These are really cheap on groupon. With the 25% off voucher for first time users the one with the seat works out £42 and the one without is £35. Voucher is FIRST

​Different scooters on Groupon altogether, unlikely to get 1 hour or 12mph. These are on Halfords eBay too free shipping

Prob not as good but less then half the price, just giving poorer people a chance to partake.

I had an electric scooter about 10 years ago have they come a long way I park and cycle to work only about 15 minutes cycle and could charge one of these at work obviously it was rubbish years ago are they better now I have thought about getting something like this but will the belt break or the battery be rubbish after a few goes

" Poorer " people have better grammar THAN you.
Please get your coat, then leave.

Is that how you spent your time off from school - getting that crappy scooter to work?

Maximum rider weight 70kg? That probably rules out most of the population. Unless you just want to buy it for your kids.

I thought these were for kids? What sort of grown person would want to ride one of these?

Indeed. Although one guy did seem to be considering one for his commute! (I'd be OK being < 70kg )

Not a fan of them myself. Kids opposite my OH's place have one. Often see 2 or 3 of them trying to get on it at the same time. Wobbling along the pavement and inbetween parked cars. Just waiting for one of them to lose the thing and scrape it right down the side of someone's car. (Ideally not mine) They don't exactly look very stable ....

Thank you bought one for grandson

Just be aware that, technically, these are only legal to use on private property.
There are a whole raft of offences that you could be done for if you use them on the road or pavement.

​Luckily the Police are advised not to fine kids under 14 (this goes for cycling too).

Apart from the fossil fuels used to refine the ores, make the plastics and make & produce the electricity to charge the battery? Not to mention the heavy metals and non-biodegradability of the battery & most of the chassis.

Wildly erroneous, these will create a lot of toxic waste and not just CO2.

They likely mean when using the actual scooter, compared to a car/van/truck/bus/plane/motorbike/moped...etc...etc.

But if you wanna be pedantic about it, then ok. But a car for example will still create more toxic waste than the scooter to produce/run and scrap.
