110
20off

Hi, guys

I bought a xiaomi electric scooter (Best scooter in its price range i promise) from sydney store located in Chatswood. It is real xiaomi scooter, not fake factory version. i have drived it for months, pretty good!

Ebay fake xiaomi scooter price is $549 + $40delivery. Real xiaomi scooter sells in price around $660.

They are doing promotion recently, selling $598 by applying promotion code: 20off

But, pay attention, xiaomi scooter does not have Australia power plug still now. All is Chinese power plug, This shop, they would provide plug converter. If you really mind, do not buy.

      Just check local laws (search thread). Especially QLD and NSW

        I think bobbie was talking about how they're for hire ubiquitously (like bike-hire bicycles were here) in the US and so someone could just steal one off the street.

          They're trialing them out in Melbourne. It's odd because the laws in Vic don't exactly allow them. Not sure how this would work then.

            @flaminglemon: they are basically following Uber's business model, implement first, deal with the law later when worth a zillion dollars.

    As per with these scooters. Not legal in Melbourne, check your local states laws

      It's a very messy area. May mean registration, a m/c licence, compulsory helmet use, riding only on private property etc. As usual the states/territories are too incompetent to harmonise rules. That's why state govt managers are paid the big bucks- to sit on their arses and cause havoc for citizens.

      What is a motorised scooter?
      A motorised scooter:
      has the same features as a foot scooter
      is moved by pushing one foot against the ground, by an electric motor, or by a combination of both
      has an electric motor with a maximum power output of 200 watts or fewer
      is not able to travel faster than 10 km/h when ridden on level ground.

      Your motorised scooter is classed as a motor vehicle if it:
      is powered by a petrol motor
      has a maximum power of more than 200 watts
      can go faster than 10 km/h.
      If your motorised scooter is classed as a motor vehicle it can only be used on the road if it is registered and the rider has a motorcycle licence or learner permit. But, you can use it on private property.

      •  

        can go faster than 10 km/h

        Estimated max speed for this scooter is ~25km/h which makes this illegal to use on footpaths.

        It is faster than what most people can sprint at so I understand why it would be deemed unsafe to use on a pedestrian walkway barely wide enough for 2 people.

        That's pretty stupid - bicycles basically all go faster than this, so in terms of safety they should all need registration too (with a licence)?

    The power plug is connected to a standard figure 8 (IEC C7) plug so easy to replace… Here's one for $2.30 http://cplonline.com.au/alogic-mf-aus2pc7-01-1m-aus-2-pin-ma...

        This policy need to be enact on a federal level. We don't have high density living here in Perth and our urban sprawl are getting bigger in the west. This kind of mobility is what drives more usage for public transports.

    •  

      These same Qld wallies recently created a storm when they said they would be booking interstate drivers of modified 4WDS - even if they complied with local state regulations. Howls of protest forced the govt to step in and tell transport authorities and police to pull their heads in. The next Fed govt should give states 2 or 3 years to properly harmonise transport rules and cut funding to those who don't co-operate.

      •  

        That states need to lose most of their power. Education, emergency services, transport and so forth all need to be under the federal government to get rid of all the stupid duplication and costs that go with having three levels of government in such a small country.

        •  

          Yes and no. Centralised power isn't a great model - Feds are far from the "suppository" of all wisdom or initiative. Variety/competition keeps them all on their toes a little, but for basic things (like rail gauges in the old days) the regs need to be as near to identical as possible. A situation where someone crossing a border in a perfectly legal vehicle is suddenly subjected to harassment and fines points to a seriously flawed system. They have harmonisation committees which regularly review such things but they need an incentive (like loss of funds) to get them out of their complacency.

          •  

            @Possumbly: How does it make sense to have a different drivers license for every state? What about different car registration? What about different teaching systems? What about different teacher licensing? What about different licensing for just about everything?

            What about the millions of people that live on a border and have emergency vehicles that can't cross the border to assist someone on the other side instead they have to wait for a local emergency vehicle!

            There are tens of billions of dollars in additional costs that the citizens have to pay because of this state rubbish and that's not taking into account all the inefficiencies. Why should someone who is legally allowed to perform job X become a criminal if he crosses the border and does the same job?

            We have Australian Road Rules that are a guide, the states adopt parts differently and change to suit. You go interstate and different rules apply.

            The amount of duplication is mind boggling and the states need to become a mere shell of what they are now, the federal government needs to take ownership of all these services.

            •  

              @Maverick-au: I agree in many instances - there are plenty of areas where regs should be harmonised. One of the worst examples was Qld's lack of regulation of roof insulators, which led to the deaths of a handful of young blokes during Rudd's stimulus.

              Lots of things are transferable, just annoying, but where they're used by officious idiots (eg Qld transport and police) to threaten law abiding people they need to be given the royal boot, and quickly.

    When I last checked, (In NSW anyway) electric powered cycle"
    1. must be under a certain wattage and
    2. powered predominately by the rider, e.g you must have, and be seen using the good old pedal power.

    Having said that I see some people riding around mostly in the city, no helmet no issues.

