Razor E300 Review: Things To Know Before You Buy

The Razor E300 is a relatively recent addition to the e scooter family. Many people buy it and regret their purchase, but this doesn’t mean that you’ll do the same.

To help you make your own decision about buying this particular model, we will be reviewing some of its features and capabilities: pros and cons, what others say about it, etc., so you can get the best idea of whether it’s for you or not.

Razor E300 Review

The first thing that catches your eye is that this electric vehicle is made by E-Tec and not Razor, which makes people think they are getting an inferior product.

Well, this might be true in some cases, but not when it comes to the Razor E300. Actually, if you read other reviews about it, most people mention its components and construction quality.

The Razor E300 is suitable for both kids and adults.

Features

There are two modes to choose from: pedal only, which means you have to fuel your batteries with your own strength or electricity. It will power itself up with electricity generated from a 12V battery that comes included when you purchase a scooter.

However, once the charge runs out, you’re going to have to pedal to recharge it again. Steering this vehicle is very simple and similar to driving a bicycle.

Moreover, its max speed is 22 mph (35 km/h), while it can run over 40 minutes on one charge (on electric mode). And yes, that’s not very fast compared to other models of smaller sizes; however, it can easily be used for riding through parks or other public areas.

Another feature that makes this vehicle stand out from the rest is being an ultra-durable scooter. It has been designed to last for a long time, so you can have plenty of fun with your friends and family before reshaping it.

One thing we like about the Razor E300 (and other similar models) is how easy it is to use. You can easily carry it around or keep it in your garage without taking too much space.

This is good if you live in an apartment complex and want something cheap but efficient to ride around daily, whether it’s rain or shine outside (it comes fully equipped with fenders as well as safety flags).

Common Complaints And Concerns

Well, some things can be improved on this product, but most of them are just minor flaws that don’t really affect the way it performs its primary task (giving you a fast and fun ride).

For example, some people complain about its mechanics (bolts and screws, etc.) that rattle sometimes.

Another thing is that it’s not the most durable vehicle on the market; however, it’s worth mentioning that this particular model has been tested by multiple organizations, and the results show how well-built and safe it is for children over 8 years old (or up to 120 lbs.).

What we certainly didn’t like was its maximum range – 40 minutes. However, we think you should look at this as a way of getting some exercise, too – if your kids drive this scooter for 40 minutes, then they will have burned around 400 calories – that’s almost what a kid needs to ignite their breakfast!

Pros

  • The battery charges pretty fast (in about 3-4 hours), has an indicator to let you know whether it’s fully charged or not, and also comes with an AC plug.
  • This e scooter is very easy to control, for both kids and adults, plus it has a retractable kickstand that prevents damage when stored.
  • Another good thing about this model is that its wheels are rubberized which makes them more durable than regular plastic ones; finally, the price of $300 – $350 is definitely affordable compared to other products on the market.

Cons

  • The tires aren’t pneumatic so they will require some effort in order to be pumped up (a foot pump will do just fine). Also, there have been complaints regarding its front brake light – sometimes it stays on even when the brake is not engaged – but this can be easily solved by checking all of its wires and connections.
  • Lack of a suspension makes the ride less comfortable sometimes, especially if you go over some bumpy terrain.

Final Verdict

In general, most customers are satisfied with this product mainly because it gets the job done – it’s easy to control and safe for kids 8 years or more to use.
