This story was originally published on July 26, 2021, and last updated on July 28, 2021.

Are you thinking of getting an electric scooter to run quick errands? The Xiaomi Mi Electric Scooter 3 is a new foldable and compact scooter to help you get to places faster.

It comes in at 13kg, and it can handle up to 100kg. You get a speed of 25km/h with a travel distance of 30km and a climbing angle of up to 16%, which means it can handle some slopes with ease. The tires are shock-resistant pneumatic tires, so they’re ready for bumpy roads, too.

As for its safety features, there are eABS + dual pad rear disc brakes, front, rear, and side reflectors, and a 2W headlight.

When it comes to assembly, all you need to do is screw on the handlebar. This is what you get in the box:

  • Mi Electric Scooter 3
  • Charging adapter
  • T-shaped hex key wrench
  • Extension nozzle
  • Screws x 5
  • Documentation

The charging port is at the bottom of the base, and, of course, you’ll need to charge this scooter before using it. It has a 7,650mAh battery with a charging time of 8.5 hours. If the scooter goes unused between 10 to 15 days or its battery falls under 30% while in storage, the Mi Electric Scooter 3 goes into sleep mode to prevent battery over-discharging.

After you’re done charging, you just need to activate it. The Mi Electric Scooter 3 connects to the Mi Home app via Bluetooth.

There’s a screen in the middle of the handlebar, where you can turn on the headlight, check your speed, and change the different riding modes. 

It comes with three modes: Standard, Sports, and what we’re calling Pedestrian. The last mode seems like the mode you’ll activate when you want to walk with the scooter.

You have the brakes and a bell on the left side and the accelerator on the right. And there is a brake light at the back.
