First impressions: A zippy scooter that received a lot of praise by fellow campers. Adults liked the scooters and how we were using them, kids drooled at the sight of them. The handle bar folds down, the seat is removed with one screw, and it is ready for storage. They're easy to manage, produce good acceleration on flat surfaces, and are a lot of fun to ride.
A closer look at the details: The range advertised on this scooter is listed as 12mi. I don't think I will ever get 12 miles out of the scooter in one charge. I got about 6 miles before the red light came on indicating the battery was low. This after trying to conserve power by not going full throttle. I expected the reduced range given other reviews and wasn't terribly disappointed. There are some oversights and a couple of design flaws that should be noted. The seat is very uncomfortable and will be replaced by mandate from the wife. I agree with her - after riding them for a couple of miles it made us both a little uncomfortable in our special places. Next up is the brake system. I spent a fair amount of time aligning the wheel in such a way where the disc wouldn't catch with brake. Just when I thought I had success, I applied the brake and immediately felt a moderate drag as if the brakes were being applied without my doing so. The direct drive system also creates some moderate drag. If these two issues were resolved, I would suspect the 12 mile range would be achievable. Moving onward to what I'm guessing Currie Technologies would advertise as a battery/engine protection feature. When going up a hill the scooter will shut down and has to be turned off and then back on to resume operation. We bought the 36v / 1000 scooter in hopes it could handle some hills but alas, I guess not. This happened to both of us so it wasn't isolated to one particular scooter. Lastly, let's talk about the battery cover. The replacement battery is advertised to be $135 and there is not a good way to protect your vital (and expensive) battery. Currie Technologies should design an optional locking system to protect the battery pack. We resorted to buying a chain that we wrap around twice and secure it with a padlock. A more elegant solution would be to drill two holes through the bottom and use one of those U shaped locks that would go through the battery compartment and secure the pricey cargo.
In conclusion, the Currie eZip 1000 scooter is a good scooter despite the items I mentioned above. I wanted to point out the areas I would've like to have improved on our scooters but make no mistake, they are a lot of fun, work great for the application for which we bought them, and find them to be of reasonable quality. I did a fair amount of research before buying and knew about some of the limitations going into it. For full disclosure, if the super cycle 800W had been available, we probably would have given them a shot but think we'll be happy with what we got.
We continue to enjoy the scooters at our campgrounds. They are a bit cumbersome to get in and out of the belly of our rig but that the price to pay for our transportation at the campgrounds. One item that would be helpful in that regard is having a fastener on the scooter body to attach the seat. It is a bit of a pain to use the special screwdriver to attach the seat to the scooter. Why not make a similar locking mechanism like the collapsable handle bars? Another gripe is again the brake mechanism. I simply can not seem to get to where there isn't some level of drag introduced. A wish would be to be able to add another battery to extend the distance. Another battery pack would make it VERY heavy but I wouldn't mind the extra step (or cost) of adding an optional second battery to get more drive time. Optional accessories like a more comfortable seat and rear view mirrors would also be nice. Bottom line: We still really like the scooter but would probably gone the super cycle route had they been available at the time of purchase - especially since the recent price hike on the eZip.
This particular model has a permanently lubricated sealed transmission (no chain to listen to, wear out, adjust, etc). Don't scrimp with the other, smaller, cheaper models. Go all out re: security. We use 2 Ulocks and one cable if we have to leave it at the train or bus depot. It's only 80 lbs so anyone can pick it up and put it in their truck bed, so attach it within camera view and to something sturdy when possible. My son lost his by cableing it to itself, but he's eleven and now walking or riding his bike so that won't happen again. I know there are probably better machines out there, 1,200.00 for a different make and model with a lithium battery, for example. I just want to make clear the point that I think this is a sound purchase, regardless of it's expense. It's paid for itself many times over in gas (it costs about eleven cents to charge it for 15 miles of use).
Here in Texas it falls under the same law as a bicycle. Get your loved ones a helmet each and let 'em go. They're a blast that doesn't wear off. Usually you'll see women pointing at you from within a car and the husband smirking, she wants one, he may be in an SUV worrying about paying for the next 80.00 tank of gas.
