You've probably heard alot about electric scooters recently, they're increasing in popularity and people are starting to use them more and more.

But have you considered using an electric scooter for your daily commute to work?  Below are 4 reasons why you should consider using an electric scooter for your daily commute to work.

1. Portable

An electric scooter can be a great way to commute to work.  Not only are they easy to use but they can be very fun.  It will add an exciting period during a normal working day.

Most electric scooters can reach speeds of around 15 mph (25 km/h) which means is around 3x quicker than walking! It's around as quick as cycling but with the added benefit of being much less effort.

You can use an electric scooter to get to work in the same time as it would take to cycle, but you can stay feeling refreshed (and not tired and sweaty!)

Because electric scooters are lightweight and foldable, it means that once you get to work you can fold it up and store it away without it taking up too much space.  

One pain with cycling is that storing your bike can be inconvenient, but an electric scooter can overcome that issue.


2. Improved Health & Balance

It may sound like a very basic skill but balance is very important. There are many core muscles that contribute to overall good health and balance.

Modern day office work means that you may be sitting still in a chair for a large portion of the day.  This can be detrimental to your health as your muscles may atrophy after many months of this.

By using an electric scooter you begin your day by stimulating your muscles that are used for balance and mobility.  This will help to keep them sustained during normal working office hours since they've already had a workout.

This is because an electric scooter requires you to keep balanced as you use it.

This sounds easy but it can also give you the opportunity to build and develop you balance skills.

This will lead to improved balance and posture in other areas of your life.


3. Eco-friendly

Another very common way to commute to work is to drive. Although this is usually far quicker than using an electric scooter it far more damaging to the environment.

While using an electric scooter you are not emitting any harmful pollutants and contributing to global warming. All you need is to charge up the battery, however, there are more and more chargers coming onto the market that use renewable energy to generate electricity.

This can ensure that your daily commute is 100% environmental friendly!

It's satisfying to know that you can still be using a type of vehicle like an electric scooter yet you are doing your bit for the environment by reducing your carbon footprint.


4. Low effort

Cycling to work is a very popular way to commute but it has 1 downside, you actually have to cycle! If you enjoy cycling then this probably isn't an issue, but if you don't do alot of cycling then it may not be the best way to get to work.

The obvious benefit of using an electric scooter is that you don't really have to expend any energy. The motor in the scooter is able to power you along at a pretty decent speed, all by using the power of electricity!

At speeds of up to 55km/h you can zoom along at great speeds without having to power the vehicle yourself!  So not only is it quicker than using a bike but it requires very little effort!
