Razor USA LLC, a California-based importer, is recalling about 20,000 of its E300 electric scooters over concerns the handlebars can break off, the U.S Consumer Product Safety Commission said on Friday.

Razor has received 25 reports of welds breaking on the handlebar, including three reports of injuries, the safety agency said.

The battery-powered scooters were sold at Pep Boys stores and various Internet retail sites in 2006 between January and October.

The Chinese-made blue or silver scooters were sold for between $190 to $230 and the recall covers those with barcodes beginning 100620-03 through -09.

In 2005, Razor announced a recall of 246,000 electric scooters for a similar problem.

Consumers were asked to stop using the scooters immediately and to contact Razor USA for a free repair kit. For more information, consumers can go to the company's Web site at www.razor.com/recall.

That's what I'm saying! If it's good enough for Steve Smith, it should be good enough for Razor owners.

Some authorized dealers don't have a stock of batteries available and you have to bring in the whole e300 for them to give you a good battery (if under warranty) I believe the old charger was also recalled but if you leave any scooter charging unattended for over 12 hours you are risking a fire.....BTW if a charger feels too warm unplug it.
