How to choose – a short guide & useful tips
There are many models on the market and choosing can be tough so here are a few things to bear in mind when you decide to order one, and some tips to help you make an informed choice. As mentioned above, there is also plenty of information about them in customers’ reports. The tips below are given in no particular order.
Electric mobility scooters types
You will notice that many models on the market are designed to be used both indoor and outdoor. Some are with features that make them suitable for travel. Some look like armchairs on moving platforms and those are for home and urban use on maintained and smooth surfaces, but you will see some that look like electric motorbikes and those are clearly good enough for off-road use.
This is anywhere in the range of 220-550 lb (100-227 kg), and this feature is normally always clearly indicated. So you can always find what suits you. Note that the heaviest Sumo wrestler is currently with the weight of 500 lb (227 kg), so most likely you will not need more than this.
Most of the models are with small wheels suitable for smooth surfaces at home or on the street. Some of them are flat-free so there is no air inside. But if you expect to use the scooter on not so smooth surfaces, it is best to go for larger wheels that will better absorb shocks and you will avoid bumpy rides.
These are electric tools so you have rechargeable batteries. Most of these electric scooters come with lithium battery and those are generally a very good option regarding the charging time and travel distance.
This parameter determines how far you can go on one charge. You can expect the range anywhere from 6 to 45 miles (10 to 72 km) so the differences are huge.
If you expect long distances and decide to buy a model with a short distance range, it is a good idea to consider getting a backup battery. Many of the scooters in the list come with a basket so this is where you can store it.
You can expect any value in the range 3.5-18 mph, and this is strongly dependent on the construction and the type of wheels. Typically the speed is around 4 mph. You will see some models that have options to choose your maximum speed.
Seats are usually very comfortable in most of the models, with solid armrests and some even with a headrest, and they are height adjustable. Folding electric scooters will allow you to close the seat and to reduce the size of the scooter when it is packed in the car.
Such an electric mobility scooter can be of aid when dealing with grocery shopping, and you will see that many of them come with some useful basket on the front or on the back. Most of them also come with an integrated light that you will need for safety. Some also have an anti-theft alarm.
So here is our list with heavy-duty electric mobility scooters, and with a few that could be described as lightweight folding electric mobility scooters, please have a look. Note that this is a dynamic list and there will be new scooters added, this depends on what is becoming bestselling on Amazon. This is why you might want to bookmark this text and check occasionally.
