Your mobility scooter is already a great piece of equipment. Whether you have chosen a two person mobility scooter or a compact folding mobility scooter, it does its intended job of getting you where you need to go. But what if your mobility scooter could be even better? Mobility scooters are built with a general customer in mind, which helps to meet as many people's needs as possible. However, everyone has their own, individual needs too. 

The range of mobility scooter accessories that are available will enable you to make sure your scooter works for you. You can customize it to your liking, adding storage, safety equipment, and more. Mobility scooter accessories are usually pretty affordable too, so it doesn't cost much to customize your scooter to your liking.

The Best Mobility Scooter Accessories in 2020

By choosing the best mobility scooter accessories for your outdoor mobility scooter, you can make your scooter even better than it is already. Whether it's a new scooter that you want to accessorize, or you want to bring new life to a slightly older scooter, getting the right accessories can make a big difference. Let's take a look at the best scooter accessories available in 2020, and which ones could make your life better.

Mobility Scooter Covers

One of the essential mobility scooter accessories is a mobility scooter cover. It protects your mobility scooter when you're not using it, whatever the weather. A good cover can protect your mobility scooter from dust, rain, humidity, and more. It's important to keep your scooter in a cool and dry place, and sometimes you might need a little help keeping it dry. A good cover will protect all of the electrical components in your scooter, making sure that nothing gets wet or dirty. You'll be able to keep your scooter running smoothly when you protect it with a cover.

What should you look for in a mobility scooter cover?

There are a few things that you might want to take into account when you're looking for the right mobility scooter cover. Firstly, how much of the scooter does it cover? Some covers are designed to cover the whole scooter when you're storing it. You might also want a mobility scooter tiller cover, which protects your scooter's tiller and allows you to keep driving it at the same time. Another option is a cover for your seat, which will keep it dry if it rains and protect it from the sun too. Buying just a tiller cover can save you money, although if you add a seat cover, it could cost you as much as a full scooter cover.

Of course, you'll also want quality and durability from your mobility scooter cover. It should be robust and long-lasting so that it can protect your scooter properly.

A tiller cover is a good choice if you want to save some money and protect the key components of your scooter. It also allows you to protect your scooter as you drive. However, if you need something to cover your scooter while it's parked, a full cover might be the better choice.

Canopies for Mobility Scooters

Why might you need a canopy for your mobility scooter? There are a few reasons you might find that a canopy comes in handy. Unlike some scooter covers, a canopy is designed to be used when you're riding your scooter. It protects you more than it does the scooter, although it can protect the scooter too. But just what does it protect you from?

Some people report that when they ride their mobility scooter, it can make symptoms of respiratory conditions, such as asthma or allergies, worse. A canopy on your scooter can give you extra protection when you're speeding along, helping to solve this problem. Another reason to install a canopy is to protect you from the sun, rain, wind, and other weather. You'll feel more comfortable riding your mobility scooter in different weather when you have something over your head.

There are both soft and hard canopies, with soft canopies generally being the cheaper option. Some canopies can also be added and removed as you need them, while others are designed to be a permanent addition to your scooter. Another thing to keep in mind is that some canopies might only be compatible with certain scooter brands.

Mobility Scooter Baskets

One of the great things about a mobility scooter is that it makes it easier to go shopping and to carry things around. You can add a variety of storage and carrying options to your mobility scooter to ensure you have the carrying capacity that you need. Many scooters do come with baskets included, but you may still want to add something larger or even have a basket on both the front and back of your scooter. A lot of mobility scooter baskets are for specific scooter brands or models, so make sure you get one compatible with your scooter.

Front vs. rear baskets

Should you get a mobility scooter basket for the front of your scooter or the back? Or perhaps both? There are advantages and disadvantages to choosing either option. A basket at the front of your scooter allows you to see it (and its contents) at all times. However, it also means that you might not be able to put too much in it. You need to be able to see over it, after all! A basket on the back could allow you to carry more, but you also won't be able to watch it at all times. Whichever option you choose, remember to think about the extra weight that the basket and its contents will add to your scooter.

