Razor E100 Electric Scooter Features and Specifications
Razor E100 Electric Scooter is powered by a pair of 12V 4.5Ah lead-acid batteries, powering a single 24V 100W electric motor with a chain drive, ensuring maximum speed of ~10 mph (~16 km/h) and endurance of 30-40 minutes, depending on the driving style, terrain, user weight and similar.
The basic Razor E100 Electric Scooter model weighs 26 pounds (~11.8 kg) - there are also similar "Razor E100 Glow" models that weigh slightly more, but they also feature LEDs on the deck that light up each time the user twist the throttle.
Deck size is compact and tailored for kids - its length is 21 inches (~533 mm) and width is 7 inches (~178 mm).
For a user to start a ride, the scooter has to be turned ON and kick started to ~3 mph (~5 km/h) after which throttle and electric motor can be used to control the speed of the electric scooter.
Razor E100 Electric Scooter features 8 inches (20.3 cm) wheels with the front tire being pneumatic and the rear tire is made of urethane.
Chain cover can be removed, exposing chain, sprockets and motor - in everyday use, the chain cover is in position, preventing various items and/or dirt to get tangled around the chain.
Razor E100 Electric Scooter comes with a lead-acid battery charger - when the unit arrives, be sure to read the documentation and to charge the battery fully before the very first ride.
Since Razor E100 Electric Scooter weighs only 26 pounds (~11.8 kg) and is intended for users up to 120 pounds (~54 kg), it features only one brake - front caliper brake, which does the job very well.
Note: when the battery is fully discharged, the Razor E100 Electric Scooter can be driven as a regular scooter, just note that the electric motor creates additional resistance. Since lead-acid batteries last much longer when they are not fully discharged, try to avoid deep discharge conditions of the battery.
Razor E100 Electric Scooter comes in many different colors, so choose according to your own preferences.
Note: before letting kids ride the electric scooter, be sure to read all the safety recommendations and requirements - for short, safety first.
