Best Electric Scooter for Adults: A Look at Three Options
Electric scooters are increasing in popularity as more time goes by. However, electric scooters are not only popular among the young crowds. They are becoming an enjoyable pastime for adults as well.
Electric scooters are, no doubt, a recreational invention. However, they can also serve a convenient purpose. For many adults, it's easier to ride the scooter than to walk down the street.
In this article, we will provide you with the information and details that you'll need in order to choose the right electric scooter. It's our task to present the best electric scooter for adults.
Keep in mind that although we may choose one that we think is best, it doesn't mean that there aren't other great electric scooters out there! All three of the scooters that we are about to share with you are excellent rides.
1. What's the difference between electric scooters for adults versus children?
That's an interesting question to ask yourself if you're having doubts about shopping for an electric scooter. However, please know that there are a few differences that set the two distinct scooters apart.
Adult electric scooters are designed for adults. They tend to be sturdier, heavier and often have seats. (Although, we will share with you an adult scooter that does NOT have a seat.)
Children's scooters tend to be smaller and more colorful. (We can't really picture an adult riding around on a bright pink, cartoon character-themed scooter.)
Let's take a look at the 3 best electric scooters for adults and compare them to each other. At the end of the article, we shall see which one offers the best of the best.
2. So, what's important to look for when searching for an adult electric scooter?
As with anything, there are certain details to be on the lookout for while shopping for the best electric scooters for adults.
Firstly, you will want to ensure that the scooter you choose will fit and support you. There's nothing more annoying than buying a brand new scooter and it's too small. Most scooter product descriptions display the size and/or weight limits.
Let's see what the size and weight calculations are for our 3 chosen products.
The Razor E300 measures at 41 inches by 17 inches by 42 inches in size. (Length by width by height.) The electric scooter weighs a light 52 pounds and offers a rider weight capacity of 220 pounds.
The Razor E300S measures at 41 inches by 17 inches by 42 inches in size. (Length by width by height.) Just like the Razor E300, the Razor E300S weighs a light 52 pounds and also provides a rider weight capacity of 220 pounds.
The Black Super Turbo definitely appears sturdy upon first glance. Although the product description doesn't state the length, width and height of the electric scooter nor the weight capacity, it does say that the scooter weighs a hefty 75 pounds.
It's easy to assume then that since the other two electric scooters weigh around 52 pounds that the Black Super Turbo can hold more weight than the 220 pound weight capacity than that of the Razor E300 and the Razor E300S.
**Out of this category, we have to award the winning scooter on size and weight capacity to the Black Super Turbo Electric Scooter. It appears to be the most adult friendly in terms of size and fit for adults. Not to mention, it just looks like fun!**
If you're needing or wanting an electric scooter that has a seat, then there are some things to consider before you make a purchase.
Remember, as an adult, you want to ensure that the scooter is made for your size, and that you're not confused by the electric scooter in which you're browsing at. This is why these details matter so much.
You need to check on the height of the seat and whether or not it's removable. This will tell you a lot about what you're looking at. Generally, children's electric scooters have shorter seats with smaller seat pads.
Let's take a look at our electric scooter selections have to offer with the seat options.
For what it's worth, the Razor E300 does NOT have a seat option. Discard this one from the seating considerations.
The Razor E300S comes with a convenient seat that is padded and cushion for your comfort. In fact, the seat is removable. This gives you the option to ride while standing up or sitting down.
The seat is attached to the electric scooter by four screws. This makes it incredibly easy to remove the seat for storage purposes or for the sake of time.
It's also been noted that the seat is high enough that adults that are around 5'3 in height struggle to reach the base with their tiptoes. If you're average height or taller, this would work perfectly for you.
As a side note: The company makes it clear that the weight capacity for the Razor E300S is 220 pounds. However, it has been notated that it can carry people that weigh 25 pounds beyond the 220 pound weight limit. This just goes to show that it's a great electric scooter and built to last.
The Black Super Turbo Electric Scooter won the award for the size and weight capacity. How does it hold up with the seating option?
The seat has a height of around 30 inches from the base. In fact, many grown men as tall as 6'3 have expressed their enjoyment and comfort with this electric scooter.
The seat is padded for cushion and is also removable for your convenience.
Battery Power and Longevity
When it comes to purchasing a great, adult, electric scooter, you want to ensure that you investigate the battery power and longevity. What good is the new ride if it doesn't last for very long? This is an important detail to learn about and then compare to other electric scooters. Obviously, you will want the electric scooter that has the best battery power and longevity. Let's take a look at the battery power for each of our three adult scooters.