    BE warned though, that if you come across a coppa who's in a bad mood, then the Fines are significant…
    around $1000 for riding with no registration, no licence etc.
    So cheaper to use the bus or Uber if you have no choice, or take the risk.
    Anyone out there been hit with a fine, can you let us know the cost and how long ago it happened.
    Cheers.

    Abosultely ridiculous these laws, i was in LA and San Diego 2 months ago and these were everywhere, there are 3 company's that hire these out like O bikes, so convenient and a great way to get around the city.

  •  

    How about Victoria?

  •  

    Interesting with the legality status of these, as there are a few companies about to launch electric scooters for hire in major cities in Australia.

    Maybe it is tied to the max. speed / power outputs?
    And on the news (where public were trialling them) the riders had to wear helmets.

    • +2 votes

      The problems in Australia are you have footpaths that are narrow (especially Brisbane) and packed with people, in cities where these are used overseas there is plenty of room (Moscow for example).

      Overseas no problems with helmets, Australia will mandate helmets.

      These won't work in Australia, common sense is lacking and we have far too many laws.

      And you have the added bonus of all levels of government being unable to work with each other like the Brisbane issues with a LNP local government and a Labor state government.

      •  

        You see them a lot in Asia. Footpaths are narrower there, but they don't care. Pedestrians get hit quite often.

        •  

          This is Australia, every time a pedestrian is knocked, brushed against or looked at strangly will turn into a major incident, a newspaper article, Facebook posts and a change.org petition.

          Australia is the land of inefficiency and cotton wool.

    i think the delima with these are that if they are used on the sidewalk, i.e sharing with pedestrians, then it would be quite annoying for pedestrians once these become common as they wiz past and could potentially be a hazzard for pedestrians as they would be operated at faster speeds than the manual scooters. If they have to be use on the road, then u have the issue of competing with cars/bikes (whole new set of safety conerns) and hence why local governments are on the side of err at the moment.

    • +1 vote

      Simple, just restrict them to bike lanes in powered mode, and foot power on footpaths. I think that makes perfect sense, and these could be a great mobility solution for inner city commuting, and would mean a lot less cars (and therefore a lot less pollution). Time for the government to take a serious look at these, instead of banning them and handing out ridiculous fines!

      • +1 vote

        How will they reduce the number of cars in the inner city? Is public transport going to magically become usable and cheap in Australia?

            @Diji1: There are not many choices, the greens are just a bunch of morons who couldn't manage anything, so many Australians are too stupid to realise how dangerous coal is but at the same time continuing to reject the safest and cleanest option for base-load power which is nuclear.

              No different to the ALP/LNP then ? The Greens at least support the changes we need to see.

          •  

            @Diji1: Your ignorance is astounding. Labor introduced the Carbon Tax (demolished by Abbott and replaced with a system which paid taxpayer dollars to polluters); agreed to carbon emission targets which were on track under Gillard (since basically ignored by Abbott and Turnbull); and subsidised and encouraged sustainable energy sector growth via the CEFC (a govt revenue making organisation which Abbott attempted to abolish. Fortunately the legislation was blocked by Labor and cross-benches in the Senate).

              @Possumbly:

              Your ignorance is astounding.

              yours is worse.

              Labor introduced the Carbon Tax

              before the election Gillard promised she would never introduce a carbon tax, the only reason she did was she was forced to by the Greens or they would not support her. The ONLY reason we had a Carbon Tax was for a small amount of time we had the Greens being able to apply pressure to the ALP. Those who keep voting for the LNP/ALP are part of the problme. The Greens are a tiny step in the right direction, they are far from having all the answers because everyone asks differnt questions but they are the start of a long road we need to travel, the ALP/LNP do their best to do the wrong thing because it appeals to the voters. Put the Greens 1st and the ALP second if you have to.

              •  

                @ruprectaus: Ignorance upon ignorance. The Greens killed off Rudd's ETS because it wasn't pure enough for them. As a result we had nothing at all until the Gillard govt acted. Carbon pollution reduction via a pricing mechanism was Labor policy for years - endorsed by members at the national conferences without any input from "The Greens", although parliamentary Labor Party members undoubtedly had many discussions with their Greens cohorts on the topic. The Greens have become part of the problem post-Bob Brown through their "aspirational/idealistic" models and have lost many supporters, including me, as a result. They have a rightful place in politics but their all or nothing attitudes are more a hindrance than a help since Bob retired. 13% in 2010 to 8.7% now pretty much tells the story.

      I have seen way too many cyclists being assholes to either fly past the pedestrians or occupy the whole lane and slow down the traffic. These cyclists are the hazard.

  •  

    In regards to the legality side, what's to stop you just using at a foot regular foot powered scooter if a police officer happens to see you. It looks pretty much like a regular scooter and how can they prove you were using it in powered mode? Serious question.

    •  

      The ones I've seen have been moving at a speed far in excess of manual push mode. And if you have the app loaded, that would show when you used it, speed, etc., I suppose.

    I've been riding it to work in Brisbane over the last couple of weeks (past a police station, mind you) and it's been great. With the very recent exemption to the 200W motor power limit in QLD I think we're going to be seeing many more of these around.
