Best Electric Scooter Black Friday Deals analysis
To start off the list of the electric scooter Black Friday deal potentials is the Inboard Glider. This is one of the leading electric scooters and although it isn’t being released until the first quarter of 2019, we are hoping to see a Black Friday discount on the presale. The scooter is power by a 750-watt hub motor, giving it excellent torque, climbing and speed capabilities. It also has regenerative braking, meaning that whenever you hit the brake it will put power back into the battery! The scooter has a very smart swappable battery system, that will extend the range of the scooter for almost as long as you like (depending on how many spare batteries you can carry!).
Inboard have designed this scooter to be able to connect to any network with its software. This opens up the doors to organizations that want to have a fleet of scooters available for rentals or for staff. This combined with an open API really makes it a cut edge scooter when it comes to technology. The design of the scooter also makes it look slick with a convenient foldable design. LED lights also ensure that the rider can be well spotted if riding the scooter at night time.
It is a fantastic scooter with cutting-edge technology so we believe it is still worth looking out for this Black Friday. However, be sure to check back on our website because we will be adding any information regarding potential sales.
Ninebot/Segway ES2 Kick Scooter
The Ninebot is one of the most popular electric scooters currently on the market. Ninebot’s ES2 is an improved version of their ES1. It is a fantastic electric scooter that can achieve remarkable distance with the upgraded battery pack, making it one of the best alternative means of green transportation for long distance commutes available on the market in 2018. The Scooter has a top speed of 25km per hour. Powered by a front wheel hub motor delivering 300-watt performance and a peak performance of 700-watt. With the extra battery pack, this can be furthered to an amazing 800-watts.
Three-speed modes can be adjusted through the Ninebot smartphone app that is available on the iOS and Android application markets. On a single charge and consistent conditions, the Ninebot can reach distances of up to 25 km (15.5 miles) which is fairly standard. However, with the battery upgrade, it can reach an incredible 45 km (28 miles) on a single charge! The regular battery will only take 3.5 hours to fully charge and the extended battery 7 hours. The scooter comes in a both black and silver and had LED lights that can change colors underneath the scooter. These are nice features to personalize your ride. As is almost essential for all electric scooters the Ninebot can be folded for easier transport.
We have price history of the Ninebot from September and it has seen a fair amount of fluctuation since then. In the last couple of months, there has been a 30% price increase on its initial listed price, as well as a sale that occurred of 15%. As can be seen, by the graph the price now sits relatively in-between its initial price and its highest price. The higher price just before Black Friday could indicate a potential discount on the Scooter for Black Friday 2018.
Swagtron Swagger 5
Improving significantly since their previous models, Swagtron has done well with the Swagger 5. This is a Scooter that is affordable, looks great and performs well. This scooter has a top speed of 29 km per hour with three different speed settings. On a single charge, the scooter can travel up to 18 km per hour (11 miles). However, if the scooter travels at its top speed the entire time then it can only get to 14 km (9 miles) on a charge. This is something to take into consideration as if you do not have a place to easily charge it then it may become hard to complete some journeys!
The 37V 4.4ah 158Wh Lithium-Ion battery takes just 3.5 hours to fully charge. One thing that is quite nice about the scooter is it is fairly lightweight, weighing in at 11.8kg (26 pounds). It can be connected to your smartphone through the Swagger 5 app, which allows the user to monitor the speed, track the distance traveled and switch between performance modes.
Since its initial release, which was just earlier this year, the price has dropped 10%. Therefore, it is hard for our team to fully assess whether the Scooter will receive a discount, but there is still a chance. As there has not been much movement in the price since it releases, it may be the perfect time for the scooter to receive its first big price discount in 2018.
GOTRAX GXL Commuting Electric Scooter
The Gotrax GXL scooter is a very high-quality scooter at a very reasonable price tag. Powered by a 250-watt hub motor allows this scooter to achieve speeds of up to 25 km per hour (15.5 miles). This is fairly good considering the scooter is lightweight weighing only 12kg (26.5 pounds).
There are also 2-speed modes to ensure maximum user performance. Built to be a good commuter scooter, it does just that with a 36-volt lithium ion battery giving it the capability to travel up to 20km (12.5 miles) on a single charge. The battery can also be fully charged in just 4-5 hours. 8.5-inch pneumatic air tires allow for a more stable ride and give it a few off-road abilities. However, it is mainly focused on being a good commuter scooter. Gotrax GXL does have an IP54 waterproof rating, which means it can withstand splashing water but not full submersion. Unfortunately, it does not have any smartphone app, which is offset by the relatively lower price tag compared to those that do.
The price tag has noticed some interesting fluctuations over the last year. It has twice seen the price rapidly increase and then decrease by the same amount. This could be a marketing tactic to make sales seem greater than they are. The price is, however, sitting at the same as it was when first released. Therefore, keep an eye out to see if there is a sudden increase in the price before a Black Friday deal on this electric Scooter.
Xiaomi Mi M365 Smart Electric Scooter
The Xiaomi is targeted as a greener alternative for people to travel short distances, and it achieves just that. Made from aircraft grade aluminum the scooter weighs just 12.5kg (25 pounds). It can also be folded away for easy transport and storage. Powered with an LG battery gives it the ability to travel up to 30 km on a single charge. It does although take around 5 to 5.5 hour to achieve a full charge. However, this comes at no sacrifice to its speed ability with a top speed of 25 km per hour (15.5 miles). Combined with 2-speed settings you could be darting all around town faster than you have ever before.
It is targeted towards people over the age of 16 and has a maximum weight of 100kg (220 pounds). We love the look of this scooter with its options in black or white and its slick design. As it is manufactured by a smartphone company, the scooter can be paired with an app. Speed management, battery status, ride history, and cruise control can all be managed on the application available on the iOS or Android markets. Therefore if you are in the market for a good all round scooter this may be just the one you are after.
The scooter has seen just one sale of approximately 14% since its initial release. However, what our team found most interesting was recent data collected. This showed that its price has increased by 20% in the last month. This is a common tactic for companies to do right before putting a product on sale. Therefore, we think the scooter could get a Black Friday discount in 2018. Do make a note of the price before the day though as the sale may not be as great as it seems.
TianRun Electric Scooter
The TianRun Electric scooter could be one to watch out for this Black Friday. The scooter is incredibly lightweight, weighing only 16 pounds. This is due to its carbon fiber structure, which also makes it very strong and durable. However, this comes at no significant sacrafice to performance. The 250-watt motor can allow the scooter to achieve a maximum speed of 15 miles per hour (depending on conditions). Three travel speeds and a maximum distance of approximately 8-15 miles also depending on conditions.
If you are after a scooter that is a bit cheaper than other competitors in the market than this one could be for you. We noticed that the scooter received a 10% discount last month and its price has since returned to normal. Therefore it could indicate that the Scooter could receive a Black Friday Discount this year in 2018.
The world we live in is changing. If you are after a greener and more sustainable mode of transport, then an electric scooter could be just for you. There are many options and now is a great time if you want a Black Friday discount on an electric scooter. We will be updating this page with any applicable information regarding potential sales and discounts for Black Friday.
