Razor E100 Electric Scooter Review
The Razor E100 Electric Scooter by Razor is one of the more popular electric scooters available which lets your children safely cruise around the neighborhood. Featuring an environmentally friendly 24 volt battery pack, it provides the necessary power to operate the quiet chain-driven, high-torque motor. Speed control is by using the handy twist-grip throttle.
Unlike the other Razor models such as the E300S and E500S which will move away from a standing start, the Razor requires a small push off by the user to around 3 mph before the pressing the trigger on the handlebars to engage the electric motor. Once in motion the Razor E100 will easily increase in speed up to around 10 mph, which is just fast enough to enjoy yourself without being a nuisance to others. Slowing down is a breeze thanks to the front hand break. You should be able to achieve somewhere in the region of 40 mins continuing riding thanks to the long-life rechargeable battery. Charging time for a depleted battery is about eight hours.
Razor are an American based company, founded back in 2000 with the launch of the now infamous kick scooter. Today they offer a large range of push and electric models for kids for all age ranges including adults using quality materials, cutting edge technology and strict safety measures.

Razor E100 Electric Scooter Customer Reviews After searching around we found a number of reviews online for the Razor E100 and the most positive comments were regarding the long battery life and how easy it was to assemble (just need to fix the handlebars in place). One aspect that may concern parents is the handling and speed of the Razor E100 but all comments reflected how quickly and easily their child got to grips with it, and in no time at all were whizzing up and down the street like they had owned one for years. Most reviewers would recommend purchasing some safety gear such as helmet, knee and elbow pads to help protect in the event of a fall, and also add to your peace of mind.
The only negatives we found for the Razor E100 Electric Scooter were considering the choice of surface to ride on. It's great on tarmac / pavements etc but can struggle a little on uneven surfaces such as grass, gravel and steep inclines.
Overall this is a great model and out of all the electric scooters for kids that are available the Razor E100 Electric Scooter would be an ideal choice if this is going to be your child's first electric ride on. Easy to assemble, easy to control and very affordable. With an average 4 stars stars from customers who have purchased this would be a safe investment, not to mention your kids will be the envy of the neighborhood.
