Remember when kick scooters were all the rage? These days, motorized electric scooters are what the young ones vibe to thanks to the added convenience. The Swagtron Swagger 5 Boost slots in as an affordable entry among electric scooters, boasting a 300-watt motor and support for up to 320 pounds of total weight. Given how I nearly threw out my back after picking up my niece’s backpack, the extra weight-bearing capacity is good to have. The Swagger 5 also folds for easy handling and storage. Just make sure whoever uses it wears a helmet and protective pads. That top speed of 18 miles per hour ain’t no joke.
