Ninebot MAX G30LP 2020 Review & Overview
Welcome to our Ninebot MAX G30LP review for 2020; here we’ll discuss a number of specs, stats and features included in this great value for money electric scooter. For starters, this eScooter is a direct improvement from the previous model, covered in our Ninebot MAX G30 review. Incorporating a fully folding frame & ready for stowage within just 3 clicks, packing this scooter couldn’t be easier. Whilst weighing just 38.6 lbs (17.5 kg), the MAX G30LP supports weights of up to 220 lbs (100 kg), approx. 5.6 times its own weight. The spacious 7″ wide platform gives you plenty of room to stand on your exciting new eScooter, with front & rear LED lights helping you see and stay seen. As it stands, this fairly priced electric scooter makes an ideal solution to morning commutes; alongside a cost-effective travel solution.
Choose between 3 riding modes to suit your style, from Eco, Standard & Sports; each with varying levels of power and speed. Segway are always bringing out innovative electric travel methods, this eScooter also boasts regenerative braking. This regenerative braking converts kinetic brake energy into power for your battery, making the most out of your ride. This eScooter holds a huge number of fun & functional features, so let’s start our 2020 Ninebot MAX G30LP review with speed, power and distance.
Speed, Power & Distance
Powered by a 700W max output motor, we were pleasantly surprised by the performance offered. For starters, the Ninebot MAX G30LP can tackle inclines of up to 20 degrees, which is fairly impressive considering the price. Furthermore, this 700W motor propels this scooter to speeds of up to 18.6 mp/h (30 km/h) for up to 25 miles (40 km). Whilst certainly not the fastest electric scooter on the market, the performance offered is above average for the price range. Alongside this, the 3 different riding modes each offer differing levels of speed & power, with varying results in battery life. Riders can easily check the centrally situated display and check their speed, battery life and more; all at a quick glance.
How fast does the Ninebot MAX G30LP go?
Top speed of 18.6 mp/h (30 km/h). Riders can choose from 3 separate riding modes, each with varying levels of speed, power & battery life.
What age/weight is it suitable for?
Segway cite 14+ years old as the recommended age for riding this eScooter, with a maximum weight capacity of 220 lbs (100 kg). Furthermore, this e-Scooter best suits riders between the heights of 3′ 11″ to 6′ 6″.
What is the range/distance?
Approx. range of 25 miles (40 km). However, results may differ depending on riding mode, rider weight, terrain, etc.
Battery Life & Charging
Moving on to the battery life & charging section of our 2020 Ninebot Max G30LP review. Boasting a 10200 mAh Lithium-ion battery, Segway have incorporated a number of strategies to maximise safety. For starters, implementing a Smart Battery Management System protects against over-heating, short circuiting, over-charge and more. Continue reading our Ninebot MAX G30LP review for more information on battery protection and safety.
Alongside a BMS, regenerative braking is also utilised, resulting in kinetic braking energy converting into battery power; giving riders that extra bit of juice. Briefly bringing it back to the battery, comprised of 18,650 Lithium batteries to form a reliable and effective cell. Furthermore, this eScooter claims a pretty speedy charging time of just 6.5 hours from empty, which is shorter than average. This holds significance when considering the price, as many similarly priced competitors often require in excess of 8-12+ hours to fully charge.
How long does it take to charge?
Charges in just 6.5 hours, a fairly speedy charging time considering the price.
Battery protection & safety
The Ninebot MAX G30LP utilises a Smart Battery Management System; keeping this eScooter safe from over-voltage, over-heating, short circuiting, over-charging and over-current. This helps eliminate a huge potential for user error, as many riders may forget that they left their ride charging. Thanks to this, you never have to worry about overexerting your battery when charging (within reason, of course).
How long will the battery last for?
Much like most Lithium-ion batteries, an average lifespan of 500-1000 charge cycles comes expected. 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 2020 Ninebot MAX G30LP 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. The display is perfectly situated in the centre of the handlebars, allowing riders to easily check their battery life, speed and mileage. Alongside this, both the manual & electric brake are within easy reach of the handlebars; with comfortable & ergonomic rubber hand grips to hold on to. Furthermore, the 7″ wide platform offers riders a decent amount of space to stand comfortably.
Segway have kept the design consistent, with a simple yet sleek aesthetic and a low-key colour profile. The 10″ pneumatic tires aid in adding some suspension and shock absorption to your ride, with self-sealing & flat-free tires protecting against punctures and tears. Of course, the the frame of this eScooter is fully folding, allowing riders to easily pack, store and transport their travel companion. Front & rear electric disc brakes increase control and safety given to riders, which we discuss more on in our roadside safety section.
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 lights go dark.
Does it connect to your smartphone via app or Bluetooth?
Yes – riders can connect their eScooter to the smartphone app; displaying data on their ride whilst also allowing for varying levels of customisation. The Ninebot app is available on both iOS and Android.

Build quality and ease of use
As we all know, Segway are a world-renowned brand and one of, if not the first on the scene for electric travel alternatives. Therefore, it comes as no surprise that this cost-effective electric scooter also boasts a solid build with a surprising amount of features. The self-sealing, flat-free tires came as a surprise, considering that even many top-tier eScooters lack this feature. Furthermore, the regenerative braking and Smart Battery Management System really showcase the care and time invested into efficiency, safety and quality control.
To attest to this level of quality, the Ninebot MAX G30LP supports weights of up to 220 lbs (100 kg), over 5 times its own weight of 38.6 lbs (17.5 kg). Moving on to ease of use, we found it extremely easy and simple to ride, with everything conveniently located for easy access. Lastly, mobile app support & riding mode selection allow riders to craft a truly bespoke riding experience to suit their style; truly a remarkable ride for the price.
Safety and usability on the road
Whilst boasting 10″ pneumatic tires and tackles 20 degree inclines, the Ninebot Max G30LP best suits roadside use primarily; not suitable for off-road and tricky terrains. As such, Segway recommend riders stick to smooth surfaces such as roadsides, pavements, etc. Whilst this eScooter likely holds some level of off-road functionality, its clearly designed for conventional use on the road. Alongside this, the responsive front & rear dual brakes allow riders to make sharp, sudden & precise stops at a moments notice; especially important when riding on the road, where one mistake could spell doom. Furthermore, riders can easily utilise the front & rear LED lights, helping you stay seen whilst also maintaining visibility at night. However, we still recommend that riders wear adequate safety clothing, such as a high-visibility jacket, helmet, gloves, etc.
