E-Scooters for College – Important Factors
- ✓ E-Scooter Range - the distance you need to go on your electric scooter as a student should play a vital part in your choice. Be sure to check how far you ride and the range specs of the scooter you’re interested in before purchasing. Most e-scooter ranges vary from 15 to 30 miles, and rider weight, climate and terrain can play a large factor.
- ✓ Campus Terrain & Hills - Some e-scooters have different wattage batteries than others and are therefore more accustomed to combating hills and climbs. If you’re on a hilly campus bear in mind your range will fall, so you’ll require a higher wattage and longer range to achieve the same distances.
- ✓ E-Scooter Weight - Especially for students, the most important thing about your electric scooter once you hit the no ride zones, are going to be portability. Taking your electric scooter into class, to avoid it being on the street or tied to a bike rack is essential. Having a scooter that’s light and easy to carry will help immensely on camps.
- ✓ Weather Resistance - Are you commuting to campus in the rain? If so, you’ll need to make sure to check your e-scooter is water resistant. While riding in the rain can be unsafe with less visibility, it’s hard to avoid for half the year in Northern colleges, or even FL summers. Check the IP rating of your e-scooter to make sure.
