6 Must-Have Electric Scooter Accessories

Whether you have bought an electric scooter for yourself or someone you know, there are a variety of electric scooter accessories available that are designed specifically to make your ride safer and easier – and more fun.

We have put together a list of 6 must-have accessories, including options for the popular Ninebot electric scooter models and even the all-new Xiaomi Mi 3 scooter.

1. Helmets

When you purchase an e-scooter, arguably the most important safety accessory is an electric scooter helmet. The type of helmet you need depends on the speed and existing safety features of your scooter. There are a range of helmets to choose from, but if you are using it for regular riding then the Livall BH51M ticks a lot of boxes. Not only does it provide protection, but it also has smart lighting for keeping you visible in the winter months. It is the ultimate electric scooter accessory with hands free calling, GPS voice navigation and a windproof microphone.

A cheaper option is the Metro-V Helmet, it has 3 light modes but crucially, it has a deeper rear construction so you can be certain that you are protected during your ride. Your helmet is an important investment, so make sure you look around for one that fits your properly and is comfortable.

2. Phone Holders

For a safe navigation system and a way to keep track of your scooter stats, an electric scooter phone holder could provide the answer. We have a range of phone holders at Scooter Hub, including the Ninebot Segway Phone Holder.

This adaptable tool will fit onto your Ninebot Segway scooter (and most other e-scooter brands including Xiaomi models) with a 4-claw mechanism to suit most phones, putting you in a great position to see your navigation as well as keeping an eye out for potential hazards. Another option is the GUB G-85 phone mount, which fits on the handlebar and stem cover of your electric scooter.

3. Scooter Locks

Whenever you aren’t using your e-scooter, you should consider electric scooter locks for security reasons. For extra protection and a gold level Sold Secure rating, then we recommend the Hiplok DX lock. Not only does this electric scooter lock have anti-rotation locking but it also has a patented clip and ride system, so you can clip it to your bag, belt or even pocket when you are on the move. Some e-scooters offer intuitive locking systems such as the Xiaomi Mi 3 electric scooter which can be locked or unlocked using Bluetooth, a convenience that gives you ultimate peace of mind.

4. LED Strip Lights

In the winter months, when it gets dark earlier, LED strip lights are a crucial piece of safety equipment. They are also a great way to make your scooter unique. At Scooter Hub, we sell changeable lighting strips to go on the sides of the electric scooter deck. They are easy to install and compatible with most electric scooter brands.

5.Carry Strap and Storage Bags

You will want to make your electric scooter as portable as possible, so you should consider purchasing a carry strap or bag should it run out of battery. If you are buying the new Xiaomi Mi 3 electric scooter as a gift, for a loved one or yourself, we offer a bespoke and water resistant storage bag for the entire Xiaomi range. This bag gives you more options when you are out and about. For a slightly more compact option, we recommend our carry strap that works with all electric scooter brands and models.  

6. Chargers and Cables

Most of the time, electric scooter accessories such as chargers come with your scooter upon purchase. This is the case with the Xiaomi Mi 3 as well as many of our other scooters, meaning you can take it with you to charge whilst you are out and about. However, if you want to add some charge to your ride quickly, we sell electric scooter chargers for the Ninebot Segway range, including a fast charger for the Ninebot Max series. This is an easy carry solution and gives you a full charge in 3 hours.

If you are looking to buy an electric scooter, we have a great range e-scooters and electric scooter accessories. At Scooter Hub, we stock a range of top brands including Xiaomi, Unagi, Ninebot Segway and more. All our e-scooters come with 1-2 days standard UK delivery and are available to buy now and pay later.
