Turboant V8 Electric Scooter Offers Up Range and Power

Above all, the Turboant V8 dual-battery electric scooter comes after a long line of scooters. Its claim to fame falls under the dual-battery scooter configuration which yields up to 50 miles of range. For anyone looking to commute to work or school, that type of range should get your attention and keep it.

With a second battery and larger, more powerful 450W motor, we definitely wanted to see what this latest-generation electric scooter could do.

Ticking Off the Boxes

Rider Capacity

While the previous X7 Pro scooter claimed it supported adults up to 275 pounds, the sturdier V8 does so while more believably maintaining its claimed top speed of 20 miles per hour. I tested both scooters using my 150-pound frame. Where the X7 Pro couldn’t quite get me to speed except with very favorable conditions, the Turboant V8 scooter took me straight to 20 miles per hour and kept me there.

Speed Modes

You get three different modes on the V8 scooter. We did note that the V8 does away with “Beginner” mode in favor of “Eco mode”. If you want to hit that 50-mile range, you’ll need to stay in one of the slower modes to achieve it:

Eco Mode works really well when learning to ride a scooter for the first time. Maxing out at around 6 mph, you can learn acceleration and braking before getting into those higher speeds. For anyone already used to electric scooters, Sports Mode works best for commuting or any serious pleasure riding. We used this mode for most of our riding and testing.

Design and Portability

The Turboant V8 has two batteries—unique for an electric scooter. One removable battery lives on the steering column and the second exists underneath the deck. You charge that one in place using a port on the left side of the steering column. Keep in mind that heat kills lithium-ion batteries, so try to keep your V8 dual-battery scooter in a location where it doesn’t get exposed to lots of heat—particularly during those summer months.

The second battery makes the V8 considerably more heavy than the Xt Pro—by about 15 pounds. Where you could lift the entire V7 Pro scooter up by the handles, the deck on the V8 drags, so you have to fold and lift it to move it anywhere easily.

scooter, battery

Speaking of folding up the Turboant V8 scooter, it has a much more robust mechanism for that. A lever and latch system on the base of the steering column releases the neck for folding. It also locks into both positions—unlike the rather precarious X7 scooter. While heavier, it presents a much more secure package to pick up and place in the SUV or trunk of your vehicle. It’s just a little more cumbersome when taking it short distances—like out of the house into the garage.

Kickstand

The kickstand on the V8 keeps the scooter at the perfect angle. It works as you’d expect, and Turboant placed it intuitively on the left side.

Tubed Tires

The 9.3-inch tubed pneumatic tires are smaller than the 10-inch tires on the X7 series. Turboant added dual spring suspension into the deck, however, to give them a bit of relief. The effect felt very similar to the 10-inch pneumatic wheels on the former model. In either case, tubed tires give you a much better ride than solid rubber tires. You can also experiment with lower PSI levels for a more comfortable ride. This decreases your range but might help if you encounter lots of bumps on the road.

Driving the Turboant V8 Dual-battery Scooter

The first thing to note about the V8 dual-battery electric scooter had to do with its top speed. While the X7 Pro could get me up to 20 mph with a tailwind, the V8 gets you there more quickly and confidently. This likely has to do with that larger 450W brushless motor. It doesn’t seem to care much about whether an adult or child is riding—it just lets you take off.

Like any electric scooter, 20 mph feels rather quick when you travel that quickly just a couple inches from the surface of the road. Quick acceleration and respectable braking make this an electric scooter you could easily use for commuting to and from work via sidewalks or bike paths. Check your local laws for rules on how and where these electric scooters may be driven.

Like the Turboant X7 Pro, you have to get the scooter moving before engaging the throttle. This keeps it from “taking off” on you before you’re ready. We like this feature and it saves wear and tear on the motor as well as energy from unnecessary battery use to start from a dead stop.

Before or after you begin moving, you can switch between the three modes. Do this by double-clicking the power button. In fact, ALL electronic controls on the scooter operate from this single button:

  • Long press: Power on/off
  • 2-second press: Lights on/off
  • Double-click: Switch between Eco (6 mph), Comfort (9 mph), and Sport (20 mph) modes

Braking

The disc brakes can stop you quickly, but the desired rate of braking is slow. This lets the brushless motor also contribute to braking and generate some energy in the process. When you let off the throttle the V8 immediately begins slowing down as the brushless motor does its work to electronically brake the scooter.

You might think that would decrease the overall range, but the two batteries and the regenerative nature of the action negates that entirely. Anticipate your braking as much as possible, and you’ll extend the life of those rear disc brakes.

A bit more about the Turboant V8 dual-battery scooter and regenerative braking…While it no longer coasts as easily, the motor supplies power back to the battery when coasting or slowing down. Should you ever happen to run out of charge, however, don’t expect to use this scooter as a traditional scooter—there’s too much friction. The upside is that the dual 7.5Ah 36V battery system gives this scooter plenty of runtime and range. I can’t imagine you’d ever run out of power unless you plan poorly.

