It is a very commonly thought of question, which is better a gas powered or an electric powered scooter for your child. There are quite a few attributes that differentiate a gas and electric powered scooter. Both are good in their own way. Your requirements can also help you choose one in between the two classifications. In terms of cost, electric scooters win. When cost is mentioned it includes its initial cost, as well as further maintenance cost. In case of a gas scooter, there is much other expenditure involved. Hoses, tubes, carburettor wear down and the cost of gas itself. All of this together make the gas scooter a bit expensive.
If you consider the range of a scooter, gas scooters are more favourable. Electric scooters have very finite range. Electric engines are limited, a gas tank can be refilled and used for longer distances. Electric scooter requires recharging of your battery 4 to 5 hours. It is a lengthy process, this gas scooter is preferable for high range service. Weight is also an important consideration while selecting a scooter. If the scooter is too heavy for your child he or she will face difficulty in balancing it. Gas and electric scooters are very close to each other in terms of weight.
