Segway Ninebot E22 vs E22E Kickscooter Review Introduction
Welcome to our Segway Ninebot E22 kickscooter review for 2021; here we’ll discuss a number of specs, stats and features included in this great value electric scooter. For starters, this bad boy makes the best choice for any on a budget. Offering a substantial amount of high-spec features at such an affordable price has certainly become a rarity these days. However, we find it no surprise that world-renowned Segway have pulled through with yet another budget super-scooter.
Whilst also fully mobile app supported, this lightweight & fully folding electric scooter further features an integrated bell, LED lights, dual braking and much more. Alongside this, we also discuss the Ninebot E22 vs E22E in a comparison section below. Learn more about this remarkable ride in rest of our 2021 Segway Ninebot E22 Kickscooter review; starting with speed, power and distance.
Segway Ninebot E22 vs E22E Kickscooter Specifications
Drawing first blood for our 2021 Ninebot E22 Kickscooter review, the speed, power & distance offered is fairly surprising, considering cost. With a nominal output of just 300W, we were blown away by the 12.4 mp/h top speed and 13.7 mile range. Of course, relatively speaking many eScooters on the market outperform this; however very few that sell for the same price match this performance. Furthermore, the brushless motor propels riders to these speeds in near silence, truly a great way to get around. Should you need to alert anyone of your presence, simply use the integrated bell.
What’s even more impressive about this low-cost budget eScooter is the climb rating of 15 degrees. Riders can now tackle these inclines with ease, thanks to the terrific torque offered by the motor hub. Alongside this, riders can quickly change between 3 riding modes: Cruise control, Normal mode & Sports mode; each with varying levels of speed & power. Riders can easily check the centrally situated display and check their speed, battery life and more; all at a quick glance. Lastly, please note that variables such as rider weight, terrain, incline, etc. will impact overall performance.
How fast does the Segway Ninebot E22 Kickscooter go?
Choose from 3 separate riding modes, each with varying levels of speed, power & battery life.
Cruise control: 9.3 mp/h speed, 13.6 mile range
Normal mode: 12.4 mp/h speed, unspecified range
Sports mode: Unspecified
What age/weight is it suitable for?
Segway cite 14-60 years old as the recommended age for riding this eScooter, with a minimum 55 lbs (30 kg)/maximum weight capacity of 220 lbs (100 kg). Furthermore, this e-Scooter best suits riders between the heights of 3′ 11″ to 6′ 6″ (120-200 cm). This recommended age/weight remains the same for both the E22 vs E22E.
What is the range/distance?
Approx. range of 13.7 miles (22 km). However, results may differ depending on riding mode, rider weight, terrain, etc. Riders can also purchase an additional external battery for extended mileage and even speed. Average range also remains the same for both the E22 vs E22E.
Battery Life & Charging
Next up on our 2021 Segway Ninebot E22 Kickscooter review, battery life & charging. As we all know, batteries become better and better every day; long gone are the times where batteries would blow up and catch fire. In fact, Segway have incorporated a huge number of testing & safety features to avoid this. Such safety features include a Smart Battery Management System, protecting against over-heating, short circuiting, over-charge and more.
Alongside integrating a SBMS, this budget electric scooter also boasts an impressive charging time of just 3.5 hours from empty. As mentioned below, many similarly priced competitors often require charging times in excess of 6-12+ hours. Albeit with relatively limited range, for Segway to pull through with such a fast charging eScooter at this price is awesome.
The type of battery used is unspecified, however it boasts a nominal capacity of 5100 mAh. Furthermore, riders can also opt in for an additional external battery pack, extending your battery life, range, ride time and even speed. Continue reading our Segway Ninebot E22 Kickscooter review for more information on battery protection/safety and charge time below.
How long does it take to charge?
Charges in just 3.5 hours, a rapid charging time, especially when considering the price. Typically, many budget electric scooters take approx. 6-12+ hours of charging time; even those offering similar ranges. Please note, we were unable to find evidence of any charge time differences between the E22 vs E22E.
Battery protection & safety
The Segway Ninebot E22 Kickscooter utilises a Smart Battery Management System; protecting this eScooter from over-voltage, over-heating, short circuiting, over-charging and over-current. This helps eliminate a huge potential for any battery failure or user error, as many riders may forget that they left it charging. Thanks to this, you never have to worry about your battery blowing up in your face after a long charge. Learn more about Battery Management Systems here.
How long will the battery last for?
Whilst the exact type of cells used are unspecified, it’s more than likely to be Lithium-ion. However, we still recommend double checking with the supplier should you wish to confirm this. The average Lithium-ion battery claims a lifespan of 500-1000 charge cycles.
Therefore, total daily usage impacts the lifespan drastically. For example, commuters may have to charge 1-2 times a day, whereas a casual enthusiast may charge once a week. However, for some perspective, even if you were to charge this once every day, it would still take 2-3+ years to reach this point.
Design and Ergonomics
Moving on to the design & ergonomics section of our 2021 Segway Ninebot E22 Kickscooter review. As we all know, Segway became known through innovative design choices; pioneering many concepts and industry standards. As such, this electric scooter is no different. Much like many of their models, the display is conveniently situated in the centre of the handlebars.
