Currie iZip 200 Electric Scooter

Product Reportcurie iZip 2``

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.


Consumer Feedback

"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 :-)"
Suzanne - ElectricScooterDirectory.Com

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.