LED Lights

When you activate the disc brakes, the rear red LEDs light up. You turn on the lights by double-clicking the function button on the red accelerator. The front LED shines forward and down, adequately lighting up the road while you drive. It also turns on the two red rear lights at the back of the deck. The lights work well—but not enough to make this a great night-driving vehicle. However, they certainly aid in visibility and we’d recommend turning them on if you approach dawn or dusk during your daily commute.

Cruise Control

Cruise control works identically to other Turboant scooters. Hold your speed steady using the throttle and cruise control engages automatically. Either the throttle or the brake disengages it. Cruise control works in all three speed modes and at any speed. Locking it in the top speed requires a bit of technique as maxing out the throttle won’t allow it to engage. I still found I could lock it in at 20 mph if I backed off slightly and held my speed constant.

LED Display

The LED display again sits at the top of the steering column. It gives you the battery level, speed, and speed mode information as well as whether you have the lights on. The battery levels are given as two concentric parabolic gauges.

Where we liked the visibility of the LCD on the X7 Pro, it’s absolutely unusable during the day on the V8. Any sort of glare renders the screen very difficult to read—particularly with respect to the small speed mode indicator. We could read the speed most of the time—and certainly, you can drive the scooter without having to rely on the display for feedback. Hopefully, Turboant won’t use this particular tech on any other models. It’s not a deal-breaker, but certainly worth nothing.

Turboant V8 Dual-battery Scooter vs X7 Pro

Since the Turboant V8 dual-battery electric scooter seems to improve upon the highly-regarded (and still available) X7 Pro, we thought we’d compare the two products. Overall, the Turboant V8 delivers a faster scooter with a lot more range due to the two batteries. Comparing the two, you’d have to really want the technology and extended range of the V8 to justify the additional cost. For the same price, you could get the X7 Pro with an additional 10Ah battery pack.

Conclusion

The Turboant V8 battery-powered Scooter presents a pretty big step up in power and range over the X7 Pro or other Turboant products. While costing a bit more—if you want the ranger or no-nonsense power the V8 offers, it presents a great value. Use this as a confident commuter or as a premium toy for the weekends.

Turboant’s X7 Max Electric Scooter Eliminates Range Anxiety On A Budget

This electric scooter punches far above its 600 price tag to deliver a ride, speed, and feature set found on models double its price.

TurboAnt’s new 600 X7 Max is the best electric scooter we’ve gone hands-on with this year. This budget scooter is equipped with advanced features like cruise control, headlights, and a crisp digital LCD speedometer usually reserved for higher-end models. That’s in addition to a lightweight body that folds down effortlessly for easy transport, dream-like controls, a peak speed of 20 MPH, and extensive range. But it’s the X7 Max’s hot-swappable battery that helps it stand out from the crowd. You can remove and replace the battery without any tools, so if the 30-plus mile range isn’t enough for you, carrying a spare battery in a backpack or trunk effectively doubles it, eliminating range anxiety while you’re out and about.

We spent a weekend using it at its medium speed setting (dubbed comfort mode) as a baseline for testing range and rode it from full charge until it died. For calculating highway mileage, we rode the scooter at a consistent 10 miles per hour using cruise control along a one-third-mile closed asphalt loop. But we know not every trip is made up of smooth pavement without any obstacles or changes in elevation or terrain. So for real-world city range, we took the X7 Max for a spin throughout main streets, side roads, and beach paths across Long Island’s north shore. Here, the scooter was challenged with broken sidewalks, varying slopes, as well as stop-and-go braking.

Key Specs

Range:

Electric scooters have risen in popularity over the past few years as an environmentally friendly way to commute through cities, campuses, and recreational venues. They’re lightweight, long-lasting, and fun to ride. Long before my love of motorcycles, I was a tween tearing up the streets on my Razer and eventually Currie eZip electric scooters. Turboant’s X7 Max recaptures the thrill of weaving through pedestrians with a 350-watt motor that easily pushed my six-foot-two, 270-pound frame around for a distance of 28 consecutive miles and 26.3 city miles before dying. That’s on target with the brand’s claims that a 165-pound person reaches 32 miles in the medium-speed setting–an impressive feat for a sleek scooter that weighs just 35 pounds.

From Popular Mechanics

The X7 Max Design Is Lightweight, Easy To Fold, and Allows For Battery Swaps

Assembling the X7 Max is virtually effortless. It arrives at your door mostly pre-assembled in its compact 45.3 by 16.5 by 20.1-inch footprint, which slides into the smallest of sedans or SUVs. I lifted the electric scooter up from the box by its front and a grip around the back fender. After unhooking the stem and locking the scooter into place standing up, I screwed on the brake grip with an included hex wrench and hand-tightened the handles, which can detach to save space. To fold down the scooter, lift a safety pin mechanism up to release the stem, then fold it down. Breaking down and opening up takes just a few seconds once mastered. That’s especially helpful if you’re hurrying to catch a train or shuttle.

