2 - X7 Pro Folding Electric Scooter
After doing my research of scooters built for larger adults, I found Turboant with help from www.electricscooterinsider.com. I was so excited by the reviews from electricscooterinsider.com. I am 6'-5" and 265lbs and here is a scooter built to carry up to 275lbs, wow. Everything about Turboant and how they built their scooters was smart, efficient, sleek, and looked very cool. I bought a pair of the X7 Pro Electric Scooters, one for me and one for normal human sized girlfriend.
Out of the box it was awesome, I put it together easily and standing on it the scooter felt sturdy and strong and built to carry 275lbs. My 110lb girlfriend was ecstatic, she was zipping and zooming around like an electric scooter riding phenom. Then it was my turn.
Whitin 2 minutes my battery overheating warning was going off and I could barely make out my girlfriend’s silhouette as she rode away into a galaxy far, far away.
This is where I am supposed to write that Turboant immediately sent out a replacement battery or set up a return and refund because I was in the 30 days return window. Unfortunately, that is not what happened.
I contacted customer service and the gentleman I spoke to told me that, “Of course the battery should not be overheating after 2 minutes and that he was sending an email to his management team” and, I should send an email to the support department. So, I put an email together and sent it in. I started of with the battery overheating and apparently that’s all I should have said, battery is overheating, it’s defective, end of story. But I was dumb enough to go into detail about the scooters performance before it overheated. I couldn’t get above 7 miles an hour on a flat, paved, dry road, and my girlfriend hit 20 mph. Going up a slight incline my girlfriend got hers up to 13mph and I got to carry mine up the incline because it stopped dead and I’m pretty sure I heard the scooter whimper before it stopped. This scooter may technically be able to “hold” 275lbs but it sure as heck can’t “move” 275lbs.
The Management team responded to my email with the threat that a return would cost me a 25% restocking fee and they included a photocopy of the fine print page that weather conditions, outside temperature, road conditions, tire conditions and every other possible scenario would affect the performance of the scooter.
Yup, I get that, I understand all that but what about the battery overheating after 2 minutes of riding under “ALL” of the conditions they listed. Nothing, zip, nada. No response to my emails, no call backs, nothing.
I am sorry to say I do not trust Turboant. I do not trust Turboant to stand behind their product. I do not trust Turboants advertisements. I do not trust Turboant to honor their one-year warranty against defects. I do not trust the Turboant customer service reps. I do not trust the Turboant “managers”. I believe Turboant is ignoring me, hoping I’ll go away or the 30 day return window will close.
I am going to post this review everywhere I can. To every web page, retailer, and reviewer. Anywhere I see Turboants advertisements, I am going to do whatever I can to warn people about this untrust worthy company and their products. They have $1,000.00 of my money and I have one defective scooter and one scooter that’s great as long as the rider is only 110lbs.
My V8 Scooter
I've been following Turboant for its new product news and ordered one when it was available. I guess I'm one of the first buyers of the v8. Happy with the delivery time cause it came on the fifth day after I bought it. The appearance was cooool, looking pretty mechanical, but lack modern touch. setup was easy, almost ready to ride out of the box. The dual batteries and big motor serve me well cuase I'm a big guy. The power is quite good for heavy weights. The deck is wide and I can put my both feet in a comfortable position. The scooter itself is heavy though, I don't feel like carrying it at all or even folding it up. I love it anyway! !
The Turboant X7 Max was a great purchase.
The Turboant X7 Max was a great purchase. Scooter arrived in only 3 days with no damage. It was packed well. I have ridden the scooter every day since I got it and noticed how much better it is than my Shell SR-5 Ride scooter. The Turbo Max has pneumatic tires which has a great ride. The battery life is wonderful and has a terrific distance. I live in Kentucky and there’s hills but nothing the MAX can’t handle. The brakes are a step above my other scooter and really stops you quickly. I purchased an extra battery and this will let me go 40-50 miles before a recharge. If I had to do it over I would buy the same scooter.
M10 Electric Scooter
I originally bought this scooter for myself for my commute. There's a short way that I have to walk for about 20 minutes after getting off the metro. It's find if the weather is cool but it's hard to stand in summer. I usually take the m10 to the metro and ride it to my company and then stack it under my desk. My mom (mid 50s) broke her left foot in heels, and it hurts to walk too long. So i give her my scooter. The scooter is easy to easy even for my mom (she get really dump when it comes to electric things) But i'm happy that she figures it out easily and likes it. I may get a new one next time they have a sale.
So much fun!
So much fun and has a lot of power even though I weigh 265 pounds I would recommend it to everyone
Love this ride!
Love this ride! I can scoot around town with ease! Not really a long distance commute scooter. But great for short distance rides! I charge the battery every night and scoot around town. Love it!
Love this scooter
Love this scooter, especially the cruise control feature. I can get to 20mhp with no problem, and even though I've been riding it all over town, the battery has not gone below 80%. The tires are very sturdy and make for a smooth ride. It has a very bright LED front light and a flashing red light on the rear, making it very visible at night. Looking forward to the updates on the speed of future models. The only add-on I wish it had was a locking feature app.
Very easy to ride
Started using it back and forth from office and home, about 2 miles each way on mostly flat surface. You notice the instant acceleration, and it takes no time to get used to balancing, deceleration and acceleration. The brake is very sensitive so don’t brake too hard, little bit a time gently.
After weeks of usage, my wife loves it too. Don’t think the many Ps are very useful though, I hardly change the settings. It works fine the way it was pre-set.
Its nothing in the beginning but getting more useful and I'm loving it more by day
The first few days when I got this scooter I didn't feel much, just ride it out to buy groceries and to the gym or nearby coffes. I found I cannot do without it when one day I forgo to charge it and had to walk for 1-2km to pick up my stuff... It was not far at all but I just didn't want to walk at all after getting used to scooter to all the places.
a great scooter for distance
Overall, I think it’s a great scooter for distance. As a college student, it’s great to ride around such a huge campus and to places that are close off campus. It’s nice that at the top of the body, it has a entry way for me to loop my lock, so it’s easy to secure. Does go around 20 mph and because I am a lot heavier, I don’t get the full 50, but honestly, for the purpose I use it for, I don’t even notice it. Again, great scooter!
