Segway Ninebot doesn't like Europa...



Are lucky all americans...

If I look at the selling price of Segway Ninebot Plus in United States, it's $ 799, it's 650 euros,

if i look at the selling price in Europa, it's 999 euros, it's 1227 dollars

American price (segway shop is redirected to amazon marketplace)

german price by exemple

What makes a difference of 429 dollars or 349 euros !

Chinese Official price 3499rmb,  is 450 euros/552 dollars...



Among these pictures, I really like the jaded employee who is pressing her blender 😊😊😊 it contrasts with the model...





Thanks to a testimony from a user of Mini Plus, who also had a cut of its Mini Plus in full ride and therefore suffered an accident, I understood what happened to this Spanish user whose Mini PLUS s' is cut while driving.


(Cordial saludo a Roberto Gutierrez Mourente)


It's very simple: the Mini PLUS is 100% loaded, if from the beginning of the ride is down a hill or is accelerated to a maximum on a path down, there is a kinetic energy recharge effect.

This causes an overcharging of the battery, which cuts off the power supply for safety.


The accident is inevitable


In the case of some Kick scooters or Electric Unicycle, it happens too and it goes to burn the motherboard


So, a little advice, if you have to start your ride with a descent, do not wait until the load shows on the Mini PLUS a flashing light but just a full charge level without flashing and with the red light of the charger, which corresponds at 80/85% load


The PLUS battery is 6450mAh


Loaded at 100%, it is 6478mAh


If I start my ride with a descent I'm sure he'll cut himself.

miniPLUS - The Segway miniPLUS is the most exclusive of the mini-series. With special features including the Follow Me mode which can be enabled through the remote control, this product is designed not only as a vehicle but doubles as a travel companion.

Chinese NINEBOT store



The N3M260 hybrid that is a MINI N3M240 customized in MINI PRO N3M320 is at 344 euros in China, it was released in September 2016

see on china ninebot store  More info on the hybrid below on this page ...




Direct link to Xiaomi Store online for this Mini Pro N3M260

When I discovered the existence of a third model of Mini, Mini Pro N3M260, with identical specs to the Xiaomi Mini, I designed a scheme entitled "how to make a N3M260 Mini Pro? At the bottom of this page to see >>> about MINI PRO-N3M260 NINEBOT / SEGWAY

Coincidentally, the Chinese site Xiaomi has the same schema 😭😜

So the Chinese rumor speaking of a new model was confirmed, unfortunately for them, they have a right to model with the characteristics of Xiaomi Mini, customized in a Mini Pro, without any technical improvements.

It is currently sold 2598 yuan or 346 euros.

To recall, the Mini Xiaomi sold 1999 yuan or 265 euros! Cheap customization 😏


Needless to invite you to the utmost caution if you plan to buy a Mini Pro N3M320 (5700mAh battery) directly from China, you might receive this intermediate model (4400mAh battery) see pictures grid specs


Indeed, not only was right to false Mini Xiaomi currently on the market, but also sold fake high price of the Mini Pro which are in reality of Xiaomi customized.
