These Segway electric scooters are a fun, gas-free alternative — and they're on sale

Haven't you always wanted to spend a gorgeous sunny afternoon tooling around the parking lot of the storage place? Now you can! (Photos: Amazon)

Face it, no matter our age, we all still have a little "kid" inside us. That's just one reason why scooters have become so popular in recent years. Another is that they split the difference between the slowness of walking and the peddling, peddling, peddling of bicycling. That's never been truer in this age of the electric scooter, which takes the classic "kick" method (basically, pushing yourself ahead with one leg) and adds a motor — a battery-powered, non-air-polluting motor at that! Been thinking of taking the plunge, or know someone with an upcoming birthday who'd love one? Good news: whether you want one for yourself, your significant other or the teenager in your life, Amazon's got a number of Segway scooter models on sale. Roll on and read about our fave steals.

Segway Ninebot Air T15 Electric Kick Scooter

$390$770Save $380
The T15's got a maximum speed of 12.4 mph, can travel up to 7.5 miles on a charge and, our favorite number of all is now $380 off.
$390 at Amazon

A sleek design and a couple more (metaphorical) bells and whistles make the T15 a fetching option. Made for not-dangerously-fast, not-too-long-distance tooling about — to the store, train station or around the park — it weighs just 23 pounds. (thanks to its aluminum-magnesium frame). That makes it the perfect choice when you'll need to pop it in the trunk or take it on and off mass transit. Oh, and we're liking the Bluetooth app, which allows you to customize its ambient lighting colors.

"Ride is pretty smooth for no suspension and drove well in the rain," observed one gasoline-averse gadabout. "Perfect blend of being lightweight and having a little zip to it. Perfect for a daily office commute."

Ninebot ES1L Electric Kick Scooter

$285$400Save $115
The Ninebot EW1L has got a little further range than the T15 (12.4 miles) and cost over $100 less, which makes this a compelling option. On the other hand, it weighs a bit more. On the other other hand, we like those orange accents.
$285 at Amazon

The ES1L is a more, um, proletarian choice, but it brings lots of performance to the table. On most accounts, it does everything the T15 can, with one notable exception: It can handle only a 7% uphill grade, whereas the T15 can climb at 15%. Does that matter? Depends on the topography of your immediate area. In any event, it looks cool as all get-out and will get you where you want to go, efficiently and quickly.

This rhetorically inclined reviewer put it thusly: "Can a scooter with a $269.99 [non-sale] price tag that sounds great on paper bridge the gap between riding your bike to work, possibly saving a little gas and even having some fun in the process? My short answer is: Yes, it can!"

Segway Ninebot Kids Electric Kick Scooter, Blue

$181$270Save $89
Designed for kids 3'9" to 4'9" tall, this sporty but safe number can reach a max speed of 8.7 and features two brakes, one hand-operated, one foot-operated. Weighing only 17.6 lbs., younger users can easily handle it while staying close to home, while tweeners can use it to commute to school in style.
$181 at Amazon

Back during the holiday shopping season, only the pink option was on sale. Now, this more boy-friendly version is over $80 off. (FYI, though: The pink one is still just $229.99).

"We’ve had the scooter for six months or so with no issues," reported this pleased-as-punch parent. "We got it for our 10-year-old son and it is well worth the money. It’s pretty fast and goes up the hills in our neighborhood with no problem. Granted, they aren’t the hugest hills, but it was a concern. My son is very happy."

If you have Amazon Prime, you’ll get free shipping, of course. Not yet a member? No problem. You can sign up for your free 30-day trial here. (And by the way, those without Prime still get free shipping on orders of $25 or more.)