Unfolding the handlebar stem adds another 30 inches of height to the overall package. Once you extend the kickstand, you can take in the scooter’s frame for all of its glory, from the extended deck, which is wider than most for added comfort, to the premium matte black texture, which looks pricier than the 600 asking price. This coating repels dirt but scratches easily. If you have sharp items in your trunk, you’ll inevitably create some blemishes—something that’s going to come with the territory with scooters. Hell, I scratched it immediately with a pair of scissors while cutting off some packaging. Scuff marks don’t impact its IPX4 rating, a durability scale that indicates how much water and dust exposure a product can resist. While you shouldn’t be taking an electric scooter into a downpour, the X7 Max was tough enough to avoid shorting out through heavy drizzles.

At first glance, the X7 Max looks like a standard Lime or Uber scooter—complete with a high-mounted headlight and red accents along the controls and brake line to pop from the otherwise all-black design. While other scooters keep batteries near your feet on the deck, the X7 Max’s hot-swappable 10Ah battery is discretely built into the stem. That means you can easily swap it out with an extra battery and effectively double your range between charges, or simply leave your scooter outside while you bring the battery in to charge. Inserting the included key counter-clockwise unlocks the battery housing, which pulls off and then reattaches with a click. At just 5 pounds, carrying an extra battery is an option, but its 18-inch length will stick out of shorter bags.

Operating the X7 Max Is Effortless Thanks To Streamlined Controls

Preparing for a ride is simple thanks to basic controls that consist of the handlebars, a power and function button, a thumb throttle below them, and a handbrake on the left side. Pressing the power button brings the large LCD display in the center of the handlebars to life, which shows speed and mode, battery level by quarters, and cruise control status. All essential information is visible at a glance.

With the scooter powered on, just one tap of the function button turns on the headlight to produce a wide beam angled downward six feet ahead of the scooter. Double tapping this function button switches between three speed profiles: eco mode up to six miles per hour (signified by a white S), medium speed comfort mode up to 10 mph (signified by a yellow S), and sport mode, which peaks at 21 mph (signified by a red S). The setup keeps all controls accessible at your thumb while you ride. The scooter could benefit from a dedicated speed button instead of being lumped in with the light controls. Otherwise, the layout is easy to navigate without requiring you to hyperextend your fingers, which means you won’t have to worry about your hands fatiguing over long rides.

A Smooth And Powerful Electric Scooter Even For The Heaviest Riders

Pushing off and giving the scooter some throttle sets your ride in motion. The X7 Max has some decent pickup for a budget electric scooter, quickly reaching 7 mph from takeoff. Give it about six seconds at full throttle and it smoothly accelerates up to its 20-mph peak. This speed is on the higher end of scooters below 1,000. Some slightly more expensive options top out upwards of 25 mph. Even when I had the option of using the top speed profile, I found myself using the medium setting to avoid pedestrians, dogs, and holes in sidewalks or asphalt.

Steering and braking systems both respond promptly. The scooter’s dual-brake system stops without leaning, so you’re less likely to wipe out. Even when jamming on the brakes at 15 mph at a sandy construction site, the scooter didn’t low-side, though it did make a noticeable screech. The scooter skidded while braking over wet piles of leaves, so keep an eye out for wet surfaces.

scooter, battery

The X7 Max’s 5.3 inches of ground clearance helps it climb over twigs, rocks, and even sidewalk gaps. The oversized deck and 10-inch wheels (a step up from the standard 8-inch tires) stabilize your ride over rough surfaces. Weaving your hips directs the scooter body, so you can avoid the most hostile terrain. On bumpy surfaces, you will definitely feel the vibration under your feet, so throw on a comfortable pair of sneakers.

Perhaps what I find most impressive about the ride experience is that it offers powerful range and fairly consistent speeds even while pushing its weight limit. You can comfortably load up on groceries or gear and still see similar performance. Riding up a hill with a steep, 12-degree slope didn’t challenge the scooter as much as I had expected: It simply slowed down from 20 mph to 14 mph until the ground leveled out.

Fantastic Range With A Battery That Is Hard-To-Kill

While riding experience is paramount, the X7 Max’s impressive range steals the show. Comfort mode eked out an average 28 and 26 miles with a rider at max weight capacity. Granted, it will take you over two hours to get somewhere 28 miles away while locked to a speed limit of 10 mph, but the scooter will get you there eventually. If you plan to ride above the medium setting’s 10 mph cap, expect that driving the scooter exclusively in sport mode will hamper range. I was able to ride at varying speeds in this mode between 14 and 20 miles per hour for an average distance of 20.4 miles before it gave out.

Leaving the scooter outside or in the trunk of your car while bringing the battery inside to charge saves room in your home and reduces hassles. Fully recharging takes around six hours.

The Turboant X7 Max delivers a reliable long-lasting and speedy ride that can take you the distance from point A to B and then some for an affordable price. I found myself leaving the spare in my trunk while around town, as the onboard battery provided plenty of range for an all-day cruising around town or a venue, but the option to carry an extra battery kept range anxiety pangs away.
