Thinking back to my college days, I remember getting a lot of walking into each day. This was especially true my freshman year as I lived in a dorm that was off the main campus. There was a bus available, but my schedule didn’t always mesh with the bus schedule.
Fast forward to today and my eldest is a commuter student. Some days he is able to get a parking spot that doesn’t seem like it is across town. But, other days he gets to do all the walking.
That isn’t too bad when the campus is a ghost town. But throw in a few thousand students and you can get mayhem.
Now there are more options available to students to get around campus or even around the town. When I was spending part of the year in the Denver area, I would see many students renting the electric scooters to get around. They can be a great option here and there, but those by the minute charges can add up fast. That’s what is so appealing about the Hover-1 Journey Electric Folding Scooter available now through Best Buy. You can have the upside of getting around campus quickly with less total cost than renting.
More About the Hover-1 Journey Electric Folding Scooter
One of the key features of this scooter that caught my eye when thinking about a college student is the ability to fold neatly in half for easy storage. This means less space in a dorm room or something to keep in the trunk of a car for a commuter student.
Weighing 27 pounds, your student can lift and stow it once they arrive at their destination.
Moving about campus or town can be done safely thanks to a bright LED headlight.
And with a 16-mile battery life and 14 MPH top speed, the time to get places is shortened. That leaves more time for other important things like studying, sleeping, or hanging out with friends. And charging the 36V UL certified battery pack is simple with the provided easy-to-use charger.
Just remember, your student needs to ride responsibly. This includes knowing and obeying all state and local regulations. Also, protective gear is important (and also available at Best Buy.) And keep the weight capacity of 220 pounds in mind when packing your backpack!
