Mi Electric Scooter

[Announcement] How to maintain the Mi Electric Scooter! ! !

      In our daily use of electric scooters, in addition to common wear and tear, there are also some potential improper operations that we usually cannot notice that would erode the life of our e-scooters. Today we will sort out what hidden dangers are eroding our beloved scooters.

[Batteries] Take good care of the batteries, please keep the power between 20%-80%,
      In daily use, we may ignore the impact of battery power on battery life.  According to science the battery's shallow charge and shallow discharge strategy compared to deep charge and deep discharge, its battery life may be 1.5 times the latter. In your daily riding, the power of the scooter should be kept between 20%-80% as much as possible (the scooter screen shows: between the 2nd grid and the 4th grid), so that your scooter battery will last longer service life.

[Brakes] Periodic inspection of brake pads and precautions during use,
      The importance of brakes to the scooter is self-evident, and it is recommended to check the brake pads regularly. In the course of driving, if you find that the brakes are not sensitive, or the braking force is insufficient, adjust the length of the brake line in time, that is, the part exposed behind the red line. After slightly loosening the outer fixing screw that clamps the brake cable, tighten the cable until there is no friction sound when the tire rotates, and the brake lever can be effectively braked while pressing the brake lever, and finally tighten the outer fixing screw. I need to remind everyone, please do not touch the brake pads of the scooter that has just been driven, the brake pads will heat up after repeated braking. In addition, try to avoid bumping into the brake disc and brake seat during driving/handling. Physical impact may cause the brake pads to deform invisible to the naked eye and cause abnormal brake noise.

[Tires] Regularly check tire pressure, (normal range 45-50 psi)
       The tire is a consumable part of the scooter. In daily riding, because it often touches the ground, the wheel itself has a lot of dust, which will make everyone feel dirty and neglect to care for it. The correct maintenance method is that Mi fans should check the tire appearance and tire pressure regularly (2-3 months/once). If there are obvious abnormalities during driving (for example: tires appear regular bumps or noises, or the vibration is significantly weaker than when riding on the same road section in the past), then your tires may be flat. You can use Mijia inflatable treasure to adjust the pressure value of the device to the range of 45-50 psi for inflation. When the inner tube is worn and the outer tire is damaged by sharp objects, please contact Xiaomi after-sales service for repair and replacement. (Please also click to follow the editor~ If you have any questions, please contact me in time!!! I will interact with you all the time)

[Body] Maintenance of folding structure and risks of wading riding,
       If you find that the handle shakes back and forth during riding, please moderately tighten the screws on the front of the folding mechanism. Also check the condition of the forehead screws (near the handle). The scooter should avoid riding on rainy days. Do not immerse the wheels and body in the water, which may cause rust, motor short-circuit and other faults.

[Charger] Protect the charger and try not to let it experience "big ups and downs"!
       If you want to extend the life of the scooter, When carrying the charger of the scooter, try to avoid moisture and strong vibration when moving, which may cause abnormal electronic components.

      In the end, I still want to remind everyone, please be kind to your Mi electric scooter in daily use, and don't try dangerous extreme moves, so that they can stay with you for a long time! ! !
