Electric scooters like the S2 Booster, also known as eScooters, are electric vehicles that resemble traditional bicycles or motorcycles in appearance. They usually have two wheels and are powered by an electric motor.
Electric scooters work much like traditional electric vehicles such as cars or motorcycles. The electric motor powers the wheels, and the rider controls the speed and direction with a throttle. The battery provides power to the motor, and it must be recharged regularly.
- Decide what type of electric scooter you want. There are two main types of electric scooters: stand-up and sit-down. Stand-up electric scooters are more like traditional bicycles, while sit-down electric scooters are more like motorcycles. - Consider the range of the electric scooter, which typically has a range of 10-25 miles on a single charge, but some models can go further. If you'll be using your electric scooter for commuting, you'll want to make sure it has a good range. - Think about the top speed of the eScooter. Most electric scooters have a top speed of around 15 mph, but some models can go much faster. If you'll be using your scooter on the open road, you'll want to make sure it can reach high speeds.
The electric motor is the part of the electric scooter that powers the wheels. It is typically rated in watts (W), and the higher the wattage, the more powerful the motor. We recommend min. 500 W for eScooters, to make sure you can go up steeper hills and start from a standstill on inclines without problems.
The range of an electric scooter is the maximum distance it can travel on a single charge. Most eScooters have a range of 10-25 miles, but some models can go further. Our E-TWOW S2 GT SL has a range of 25 miles.
It usually takes 4-6 hours to charge an electric scooter. Some models, like the E-TWOW S2 Booster, can be plugged into a standard wall outlet and will be fully charged in 3-4 hours.
Some electric scooters, like the S2 Booster, come with a climbing ability of 20˚. This means that the scooter can handle hills with a gradient of up to 20˚ without problems. In general, the higher the claiming ability, the better.
Most electric scooters have a top speed of around 15 mph, but some models can go much faster. The E-TWOW S2 GT SL, for example, has 21 mph as its top speed, which makes this little scooter agile and one of the fastest on the market.
The weight limit of an electric scooter is the maximum weight that the scooter can safely carry. Most electric scooters have a weight limit of around 120 kg, but some models can carry more. Also, keep in mind that the weight of the rider will affect the performance of the scooter.
Many eScooters have a combination of electronic and mechanical breaks. Also, electric scooters have a built-in kinetic energy recovery system called (KERS). It stores the energy released during braking, then re-uses the energy to accelerate. The E-TWOW S2 Booster is equipped with two-disc brakes, one in the front and one in the rear. The front brake is operated by a lever on the handlebar, and the rear brake is operated by a pedal. Both brakes are very effective and will bring the scooter to a stop quickly.

The good news is that you can legally ride an e-scooter on your own property! However, under UK law they are considered "powered transporters" which means they are illegal to use on pavements, cycle lanes and pedestrian areas etc. But because major cities like London and Manchester trying to improve public transportation they have introduced the eScooter rental trials. So, this new technology is currently in a gray area.
According to UK law, you must have the category Q entitlement to drive an eScooter.
