Razor Battery Packs

Razor BatteryIf you need to replace your Razor electric product, Battery Giant PGH is a Certified Razor Repair Center – we carry manufacture-direct, sealed lead-acid batteries that are pre-wired specifically for your Razor product. We stock Razor batteries for your Razor Electric Scooter, Razor MX Dirt Bike, Pocket Rocket, Pocket Mod, Go Kart, Drifter, Dirt Quad, Dune Buggy and others!

How do you know if you need a new battery? Leaving the power switch on for extended periods of time or a battery that has not been charged for a long time will drain the battery to the point when it can no longer hold a charge. Even with attentive care, a rechargeable Razor battery does not last forever. Average battery life usually depends on use and conditions.

If you need help finding a Razor battery for your Razor electric scooter or determining which scooter and version you own, please stop in and see our Repair Center Tech. We will gladly confirm your product name, color and version, and will tell you which battery is specific to your version of the Razor electric scooter. If we don’t already have it in stock we’ll be sure to order it for you and install it for you too!

ELECTRIC RAZOR SCOOTER SAFETY INFORMATION

Pittsburgh Repair CenterPRE-RIDE CHECKLIST for Razor e100, e200, and e300 Series Electric Scooters:

Before riding your Razor Electric Scooter, it’s important to make sure your Razor scooter is running as safely as possible. Please check the following items before you get going. If, after checking the items below, you determine that your razor Scooter is not running properly, please consult the troubleshooting section for further information and guidance. Razor Scooter replacement parts can be purchased from Battery Giant of PGH – our repair center can take care of all of your Razor repair needs!

❑ Check All Components

Check that all electrical connections are secure. Check and secure all fasteners before every ride. Make sure steering stem clamp bolts are locked properly in place. There should not be any unusual rattles or sounds from loose parts or broken components on your Razor Scooter. If you are not sure, ask our experienced and certified Razor tech to check it for you. If you need a replacement part for your Razor Scooter, Battery Giant PGH can provide you with Authentic Razor Electric Scooter Replacement Parts.

❑ Check Razor Scooter Chain or Belt Tension

Helpful Hint: Chain should be “just taut” — in other words, snug but not piano-wire tight. BE CAREFUL NOT TO ADJUST TOO TIGHTLY. This could cause the chain to snap or bend the motor shaft. Adjust 1/8 to 1/4 turn at a time.

❑ Check Razor Scooter Brake

Check the brake system on your electric Razor scooter for proper function. When you squeeze the brake lever, the brake should provide positive braking action. When you apply the brake with the speed control on, the brake cut-off switch will stop the motor. Please visit our Cranberry location if you need to replace any parts within the Razor scooter brake system with authentic Razor scooter replacement parts.

❑ Check Razor Scooter Frame, Fork and Handlebars

Check your Razor Scooter for cracks or broken connections. Although broken frames are rare, it is possible for an aggressive driver to bash into a curb or wall and wreck and bend or break a frame. Get in the habit of inspecting your Razor Scooter regularly.

❑ Check Razor Scooter Tire Inflation

Razor ScooterPeriodically inspect the tires on your Razor Scooter for excess wear, and regularly check the tire pressure and re-inflate as necessary. If you get a flat tire on your Razor e100 or e200 Electric Scooter, a new e100/e200 inner tube (200×50) or Razor e100/e200 Tire & Tube combination can be purchased from Battery Giant PGH. If you have a flat on your Razor e300 or e300 S Electric Scooter, a replacement e300 tube and e300 tire and inner tube combination can be purchased from our Cranberry location – just call us ahead to make sure. Warning: The pressurized air supplies found at gasoline stations are designed to inflate high-volume automobile tires. If you decide to use such an air supply to inflate your Razor electric scooter tires, first make sure the pressure gauge is working, then use very short bursts to inflate to the correct PSI. If you inadvertently over-inflate the tire, release the excess pressure immediately.

❑ Safety Gear

When riding any Razor product, always wear proper protective equipment such as an approved safety helmet, and elbow pads and knee-pads. Consider installing a Razor Scooter Handlebar Bell. Always wear athletic shoes (lace-up shoes with rubber soles), never drive barefooted or in sandals, and keep shoelaces tied and out-of-the-way of the wheels, motor and drive system.

Important Razor Scooter Safety Information & Motorized Scooter Safety Laws:

  • Any rider unable to fit comfortably on a Razor vehicle should not ride it. A parent’s decision to allow his or her child to ride a Razor vehicle should be based on the child’s maturity, skill and ability to follow rules.
  • DO NOT attempt to modify your Razor product. Each Razor Scooter or Razor Vehicle is designed for a specific type of performance and parts compatibility. Aftermarket products may not be compatible and the use of any non-Razor part will void your warranty. Authentic Razor Scooter replacement parts can be purchased from Battery Giant of PGH.
  • DO NOT attempt to use training wheels on any Razor product.
  • Razor recommends that you practice applying the brake at various speeds and in an open area free from obstructions before riding your Razor around others.
  • Wheelies and other stunt-type riding reduces your ability maneuver and control your scooter. Take the necessary precautions, such as wearing appropriate protective gear and practice in an area safe for stunt riding and free from obstructions.

Razor Scooter Tips PittsburghRazor Safety Tips:

  • Always wear proper protective equipment, such as an ANSI, SNELL, CPSC or ASTM approved helmet and elbow and kneepads. Long sleeve shirt, gloves, long pants, shoes, and elbow and knee pads are mandatory. Always wear a helmet when riding your scooter and keep the chinstrap securely buckled. Always wear shoes. Don’t ride barefoot or in sandals. Keep shoelaces out-of-the-way of wheels.
  • Ride on smooth, paved surfaces away from motor vehicles.
  • Avoid sharp bumps, drainage grates and sudden surface changes. Scooter may suddenly stop.
  • Avoid streets and surfaces with water, sand gravel, dirt, leaves, and other debris. Wet weather impairs traction, braking and visibility. Avoid anything that could cause your front wheel to stop. Bumps have the potential to stop the front wheel. When in doubt, avoid the bumps.
  • Do not ride at night.
  • Brake will get hot from continuous use. Do not touch after braking.
  • Avoid excess speed associated with downhill rides.
  • Adults must assist children in the initial adjustment procedures to unfold scooter, adjust handlebar and steering to height, and finally to fold scooter.
  • Obey all local traffic and scooter riding laws and regulations.
  • Watch out for pedestrians.
  • Check and secure all fasteners before every ride. Make sure the steering tube clamps, steering tube extension quick release, and handlebars spring buttons are locked properly in place before riding.
  • Replace worn or broken Razor parts immediately. For Razor Scooter replacement parts call Battery Giant of PGH.
  • You will see people on TV and maybe even people you know doing Razor Scooter tricks and stunts. These are people who have been practicing on Razor scooters for a very long time. Don’t try something until you are ready. Avoid steep inclines and don’t ride too fast — you can lose control and fall. Skateboard parks are not designed for scooters. Never ride in traffic or on the street and watch your surroundings for pedestrians, bikers, boarders and skaters.
  • Keep your fingers and toes clear of the hinge when folding and unfolding your Razor scooter.
  • Maintain a hold on the handlebars at all times.
