Written by: Justine Liew

Segway-Ninebot is always on the lookout for bringing in innovative and convenient ways for users to get around the city. Especially during a pandemic, where many people are trying to avoid public transportation and opt for personal transporters. 

With two new electric scooters - Segway-Ninebot KickScooter Max G30LP and Segway-Ninebot  KickScooter Air T15 that were recently introduced, your options for choosing the perfect electric scooter just became more challenging. If you are wondering which of these scooters are the right fit for you, we will be looking at the differences between the Max G30LP, the Max G30, and the Air T15 in this article.

What Are Their Differences?

Power and Range

To start, the KickScooter Max G30LP is motorized by a max motor output of 700W, allowing the scooter to endure inclines up to 20 degrees with a maximum speed of 30 km/h for up to 40 km in range. A slight variation from the KickScooterMax G30, which offers the same amount of max motor output and incline endurance, the scooter can travel further up to 65 km in range with a maximum speed of 25 km/h. 

On the other hand, the KickScooter Air T15 is powered by a max motor output of 300W that allows an incline up to 15 degrees with a top speed of 20 km/h for up to 15 km in range. An interesting fact is that the Air T15 can regenerate some energy back into the battery pack when braking to get you that last mile.

Battery Life and Charging

With a 367 Wh battery, the KickScooter G30LP allows riders to travel up to 40 km on a single charge! Additionally, the scooter comes with an integrated speed charger that is in-built with the scooter, taking approximately 6.5 hours for the scooter to be fully charged. Similarly, the KickScooter G30 houses a 551 Wh battery which allows travel for up to 65 km in one charge, taking approximately 6 hours for the scooter to be fully charged before getting up and running again. 

Furthermore, the new KickScooter Air T15 comes with a 144 Wh battery that lets you travel for up to 15 km on a single charge. The KickScooter Air T15 is designed in a way that is lightweight and lets you ride to your closest convenience store or around your neighbourhood for leisure. Once it’s ready to be recharged, it will take approximately 4 hours to fully recharge. 


Brakes are one of the most essential safety features an electric scooter should have. It determines a safe and completed journey or a trip to the emergency room. The KickScooter Air T15 features an innovative regenerative braking system that turns your scooter into an electric vehicle powered by electricity and recycled energy from riding. 

Whereas both the KickScooter Max G30LP and the KickScooter Max G30 come with a dual braking system - a simultaneous mechanical front drum brake and a regenerative electric back brake for more stability and steerability. In addition to that, the KickScooter G30LP is equipped with newly upgraded pneumatic tires that provide an elevated riding experience. A combination of comfort and shock absorption features for a safer ride. 


Everyone loves a good portable electric scooter to bring around the city for a quick ride. 

The KickScooter Air T15 incorporates a seamless one-sec folding design with retractable handlebars that folds the scooter in half with just one click of a button. Once folded, the 6-axis sensor installed in the dashboard will detect the operation mode and automatically turn off the power. It is also designed in a way that allows the scooter to work as a suitcase when folded, with its compact and lightweight size, carrying around the Air T15 has never been easier. 

Likewise, both the KickScooter Max G30 and KickScooter G30LP both incorporate a one-step folding system that makes the scooter easily transportable for people who are always on the go. With a built-in charger, you can recharge your scooter easily without carrying bulky charging devices. 

Segway-Ninebot KickScooter Max G30


The KickScooter Max G30 is best suited for impromptu adventures to the other side of town or any nearby cities that fit within the 65 km range. It is designed to sustain through different terrains and weather conditions while keeping you safe. 

Housing a 551 Wh battery, the Max G30 wouldn’t need to be recharged so frequently, only once a week while still letting you ride around at least 162 laps around a standard running track. Its 10-inch tubeless pneumatic tires with shock absorption provide a smooth-sailing ride. 

If you are craving for an adventure and wouldn’t mind commuting from point X to point Y with maximum mobility while enjoying the time looking at the scenery, then the KickScooter Max G30 is your new best friend for riding around and exploring in a new way.
