The electric scooters are extremely popular because they are considered to be a practical commuting tool. Usage of escooter differs among users, no matter what you are looking to use it for, chances are, we will have an e-scooter that fits your needs. Still on the fence whether you should get one? Perhaps this article will be very useful for you!
Here are the TOP 4 REASONS why you should own an e-scooter today, very practical reasons.
1. BUDGET BUDGET, BUDGET!
The price of an e-scooter can range from as low as $350 – $2000. (quality ones, anything below $350 you should be very skeptical) As the price increases, so does the size, functions and specification of the e-scooter. The most expensive e-scooter is still cheaper than a regular motorcycle, which explains its popularity here. Not to mention, it is free from petrol and parking fees.
2. Easy to maintain
Couldn't stress this point enough, there are not much you need to do in order to "maintain" your E-Scooter. Apart from the once-in-the-blue-moon unlucky punctured tires, there are almost nothing much you need to do except keeping it safe from water splashes. We know many users that do not even change their tires after 2 years of usage. It's completely up to you!
3. Eco-friendly alternative transport
Especially in cities, where parking lots are scarce and the air is particularly polluted by exhaust gases, electric scooters make an environmentally friendly contribution in terms of mobility. On average, a car emits 164.2 grams of CO2 per kilometer traveled. An electric scooter does not emit CO2 and consumes very little electricity.
For people who have a commute that is not more than 30 kilometers, it is worth the purchase. The range of the electric scooter is with a fully charged battery between 30 and 100 kilometers - and rising. If you want to play it safe, take the scooter charger to work and charge the battery on site, easy peasy.
4. Timer saver - Get around places fast
No more waiting for buses or squeezing into packed trains early in the morning. Thinking of going to the Mcdonald's to pick up a burger but it's 5km away? Turn on your electric scooter and you can be there in 10 mins. How does that sound?

Let's first take a look in Bird, Spin and Limebike electric scooters.
It is an open secret that Ninebot manufactures the escooters that are being used for scooter sharing program in US (Mainly Xiaomi Mijia Electric Scooter)
XiaoMi Mijia Electric scooters are usually ideal for short-travel, about 2-4 miles. It's not ideal for riders who wants to go high speed, travel far, or heavy users.
Due to the narrow deck and lack of power, you might find these Mijia scooters ineffective for pillion riding.
So.... What are the specs differences and tips on what to look out for when buying an electric scooter?
1. Battery Capacity
Battery capacity plays a big part in your travel mileage, if you're getting a scooter that has a small battery capacity, you won't be able to travel far, vice versa.
Xiaomi Mijia Electric Scooter Battery Capacity: 7.8AH (6 miles travel distance)
eMove/Maxspeed IV/Speedway 4 Electric Scooter: 26AH - 30.5AH (49 - 62miles travel distance)
All other electric scooters: At least 10.4AH (18 miles travel distance)
There might not even be a need for you to own an electric scooter if you only need to cover a short travel distance daily, 2-4 miles. Escooter Sharing programs are everywhere on the streets to solve your last mile problem.
However if you need to travel longer distance, stronger electric scooter, you might consider owning one electric scooter. Given the long endurance mileage, you will get lots of value for your money spent.
2. Weight and Power of the Scooter
Heavier scooters are able to hold heavier adult riders, they also tend to have wider deck and wheels, providing stability during your usage.
If you're looking for an electric scooter that is light and portable, you may find eMove 2.0 ideal.
The higher the power, the stronger your scooter is. If you travel environment tends to overcome slopes often, you will like to get the eMOVE Cruiser, Maxspeed, Speedway series. The smaller scooters will not have enough power to push the rider to overcome slopes.

- Work - If your scope of work depends on the electric scooter, example a delivery rider, you might want to look for an electric scooter that has large battery capacity. It enables you to carry out your delivery task without being afraid that your battery might go flat.
- Leisure - If you're looking for something just for fun, easy on your wallet, you could go for eMove Touring series or Xiaomi Mijia.
- Long-distance travel - Choose something with a bigger battery capacity (xx AH)
- Short-distance travel - Choose something small and light, it will be easy for you to carry around as well.
