1. Did you know - most scooters aren't waterproof?

Many people buy electric scooters that aren't in fact waterproof. They are then horrified to discover their brand new purchase breaks as soon as it rains or they ride through the smallest puddle.

What's worse is brands such as Xiaomi will not replace a scooter that suffers water damage from a puddle or rain as it invalidates the warranty.

2. Some e- scooters can't go up hills

E-scooters need quite powerful motors to ride up hills and if you purchase one that has less than a 300 watt output you will probably find yourself getting off and walking every time you reach a hill - where's the fun in that?

If you purchase a scooter make sure it's 350 watt or more, because if you weigh more than 80 kilos you'll probably need a scooter with at least a 500 watt motor power (yes weight plays a big part in e-scooter hill-climbing).
