General shopping guide

Powerful and fast, the USCOOTERS/e-TWOW Electric Booster Plus Scooter is great for commuting. Although a bit “heavy,” it zips along well for riders up to the maximum weight limit. A six-footer weighing 230 pounds (plus a backpack) travels about 10 to 14 miles on a single charge up to 16 mph. A 5’11”-tall rider weighing 200 pounds speeds up to 19 mph on straightaways.

Of course

Ranges and ride times can vary. One person reports reaching only 11 to 13 miles per change. Another says that the scooter drives reliably on flat terrain about 12 miles; going beyond that limit, the scooter slows down.

The good

What people agree on, though, is the USCOOTERS/e-TWOW Electric Booster Plus Scooter’s effective shock-absorbing suspension. It handles bad roads, rough urban streets, and bumpy surfaces well.

The (somewhat) bad

A less positive point of concurrence is brake performance. The front regenerative electric brake is okay except if you want to stop fast and on a dime. Not many riders actually use the rear friction brake, which we assume would only help. In any case, reviewers advise people to brake early, especially when going down a hill.

The ugly

Several users dislike the battery meter because it isn’t accurate and precise, but “all over the map.” One person finds that the meter’s measurement fluctuates (e.g., from 80% down to 20% in minutes and back up again) based on the ride’s strain on the battery. Another rider comments that after the scooter cruises fast for only one or two miles, the battery meter drops to 10%, which seems incorrect. On the other hand, a commuter travels five miles in stop-and-go traffic but arrives with the battery at 60%.

But at least

Owners like that the USCOOTERS/e-TWOW Electric Booster Plus Scooter is fairly easy to fold (be careful not to tear off the rubber power cord protector by mistake) and store at the destination or on public transit. A little heavy for some, the folded scooter can conveniently be rolled on its front wheel.

The automatic front light isn’t very bright but more “like a fog lamp.” Also, it always seems to be on, needing to be turned off manually.
