The Razor EcoSmart Metro Electric Scooter in our opinion is the most cost efficient electric scooter for adults. You can go a whopping 20 miles per hour, which is way faster than a bike, and only about half the speed of a car, without the traffic. This makes using it for going to work or a regular appointment much easier.
It lasts for up to an hour of constant riding which is more than average. This lets you travel anywhere up to ten miles away and still have enough charge to make it back home. It is not recommended to travel any farther than that unless you intend to stay at that location for at least 6-10 hours for your scooter to charge. It takes 12 hours for a full battery charge, so keep that in mind when planning far away trips with your electric scooter. Another benefit to this model is the comfortable foam padded seat with a detachable luggage rack. Users highly recommend buying a headlight and a rear reflector for safe travel at night. You could also be fined depending on the local laws for traveling at night without proper lighting on your electric scooter.
Another benefit this model has over cheaper models is the adjustable handle bar rake and seat. It also features 16” wheels, which gives it a much smoother and overall more nice feel when riding over the 10” wheels the E300 and E300S offer . The second and last con that we found with this scooter is that it doesn’t fold. This can make it a bit of a hassle to transport in a car unless you unscrew a couple places and put it back together. If you don’t think you’re ever going to need to put your scooter in a car, then this scooter is perfect! The Razor EcoSmart Metro Electric Scooter can carry up to 220 pounds, which isn’t the greatest. The 500W motor more than makes up for this. You shouldn’t notice any difference in speed until you close in on the maximum capacity, but even then you only lose 1 or 2 miles per hour. You should pay attention to the weight of your luggage bag as well when factoring in weight so you don’t overload. If you exceed the maximum weight capacity you are putting excess force on your motor, unnecessary wear and tear on the materials of the scooter, run the risk of ruining your motor, and shorten the life span of your scooter battery. That’ll mean you’ll have to invest into new parts for your electric scooter. A new scooter battery alone will run you 50 dollars or more, don’t get me started on the price of a new motor. So be careful, and make sure you read your User Manual right when you get your scooter to maximize the lifespan, and don’t forget about the 90 day warranty provided by razor.
Overall this is one of THE most HIGHLY rated electric scooter for adults. The Razor EcoSmart Metro Electric Scooter has countless five star ratings on amazon is no exaggeration. When it comes down to the best performance for the best price, this is the electric scooter you want. It will get you from point A to point B in a reliable fashion, and it’s even more convenient if there are bike lanes in your area. Even though this is a great scooter for adults. it’s also a great choice for a children’s electric scooter. With its high weight capacity, no child should have any issues using it, but this is mainly for older children in their teens.
My last bit of advice to you is to keep your battery as charged as possible. What that means is that these batteries aren’t like cell phone batteries that benefit from being drained to 0 and full charged. Electric scooter batteries last longer the longer they stay at full charge. This has to do with the battery cells dying during long periods of inactivity. It is recommended to follow the user manual and charge it for at least 12 hours when possible, but not longer than 24 hours at a given time as that could also harm the battery due to overcharging. Both are not good for your scooter, and balance is the key to maintaining an electric scooter and its battery for a long life span.
Tom got into scooters when he was young. But wasn't a super fan till recently (been a few years now). He loves cruising around town with on his electric scooter. He has two young sons and is waiting for the day he can teach them to scoot as well.
