UL Certified electric scooters

UL Testing and Certification

In 2021, electric scooter manufacturer Nanrobot announced that they were the first to release a scooter with a UL Certification. The importance of the news might have been lost on many buyers three years ago.

Why would an industry rating applied to robot vacuum cleaners matter to electric scooters? Turns out, UL standards matter a lot. UL certified electric scooters are a big part of increasing electrical safety worldwide.

For example, in their race to curb the risk of fire from lithium batteries, the New York City Council passed a law last year. New York now makes all personal electric vehicles (PEVs) sold and rented in the city have a UL Certification: a four digit rating given to consumer products by Underwriters Laboratories

UL marks ensure a high degree of product safety from each electric scooter and electric bike bearing the rating. There are three types of UL Certification given to PEVs:

To earn UL certification, manufacturers must undergo thorough testing to confirm their scooters meet electrical and fire safety standards. The UL certification process also involves in-depth inspections of manufacturing plants, and continuing audits to ensure that products stay in compliance.

Moreover, UL-certified electric scooters often undergo rigorous field testing and mobility evaluation to assess their performance in real-world conditions. These mobility safety evaluations provide valuable data on how the scooters behave in different environments and use cases.

UL certification is not just about safety; it also signifies a commitment to environmental sustainability. By opting for a UL certified electric scooter, consumers look out for their own and others’ safety by reducing the risk of battery fires. They also make a choice that takes into account the environmental impacts of electric scooters.
