Xiaomi Electric Scooter – Full Walkthrough

Xiaomi Electric Scooter – Full Walkthrough


hey what’s up today we’re gonna take a
look at Xiaomi’s electric scooter. This design award-winning scooter has been
out in the Xiaomi store for some time already but I just received mine today
so let’s have a look at what’s good and what’s maybe not that good. Let’s go! The scooter came in this pretty large box, as it’s a pretty large scooter It does look really nicely designed and it’s details look really good. It comes with a 7800 mAh battery That should be able to last for about 30
kilometers. It should take about 4-5 hours for a full charge from 0 to 100% battery. The handles are made out of a nice feeling rubber. On the left handle you’ll find the brake and a small bell, and on the right handle is the
acceleration knob. In the center you’ll find a battery indicator that can also show if the scooter is limited in speed. There’s an on/off switch that has a
few functions as well. It allows you to turn on the headlights which is really a pretty strong light. And on the tail there’s also a tail-light that also indicates when you’re using the brakes. So this was the very first time of me using it down here on the street. I needed about 10 seconds to find out you’ll first need to give it a first push by foot and once you’re in motion you can use the acceleration knob to take off. I first set it limited to 18 kilometers as maximum speed, which is its default beginners mode but I quickly turned that off making the scooter go up to 25 kilometers an hour. So, right away I took it on a ride to grab some lunch nearby the West-bund here in Shanghai. So I could try the scooter out and do some shots from the scooter. The maximum speed of 25
kilometers per hour is actually quite fast and I really start to like it to quickly cover small distances. You can quite easily maneuver through traffic situations so it’s actually really convenient. The Mijia scooter connects with your phone or tablet over bluetooth from where you could monitor the speed, change its settings, update the firmware and actually lock the scooter This lock basically disables the wheels and it will sound an alarm when its being moved This alarm only goes off when you
try moving it. If you simply pick up the scooter this alarm won’t go off. And this brings me to the out-of-the-box usability situation. The scooter was really easy to set up; It just needed four bolts to be screwed in, a quick charge, and you’re ready to go. I simply turned it on and within 30 seconds I got
the feel of it and that was that. The total weight of the scooter is 12.5
kilograms. So you can quite easily fold the steering
wheel down, which nicely locks in place, and pick it up. But I must say that 12.5 kilograms is a bit too much if you plan on walking around with it in
a mall for example. I don’t know about you guys, but I didn’t really feel comfortable just leaving the scooter outside of a mall with only that bluetooth lock enabled. So I’d say you really need to get a lock, so you can
actually attach it somewhere. I noticed that there are some accessories to attach your mobile phone to this steering wheel, and this is actually pretty nice if you want to be able to monitor the scooters speed from your phone. Overall I’m giving the scooter a 9.5 for its design. It’s really nice looking, it feels robust, but it’s still a scooter.. I’m giving it a 8 for usability. Although, if an actual lock was included that might have been a little bit higher. I personally would have liked to see brakes on the right side of the steering wheel as well. I am giving it a 9 for battery life, a 9 for performance, so overall I’m giving the Xiaomi Mijia scooter a 8 point 8 out of 10. If you want to buy this scooter or check out any of the accessories you can check out the links that I’ve put down in the description below this video. So I hope you’ve learned something today about the Xiaomi electric scooter… As always; thank
you guys for watching and I hope to see y’all soon! Peace!
