E100 Razor Scooter - Summary
The E100 Razor has a smaller frame and less powerful than the E300. It has a lower maximum rider weight of 54kg so if your child is going to be exceeding this weight limit in the next 2 or 3 years, it may be a good idea to go for the E300.
The E100 weighs a lot less, has a smaller frame and it's less powerful so it will be easier for younger, smaller kids to manage.
The speed may be a major factor in which scooter to get for your child. It's top speed is 10mph. Most kids will go this fast on their bikes.
It has a pneumatic front tyre and it's rear wheel is made of urethane.
Verdict - the E100 is a good choice for kids aged 8, 9 and 10 (although there are reviews of kids this age using the E300) If you are buying for a 11 or 12 year old it will very much depend on their confidence and ability as to which one you get. An extra 5mp may not seem a lot but 5mph extra is a 50% speed increase. Most 12 year olds would enjoy this scooter but may prefer the speedier E300.

Other points of note
Power and speed
The 250 watt motor on the E300 gives more power than the 100 watt motor on the E100. This means it will be easier to power up hills faster and easier on the scooter. The E300's top speed of 15mph will also go a bit futher on a single charge.
The Razor E100 will go about five to 10 miles on a charge, while the Razor E300 can travel more than 10 miles before you need to charge it again. Even though they go different speeds, they both have a run time of approximately 40 minutes one charge.
Both scooters share a lot of the same features. They both have a kickstand, all steel frame and fork and twist grip acceleration.
One difference to note is the E100 requires a kick start in order for the motor to work whereas the E300 does not. The handlebar on the E300 can also be folded down and can't on the E100.
