    Just get the Evercross Electric scooter, on Amazon. No app required, Headlight, Brake Lights, Dual Braking, max speed of 33 kph max, 20 mile range, and 3-4 hours to charge. The Kick scooter is NOT worth it for $500+ dollars when the Evercross scooter at $400 does everything it does.

    Did he seriously say 5 hours for a full recharge on a 31mile e-scooter seems long? Has he ever used any e-scooters before? That seems way more than reasonable. The ever popular Xiaomi M365 took 5 hours and it has less range.

    I don't know why Niu would ask a racist like you to do a trashy review on their new kick scooter. Your review is not professional and fair, you only make comments like a racist. If you worry about the Chinese companies would steal information from you, check your home to see if there is anything made in China, throw them all away because we install cameras on everything we make. Are you someone really special that we need your information? To clone a racist like you? Niu is a big company which produce millions of scooter for respectful people but not you. Shame on you.

    With most electric scooters, you only need the app to unlock speeds, set cruise levels, etc. You don't need to use it every time. That said, my scooter (the Swagtron Swagger 5 Boost) doesn't have a feature in the app to lock it to prevent (or at least discourage) theft, and I REALLY wish it did. On mine, I managed to get creative with a Kryptonite lock at the fold point, with a chain wrapped around it multiple times, for locking it up.
    For heavier riders, beware the low weight limits on many electric scooters. On this one and most of them, the limit is 220 pounds. The Swagger's limit is 320 pounds , which is one of the highest I've found for a low price ($300) scooter.

    A few notes I have on this.
    1) Basically all the features he loves are already on Xiaomi/Ninebot scooters. Large mod communities and plentiful aftermarket and replacement parts.
    2) Dual brakes is an interesting feature, but not absolutely necessary.
    3) You can easily use a disk brake lock on this kinds of scooters, and wire style locking chains will go through the non-motor wheel with some fiddling (I would just stick to a disk-brake lock system)

    I've been using my Xiaomi M365 (now heavily modified to have front and rear suspension) for over a year and you shouldn't really need the app to use the scooter. It's probably there for additional telemetry and for turning on other features like cruise control. I connected the scooter once to the app to turn on cruise control, and that's it for me.

    This chinese company you’ve never heard of is actually one of the biggest manufacturers of electric scooters (real sized ones that you sit on) and you can barely go more than a mile in a european city without seeing one of their scooters.
