Take care with fake Mini & his fakes parts !
With the resurgence of imitations of MINI XIAOMI models NINEBOT - N3M240 and Mini Pro N3M320, you will find below what to differentiate the original from the fake, from the copy.
If you have any doubt about only one of the elements, it is a fake, there is no history of new versions, "manufactured under license Ninebot" etc ...
As a reminder, NINEBOT left this summer hunting against manufacturers and resellers of fake using its patents, imitating its brand.
If you buy a Mini where one of these companies is mentioned (in its manufacture, in the manual, or in the advertisement), it is not an original, here is the list:
>>> Powerboard LLC, Scottsdale, AZ; Metem Teknoloji Sistemleri San, Turkey; Metem Teknoloji Sistemleri San, Turkey; Changzhou Airwheel Technology Co., Ltd., China; Airwheel, Netherlands; Airwheel, Hoboken, NJ; Fastwheel, China; Shenzhen Chenduoxing Electronic Technology Ltd., China, aka C-Star, China; Hangzhou Chic Intelligent Technology Co., Ltd., China; Hovershop, Placentia, California; Shenzhen Jomo Technology Co., Ltd., aka Koowheel, China; Guanghzou Kebye Electronic Technology Co., Ltd., aka Gotway, China; And Inventist, Inc., Camas, WA
Looking for info on SEGWAY NINEBOT, I came across a pretty amazing article
Ninebot lodged a complaint with the US authorities for patent infringement " the US International Trade Commission (USITC) to conduct an investigation under section 337 of the Tariff Act of 1930 into 13 companies from several countries including US, Netherlands, Turkey and China "
On the online stores, some copy / fake resellers do not hesitate to use the name "NINEBOT MINI XIAOMI SEGWAY" by putting the original photos of the product
Others, however, do not use these names, but still display original photos of the product
EXAMPLES OF FAKE ONLINE SHOPS

THE CONNECTION TO APPLICATION:
To check that your battery is original, in the application NINEBOT, parameters, about the battery, all the data must appear, if there is one, if it is white, it is that the battery does not communicate normally Its data, so you can start to worry
The battery has a firmware version of the BMS, it is also a clue to check, with serial number and production
The home screen should give you the number of kilometers remaining and contain all the complete info

There are of course many other details that allow us to differentiate the true from the fake, but those shown here are sufficient to quickly return your mini fake to his seller, require refund if he mentioned that it was an original product
Hence the importance of keeping screenshots of the online shop, at the time of purchase, where we see the article called "MINI NINEBOT ........"
And in case you can not differentiate the true from the false, contact me in private message, I have other techniques .....
Take care to your safety
25 euros a tire that is not original at a Chinese seller
24 euros the original Ninebot tire in an official reseller
