    Owned for 5 days. decided to try regardless of negative reviews. Read manual twice and followed instructions carefully (didnt think other reviews were trustworthy). First day all is fine. Home to train to work, recharge and reverse. Recharged before bed and unplugged as soon as full. Day two(4th day of ownership). Ride to auto parts store less than a mile away. On way home scooter just stopped. Too heavy at 22 lbs to ride like a regular scooter so I walked it home. Was able to get it on at home and battery 75ish % full charge for a hour and tested it around the block for 1.5 miles, all okay... Day 5, woke up took scooter to train. Less than 1mile away. Died right as I got to train. Of train and to work, scooter stared but sputter on/off after 50feet. Walked to work and arrived late (riding like a regular scooter takes more energy than walking). After sputtering scooter turned off completely. After walking to work, plugged in scooter and had no response from scooter for over 3 hour (or manufacturer). Unplugged and it turned on. Kept close eye on it for next 5 hours Leaving work, fully charged. Turn it on. Kick off and it's turns off..... Walking to make my train I try every 15 minutes for it to turn on. @30min mark it does wtb a completely dead battery. Garbage. Facts; 180 lbs adult including heltmet and backpack and jacket. Live 1 mile from train. Work 1.5 miles from train (2.5 total commute) No steep hills. Maybe 5% max. No bumps or gaps, smooth even bike path entire way. Came scratched up. Looked used but carefully aligned tamper proof seals. Odometer reading 0 so though nothing of it. I would of been happy with 1/3 of what this thing said it could do.... I just didn't want to break a sweat getting to work. But that is asking for too much with this product.

    First off let me manage your expectations with this product no it will not get 6.8 miles on one charge unless your weight is low and you keep it on 1 (max 3 mph) possibly 2 (max 9 mph) also the road needs to be flat and smooth. I live in tempe AZ 1.8-1.9 miles from ASU tempe campus slight hill going to campus 24 male 160-170 pounds 6'1, bought it well for cruising campus and getting to campus. When i ride it going to campus i keep it on two and sometimes switch to 3 but mainly stay on two which for comparison is someone riding a bike normally not standing and pedaling hard. as soon as i start it the full battery goes down to three bars left but fluctuates when i stop it magically gains a bar. I make it to campus lock it up then ride back on the ride back about half way it drops to about 2 bars so for me i get roughly 3 miles out of it with a little to spare. Not bad for the price but no it is not like a bird scooter if you want guaranteed miles and power you are looking at $400-$500 easily the segway and Xiaomi are the ones bird uses Xiaomi is the newer model ones they use now 2018. but again $400-$500 or more as of writing this online retailers are about $430 minimum for a good one. SO if you want miles then no this is not the product but if you want abut 3.3 miles on speed setting 2/3 then this is for you though you will need the charger for anymore but again this is variable based on weight and terrain. Also the wheels are not air cushioned so you will feel every bump in your feet.

    First thing I have to say is the Hover-1 electric scooter was much easier learn to ride than when I first got my hoverboard...all you have to do is jump on and go with minimal worry of balance issues. Smooth surfaces are always best but I've had no problems going over smaller curbs, sidewalk cracks, and the ever so un-fun “invisible” mini-pebbles that would have launched me off my hoverboard on ANY surface. The only thing I can complain about might not be the scooter’s issue as much as mine as I am at the top end of the weight restrictions. I did feel like it could probably go faster but for putting around the neighborhood and going to local shops, it’s working out great. I haven't tried going farther than a few miles at a time on a charge but for my short little adventures, its a lot better than jumping in the car just to grab something quick from the stores that are close enough to walk to but way more fun to scoot to! Lastly, although I love the fact it’s electric (for the obvious reasons: lack of noise, no need to deal with gassing up, etc...) what I reeeally love is the real world applications that trump my hoverboard every time when it comes to dealing with intersections and traffic! So far so good!

    I bought this scooter hoping that it will perform at list 30% of what it says on the box , ok first day i charged it and i took it of a spin and only made like 0.2 mile and it started to drop in power so hard that i had to kick it my self all the time just to make it move, a slightest incline like 1 degrees and it stops , i wrote to support they told me to discharge and charge battery again , i did it , same thing battery drops after like 20 sec and you have to push it , and i don't live in a rocky mountains im talking about Manhattan flat ground , long story short i returned it next day and got the swager , hope it will be a little bit better

    Does not run well up the slightest hill it only got up to 6 miles an hour on the indicator. I daughters Razor leaves me on an incline and I paid half the price for hers. But flat surface it gets up pretty well. The battery drains really bad up a hill also the indicator will lose bars real quick. I like the design but man the torque needs to be improved. Especially when a less expensive one is a lot stronger . I might return it after I take a longer trip to see if the battery will hold up to what it say. I only went a little over a quarter mile.

    This scooter is a blast. After taking it out of the box it is pretty much ready to use, and it is easy to pick up on the skills required for riding it. It has good speed (around 14 mph) and good battery life. However, the battery life depends on your size; the heavier you are the shorter it is going to last.

    I picked up this scooter on a whim one day when I was wandering around the store. I took it home charged it up and everything ran great! I love how there is a display that tells speed, battery, distance, etc.. However I do wish it had a little more power, especially for the price. But, overall is does what it is designed to do and has a few bells and whistles to go along with it.

    We bought this as a gift for a 6 year old and he loves it! All we had to was charge it and then he hopped right on and was cruising around the neighborhood. After seeing him on it, all the neighborhood kids (and adults) wanted to try it and they loved it too. So fun!

    This scooters a little underpowered wish it was faster, does have some nice features to it love the headlight. I already burned up the motor going downhill hill using the regen feature. I ended up returning it after a month. Going to try the Segway scooter hopefully it's better.

    I purchased this item for myself, used it for 2 days roughly a 4 block radius each time and could not return home because it died. I exchanged the product and had the same issue, eneded up getting a refund.

    Got this for my 5 year old Grandson and he love's it. Didn't take him long to figure it out. He is all over playing with the kids. I think he thanked me about 7 times for getting it for him. As long as he is happy

    Pretty good gift for my 10-year-old, however the teenagers like it as well. It’s a pretty fast scooter on level III and the headlight on the front is very bright. This was a great purchase!

    Seemed like it was a well built product but the LCD screen was broken upon opening. Beware there seems to be two models with the same sku.
