MegaWheels is a company that works on electric physics to manufacture Scooter Electrico. It is located in Shenzen, China. It is famous for manufacturing hoverboards, e-scooters, e-skateboards, and self-balancing scooters since 2014.
We were fascinated by MegaWheels, as few Chinese manufacturers step forward from their local market, which is excellent. Therefore, this company makes a big win in the foreign market by setting up warehouses in the US and EU.
Going too deep, this company was first known as JIALIKE. It is known as one of the leading manufacturers in the field of electronic products since 2005. JIALIKE produced many smart products such as Mp3 and Mp4 players, portable GPS devices, cell phones, tablets, Pcs, etc.
Today we will review their Scooter Electrico named MegaWheel S1, listed in the best budget Scooter Electrico of 2021.
The Megawheels S1 Scooter Electrico is consists of a powerful brushless battery of 250W. It is located at its front.
What is the top speed of this scooter?
It has a maximum speed of 23 km/h, which is equal to 14.3 miles/h. This speed is not much impressive but is more than enough for chill purpose, to ride in the neighborhood and the busy miles of a city.
We found trouble to reach its maximum speed during our test, which is claimed by its manufacturer, but it is not unusual because most of the Scooter Electrico show this. But still, it offers a very nice speed, which is enough.
Although its dim point is that its top speed drops intensely to 15 km/h( 9 miles/h ) and never go up from this when half of its battery is used
, But this is not its drawback because the price category in which it falls still shows the ever best performing Scooter Electrico.
For what age is it suitable?
It is suggested from the Megawheels that it is suitable for the age of 10+.
For what weight is it suitable?
The maximum weight of the rider should be under 90kg (198 lbs).
We asked one of our healthy friends during the test, who weights 85 kg, to ride on it. But on the heavyweight, it shows poor performance as the expected one. The acceleration of the e-scooter was very low. It hardly climbed small hills and was unable to reach 70% of its maximum speed.
For whom is it suitable?
Heavier adults do not have much entertainment. But this scooter is the best choice for the kids and lightweight adults.
If you are looking for a more powerful e-scooter, we recommend you for the Xiaomi Mi M365 Pro, a smart scooter.
What is its range?
MegaWheels S1 can travel from 0-8 km or 0-12 km (5 miles -7.5 miles) if charged fully. This number is so close to the numbers which we experienced mostly in e-scooters. Considering that most companies provide unreachable max speed and range, which is only attainable in perfect road conditions, half of the maximum speed is deemed top speed in all e-scooters.
In the first run of our test, we traveled 9 km (5.5 miles), on the way having some hills on it. We traveled 8 km (5 miles); the speed was almost at max. This speed is not wrong for lightweight riders and kids. And it is the best speed in this price range.
MegaWheels S1 Scooter Electrico Battery
MegaWheels advertises a 5.0Ah, 29.4V Lithium-ion battery. It took 3 hours to charge from 0-100%.
As expected, it is not the high battery within the lightweight electric scooters. However, there is nothing unique about its battery. Many of the mid-range e-scooters present in the market take the same time to recharge completely.
What about the protection & safety of the battery?
There is no safety information about the battery from the official manufacturer. However, from its exterior looks, it seems that the battery is sealed well inside the scooter. However, it is hard to tell whether it is a Scooter Electrico or not.
How long will its battery last?
The manufacturers do not inform that for how much charge cycles a battery will last. But mostly lithium-ion batteries show 500-1000 charge cycles. This charge number of charges process is the best lifespan of lithium-ion batteries.
Let’s assume that if you change your scooter each day, then the battery life should be 1.5 years to 3 years.
Remember this; the batteries used in electric transportation will degrade throughout the charge cycle.
For example, a new battery will perform much best compared to the battery, which is done with 500 charge cycles.
Design & Functional Design
Consider that the MegaWheels S1 is the best scooter in its price tag. It has a sleek look and is directly compared to the expensive higher-end model.
People always think that it is a standard kick scooter due to its sleek, smooth, and thin design, but this is the fact that it is an electric scooter.
As it is the cheapest Electrico Scooter for kids, it also comes in 5 colors, which are as follows:
The kids can easily choose their favorite color.
As the far functional design, this e-scooter has three handlebars of different heights. By this, children and adults can use it easily and adjust it to their size quickly. It has a rubber handlebar, which is quite comfortable for the riders. Its main feature is that it reduces the vibration of your hands during riding.
The one feature missing is that it does not have the HUD display on the handlebar, which most e-scooters have. It means you are unable to see the battery life or any riding information during your ride. However, the battery LED lights present are present on the base of the scooter.
