You know it will provide hours of fun for your child, but we bet there are some things that you didn’t know about the Razor E300, which is featured as a deal on NerdWallet.com. Let’s explore five little-known facts:
1. It Packs Power
The Razor E300 packs some serious punch. With its 300-watt, high-torque chain motor, the scooter can drive up hills quickly, topping out at 15 mph. Compare that with other scooters on the market, which have 100-watt motors and max out at about 10 mph.
You might think the juice from a rechargeable battery won’t last long, especially when powering a 300-watt motor, but that’s not true of the Razor E300. The scooter will run on average for 40 minutes, or more than 10 miles, before it needs to be plugged back in.
2. You Can Sit Down
Yes, it’s true, you can sit or stand on your Razor E300. The Razor E300, which comes in a variety of colors, including blue and gray, features a seat post and a comfortably padded seat that can be easily removed, affording both stand-up and sit-down riding.
3. Adults Can Ride, Too
The Razor E300 isn’t just for kids. With its supersized deck, sturdy frame, extra-wide, 10-inch pneumatic tires and weight capacity of 220 pounds, the Razor E300 is built for both teens and adults. When fully assembled, the Razor E300’s dimensions are 41 inches by 17 inches by 42 inches, and it weighs 52 pounds.
4. It’s Economical/Eco-Friendly
As the Razor E300, which has a twist-grip acceleration control and hand-operated rear brake, isn’t powered by gas and instead is powered by two 12v, sealed lead acid rechargeable batteries, it is environmentally friendly. So, you can feel good using it to ride to work or even have your child use it to get to and from his or her friend’s house, instead of taking the car.
5. It’s Available at Most Stores
The Razor E300 is widely available at numerous retailers for about the same price and can also be delivered right to your door. For example Walmart, Target and Amazon.com are all selling the scooter for less than $250 with free shipping and Toys R Us has it for just under $260 with free shipping. You can also find the scooter on e-bay; one seller for example, is selling the E300 in pink for $239.00 with free shipping.
