Nanrobot D5+ Electric Scooter Review
The Nanrobot D5+ is a lot like the D4+ but with a couple of enhancements. One of the most notable improvements is a larger lithium-ion battery which can provide longer battery life translating to more miles per charge. Plus it boasts of superior off-road capabilities something that we’ve been itching to test for this review.
Nanrobot D5+ Features
The Nanrobot D5+ is considered amongst the best off-road electric scooters mainly because of its powerful all-wheel-drive system which is driven by two 1000 watt motors. There is a single motor for each wheel. When both motors are combined, it produces a whopping 2000 watt output which ends up providing up to 40 mph of speed. That’s 2x more than your standard electric scooter. However, pushing the scooter this much and maintaining 40mph can take its toll on the battery shortening its life to a couple of minutes at best.
The one big advantage of this much power is the ability for the D5+ to scale steep inclines and get through tough terrain.
Battery Life and Performance
The D5+ offers an impressive 50 miles on a single charge. That’s impressive for a battery that takes 3 hours to charge thanks to the quick charging system built into it. The battery is more than adequate and should serve anyone looking for a scooter that can help them cruise through the entire day.
Ride Quality and Suspension
The front and rear suspension are comparatively better than the competition but are no match against the more expensive off-road scooters. However, we did walk away impressed with the scooter’s ability to soak up significant bumps and drown out the roughness in most roads we tried it on. The suspension and ride quality are further improved with impressively grippy 10-inch tires.
Test Driving Results
During our test drive, accelerating the D5+ took just a couple of seconds, and it is easy to get scared at how fast this thing can go. However, the use of front and rear disc brakes ensures excellent stopping power and offers excellent control even in rugged muddy or sandy conditions.
The addition of LED lighting makes it a good choice for anyone who wants to take the electric scooter out at night. Plus you can buy the optional seat for a few extra dollars. However, we tested the scooter with the seat on off the road, and it isn’t very comfortable so we would instead choose to stand.
Finally, when you are done using the D5+, it can easily be folded down and stored away or transported. It’s ideal for anyone who wants to take the scooter anywhere, i.e. even to the office where it can be stored under the desk!
The Nanrobot D5+is no slouch and is perfect for anyone seeking an electric scooter that can do just about anything. However, you’ll still want to maintain a reasonable speed to conserve battery life and to protect yourself as well as those around you. Plus we wouldn’t recommend it to electric scooter novices. Other than that it is a great choice and worth considering by anyone looking for an electric scooter for short commutes.
