Electric scooters are a convenient, eco-friendly alternative form of transportation. Having one can help you skip the wait time of public transit and help you get around a lot faster than you would walking. Most electric scooters also take up less storage space than the vast majority of e-bike options out there, which is important to consider if you live in an apartment or on campus and don’t have a lot of storage space. Right now, Amazon has a selection of discounted Segway scooters available, with prices starting at just $150.
Looking for something that can handle long distances? Check out the Ninebot F65 KickScooter. It reaches speeds up to 18.6 mph and can travel up to 40.4 miles on a single charge. It has 10-inch tubeless tires, front and rear direction indicator lights and can handle up to 20% grade slopes. Plus, you can get a full charge in about five hours, so it’s a good option for commuters who may need to charge their device while they work. It’s discounted by $108 currently, bringing the price down to $792.
If you’re sticking to smaller distances, like traversing a college campus, riding through the park or shopping locally, the $350 Ninebot F25 may be a better option. At 39% off, it’s a cost-effective option for those who want an electric scooter, but don’t want to pay an arm and a leg. It can reach up to 15.5 mph and has a range of up to 12.4 miles per charge.
Or, for a happy medium, you can snag the Ninebot F40 for $600 — that’s a $200 discount. It reaches the same speed as the F65, but its range falls between the other two models, reaching a distance of up to 25 miles per charge.
Plus, if you’re shopping for kids, the Ninebot Electric KickScooter for Kids is a nice option, especially at 40% off. That cuts the cost from $250 down to $150. It has a smaller range of up to 6.2 miles and a lower speed, topping out at 10 mph, but it’s a good option to learn on. Note that the maximum load is 110 pounds on this one, so if you’re buying for a teenager, you’ll probably need to opt for an adult model.
