EcoReco M5 Review

The Electric Scooter With The Longest Battery Life

If you’ve ever wondered which electric scooter has the longest battery life, you’ve come to the right place. We have reviewed and tested the ECoReco L5+ to see what the fuzz is all about.

Truth be told that we couldn’t test the claimed 5 year battery life because we obviously haven’t had it for 5 years, but we could test all the other features and we are impressed to say the least.

#1. Best Battery Life

EcoReco L5+

Our Rating:


The best electric scooter with the longest battery life.

Electric scooter batteries are quite expensive to change at around $300. Most electric scooter batteries last around 1 to 3 years so you need to factor that in when you purchase an electric scooter.

The EcoReco L5+ has an awesome battery life of around 5 years or 2000 charging cycles, making the EcoReco L5+ the electric scooter with the longest battery life.

Its 36V 8ah LiFePO4 lithium iron phosphate battery provides enough power for a smooth ride and a range of 20 miles (32km) and lets you conquer any hurdle you may encounter during riding. The EcoReco L5+ has a top speed of 20mph (32km/h).

The EcoReco L5+ is an environmentally friendly scooter, that goes 500 miles on a dollar of electricity.


The EcoReco L5+ electric Scooter is small in size. But it doesn’t mean that it is not powerful. Thanks to its 700W motor. This strong motor has plenty of power. 


EcoReco L5+ has a Sanyo battery, made up of Lithium Ferro (Iron Phosphate) LiFePO4. It charges to its full in 4.5 hours, and is charged 70% in only 2hours making it a perfect commuting scooter. It has voltage capacity of 36V, which enables you to travel 20 miles (32km) on a single charge.

But its best feature is its long battery cycle life of 2000 charge cycles, which makes it one of the best electric scooters with the longest battery life. This means that if you charge this scooter every day all year long it will last 5 years making it a great investment.

It is worth mentioning that in only 2 hours of charging the battery is 70% full on the EcoReco L5+. Furthermore it is a very economical and environmentally friendly electric scooter at 500 miles on one dollar of electricity and 2,000 MPGe.


EcoReco L5+ has rear drum brakes with motor inhibitor. Which is operated by a lever on the handle bar. The rear brakes are powerful and safe. The brakes also feature energy recovery braking (it charges the battery every time you brake, like a Tesla)

Standard Features:

An all-purpose gadget mount for your phone, Go-Pro, or camera.

A high performance full front and rear suspension.

Safe start, recovery brakes and an omnidirectional tail light.


Another Distinctive EcoReco L5+ attribute is its display. All the information is displayed on the display while you ride on it. It is a great display that is visible in direct sunlight and displays; battery percentage, speed, and distance travelled. it’s also a LED back-lit display.


The EcoReco L5+ electric Scooter has front and rear Suspension providing a stable and smooth ride.


The tires are solid rubber tires make the ride smooth and enjoyable. Moreover, the non-inflating tires are also easily replaceable.

Weight and Maximum Load:

The total weight of the EcoReco L5+ is 35.2 lbs. (16kg). The maximum load it can carry is 280 lbs (127kg). However on our test a rider of over 300lbs (136kg) had no trouble on inclines so it’s safe to recommend a max weight of 300lbs for the best performance. But this is still a very respectable achievement for this model electric scooter.
