The Maxtra E Scooter features polyurethane tires and an impressive 6-8 hour charge time which rivals other best electric scooter with seat contenders. The removable and height adjustable seat is a welcome addition too, especially for a growing child, and puts the Maxtra Electric Scooter in the running for best electric moped as well!

Why We Like It – Maxtra Electric Scooter

The Maxtra Electric Scooter features a 10-12 miles per hour top speed which is fantastic both because it’s fast enough to provide exhilaration and just slow enough to make it safe for kids. The fact that it meets EU safety regulations is also a bonus, and the UL2272 safety certification is very welcome as well.

Pros
  • Polyurethane Tires
  • 6-8 Hour Charge Time
  • High-Quality Construction
Cons
  • No Hill Rating
  • 6 Mile Range
  • Only Comes in Bright Pink

Performance

Maxtra Electric Scooters contain a top speed of about 10012 MPH, which is pretty much average, if not a little bit less, than other scooters in its class like the SKRT Electric Scooter. Unfortunately we couldn’t find any information on its ability to go up hills or through rugged terrain, but we did find some reviews that advise against it. Considering this is a scooter designed for kids, that’s understandable.

Safety

The Maxtra E120 Electric Scooter features CE certification and RoHS, meaning it has met EU consumer safety regulations, the first certification we’ve seen for a scooter like this. And if it’s good for the EU, you know it’s safe for American use as well. The scooter also sports 6” polyurethane tires that gives it great maneuverability and road gripping capabilities. If you’d prefer chunkier tires, consider the Razor Ecosmart Metro Electric Scooter.

Battery Life

The Maxtra Motorized Electric Scooter can’t go as far as other scooters, having a continuous use range of only about 6 miles after a full charge. But if you’re a parent I suppose this is a gift rather than a detriment. However, the charge time on the scooter is quite impressive, coming in at 6-8 hours which is, believe us, actually very good and perfect for overnight charging and is about the same as the Hiboy S2.

Durability

The max weight capacity on the Maxtra electric scooter is listed at 155 pounds though this can be pushed to 160 if need be. But make 160 the absolute maximum. The scooter is also made of durable, high quality alloy steel so it should be able to support any child within the weight range. We just wish the handlebars were also made of steel too! But I guess it’s easier to control when it’s aluminum.

Value

The scooter sports an impressive two year parts warranty which is more than any other scooter we’ve encountered thus far. The scooter itself is also height-adjustable so as your child grows their scooter can grow with them. Unfortunately, it also comes in one color, and that color is a bright pink which may deter some kids from wanting to get it.

Maxtra Electric Scooter Wrap Up

The biggest downfalls of the Maxtra Electric Scooter aren’t really downfalls if you’re buying this for your kid. Can only travel 6 miles? Where does a kid have to go that’s more than 6 miles away from their home? The only downfall would be that it comes in only a bright pink which may deter certain kids from wanting to ride it.
