Any Segway Ninebot ES2 owners here?


How's your uphill performance without the extended battery pack? Only got mine a couple of weeks ago, and I'm finding that it's incapable of climbing. With acceleration set to red I can get up a 5-6 degree incline at about 4 kmh and constantly kicking. Anything above that - it just gives up the ghost. Is this normal?

Yep totally normal. I have the ES4 and find that it assists me up-hill, but I do often have to kick too - the extra battery gives it high performance mode which can go up-hill quite a bit better at the cost of a fair chunk of battery. It also is very dependent on your weight.


All the "sold in stores" type scooters with a 25-30km/h speed limit are rather gutless up-hill. If you want something a bit better then something like the Zero range will get you up with a bit more speed ( but as you can see at a cost :)

If your are on the heavy side like I am, even a Zero 9 doesn't help 😀