MegaWheels S1 accessories and spare parts
They are supplying scooter electric with excellent quality. On the other hand, side MegaWheels offers a stock of accessories and spare parts for S1. s This is not limited to this model: they have a supply of accessories and spare parts for most models. If you are looking for the handlebars, brakes, tubing, light wheels, throttles, and much more, then feel free to browse as these are readily available. You can easily replace the spare parts for your amazing MegaWheels S1 reliably and efficiently from the manufacturer’s end. As many riders consider that if sometimes, they need spare parts, then those should be genuine. If you purchase this e-scooter, you can quickly repair and upgrade the accessories & spare parts of S1 from the official website of MegaWheels.
Which type of material is used in its preparation?
The MegaWheels S1 is made from plastic and high-quality aluminum. The main body is entirely made of aluminum, with acceleration, brake pedals, handlebars, and few other cosmetics parts. Unfortunately, the plastic handlebars and pedals create a cheaper feel as compared to the other e-scooters.
A user must say thanks to the manufacturer for manufacturing it as lightweight S1. Its total weight is 8 kg (18 lbs) with the help of a light battery. Its 5.5-inch tires make me feel amazingly during a ride on a smooth surface because it is made from solid rubber. These tires are thick enough to help avoid slipping on a sharpy turn.
Can you use it as your regular scooter?
Undeniably, If the battery runs out of juice, feel free to use it as a regular kick-scooter deprived of any problems.
Does it connect to your smartphone via app or Bluetooth?
As an excellent scooter electrico, it does not include Bluetooth connectivity for your phone. Furthermore, so far, MegaWheels do not have a smartphone application for their e-scooter monitoring and controlling.
Besides this, MegaWheels do not offer any smartphone application to monitor and control their e-scoters.
This scooter has the best-built quality as it has an aluminum body, which does not require a large number of assembling it; only a few screwing is present on its handle. So, feel free to have beautiful rides on it as it will not lose its parts, which disturb your ride.
The MegaWheels S1 comes with the best and the clean mechanism. If you pull the lock upwards, you can fold the scooter in just a few seconds. Let’s give a clap to its manufacturer who makes such an scooter electrico with such a lock mechanism.
The unfolded MegaWheels S1 have dimensions of 90 x 29 x 98 cm (35.5 x 11.5 x 38.5 inches) and folded one have dimensions of 83 x 29 x 42 cm (32.5 x 11.5 x 16.5 inches).The weight is much less with the compressed folding, and it is listed in the lightweight scooters electrico. In the last mile, commuters have a big problem of folding the scooter to move forward for their next destination. We recommend that for last-mile commuters S1 will be a great choice.
Whereas the other electric scooters in the market are much smart and hard to use, but this is not the smartest one, but it is straightforward to use it. It makes no difference whether the rider is an adult or a kid. They power up the e-scooter from the side; at first, it needs a kick to start the first meter, and then press the pedal and start your fantastic ride.
The S1 comes with two types of brakes as follows:
- It is a breaking pedal on the handlebar.
- Manual footbrake
By using both of the brakes simultaneously help you to stop your scooter immediately.
Also, take care when applying the front electric brake because braking suddenly causes you to flip over if you are not prepared for it.
While riding this scooter at night time is problematic because it does not come with front LED light. We do not recommend you to go outside without any extra light to make visibility proper at night.
Usually, the Mega wheels electrico scooters are the best option for children to use in the neighborhood or for adults passing the city’s last mile.
We would not recommend the MegaWheels S1 if you live in such a location with steep hills. Its 20- degree angle climb is marketed, but, in our test, it is just suitable for the 15-degree t climb. Despite this, if you are an adult with an average weight, then even a 15-degree angle will be a struggle for the scooter.
Is MegaWheels S1 is a waterproof electric scooter?
Like the other scooter electrico, MegaWheels is not the exception, and it is not entirely waterproof. This S1 comes with a water rating of IP 54, which means that it is protected from each direction’s splashing. It is suitable for many environments. But do not drive it in extreme rain to protect your scooter.
Does it come with cruise control?
It does not include smart features such as cruise control.
It has no different from many other electric scooters. The S1 is unable to make sharp turns. By the way, its thick anti-slip rubber tires provide you more protection compared to the slimness of an average budget electric scooter.
As well as selling it in China, MegaWheels have warehouses in the United States. It is available in all states to expect Alaska, Hawaii Islands, and Affiliated Islands.
MegaWheels Europe warehouses distribute to Germany, France, United Kingdom, Italy, Spain, Luxembourg, Austria, Belgium, Netherlands, Czech Republic, Hungary, Slovakia, Poland, and Denmark. As often, make sure to be up-to-date with your country, state, and city laws on electric scooter practice on main roads and asphalt.
