Xiaomi Mijia Electric Scooter Pro: lightweight and compact design


What makes electric scooters popular? There are quite a few things: you can ride right past traffic jams, avoid crowded public transportation, travel in an eco-friendly way and be in control of your own schedule. What makes it possible is the scooters' compact design — thus, even if you do have a long commute to work ahead of you, you will still be able to go electric at least for part of the route.


Xiaomi Mijia Electric Scooter Pro design 


The Xiaomi Mijia Electric Scooter Pro keeps to the same folding design as we've seen on the previous rideable - Xiaomi Mijia M365 Electric Scooter. It weighs just 14.2 kilos and neatly folds into a very portable size (even though the scooter is quite compact to begin with). In the folded state, the scooter is super easy to move around: you can take it on the bus or train without being a major nuisance and effortlessly store it in your home without bulking up your space.

The new scooter also features a nice control panel displaying six types of basic data including real time data and battery consumption. Right next to the control panel, you will see a red button that comes with loads of functionality: you can use it to turn the scooter on and off, select a riding mode, etc.

Safety-wise, the scooter comes with all the necessary security features to ensure a comfortable ride including 8.5-inch pneumatic tires ensuring effective and responsive braking making the scooter suitable for driving in the city. Plus, the ultra-bright headlights guarantee a better range of vision after dark adding on an extra safety layer.

Xiaomi Mijia Electric Scooter Pro: 45km cruising distance + 25km/h max speed


There are several main upgrades that make the Mijia Folding Electric Scooter Pro triumph over its predecessors. The most important of them is the 45km long range battery. This is a significant upgrade over the previous model, letting you travel further on a single charge. It is also quite an impressive distance to achieve for a scooter in this price range.

The scooter is powered by the 474Wh 18650 power lithium smart cell with six levels of protection: short circuit protection, overcurrent protection, double protection from overcharging, undervoltage auto-sleep protection, temperature resistance and double protection from overdischarging. You might think that this is piling too many things on — but when your whole ride depends on the state of the battery, you will want to have as much protection onboard as you possibly can.


You will be able to monitor battery status on the scooter's control panel or via the dedicated app. Plus, the Mijia Electric Scooter Pro comes with something called "energy recovery system": the scooter uses its own kinetic energy as ride it and turns it into additional battery power.

As you hop on the scooter, you will be able to choose between three riding modes: standard, energy saving and sports mode. The 300W engine is capable of moving the bike at the maximum speed of 25km/h in its fastest mode.


Xiaomi Mijia Electric Scooter Pro: final thoughts

The Mijia Folding Electric Scooter Pro is coming to the GearBest with the price tag of just over $400. This puts it somewhere in the mid-range price category, which seems more than reasonable for the functionality you will get:


● 45km extra long cruising distance


● 25km/h maximum speed


● Ultra-bright headlights


● Smart battery protection


● Interactive control button


● One button operation


● Convenient folding design


● Lightweight at only 14.2 kg


The Xiaomi Mijia Electric Scooter Pro has carried over quite a few selling points from its predecessor including the compact folding design, which makes both scooters a very good fit for an urban environment. Add to that a few notable upgrades like the improved cruising distance and higher speed — and you've got yourself a very nice Xiaomi rideable for a very decent price.