Battery Power and Longevity
The Razor E300 Electric Scooter comes with a 24 volt, rechargeable battery system that's guaranteed to be long-lasting. It only takes twelve hours to charge completely.
On a full charge, the Razor E300 riding time lasts up to forty minutes. (That's continuous use, not idle time.)
The Razor E300S Electric Scooter has very a near identical battery operating system as that of the Razor E300.
It also has a guaranteed, long-lasting 24 volt battery that's rechargeable.
The first charge will take twelve hours. However, the recharging times may not always take the full twelve hours. (However, please note that it still can take up to twelve hours.)
When you're recharging the Razor E300S battery, don't be fooled by the green light. This doesn't mean that it's necessarily fully charged if it's only been on the charging dock for six hours. Keep it charging for the full twelve hours or close to it.
It isn't advised to keep the battery on charge for more than 24 hours.
Once the battery is fully charged, it's play time. The Razor E300S will operate for forty minutes of continuous running time. However, keep in mind that other factors also determine the operating time. Weight, terrain, time, speed and other riding factors may play a role in faster battery usage.
Like the Razor E300, if the Razor E300S is idle, it won't run out of juice in forty minutes. You get out of it with what you put into it.
The Black Super Turbo Electric Scooter has an amazing battery power and life in comparison to the Razor E300 and the Razor E300S.
It's equipped with a powerful battery system that contains 36 volts. This means that you can ride for a solid 18 miles before the battery loses power and gumption! That's a lot of power in one charge.
**So, who is the winner in the battery system arena? We have to award this one to the Black Super Turbo Electric Scooter with it's amazing 36 volt battery system and 18 miles of travel in one single charge!**
Naturally, the next thing you would want to focus on while shopping for a great, adult electric scooter is the motor and all the details about it. The motor is where you will find a lot of your moving power. Let's take a look at our three electric scooters and see what they have to offer in the motor category.
The Razor E300 Electric Scooter comes with a nice motor package. It's motor operates on a quiet, single speed, chain. With an incredibly high torque, it has a powerful motor that carries 300 watts of electrical power.
The Razor E300 can get up to 15 miles per hour in speed.
Even better? Unlike the previous Razor electric scooter models, this one isn't a kick start. It starts immediately while in standing position, and then you're on your way.
The Razor E300S Electric Scooter is, once again, very similar to the Razor E300 model. It's motor is also operated on a silent, single speed chain. It also reaches the speeds of up to 15 miles per hour.
Pretty much, if you have any questions about the Razor E300S motor, you can also view the Razor E300 motor and find your answers. They're motors are one in the same.
The Black Super Turbo Electric Scooter has been performing very well in this review article. Let's see how it will hold up on the motor category.
Do you remember that the Razor E300 and the Razor E300S have 300 watt motors? Well, the Black Super Turbo Electric Scooter has a spectacular 1,000 watt motor! Obviously, that blows the other two models out of the water!
Even more spectacular is that this motor spins at an incredible 3,000rpms. This gives the Black Super Turbo Electric Scooter the power to reach speeds of up to 26 miles per hour. That's incredible for an electrical scooter such as this!
**Without a shadow of the doubt, we have to award the winner of this category to the Black Super Turbo Electric Scooter. It has the most powerful motor of the three electric scooters.**
Now that you've read the article up to this point, you're probably wondering what we believe to be the best, adult, electric scooter and why.
In our opinion, the best on this list is the Black Super Turbo Electric Scooter. It has proven to be tougher, sturdier and the fastest. It comes with a removable seat and can hold more weight than the Razor E300 or the Razor E300S.
As for speed, it has the best with the capability to reach 26 miles per hour. Not to forget, it has the turbo mode button that helps you to increase speeds while still able to efficiently control and conserve your battery life.
The motor is far more powerful than the 300 watt Razor scooters. With a 1,000 watt, powered motor, the Black Super Turbo Electric Scooter is a real winner.
Even the tires have better tread than the other two. The Black Super Turbo can easily ride through gravel, dirt, potholes and mud and not be phased. However, the Razor E300 and the Razor E300S would do best to remain on solid pavement. They're tires don't have the powerful tread of that of the Black Super Turbo Electric Scooter.
Hopefully, you know more about electric scooters for adults and are able to make an easy, informed decision on which one would be best for you!
