Safe and legal electric scooters

Before buy any scooter you should know the current regulations on public transport that regulate the use of new vehicles with personal mobility (VPM) within the new conditions of limit of the walker space used by everyone. The UK government's department of Transport has published Instruction on Personal Mobility Vehicles to establish the nature of this type of transport and the spaces allowed for its mobilization. This legislation states that these vehicles should not be regulated by the same rules as pedestrians or motor cars but by more specific rules.

The electric scooters drivers don’t need to have a driving license and the insurance is only an option in case the user decide to take it out. It can be used only on sidewalks, parks and lanes authorized by each municipality to ensure the safety of all citizens on public roads.

Essentials to keep in mind

If you are considering purchase one of these vehicles, you should check out some of the electric scooter specifications that best suit your driving style, as well as where to buy it and what the best alternatives are, for example:

Battery

Mostly the electric scooters found in Halfords or online stores like Amazon or Ebay. They have a power capacity of 4,4mAh and 6,6mAh. A Samsung electric battery consumes 6.6mAh to travel 25km, depending on the weight of the user, while a conventional 4.4mAh battery is limited to 15km. If you want to use the scooter on a daily basis, may have to consider a battery that can face long distances without continuously recharged. Please note that LG or Samsung batteries are the fastest to charge (up to 2 - 3 hours).

Weight  

There is a wide range of carbon fibre models weighing less than 22 pounds. On the other hand, iron and plastic ones, which are somewhat cheaper, weigh more than 26 pounds. Ideally, you should try it before buy it to make sure it fits your weight and driving ability.

Chassis and seat

Ask if the scooter has front suspension to cushion potholes and obstacles in the road.

Some models of electric scooters have a saddle seat for users of all ages. Generally these vehicles have a maximum power of up to 500 W. Usually they come in different models, colors and prices.

Maximum speed

The models of the producers Elektrik and E-Twow can travel up to 35 km per hour. We warn you don’t drive faster than 25 km/h to avoid overcharging the battery and to avoid risky situations for your safety and the others walkers.

Younger users prefer skateboarding for its greater speed, comfort and maneuverability. There are models that have a maximum speed of 22.5 km/h with a 500 W motor and a range of 12 km. Xiaomi producers has launched an electric skateboard designed with Canadian maple wood and aluminum that offers maximum strength for a weight of up to 100 kilos.   

Raycool electric scooters have a 1900 W brushless motor capable of traveling at 68 km. per hour. They are foldable, very fast, comfortable and versatile for you to move around on a daily basis.

The most popular scooters

The latest trend is the electric scooter with a power capacity of 1,800 W, very resistant and capable of reaching maximum speeds of 35 km. per hour. It weighs 45 kg, has LED front and back lights for better visibility, safety at night and on foggy days. Works with durable 48V 12Ah Gel batteries.

In recent years Xiaomi producers has gained popularity for its various models of electric scooters, its light weight, its versatility and its various price options. Among all of its advantages is the E-ABS brake disc system, which offers smooth braking over very short distances. One of the drawback often mentioned by users is that the back tire is frequently damaged, so it’s recommended to buy rubber-filled tires to prevent you from getting stuck in the middle of the street.
