We do not sell electric scooters. We believe they are a great, low-noise, zero-emissions form of transportation, and try to provide an unbiased source of information about them on the Web. We do sell Soneil battery chargers, which are ideal for electric scooters, being compact, lightweight, intelligent and affordable.

There is confusion around the term "scooter". Here we use it to mean the small electric devices that generally resemble a skateboard body with an upright handle that usually supports steering and other control functions. The older style scooters that are essentially a motorcycle with a step through body typified by the Piaggia Vespa popular in Europe, we have grouped with motorcycles. Scooters without an upright control handle, we have classified as skateboards. There are also some machines that are essentially what we consider scooters, but with a seat. These we have grouped with scooters on this page. There are also 3-wheel and 4-wheel personal mobility aids intended primarily for indoor use referred to as scooters, but we do not cover those here, as we consider them personal mobility aids. The term powerboard has come to encompass what we consider to be both scooters and skateboards. Electric scooter producers seem to appear and disappear more frequently than the producers of larger vehicles, probably because start-up costs are relatively low, but market penetration is difficult, especially in North America for such vehicles. Therefore, this page will probably be continuously out of date, no matter how often I update it. Any additions, corrections and contributions are always welcome.
