Sometimes you don’t need to travel far to run errands. These days it is more advisable to stay as close to home as possible. If you want to get around quickly without taking a car or walking, personal transportation options like scooters are your best bet.
We have three options for you to choose from, arranged from the cheapest to the most expensive one:
Mi Electric Scooter Essential
This 12kg Xiaomi scooter offers a speed of 20km/hr and can run up to 20km in a single charge while carrying up to 100kg. It’s equipped with a kinetic energy recovery system (KERS) that offers more efficient energy conversion to further increase its 5,100mAh lithium-ion battery’s life.
This scooter’s charging time is estimated around three to four hours with 500 charging cycles with power maintained above 70%.
You get a shorter braking distance with the Mi Electric Scooter as you can activate two brakes at once. It is equipped with E-ABS anti-lock brake system for the front wheel and a large disc brake for the rear wheel.
Xiaomi has improved this scooter’s 8.5-inch pneumatic tires to keep them puncture-resistant and durable.
With large taillights, brighter headlights, and front, side, and rear reflectors, you’ll be easily seen, and you will easily see what’s ahead.
As a Xiaomi product, you can connect the Mi Electric Scooter Essential to the Mi Home app to check riding stats and battery status and upgrade its firmware.
Lenovo M2 E-Scooter
Lenovo’s debut scooter runs on a 350W motor and a 7.5Ah battery. The M2 achieves a maximum speed of 25km/h and around a 30km range on a single charge. Lenovo equipped this scooter with an intelligent battery management system to protect its battery. It’ll take you around three to four hours to charge the M2.
It comes equipped with a triple brake and triple dampening system as well as 8.5-inch non-pneumatic tires. You don’t have to worry about using it in the rain as it has an IP54 rating for water- and dust-resistance. The scooter’s frame is made from magnesium and aluminum alloy, which has a stronger impact resistance for further user safety.
This smart scooter can handle up to 120kg and take climbing angles as steep as 15 degrees. It offers features like changeable gears, cruise control, and support for a companion app connected via Bluetooth.
The M2 also has an LED headlight and an LED display to show data like speed, gear used, mileage, and battery capacity. It has a one-step folding system, so you can tuck it away in just three seconds.
