As Paul said, you don't have to buy Razor batteries, BUT you do need to make sure the batteries you do buy are designed for deep discharge applications. These will generally be a little more expensive than the batteries designed for standby or backup type applications.

No. We get batteries from a local supplier and they work just as well. are by far the most common problem with razors because people dont keep them charged.

SOURCE: Why is my razor e100 red electric scooter going so slow?

Your scooter is dying the slow death that all Razor scooter owners are suffering. See my related post on this. Anyway, here's the deal..

I HAVE THE SOLUTION!! No, it's not what you're going to want to hear, but I have it nonetheless. The cheapest and easiest way you're going to fix this issue is by firmly grabbing the scooter, hoisting it directly upwards, clearing the rim and depositing it into your nearest refuse container. This is junk at its finest, brought to you from the worst in value and service, the Razor Company.

I did a little investigation into this problem as I too experienced what everyone that owns a Razor scooter does; it works for about two months, then suddenly the "battery stops holding a charge". You can Google Razor scooter issues and get page after page of this happening, along with more pages of frustrated people learning Razor won't do anything about it. But I digress.. back to the facts..

I need not repeat what I've already posted with regard to the issues surrounding my scooter, purchased Dec. '08 as a Christmas gift and not ridden (midwest snow) until the last month or two tops. So as I posted previously, it stops working and I'm assuming it's the batteries. I call my local Batteries Plus store and they say they can help. Here's where it gets interesting.

I bring in the entire scooter and charger. Let me say that I found the charger included in with my scooter.. "interesting?".. as directly underneath the red/green lights there are Chinese characters instead of English words, thus I never had any idea what these lights indicated. That notwithstanding, the test the charger on the spot and tell me it's working and is (pay attention here) 41 volts of charge. This means nothing to me at the time. I learn that testing the batteries in the scooter will take a couple days and they say they'll call with the results.

Before leaving, one of the CSR's engages me in a conversation about his identical experience with the Razor scooter he got for his kids one year prior. The circumstances mirrored everyone elses: it worked for 2 months, stopped working, he checks the batteries, replaces them, still doesn't work, he pitches it. Hearing this isn't making me feel any better.

So the weekend passes and here on Monday I get the call from Steve at Batteries Plus. Here's what he finds: There are 2 batteries in the scooter; one is at 60% of its life (this after a mere month of use) and the other is overcharged and 'swollen'. How can this be I wonder? I followed the charging instructions provided with my scooter TO THE LETTER, never leaving it charged for an extended period, etc. Well the answer is simple- the batteries for this scooter are 24 VOLT BATTERIES being charged by a charger that is outputting 41 VOLTS!! ALMOST DOUBLE THE VOLTAGE! It's overcharging the batteries and frying them out.

Steve said he removed and replaced the batteries with 2 brand new fully charged 24 volt batteries and it still didn't work. He surmised the switch that activates the motor, which is run through the charging system, was fried during its last overcharging.

Ergo, the charger included with these scooters is frying the scooters out in a very short period of time. To replace the charger, both batteries, and the switch would be more expensive than just pitching it and buying another brand new one.

This issie is Razor's fault and they should be willing to fix the issues (cue laugh track here). Go to their site and be ready to laugh at yourself for even bothering. Here's what I found. First I click the 'service/repair' tab, then am directed to the 'Razor Service Center Locater' to find the nearest service center to me to have it repaired. I entered my zip code and it said 'Sorry, no results found'. I then try my city/state, and again get 'Sorry, no results found'. Not looking good.

I then begin reading their return policy. It has a warranty that's good for 90 days from the DATE OF PURCHASE. Naturally, in my case I bought it in Dec. but since there was snow on the ground it was useless until spring; I was screwed before it even was given it's first charge. However, for the regular customer they'll find that even so, it's right at about the 2nd/3rd month when this thing takes it's final ride and as such, and through no fault of your own, your're totally screwed.

There are enough complaints on this scooter on the web that at minimum contacting the BBB is in order, and might I suggest a potential class-action lawsuit? This scooter retails still at $149, and like most of you I don't have $149 to throw in the trash every couple of months only to go and repurchase another "disposable" scooter.

So there it is. Not only are the batteries being overcharged and shot, but collateral damage to the electrical system is being done which is frying the switch that engages the motor and other things. Have your charger checked at your local Battery Plus (no charge) and you'll see they are putting out a defective product, and based on several hits on the internet they are clearly aware of it and do not care.

SOURCE: On an E 100 Razor scooter, the battery charger shows charged

We had the same problem that I found to have a very simple fix. It seems all that needed to be done was hold in the reset button a few seconds while the battery charger was plugged in and the light on the charger turned to red and the battery charged again. Seems like too easy of a fix but it worked for my kids scooter.

E300 razor scooter would run then stop then run then stop. Is it possible it is the batteries even if they read 12 volts on a meter?


Well how long between runs and stops? Batteries can be bad even with 12+ volts on a meter with no load. Is the on/off regular like the controller cycling, or irregular like a damaged wire? The hall sensor in your throttle could be causing it, if it's loose or not working properly. You can open the throttle with a socket and a screwdriver. Check all wiring, check the batteries under load. If you say more about the frequency and duration of the stops and run periods it would help.

E300 electric scooter battery,


The scooter uses batteries specifically designed for deep discharge applications. If your new batteries are not lasting then they may only be suitable for standby or backup type applications like for your house alarm system or garage door opener when the mains power goes out.

Razor bella will not go?


one or both of the batteries must be bad, lift the seat up the remove the screws that hold the compartment down and then you should be able to see the two batteries below there, first visually inspect the batteries to see if they look like they are bulging, then test each battery with a multimeter and make sure it is showing at least 12 volts, chances are one or both of the batteries will not show more than 12 volts

You have to make sure that the batteries are still good.
Take a volt meter and read the levels that the batteries are producing. If the levels are too low, then your batteries may have sat, unused, for too long. SLA (Sealed Lead Acid) batteries will generally lose their charge holding capabilities if you leave them in storage for too long without charging them.

YOu can get replacement batteries at this online Electric Scooter Parts Store:

Dead battery. You must follow the proper battery maintenance procedures in order to prevent that from happening. Most likely the battery has sat for an extended period of time and has dried out.

I replaced new battery but still the scooter runs slow


The Razor E300 electric scooters are battery operated scooters and can run at 15 miles per hour. This is enough to produce the best fun for kids while on their free time. It's a quiet worker, and with that speed, you won't get scared of the child going too fast to be prone to accident. Yet, it is still good to take precautions. Let the kid wear a helmet, foremost, because this can protect the head should accidents happen.

Your scooter may need new batteries, or a controller. To check these components functionality you will need a volt meter. Check the current coming out of the batteries, check the current going into the batteries and both should read in the 12.5-14 volt range. If your charger, ore the charger connection is faulty you will need wiring, or a charge port. If your batteries are faulty, you will need batteries. Check your controller with a volt meter, or a test light to see that all connections are secure and the controller is functioning properly. If you need parts or repairs done, you can visit this Electric Scooters Parts Store Online with "Find a Repair Shop" feature.

I hope this helps; remember to rate this answer.
