Emaxusa Electric Scooter Review
Here’s a no-nonsense scooter that won’t put a hole in your budgetby Tudor Rus, on
Not every electric scooter out there is about all-out performance. In fact, most commuters don’t need souped-up e-scooters to cover that last mile from the underground or bus station to their home, so this is where the Emaxusa e-scooter comes into play.
It’s definitely not the most tech-ladden, high-performance electric scooter on the market but it comes wrapped in a sleek, no-nonsense package destined for adult riders that want a particular dose of comfort first and foremost. Let’s find out more about the Emaxusa e-scooter.
Emaxusa Electric Scooter Design
The Emaxusa electric scooter can be had in two visual flavors: one’s the standard black and white trim, while the other mixes black and grey. Personally, we’d take the latter because it offers more versatility against stains and splashes, yet that’s not to say the former doesn’t look cool in its own way.
The scooter has a collapsible aluminum frame that allows you to fold the handlebar for storing or hauling purposes.
Maybe you need to hop on the bus or on the subway and folding the scooter makes those transitions a lot easier. The Emaxusa electric scooter is also fitted with an LCD display screen , LED lights in the front, hand-activated brakes and brake lights in the rear, so you can safely ride it during the night, too.
To start the scooter, all you need to do is step on the deck with one foot, slowly push the other foot off the ground, and use the right-hand accelerator to speed up. The e-scooter is also fitted with a cruise control feature of sorts, which can be activated three seconds after you’ve started rolling, by pressing the accelerator controller.

Emaxusa Electric Scooter Comfort and Practicality
Although it’s not fitted with a suspension setup like most high-end scooters out there, the Emaxusa e-scooter does offer 8.5-inch pneumatic tires. These should be enough to absorb most shocks and grant a comfortable ride, but they’re also high-maintenance in the sense that it’s easy to pierce an air-filled tire without even knowing it. Then again, it’s better than having to ride on airless tires with no suspension setup, which is bound to put more stress on your joints while traveling on rough ground.
Emaxusa says its e-scooter tips the scales at 26.7 pounds (12.1 kilograms), so carrying it around shouldn’t be a burden.
What’s more, the scooter can hold a maximum load of 264 pounds (120 kilograms), and measures 42 inches x 16.5 inches x 19.2 inches while folded, so storage shouldn’t be an issue even for those who own smaller cars with limited trunk space. When opened and ready to ride, the scooters measures 42 inches x 16.5 inches x 44.8 inches.
Emaxusa Electric Scooter Performance
As we mentioned above, the Emaxusa electric scooter is not your typical high-performance toy. Most of that is because it uses a single-drive setup based on a 300-watt brushless electric motor that can propel you to a top speed of 15.8 miles per hour (around 25 kilometers per hour). A 36-volt (6Ah) Lithium-polymer battery pack promises a maximum range of 16 miles (25 kilometers), but it can also aid the e-motor in climbing a hill incline of up to 16 percent - naturally, the battery will drain quicker while doing so. That’s why we recommend you to keep the Emaxusa e-scooter on flat ground for as long as possible in order to get the best out of its range capabilities.

Emaxusa says the scooter needs around five hours to fully charge its battery, while in the safety department, it has fitted the rig with front and rear brake setups as well as an e-ABS feature that works in a similar way to your car’s own ABS system, keeping the wheels from locking and, thus, limiting skidding during hard braking on a surface that’s more slippery than usual.