This in turn allows riders to quickly and easily monitor their speed, mileage, battery life & more. The handlebars are ergonomic, grippy & comfortable, with a spacious deck to stand on. Riders can also utilise cruise control to give their wrist a rest on long journeys.
9″ dual density tires soak up harsh hits with some decent shock absorption. These tires also boast a patented anti-skid & tubeless/puncture-proof design. As expected, the Segway Ninebot E22 features a fully folding frame and retains a light weight; making it easy to transport, pack and store. Whilst weighing just 28 lbs, this budget eScooter supports weights of up to 220 lbs (100 kg), approx 7.8 times its own weight.
Much like most of their electric scooters, Segway have kept the design consistent, with a simple yet sleek & low profile colour scheme. Front & rear electric disc brakes increase control and safety given to riders; discussed more below, in our roadside safety section.
Segway Ninebot E22 vs E22e
Whilst the Segway Ninebot E22 seems to offer satisfactory performance, a so-called upgraded version is also available. This upgrade comes in the form of the Ninebot E22e, however both of these models are remarkably similar. From what we’ve seen, the only difference regarding Ninebot E22 vs E22e is regenerative braking; featured on the E22e, kinetic energy generated from braking is converted back into battery power.
Furthermore, the Segway Ninebot E22e has a slightly improved model, with another reflective strip and rear brake light added. However, other than this, their speed, weight, range, motor size and more are the exact same. Therefore, we conclude that whilst costing a little more, a selection of design choices & regenerative braking are all that sets these models apart. Whether this difference is worth the money remains up to you!
What material is it made from?
Can it be used as a regular scooter?
As we found no mention of any auto-locking once out of battery, we believe yes; riders should have no problem lending a leg once the battery dies!
Does it connect to your smartphone via app or Bluetooth?
Yes – riders can easily link their eScooter to the smartphone app; displaying data on their ride whilst also allowing for varying levels of customisation. The Segway Ninebot app is available on both iOS and Android.
Segway Ninebot E22 Kickscooter spare parts & accessories
Segway also offer a variety of spare parts and replacements for all manner of models. These spare Segway parts are a great way to repair or enhance your model; browse electric brakes, rear wheels, handlebar grips and much more.
Segway were one of, if not the first on the scene for hoverboards and other electric travel alternatives; paving the way for many models we see today. As a long established & world-renowned brand, its no surprise that Segway consistently deliver quality rides at fair prices. Solidly built, packed full of features and a high emphasis on design & quality control; many of which we weren’t expecting for such a low-cost, budget electric scooter.
For starters, the patented dual density tires offer a great deal of benefits, from shock absorption to anti-skid and puncture proof properties. The 3 riding modes are also a great addition, allowing riders to match their style or take it easy with cruise control. Riders can even purchase an additional external battery to extend their range, speed and more.
The previously mentioned Smart Battery Management System also offers a great deal of functionality and is a feature not often seen on cost-effective eScooters of this price range. Again, to attest to build quality, the Segway Ninebot E22 supports over 7 times its own weight of 28 lbs, very impressive indeed. On the topic of ease of use, this eScooter doesn’t get much easier.
Simply step on it and go, everything from the display & brakes to lights are conveniently situated for easy access. The entire design of this epic budget eScooter showcase the care and time Segway have invested into efficiency, safety and quality control. Lastly, mobile app support & riding mode selection allow riders to amplify their riding experience; truly a remarkable ride for the price.
Safety and usability on the road
Whilst boasting 9″ pneumatic tires and tackles 15 degree inclines, the Segway Ninebot E22 Kickscooter certainly suits roadside use primarily; not suitable for off-road and tricky terrains. Of course, you probably can still ride on said terrains, albeit with greatly reduced performance and control.
As such, Segway recommend riders stick to smooth surfaces such as roadsides, pavements, etc; clearly designed for conventional use on the road. Furthermore, thanks to the effective dual braking system, riders can make sharp, sudden stops quickly & easily.
This budget beast of an eScooter boasts a stopping distance as low as 4 metres; especially important when riding on the road with other traffic. Alongside this, the 9″ dual density tires also offer a patented anti-skid/puncture-proof design to help you keep control and carry on moving.
Alert clueless pedestrians and other traffic on the road with the integrated bell. Riders can also easily utilise the front & rear LED lights, maintaining visibility at night whilst also helping you stay seen. However, we still insist that riders wear adequate safety clothing, such as a high-visibility jacket, helmet, gloves, etc. when riding at night.
Segway Ninebot E22 Kickscooter waterproof rating
The Segway Ninebot E22 Kickscooter claims a water resistance rating of IPX4, offering protection from low pressure water blasts. As far as we know, both the E22 vs E22E claim the same waterproof rating. Learn about IP ratings here.
Restrictions and availability
From what we have gathered, Segway ship the Segway Ninebot E22 Kickscooter worldwide, to all major continents and countries; with obvious exceptions for certain territories. However, we still recommend riders to double check local laws and regulations, ensuring their region allows for such electric travel alternatives and motor sizes.
