More and more of you are choosing the electric scooter to get to your workplace. Unfortunately, the sun is not always there in the morning and you then wonder about the possibility of using your two-wheeler in rainy weather.

Indeed, water and electricity do not mix well and most users often forget the right attitudes to adopt with their electric scooter in the rain. But not all are equal when it comes to humidity .

We have therefore selected the best waterproof electric scooters for you as well as a list of tips for getting around safely in bad weather.

Can you ride in the rain with your electric scooter?

Electric scooters are primarily designed for use in dry weather . The delicate weather conditions of our temperate European climate can then alter the optimal functioning of this means of transport.

    What road conditions to ride serenely on an electric scooter?

    In the event of a damp or slightly wet road , you can absolutely consider riding your machine. The electrical components are more or less protected from the projection of fine drops of water depending on the model. However, you may encounter some difficulties in terms of the grip of your tires. We therefore advise you to slow down in order to avoid slipping and to anticipate your braking for more safety during your daily journeys.

    Can the rain damage your electric scooter?

    If it's raining more heavily , manufacturers really don't encourage using your electric scooter to get around. If you are concerned about the risk of electrocution, know that it is very unlikely . The electrical circuit is locked inside the scooter and the only connectors within your reach are the brake and acceleration levers. However, these only carry a very low current and are generally quite well insulated.

    However; if you still plan to brave the rain, be aware that you must absolutely avoid walking in puddles . Immersion of your electric scooter under water, even briefly, would irreparably damage the battery and the warranty would then not take effect. This being the central element of your machine, it must therefore be given special attention.

    Once you have finished your ride in the rain, we recommend, if possible, that you drain your electric scooter upright in a dry place at room temperature or, better still, dry it with a towel. to absorb the moisture present.

    How to choose your electric scooter in rainy weather?

    Driving in the rain still doesn't slow you down? We advise you to invest in a waterproof adult electric scooter . Some models are more equipped to face the rainy weather.

    Don't skimp on your own safety either! Effective braking saves you many dangers . You should not be satisfied with a simple foot brake, generally present on the rear wheel. This one being not very powerful, it is better to count on a drum brake, electromagnetic or better still a disc brake system.

    To better navigate the purchase of your waterproof electric scooter, there is a protection index (named: IP) against water and dust. This is therefore decisive in the purchase of your device if you plan to drive regularly in the rain. It is an effective investment to extend the life of your scooter and avoid having to go through the after-sales service box.

    The waterproof electric scooter: the solution to your problems

    Sealing Standard

    The protection index is the key element to know the level of sealing of your device. The international IP standard is followed by two numbers indicating the level of resistance of your machine to the intrusion of solids and liquids.

    The first number corresponds to the resistance to solid bodies such as dust or other residues, rated out of 6 ( the higher the number, the greater the protection ). While the second corresponds to that of liquid bodies, this time on a scale of 9. When no criterion is met, the number can then be replaced by an X.

    For information :

    • The second number 4 means: Protected against splashing water from all directions
    • The number 5 in second means: Protected against jets of water from all directions with a lance
    • The number 6 in second means: Protected against strong jets of water from all directions with a lance
    • The number 7 in second means: Protected against the effects of temporary immersion (up to 1 meter and for 30 minutes)

    Now that you have all the information in mind to make your choice, we have selected the best models of waterproof adult electric scooters for you.

  • How to make your electric scooter waterproof

  • If your model is not sufficiently water resistant, or if you simply want to improve the waterproofness of your electric scooter, there are solutions to make yourself .

    Anticipating breakdowns is still the best way to avoid costly repairs. We must point out to you first of all that the major modification of the interior of your machine can expose you to a loss of guarantee.

    First step: maintaining your scooter

    You must first know that on the road your machine is subject to many vibrations . Between the cobblestones, speed bumps and sidewalks, your scooter will then be subjected to various mechanical constraints having an impact on the screws and bolts of your device.

    It is therefore important to regularly check the condition of the screws (at least once a month) at the level of the handlebars, the wheels, but especially the deck! This present under your feet often contains the battery and is therefore much more vulnerable to water.

    Then use a screwdriver or an Allen key to check if the screws are loose, without ever forcing to avoid damaging the structure.

    To hold your screws more effectively, we advise you to apply thread lock on the threaded part of the latter. But what is thread lock? It is a glue used to limit play and possible leaks at the level of a screw.

    You've probably seen it without knowing what it was if you've ever assembled an Ikea piece of furniture. This is the blue part found on some of the brand's screws. You can also replace it with nail polish, if you only have that on hand.

    Protect your battery

    Use a simple bathroom silicone gasket to reinforce the exterior assembly of your tray. By applying the seal on the edges of the battery cover , this will further prevent the infiltration of rainwater in this part. Please do not put too much in order to always keep the possibility of having access to your battery.

    Note that a sealing kit is available for the Xiaomi M365 model.

    Waterproofing electronic circuits

    The use of a spray of tropicalization for electronic circuit , gives you the possibility of protecting the electronic components located on the handlebar. It is used by spraying directly on the printed circuit in the display of your electric scooter.

    It is still important to remember that all these methods will never provide you with 100% waterproofing. It is therefore essential to use common sense in order to keep your electric scooter in good condition.
