This is *almost* the ideal scooter for commuting. It's just about light enough (7kg) to carry on e.g. the train, and just about fast enough to be worthwhile. But it feels slow and underpowered, requiring a bit of pushing. The battery also seems to drain very quickly and requires a long time to charge.
The main problem is that the build quality is not quite there. Mine broke within a few days, somehow the steering locked to the left and won't budge. So unfortunately I had to get a refund, it's currently unusable.
Other things to note - Instructions provided in every European language except English. Makes initial set up and construction a bit trickier than it needs to be. - Plug is European so you'll need an adaptor if buying for the UK
An ok scooter, not nearly as fast as I expected, was a little tricky to open and fold but once you get the hang of it, it's ok. I contacted the sellers and they were very helpful with a video showing how to open and fold the scooter. Unfortunately the scooter was scratched and parts missing, which took them a while to sort out, so I am unable to use it safely until then.
Hi+Seat Electric Scooter The maximum speed offer of 25 km/h is a bluff (pure marketing) not even downhill will reach it, I have hardly only reach 21km/h in flat surfaces without the seat and my weight of 70kg. The tyres still have a lot to improve, they still too hard compare to inflatable ones, no “good cushioning” at all, should be more flexible. The mudguard at the back is not properly adjusted on the sides and vibrates with a lot of noise when on rough surfaces which gives a bad feeling. No UK adaptor or converter for EU plug, at such a price is the minimum should be supplied, it reduces the illusion to use it after receiving it as you have to go and search for it.
