What to Look For in an Electric Scooter
Electric scooters come in different sizes so it is important to get the right one suited to your child’s age. Many electric scooters tend to start for kids from 8 years and upwards and there are some for the age group of 3 – 6 years old. Larger frame, deck and tyres styles are usually designed for teenagers and adults.
Although electric scooters specify the age range for the model, it is important to check the max weight a scooter can hold otherwise it can result in damage to the motor or the electric scooter may not run so well.
Most kid sized scooters will hold up to 54kg but some models specify the scooter is suitable for up to a teenage age. The teenager sized electric scooters will hold a max weight of up to 100kg.
The size of the tyres varies on electric scooters as it depends on the age group the scooter is suitable for. However, they tend to be made quite wide, with thick rubber and are pneumatic (air filled) which gives the electric scooter the sturdiness and balance needed. This ensures the electric scooter is durable and can be used on everyday terrains which give kids a smooth ride.
Some electric scooters will have the option to have a removable padded seat fitted on. Having a seat can offer kids some comfort on longer journeys.
For easy portability, electric scooters can be folded up so it can be carried when needed. It can be easily stored away as well so it doesn’t actually take up much space and it is out of the way.
The max speed of an electric scooter for kids and teens is usually 15 mph. The speed is controlled with the twist acceleration control on the grip handlebar so the kids can ride at a speed they are comfortable with. However, if the child is quite young, then it may be a better idea to look for electric scooters that run up to a max speed of 10 mph only until they are older.
They can start up with the ignition key or with the push of a button but some require the user to manually scoot until they reach 3mph before twisting the throttle to start the motor.
This may be ideal for kids who have never rode an electric scooter before as it allows them to get used to one. It is easier for them to stop as well before the motor starts if they are not confident yet.
The brakes can usually be found on the handlebar (hand brake) or on the board (foot brake) itself. Having the brake on the handlebar may be more ideal as it is easier to access since this is where children will be holding on when riding. A foot brake may not be so accessible as kids will have to look down or move their foot to the brake which can cause them to lose balance.
Despite being fitted with motors, devices are not loud. They run quietly because of the chain driven motor they run on. Along with the thick tyres, this provides kids with a smooth and noiseless ride which is safe as they will still be able to hear what is going on around them.
Battery and Charge
A rechargeable battery pack is fitted on electric scooters which can usually be found underneath the board. Most electric scooters will require an initial charge time of 12 – 18 hours depending on the model but afterwards, the charge time is pretty quick.
A full single charge will give kids an average run time of up to 40 minutes which is about 5 miles of travel journey. Some models may run up to 50 minutes. This run time is more than enough for children as they would not need to be travelling far distances.
Electric scooters don’t cost that much and it will give kids much enjoyment as well as being very useful for them. It will half travelling times for them ensuring they get to their destination safely and on time.
Having an electric scooter gives kids a chance to get out of the house to get some exercise and fresh air which is vital to one’s wellbeing instead of staying in playing video games all day.

Many toys also act as gadgets for kids and they are always after the latest gadget toy to be the envy of their friends. An electric scooter is one of the most sought after gadget toy for kids as it is almost like having a car for them.
Electric scooters are not just for kids, they can be for adults too. Some adults use an electric scooter as a method of transportation as it saves them money and time.
This fun and convenient device usually consists of two wheels and is powered by electricity with a rechargeable battery pack attached on the board. This drives the electric motor within the device.
A board is provided for the user to stand on when riding the electric scooter. On top of the board, a long bar with two grip handles is attached at the front for users to hold on whilst riding. The handlebar can turn left or right to enable the user to make turns.
With an electric scooter, it provides kids with fun whilst getting them to places quicker. It is very safe to use as the max speed goes up to 15 mph which means it can be used on pavements so parents don’t have worry about their children riding on the roads.
The wheels are usually thick tyres which provide the scooter with the balance it needs. This allows kids to stand on the board with 2 feet when riding which is safer than riding a manual scooter as there is less risk of tripping and injury. For extra safety, helmets and protective gear can be worn as well.
There are models for younger kids as well which have two additional smaller wheels for stability and balance. Some electric scooters also come with a seat for more comfort.
