Electric scooters are special “squatting” motorcycles with a step-through frame and desk for personal commuting without sacrificing ergonomics, maneuverability, energy economization, and compactness.
However, compactness and ergonomics are astonishingly elated in scooters with a foldable feature. Folding scooters are great as they come with renewable battery, stability, seat, luggage position (optional), and, of course, the ability to fold.
Moving around unrestrained, stress-free, endless fun, time-saving, durability, energy-efficient, and many more are advantages that you will enjoy from a good foldable scooter, that only if you do your “foldable scooter” choice well.
However, I have done the assessment over a few folding electric scooters, observed them through a traveler’s point of view. Finally, I am glad to give a comprehensive review of the five best folding electric scooters that you can easily take on a trip:
This is the first kick scooter that is lightweight and achieves durability from the high-quality aluminum from which it’s made. This foldable commuter glides effortlessly while bearing a maximum human body weight of 265 Ibs (120 kg) on the urban and suburban pavement on its 9.1″ front wheel and 8.1″ rear wheel (both made from PU for shake absorption).
The retractable handle with ergonomic foams pads along with the slip resistance lowered aluminum desk and splash shield makes riding fun for different people’ body dimensions (unisex teen, adult) and varying weather conditions.

- 2 years warranty and 100% refund for 60 days usage detectable faults.
Besey proves supremacy in durability, sleekness, quality, and users’ comfort by forming the kick scooter body entirely from aluminum in a stylish and trending style and also using an ABEC- 9 top-grade bearings for supporting a human weight of 100 kg (220 Ibs). Aside from this, its retractable anti-skid silicone handle with foam grip, large anti-skid tires, and disc brake and foot brake create uniqueness in maneuverability and piloting. The one-button folding makes it super portable for someone who travels around.

Gilon SnapnGo is commended and appraised by its users for designing this unique 250 watts (peak 600W) motorized scooter with three anti-skid wheels showing their enthusiastic consideration of ergonomics and mobility. Also, worthy of praise is this scooter’s lightweight frame. It was made from 6061-TS aircraft-grade aluminum suspended on 8″ honeycomb never-flat tire with 2.75″ (7cm) ground clearance. Additionally, it can take a maximum weight of 300 lbs on a comfortable seat.
The instrumentation and controls like a handbrake, a three-speed changing unit and rear brakes ensure easy operation. It runs on a 36v, 6.4 Ah detachable, renewable lithium-ion battery to achieve a speed of 10mph to last for 12 miles. With all these features, the scooter never exceeds 2 square feet (929 cm²) when folded – impressive, right?
