How to extend the battery life of Razor Scooter Batteries


You can extend the life of your scooter's battery if you take proper care of it. Most people report trouble in getting more than a year or two out of their razor scooter battery set. This is actually a common problem with vehicle batteries.

  • Keep your battery charged
It is recommended to keep your battery fully charged to avoid the build-up of sulfate-ion inside it. Sulfate-ion accumulates when the battery is in a discharged state for a long time.This is the most common reason of premature depletion of lead acid batteries. This can be easily avoided if the scooter battery is kept in a constantly charged state.

  • Charge you Razor Scooter Battery during the Off-Season
Even if not used Sealed Lead Acid Batteries will self discharge over long periods. This will leave the battery in a not fully charges state which will enable the sulfate-ions to build up inside the internal plates which will slowly deplete the battery's capacity. In order to prevent that, you should charge the razor scooter battery at least once every three months when it is not in service.

  • Use a Battery Tender
Battery Tender chargers are a great way extend the life of your SLA batteries as they are designed to fully charge and maintain a battery at proper storage voltage without the damaging effects caused by trickle chargers.

The E100 is a Kick Start scooter, the Rear Wheel has to be Spun for it to start. This scooter will not start from a motionless position.

Could be the battery.
Put the Scooter on a block so the rear tire is raised. Remove the standing plate to reveal the battery compartment.
Charge the Unit completely

1. Using a multimeter measure the voltage across the batteries. If the voltage is below 20 volts batteries are dead - Replace batteries.
2. Now for a running test. Turn the throttle and spin the rear tire to preform a kick start. Still measuring the voltage. If the voltage is Below 20 volts or if the voltage drops quickly batteries are dead - Replace batteries.
3. If the voltage is remaining around 24 volts for a long period - then you could have connector problems, clean and tighten all connectors.
I use a fiberglass electronic cleaning brush, as contact cleaners leave residue that interfere with electrical connections.

DON"T bypass the breaker, This COULD LEAD TO A CATASTROPHIC MELTDOWN or EVEN, FIRE".

If you want a replacement circuit breaker they are available online for under $10.00.
Just type "Razor E100 Circuit Breaker replacement" in Browser Search.

The Item you want to replace is a 7 Amp DC Circuit Breaker.
the cost is around $5.99.

Do not under any circumstances operate the scooter without circuit protection!

The battery can be recharged only so many times before it is no longer usable. You probably need a new battery. It runs with no load because it does not need much current (amperage). With a load it needs a lot more current than the battery can actually put out. The charger brings the voltage of the battery back up to normal but the current is not there due to a worn out or defective battery.

I am not familiar with how scooters run specifically but I would bet the motor does disengage seeing how it is electric.

There is a reset button by the on/ off toggle switch I believe. Also, the e100 needs to be pushed to about 2.5 mph before it will go on its own power.

Replace the Red Illuminated Light On/Off SPST Rocker Switch 15A/250V 30A/125 - Switch number SWT-102050 should be available
at most scooter repair stores or online scooter repair for about $6.00.

Black wire goes to the Brass terminal lug. when removing the wires mark the location as Top, Center and Bottom and place the Black wire on top with the brass terminal.

to Search Online Type 'scooter repair SWT-102050' you will see a multitude of choices

No. The switch should be off before connecting the charger.

Sounds like the throttle is stuck in the full position. Can you adjust the throttle to other positions ? There should be a spring to return the throttle to a "off" position - and then you will have to twist to make it go. The spring may be missing.

Probably needs a new battery. They can only be recharged a set number of times.

The control module is simple and can be replaced with only a 24 volt relay without the kick start feature or Brake. If you want the brake then you can use two 24 volt relays still no Kick Start.

For those of you who know electrical, below is circuits I developed to replace the controller. This diagram will also give you a better understanding on the Razor circuit.

NOTE : This is not a schematic diagram of the Razor E100 Control Module. I designed this circuit. for my Great Nephew's Scooter.

1. The Brake is a normally closed switch that opens when you squeeze the Brake handle.
2. The throttle is two normally open switches that close when you turn the throttle.
3. The Kick Start circuit is described in the Diagram below.
4. The resistors values may need to be tweaked for best performance.

You might still be under warranty. If so follow the instructions on the box.

If you do not have a warranty, try a different outlet in your house. If this doesn't work, look up your model number and then battery on eBay and Amazon.

Hope this Helps You, if it does be safe.

These are the instructions for adjusting the chain. They are taken directly from the manual available at http://ep.yimg.com/ty/cdn/razorama/e100e200e300manual.pdf

To adjust the chain:
1. Loosen the axle
2. Loosen the brake anchor (this is attached with the small bolt in the long slot on the left side of the rear fork)
3. Tighten the tension adjusters on the axle 1/8 to 1/4 turn to tension the chain. Tighten both adjusters the exact same amount to maintain the wheel alignment.
Note: this system of adjusters is common to motorcycles and BMX
bicycles so I your are not familiar with it, if you know anyone who is,
they would not have a problem adjusting it for you.
Chain tension: The chain should be "just not-quite snug" in other
words, not taut or sloppy loose. BE CAREFUL NOT TO ADJUST TOO TIGHT. The tensioning system can easily impart too much tension and snap the chain or bend the motor output shaft. Turn the adjusters 1/8 to 1/4 turn at a time and recheck the tension each time.
4. Once the tension is good, tighten the axle and brake anchor bolt. Test run the scooter. Readjust as needed.
