"Mini is not Dead"

4 years later, QBE4015RT is officially sold in Europe...

"QBE4015RT" who ?

"QBE4015RT" or called N3M240, the first Mini

For those who do not know the story, here is a summary

September 29 2015 released an European Certificate of compliance with for Mini Pro N3M320 and Mini N3M240

December 3 2015, FCC autorization is released too for the Mini PRO N3M320 and the Mini N3M240

Ninebot's strategy has been to never sell the Mini in Europe or the USA. An agreement with all official dealers of Ninebot products worldwide

The goal was to sell very expensive Mini PRO when it was released in November 2015, around 999 euros for a Mini PRO...

In China Mini N3M240 is selling for 1999 rmb= 260 euros=295 dollars

Now, With the arrival of XIAOMI stores (MI STORE) in Europe, they finally introduce the Mini on our market

But the price is still expensive , Enter "QBE4015RT" in Google, and you will see sales prices anywhere in Europe between 399 euros and more than 400 euros

The maximum price of the N3M240, in my opinion, can not be above 350 euros:

I have a Mini N3M240, I paid 550 euros in 2016, I made more than 4,000 kilometers with, I stayed at firmware V117, it is flexible, convenient to drive, lightweight, but its battery does not really does not allow more than 17 kilometers of pure ride. While 22 kilometers are announced with a fully charged battery.


M365 PRO

Ninebot Segway has, since October 2018, registered the FCC certification for the M365 Pro model. His arrival in Europe and the USA is scheduled for next June.

It has just been released in presale in China on Xiaomi's website, the first deliveries will start on February 18, it is sold at the price of 2799 yuan or 365 euros / 413 dollars.

An extended range of 45 km and a display are some of the new features of this PRO model.



Since last year, the application no longer has the menu dedicated to the camera in English but in Chinese.

It seems that Segway Ninebot has abandoned the support of the camera, the firmware.

I advise you not to buy it

Choose a sporty 4K camera or drone instead

In March 2018, I tested the PanTilt. In the end, a big disappointment with this camera.

The beginning was catastrophic to find compatibility with a phone, the signal being at 5.8 Ghz. The operational phase went very well, the photo and video results were there.

The user manual had to be translated. Finally, the camera has been out of service for a few months, the image is transferred upside down, the camera has become unusable and no consistent and possible contact on the part of Segway Ninebot or the manufacturer FIMI.

Mini-J celebrates its third birthday !

50,474 visitors from more than 152 countries ! 😘😘😘

It's a huge honor for me ! 😊

Mini-J, since its creation (19 MAY 2016), is not a "blog" like the others.

As you can see, I don't publish much. My website is really untidy...😋😋

Mini-J was born in 2016 to answer questions from all Mini users.

Created by a passionate for all enthusiasts.

It's a huge job to have collected so much informations and I am very happy to be able to share them with you !

Mini-J was not at its beginning a commercial site, as are the majority of current blogs, immediately online, immediately affiliated with marketplaces and resellers of electric vehicles.

These bloggers are not passionate, they are professionals in communication and marketing, their only goal is " Money 🤑🤑🤑 ".

Mini-J has made money too, thanks to the affiliation, thanks to you, and it seems that it is finished, now.

Mini-J, or my nickname "Jojo33 " on EUC Forum and " Jojo33 " on Urban360 Forum, these are human values of mutual help and solidarity.

These values are rooted in me since childhood.

I am proud to have helped many users over the past three years solve their problems

Sometimes, to get a solution, I had to go very far in provocation.😆

I am proud to have also published something other than advice or tips: calls for donations for victims of natural disasters, or for the defense of wildlife, or animals in general.

Environment, Nature, the respect for LIFE I have, I know that many of you share this same interest.

Ride a Mini, love Nature and be solidarious is perfectly logical...A self balance...

We must all be worthy of our Time, of our choices in terms of mobility regarding our impact on the environment, but also to be even more united with each other !

To all Mini users:

Do not get upset, if it's not going as fast as a kick scooter or an EUC !

Enjoy this speed, stop yourself, take the time for share the practice of the Mini to all those you will come across, it's only happiness to share, to explain how a Mini works.

Some of the people, whom I have let tried my two Minis, since three years, will never have the opportunity to buy one.

The Mini has a sociable capital that is stronger than an electric scooter or an EUC.

Be as attentive, on your way, you can see more details, and even help save an animal in distress, like i did with my Mini, many times.

I am more than 9687 Km / 6019 Miles, of road in Mini,

(5 555 Km / 3451 Miles with my Mini Plus and 4132 Km / 2567 Miles with my Mini "S")

The Mini are not perfect, but they are particularly successful.

We are only at the beginning of this revolution affecting personal electric mobility.

Other models, with more innovative technologies, new brands, the coming years will be exciting for the pioneers of electric mobility that our user community forms.

Keep the passion !

Thank you for your support ! 😘😘😘

InMotion E2-E3:

Ninebot will suffer from this competitor !

InMotion has just released in China the equivalents of the Mini "Lite", Mini "S" and Mini Pro models.

Come see the exclusive FCC photos, model comparison chart, promotional photos and user manual ...


DeVinci Cars released a new model for his Serie 2019 :



Released in limited edition last June in China, the Mini N3M240, renamed model "S" in the West, benefited from a rather nice makeover. We'll think about the custom SCOUT model from More4Mini.

Off-road tires, always 10.5 ", fenders that are shrunken and do not serve any purpose,

the integration of two accessories that were sold separately :

the folding trolley (which serves as a support for a sports camera), and the kickstand.

I quickly disillusioned after dreaming that the hubcaps were rimmed with red LEDs, 11" tires, I was hoping to see the battery of the Mini PRO / S PRO adapted to this customized model.

A limited edition sold 2300 rmb is 290 euros / 321 dollars.
