exclusively with the front wheel. Its diameter is only 6 inches. As for the brakes, stopping is done by pressing the mudguard against the rear wheel. Not the best solution, but in this price segment it can be found quite often. You can also note the presence here quite bright headlights, consisting of five LEDs. The manufacturer has not forgotten about the rear light.
The weight of this model is 8.5 kg. Wonders? In fact, there is nothing surprising in this figure. Do not forget that this electric scooter has very small wheels. And it feels like it’s not the kind of vehicle that can withstand jumping or doing other stunts. But the cost of this model definitely justifies its price. It’s a great way to save weight, especially if you’re willing to put up with not being able to send your stats to a smartphone.

Many people know the brand HIPER by its portable batteries. However, since some time, the company began to dabble with other products that also include a battery. One of them is the VX500 electric scooter. It turned out to be quite interesting. It’s only 15 thousand for it. rubles, at the same time the vehicle quite adequately shows itself when making urban journeys.
It is felt that the manufacturer tried its best to reduce the weight of the electric scooter. To this end, he equipped it with tiny wheels, whose diameter does not exceed 127 mm. Modest received and the electric motor, its power is only 180 watts. Even the battery was a bit cut down – competitors are often able to offer more than 4Ah. Sadly, it also takes 4.5 hours to charge such a battery.
The use of the above-mentioned components resulted in a scooter weight of only 7.7 kg. It is believed that even a child can carry such a vehicle up to the fifth floor. Strictly speaking, it is teenagers who will like this model the most. Adults may not appreciate the fact that the battery runs out after 7 km. Though it’s necessary to admit that some characteristics of an electric scooter will still suit you. For example, the brakes work well here. Front wheel is stopped by pressing the corresponding button, rear wheel is braked by pressing the mudguard to it. Another thing worth mentioning is the possibility of acceleration up to 20 km/h. But it should be admitted that such acceleration starts to consume energy actively. At last, the joyful picture is completed by the aluminum alloy which is used to make the most part of the scooter. It is unlikely anything will happen to it even under a heavy load.

Finishes our review children’s electric scooter. Its manufacturer immediately makes it clear, an adult this vehicle simply can not withstand. To be precise, a maximum of 60-kilograms is claimed.
Interestingly, this specimen has a folding mechanism. This means you can take your kid on the train anywhere. Not to mention the possibility of adjusting the height of the steering wheel. The child will grow up – the scooter will grow up after him.
This model is equipped with 200 mm wheels. It is easy to see that many “adult” electric scooters have the same. However, in this case, one of the wheels is only driven by a 150-watt motor. Needless to say, that such a motor can only cope with the weight of the child? The engine gets its energy from the 2.6 A*h battery, which takes a couple of hours to charge. It ends after overcoming in a better case 10 km.
Children’s electric scooters almost never accelerate to particularly high speeds. Here too, this parameter will not exceed 15 km / h. They are, however, also quite sufficient, especially if a 7 year old child is driving them. Low speed allowed the manufacturer to abandon the handbrake. Instead of it, it uses the traditional pressing of the mudguard to the rear wheel.

- Folding design is used;
- Ideal for most children;
