Why you shouldn't just buy the cheapest e-scooter or e-bike you can find!

As the popularity of electric scooters and electric bikes continues to grow, it's important to be aware of the potential risks associated with purchasing non-certified, non-branded models. While these uncertified vehicles may seem like a cheaper and more accessible option, the long-term costs and risks may not be worth the initial savings.

Here are some reasons why it's important to buy certified electric scooters and electric bikes over unrecognised non-branded models:

  1. Safety: Certified electric scooters and electric bikes undergo rigorous testing and must meet safety standards before they can be sold. This means that certified vehicles are more likely to have safety features such as reliable brakes, durable frames, and bright lights to ensure visibility at night. Non-certified vehicles may not have undergone the same safety testing, and may have poorly constructed components that could fail, leading to accidents or injury.

  2. Warranty and Support: Certified electric scooters and electric bikes come with warranties and support from the manufacturer. This means that if something goes wrong with your vehicle, you can easily get it fixed or replaced under warranty. Non-branded models may not have any warranty or support options, meaning you'll have to pay out of pocket to repair or replace it if something goes wrong.

  3. Quality: Certified electric scooters and electric bikes are designed and manufactured to meet high quality standards, ensuring a better overall experience for the rider. They often have more powerful motors, longer-lasting batteries, and higher-quality components than non-branded models, providing a smoother and more enjoyable ride.

  4. Compliance: Electric scooters and electric bikes need to be compliant with product safety regulations. Non-branded models may not meet these requirements, putting you at risk of injury or worse.

  5. Eco-Friendliness: Finally, certified electric scooters and electric bikes are often more environmentally friendly than non-branded models. They use more efficient motors and batteries, reducing carbon emissions and pollution. Additionally, certified manufacturers often use eco-friendly materials and manufacturing processes, further reducing their impact on the environment.

In conclusion, while uncertified non-branded electric scooters and electric bikes may seem like a cheap and easy option, the risks and long-term costs may not be worth the initial savings. It's important to invest in a certified vehicle that meets safety standards, comes with a warranty, and is compliant product safety regulations. Not only will this provide a better overall experience, but it will also ensure that you're riding safely and sustainably.

At Beyond PEV we supply products that not only meet our strict quality standards but, have been thoroughly tested and certified as compliant.

Beware of cheap deals from relatively young companies, marketplaces such as eBay and from Facebook sellers that are unbranded, cloned, or whereby the seller cannot supply on demand a ‘Certificate of Compliance’. These products could be unsafe and in most cases will not come with a backed up warranty to support you if it was needed. Look for a retailer that only supplies quality known brands that have been tested and approved.

We only stock the worlds best brands, with a minimum of 1 year Warranty! We will never settle for anything other than quality ✌️
