E-scooter recommendation

Recommended Posts

Hey guys

Can someone recommend a not so pricey scooter that my GF can ride together with her 6 year old son, doesnt have to be super fast, but not very slow and hopefully give no less than 20 miles on a charge. Their combined weight is about 75kg. I imagine the board should be wide /long enough so they both can stand on it, one behind the other?  something maybe more towards entry level but still able to reach some mid range parameters. Doesnt have to be too strong of a motor i imagine and not looking for fast acceleration either. 

The idea is that they can somehow catch up with me at least partially when im riding my EUC.

Thanks!

If you are wanting value for money, look at the King Song N1-B...

Bigger / better than a "lime" style scooter, but not over the top. I think KS have them priced really well to get them into this market, but it still has their name to back it.

For Segway ES2 ES1 ES3 or Xiaomi Mijia M365 (not only thiese brands) there are accessories to add handles on the handlebar for a child to hold them

Here's my Amazon review for a NanRobot D5+

This is a copy of the review I posted on Amazon where I purchased my scoot.  A NanRobot D5+

 

Glad a month of research led me to this scoot. I must have watched every You Tube video on e-scoots. There must be 100 of them. I did have a week of using a 36V UberScoot and wasn't impressed. The experience did give me an idea of what I really wanted in an e-scoot, though. I did not want a chain drive. I did not want lead acid batteries. Advantages of the D5+ follow: 1. 52V 26ah Li battery is one of the most powerful offered by anyone. 2. The braking system is incredible. I liken it to ABS. They call it EBS. It does take some getting used to and I warn anyone who wants to test ride my scoot "be careful of the brakes. you'll think they are going to throw you over the handlebars, but they will not". There is an adjustment that give you 3 different options of braking power. I left it on the default setting of 2. It took about a month of riding to break them in. I really don't understand how NanRobot gets mechanical brakes to respond like ABS. They just work. 3. The 2 x 1000 watt motors provide me with all the power and speed I'll ever use. I live in a hilly area where some of the streets have 25° inclines. It took about a week of riding to get the hang of power vs battery life to kinda understand what power settings to use. I ride in speed mode 2 which maxes at 22 mph. And I keep DUAL on all the time. This means that both motors are used all the time. Some times on a steep hill I switch to TURBO but for the most part the D5+ maintains 22 mph. I don't know what top speed is-I don't care.
4. I find the build quality and finish very good. There is some play in the steering column but I think it's because of the folding mechanism and I think all foldables will have this. 5. The seat! I did put a wood plug in the seat post to keep the seat from sometimes slipping down. I didn't want to have to tighten the clamp with such force that I'd need a tool to loosen. Also I wish there was no 1" of spring travel when you sit down but I've gotten used to it. 6. The Throttle and Controller. The instruction manual does not go into great detail on the use. I found a manual for the Dualtron II on You Tube which did a good job and it's the same controller. I think the D5+ has a cutoff of 43V to protect the battery. There is no warning when you're getting close to cutoff. The scoot just stops. I recharge when I get 2 bars of battery left. I have no idea about range. It's going to vary because of terrain and what mode you choose. I really am glad I chose the D5+ over an e-bike. It does all I want and for 1/2 the cost. 7. After purchase service: Very responsive !! I asked to purchase 2 of the plastic ( should be $1 each) seat post spacers and they sent an entire seat, post and mounting bracket. This is $150 item. I felt guilty. Thought maybe they misunderstood my request. I offered to return it to California at my expense. "Nope". Another thing which I was not aware of: Because I used my Amazon Prime card to purchase the D5+ I got a 5% credit back! Also some have complained about some bolts not tightened. All the controls on the handlebars were shipped loose. This is because they didn't want any strain on the wire. They needed repositioning anyway. Tightening is easy and should be part of any purchase. I'm very happy with my purchase and the supplier (
yume smart ) has been very responsive to the point of overkill. Really incredible service. Thank you NanRobot.

l'm going to recommend the TNE Q4-V3 Plus ...comes in 2 options ...52V 1300W single motor or 48V 1000W single motor ...probably fitted with TUBELESS tyres/wheels too ...very cheap if you shop around ...a lot of mid-range scooter (sample) for small money on alibaba ...10 inch wheels !!
