Currie iZip 200 Electric Scooter
This is a review of the
Currie iZip 200 Electric Scooter.
This electric scooter offers 200 watts of
power, with a 5 mile range and a top speed of up to 8 mph
(depending ont he weight of the user). It comes with an
interchangeable seat, which means that you can take it off or
put it on whenever you like. The iZip 200 has no flat tires,
which means they will never need inflating, or become flat
(rubber int he tire instead of air).
This is a larger version of the iZip 150,
but still in the childrens category. The handlebars are
foldable for easier shipping and storage.
"I bought the iZip and use
to get around the college
campus. Its battery ran out on
me once, but that was my fault,
its range is surprisingly good.
Besides, the folding design
made it easy to carry when the
battery went empty :-)"
Based on the above consumer testimonials, we can say that
the Currie iZip 200 is an adequate, short range
scooter for children. Currie Technologies has discontinued the
production of this scooter.