Basket liners

Most mobility scooter baskets are made from wire, which makes them durable. However, it could also mean that small items fall through the gaps. A basket liner can solve this, and also protect both the basket and anything you put in it. Basket liners can also sometimes be easily lifted out so you can carry your things back inside.

Bags and Backpacks for Mobility Scooter Users

There are also various bags that are excellent for use with mobility scooters. A saddlebag sits on your armrest for easily accessible storage. You can use it for all of your essentials, from your wallet to medications. Backpacks can also be useful and can go over the back of your seat so that you can use them without having to wear them yourself. A saddlebag is obviously a little more accessible to you when you're using your scooter, but a backpack might be able to hold more, depending on capacity.

The advantage of choosing a bag over a basket is that you will be able to zip it or close it in another way to keep your things secure. However, you might have a little less space compared to a basket.

Saddlebag/Armrest bag vs. backpack

Here's a quick comparison of what you get from a saddlebag or backpack, and the advantages and disadvantages of choosing either option.

Saddlebag/Armest Bag

Easily accessible while using your scooter

Mobile devices have become part of our everyday lives. We can use them for everything from staying in touch with family to looking up new recipes. When you're using your mobility scooter, you might want to use your phone or tablet at the same time. Maybe you want to use it to give you directions, or you just want to keep it close by. Phone and tablet holders are a great modern accessory to add to your mobility scooter. They include pockets for you to store your device away when you're not using it and holders that put your device right in front of you so that you can use it whenever you want.

Cell phone and tablet holders are usually designed to be universal. Adjustable designs mean that you can fit any phone or tablet into them regardless of make or model. Some of them are just for phones or tablets, while others can be used for either. This usually means that they can be attached to any mobility scooter too, so you don't have to buy one that's specific to your scooter model.

Some of the typical features include padding to protect and securely hold your phone or tablet, as well as a rotating head so that you can position your device exactly how you want it.

Mobility Scooter Cup Holders

It might be a basic accessory, but a cup holder can be one of the most useful things to have on your mobility scooter. It gives you somewhere to put a water bottle so you can stay hydrated as you get around, or a place for whatever drink you prefer to have with you. Some cup holders are made from fabric, while others are plastic or may be made from metal or other materials. They will usually clip onto your mobility scooter, often on the armrest. As they're simple pieces of kit, you don't normally need to match the cup holder to the model of your scooter.

A cup holder for your mobility scooter isn't just a useful feature. It can also make you safer because you won't be trying to drive your scooter while holding a drink in one hand or trying to hold it on your lap.

While mobility scooter cup holders tend to range in price slightly, you're likely to be looking at similar prices for different products. However, there are more luxury options available too if you're looking for something that's great quality and will last a long time.

If you're a mobility scooter user, you might also have other medical equipment that you need to carry around with you. Many people who use mobility scooters also have a cane or crutches that they use to get around. Others might have an oxygen tank or other medical equipment that they need to take with them. You need somewhere to secure these items so that they are there for you when you need them.

If you use a mobility aid such as a cane, crutches, or a walker, you can get a holder to attach to the back or side of your mobility scooter. It makes it easier to transport your mobility aid so that you can take it out when you want or need to leave your mobility scooter behind. Most of them attach to the back of the scooter, which means they won't get in your way when you're driving. Some attach to the side, making your cane or crutch easily accessible. You can find cane and crutch holders that are clips, and some that are bags.

If you use an oxygen tank, you can also get a handy holder for it. You'll be able to put your tank on the back of your mobility scooter, where it's out of the way, and you'll be able to bring the vital lifeline with you wherever you go.

Mobility Scooter Safety Items

Staying safe on your scooter is essential, especially if you're riding it when the lighting isn't so good, or there's poor visibility for other reasons. Fortunately, there's a great range of safety mobility scooter accessories.

Safety flags let people know where you are, whether they're driving, cycling, walking, or even using their own mobility scooter. They're a simple accessory, but they can make a big difference to your safety and the safety of others. Attaching lights and reflective accessories to your scooter will also let people know where you are when it's getting dark, or it's foggy. Seat belts offer another way to keep you safe, ensuring you stay securely in your seat, even when your scooter is moving at top speeds.
