We should mention that Xiaomi Mi recently issued a recall for its M365 scooters (which is this model) over a loose screw on the handlebar. There’s a possibility that these affected scooters could fall apart while someone is riding them. More than 10,000 scooters have this issue, but they were all manufactured in 2018, so a scooter you buy now from the company is not subject to the recall.The Xiaomi Mi electric scooter has won awards (including the Red Dot Award in 2017) for its design, which is sleek and modern. It’s made from aerospace-grade aluminum, which allows the scooter to stay lightweight at 26.9 pounds. It can hold 220 pounds. The 8.5-inch air-filled tires are made with anti-slip treads and shock absorption to keep your ride as smooth as possible. Recommended tire pressure is 50 psi, and you should check the firmness of your tires every couple months.
This scooter has a smartphone app that connects to the unit via Bluetooth. Downloading is simple and explained in the buyer manual. Simply go to the App Store and download Mi Home app, or scan the QR code included in the manual. To add a device, hit “+,” and then add your scooter. The app provides info like battery power, your speed, and how far you’ve traveled.
This is especially useful because the scooter doesn’t have those on the control panel; it just has that light system. However, most Bluetooth apps have connectivity problems, so it may not be that reliable. You’ll also have to either stop the scooter and look at your phone or keep your phone in a holder on the scooter to have quick access to the app.
