Electric Scooter Shop is based in Devonport on the beautiful North Shore of Auckland, and is the place to come if you are looking to find the best range of e-scooters in the city. Get the freedom of mobility and reclaim your commuting time all in one, easy step. E-scooters don’t need any special skills or a license so nothing will stand in your way as you conquer mountains or change the way you get to work.
Why not keep one in the car boot, then you can park for free away from the CBD and scooter in the last mile to the office? Or take one on the bus or the train, and avoid a long walk at either end of the journey.
Electric Scooters are 'Last mile solutions'. They are convenient, affordable, and fun ways to get you around the city in record time. In the long term, owning your own scooter is cheaper and easier than renting a Lime Scooter. They are often more practical than an e-bike, and can be stored in small spaces, such as under the bed in an apartment.
An electric scooter will vary in size and power, from a lightweight 300 watt edition, like the Inokim Light 2 ideal for flatter terrain and lighter riders, to a beast of a thing like the Dualtron, producing over 1200 watts of power, and better suited to an off-road environment. Naturally a more powerful scooter will be bigger and heavier, as the batteries to supply the power need to increase in size, and the scooters themselves need to be stronger to handle the forces generated. It is vital to get good advice at the buying stage, to make sure the e-scooter you are considering is a good physical match for you, and is also capable of performing as you want it to.
In New Zealand, Lime Scooters have broken the ice for many people, and made scootering more socially acceptable. But is renting a Lime Scooter a better option? If you took a very occasional short trip in a central area on flattish terrain, we would say that you should continue to rent a Lime Scooter. But rental costs add up, and a Lime Scooter at $18/hr could quickly become an expensive habit! Plus, will you always have one when you need one? And if you have some decent hills to climb, forget it. They aren't built for that use. Better to invest in your own PEV (Personal Electric Vehicle), and have your transport and fun-machine on hand whenever you need it!
You will find our scooters are designed with different purposes in mind. For example, the Inokim Quick 3 provides a wide and stable platform, and is low geared for excellent climbing ability, even though it is 'only' 400 watts output, whereas the Light 2 is not as strong a climber, but has a very rigid and solid frame that locks out very firmly, and performs beautifully in less hill terrain and with lighter riders, so would be a better option for perhaps teenage kids riding to school, for example.
At the other end of the spectrum you will find scooters like the Dualtron MX, Inokim OX and Inokim OX O, which at the top end in the case of the OX O, put out over 2000 watts, and require serious respect from the rider. We don't recommend these for kids or teens, however if you are a full-grown and responsible adult and you have big hills to climb on your commute, or a long distance to travel, then they could well change your life!
Despite scooter regulations not requiring use of a helmet when scootering, we strongly recommend you use protective headgear, and we have a selection of helmets available in-store.

TVNZ came to see us, to talk about scooter use. (we were still called Think Electric Bikes at the time, but that's our owner, Jonno, in the white helmet, riding the Inokim OX)
