Currie eZip E750 Electric Scooter - $249 + $0.97 Shipping At Walmart.com
 
4 Attachment(s)
Walmart is carrying the Currie EZip E750 again but this time for the lowest price online.

$249 + $0.97 Shipping. Also available for free In-Store pickup.

http://www.walmart.com/ip/Currie-...s/21187742

For comparison, Amazon is selling it for $449 here [amazon.com].

They are also offering a 3 year protection plan for only $28 which is a must for this type of scooter. No deductible or any hidden cost. Total for me came out to $297 with Tax.


The Currie Ezip 750 Electric Scooter is the perfect choice for serious personal transportation. The molded-in graphics and brand logo badge gives the scooter a terrific look. The strong and durable Hi-Ten steel frame includes a steel-tooled battery box, and an over-sized head tube to hold the fork and the handle. The lay-forward handlebars are comfortable and make for effortless maneuvering.

Powered by an alloy DC earth magnet motor, the electric scooter generates a top speed of about 15mph. The EV-rated, SLA-type, 24V/12Ah rechargeable battery reaches full charge within 6-8 hours of charging to provide a ride for up to a range of 12 miles. Watch the battery status on the LED screen close to the throttle. The puncture-resistant Currie Street Slick tires are mounted on Currie polished alloy, wide 5-spoke mag wheels for better control and smooth ride.

Combined with a power modulator and alloy-motor inhibit lever, the linear pull brake provides a strong braking performance. The Ezip 750 Electric Scooter is controlled by Currie PWM Smart Power Microprocessor. A power on/ off switch allows the user to turn on/off the motor. With its smooth rolling wheels and street tires, the Ezip 750 is the logical solution for zipping around town.

Please consider wearing a helmet when you ride this contraption through your neighborhood--you want to completely cement your image as Uber-Nerd...

I'm not saying this is a bad deal, but shouldn't we be walking more or at least pedaling a bicycle (Especially Walmart shoppers)?

Just an FYI, local walmarts in some states will not carry these. I know here in Delaware Walmart will not carry them as they are illegal. Not sure about online.

why are they illegal? i thought this is just a toy you can enjoy with your kids.

Gelfling 01-31-2013 01:33 PM

They are illegal because Delaware is has some dumb laws about them. I bought one for my son and actually called the DMV and the state police to talk abou it. Basically, they are not street legal, so you can not use them on roads. Further, in Delaware, the only place you can use a non-street legal gas/eletric vehicle is on your own property. So tchnically, these are legal to ride in your driveway/property in Delaware, but no where else.

To be fair, the cops also told me that my son riding his powerwheels through my development was also technically illegal, as you can not operate a non-street legal on any public street.

I'm hoping that NJ does not have these laws.

So everyone knows, these will barely climb a steep hill, are hard to push when it won't go, and the range drops to about 2-3 miles unless you're almost weightless and use it only on flat roads.

And yeah, every state has some funny laws around these...some require a drivers license and/or helmet for electrics over a certain wattage, some don't allow using any motorized device that isn't registered for use on public roads, some restrict using them on bike paths or in certain parks. Of course, for 99.9% of the population, they'd never get grabbed by the cops. If I got on one of these, a seal team and a swat team would immediately rappel down from helicopters and shoot me.

And I'd deserve it for riding one of these.

I looked at one for a few minutes, considering it to be like a cheap second electric car and a lot of the stuff I do is within 3-4 miles. It wasn't going to make a 6-8 mile round trip because its hilly where I live.

In for 2.

My days of having to walk around walmart stores are over.

Tempest12 02-01-2013 12:05 AM

not a bad scooter. I started off riding my bike, but I'd get to work pretty sweaty. So I got one of these. Made the 4 mile trip to work kind of fun and relaxing. I got heckled by a few times by guys in penis compensating cars, but no harm done cause quite a few granola eating hippy girls thought it was awesome that I loved mother earth or something like that. Anyway, it goes about 12-13 mph with a 165lb person on it.

Visa, Mastercard, Discover and Amex all specifically exclude "motorized vehicles". No way around that.

Same in NJ.....No streets or sidewalks. Only private property, which in NJ equates to your own yard.

Our police have confiscated and fined for riding in the street.

pay 99 cent to ship it home~!

fymfaholes 02-01-2013 04:33 AM

Not very practical except in very limited situations. You cannot travel out more than five miles and be guaranteed you will get back. You do need a helmet. It may, in some states, require registration and insurance or even be illegal to ride on public roads. You can't go the same speed as traffic, so it is more like the speed of a bike, so why not get an electric bike? Will likely tick off drivers that cannot get around you on a public road and have to drive 10 MPH waiting for their chance to pass. Needs to be able to carry cargo to make it suitable for errands like grocery shopping. Needs to be stored, so you need a cover or a place in the garage or shed. Just isn't practical. Would get it. Use it a few times and then relegate it to the basement or garage.

Sorry, it's called "humor," didn't mean to offend you and the other poster sounding off... but given your signature, I was doubly surprised by your response.

Do the words "Clean up on aisle five!" mean anything to you?
