Flowers start to bloom, birds chirp, and nerds rushing on electric scooters shout “LANGFEITE better”! Spring. In your city, we are afraid to walk on the sidewalk in order not to get caught on one of the electric “scooters”, rented for minutes. LANGFEITE T8 is the successor to the very popular “eMka” from the Chinese manufacturer. On a sunny day in big cities it’s hard not to notice at least one user of the vehicle from LANGFEITE. Unofficially we learned that “eMki” sell extremely well.
At the end of May 2019, we were writing about the LANGFEITE L8, the old Electric Scooter. I was very excited then, because electric vehicles were not popular today, and competition for Etwow almost did not exist. Meanwhile, the L8 has become one of the most popular electric scooters due to the very good price / quality ratio. These days, the Chinese manufacturer announced a new version, or better, a first-generation upgrade. This is the T8, a model that retains the design of the first generation but also brings some exciting options.
At first glance, the LANGFEITE T8 seems to be the same as the first generation, but if we look closer, we notice that it has some distinctive features. First, it comes with an LED display, unlike the first generation that has only 4 LEDs to indicate the battery’s capacity. This time we have accurate information on battery power, usage (Eco, Drive or Sport), speed, and other information that will alert us when it’s time to get in service (if an error occurs) or when the engine overheats and requires a break. The information displayed is largely similar to what the Ninebot ES2 screens present .
Besides the display, the LANGFEITE T8 also comes with a larger battery with a capacity of 60Ah / 26V Li-ion battery, unlike the L8 that integrates a 18650 Lithium battery. It increases the range of autonomy by up to 55KM (with one load) and its weight from 12.5 kilograms to 14.2 kilograms. The engine power is now 1200W x 2 motors, and the climb slope has risen to 20 degrees. This is all the news with the Pro version. The price announced by the manufacturer is $1698.00 in China, in Europe it will probably cost a little more.
What do you think is worth the upgrade from L8 to T8? Personally, I would have liked it if it had a 4th way, one that could have provided a maximum speed of 70Km / h. It’s good to keep the same design so we can use pieces from one to the other. If you plan to buy it, now is the time to sell the old trot, because the price of the L8 is likely to drop slightly in the next period (it’s already started, being $998.99 available), especially when it’s available and for Europe.
1200W wheel motor provides the max 70km/h speed and max 45 degree gradient.
60Ah / 26V Li-ion battery ( included in product ) for max 70km mileage.
