    What does International Version mean? What features do you look out for in E-Scooters

    • +12 votes

      Seems to be the charger.

      Spec wise you're looking at the motor wattage, battery capacity and weight really. Also this has pneumatic tyres whereas some come with solid. You get a much smoother ride with inflatable but you do always run the risk of getting a flat and having to take the wheel off.

      The M365 is a great scooter that's super popular, but I recently purchased a Segway Ninebot ES4 from a local store due to insisting on having somewhere to take it if it breaks in the first year.

      Also before the conversation starts - these are fully legal in QLD only and cannot be ridden in public elsewhere.

        I did buy from them in the last deal and they do not provide AU plug. You need an adapter.

          The inflatable tyres make for a much smoother ride having ridden both the Segway with front suspension and xiaomi with inflatables. Flats are a non issue if you use this https://www.bigw.com.au/product/slime-tyre-tube-sealant/p/54... . A quarter bottle in each tire and you are good to go.

          Edit: to reply to the one star review on big w website..make sure you follow directions and reinflate straight away (which also clears valve) after filling. I'm guessing it must harden if you leave it. Also give it a good number rotations once in the tire to spread it around the inner tube. Gtg.

          Edit 2: can also confirmed no euro to au plug included.

      The international version comes with two spare tyres, which you may need after 1000 Klms. No other difference between that and non-international version.

      The chargers have a standard IEC socket so changing the appliance lead is no issue. Most AU sellers ship with an Australian appliance lead.

      Yeah, they have joined the price jack club on ebay! :/ Thankfully I bought it when it was lower. I really like my scooter. :)

    I can recommend this seller. I purchased my Xiaomi robot vacuum and some other things a couple of months later - nice and fast delivery.

    I saw a guy using this scooter yesterday, must say the build quality felt great, didn't have the opportunity to ask about his review though, considering my self to get one….but wait do i have use case for this, probably NO

    God NSW is such a nanny state. "Wahh I'm a baby I might scrape my knee if I ride an electric scooter… please government, save me!"
    Mark Latham and David Leyonhjelm might be our only hopes…

      Come to WA, we know how to party here… /sarcasm

    •  

      If you think that the government really cares about you so much, then you'd be very wrong. Reasoning behind a ban is more likely to STOP public liability before it happens. Public liability is more of an issue to them than lives of you or I.

    Got one of these from Gearbite in June last year via eBay. I think the price was just under $600 delivered due to use of coupon and eBay giftcard bought with Woolworths 5% off giftcard (but I think the latter is fully blocked by Woolies now). I think this is a good price. Delivery was quick. Have done over 200km with no issues. It's fast and has really good build quality. Ride comfort is quite good due to pneumatic tyres - if you want a smoother ride you can drop the pressure a bit but you'll lose some range. Loaned it to someone who did a 17km trip no issues without charging but my commute is only 3km each way. Highly recommended.

    Edit: Mine didn't have spare tyres. In QLD.

    Just keep in mind it's illegal to ride this IN ANY public space in every state except QLD.

    • +6 votes

      Under the ACT's Road Transport (Road Rules) Regulation 2017, electric scooters can be used, however must not be able to travel faster than 10 kilometres an hour and must have a motor with a 200 watt output or less. Must be ridden on the footpath too. Sadly that eliminates 90% of scooters on the market, lol

      what is logic for banning scooters?
      Is it common sense logic, that being it's unsafe for them on road, & a nuisance to pedestrians on footpath, or is it something else?

      • +17 votes

        Probably because they can't tax them, yet.

      • +4 votes

        Id say the footpath thing….they go fast, make bugger all noise and people are morons.

        • +1 vote

          They don't go as fast as you'd think or hope even downhill. Push bikes go WAY quicker than these and probably with equally less noise.

          •  

            @bchliu: Bikes fly passed me most days on the road so yeah the logic from the govt is flawed, they should maybe try use them and see that there is no real fuss.

      • +1 vote

        Technically the reverse, they're not banned explicitly, but they're not permitted as anything with a motor/wheels needs to be approved before it can be permitted. Scooters haven't had that permission granted most states yet, while they determine what is acceptable and what not.

        Scooters without a motor are fine.

        •  

          Also, the scooters aren't power assist. You only assist to start but then no assistance is required, which I don't think it legal in Australia. Electric bicycles must be pedal assist (as I understand it), If you don't pedal the electric motor doesn't work. If that isn't true let me know e-bike people.

          •  

            @bobvegas: A 200W or less eBike does not require any assistance and simply uses a throttle. But it still must be a bicycle, i.e have pedals, seat, etc

            •  

              @sheamas88: They really have to redefine the "200W" laws since 200W actually can mean so many things - battery usage, Electrical motor energy (motor voltage), torque efficiency etc. Not all 200W e-vehicles (eBikes, eScooters or the like) are the same.

          •  

            @bobvegas: Tell that to all the delivery rider bikes in Melbourne CBD they all have trigger activated e bikes

            •  

              @Melong: Was thinking the same. VIC government were reviewing the electric scooter laws in Decemeber. Hopefully will they will pass/enact something similar to QLD Laws soon.

        Im about 93kg's and carry full gym bag of BJJ gear wet and it seems just fine, the frame is solid as gave a go to one of the big boys in our place and it coped just fine, I've jumped off kerbs a few times transferring from different areas and it has been great.

    How would this go on dirt roads or grass/paddock? Would be handy for the work I do at music festivals, save so much walking!

    Does anyone have any experience using these in WA? Want to know if they’ve had any run ins with the law, or if the coppers are pretty relaxed?

    • +8 votes

      I have had an electric scooter in WA for 2 years. 2000km. No issues. I have 500w iMax S1+. Does 35 km per HR. Simple rule. Stay away from people and don't be a dick.

        So it’s legal to ride it on any foot path?

        • +1 vote

          not technically legal I think. Just that law enforcement isn’t really going to pick you up on it.

          •  

            @ts13: I seen a guy in newcastle doing 70 on the freeway recently , drawing attention we don't need. I cut through the CBD so have to be wary of cops, although there was a memorial day a few months ago and I passed through about 40 cops, cars, bikes, push bikes and they didn't bat an eyelid so who know.

      •  

        Thanks. Stay on footpaths or do you ever use the road? May seem like a dumb question - but when I used lime in France, it was actually a requirement that you DO use the road, not the footpath.

        •  

          Does this apply to the none electrical version as well? Or the None Electrical version can be used on footpath?

          •  

            @house2015: Can you please tell me what a non-electrical electric scooter is?

            •  

              @ts13: Just the normal one which pushes using ones own feet

              •  

                @house2015: I’m not sure if this is a serious question. You’re questioning the legality of a human powered, push along scooter?

                •  

                  @ts13: Sorry that is what i am asking actually, i know its a very silly question…………

                  •  

                    @house2015: Of course it’s legal. The mode of transport is comparable to a bicycle, skateboard, or a shopping trolley. Just that there are certain places where it’s inappropriate to take it. Like a shopping mall, a highway, or a tunnel…
                    Legality comes into issue, particularly when it’s a powered vehicle. The main issue is that you could potentially cause harm to other people or property - thus requiring registration which would probably provide some kind of compulsory third party insurance.

    Meh these have been sub $600 plenty of times

  •  

    I live in Melbourne and I remember the police gave big fines out regularly in 90’s for the tiny combustion motor scooters we had back in the day, could be an expensive ride if you get stopped by the police, I can tell you they do have the right to detain, confiscate and fine for an illegal road vehicle

    •  

      They've started rolling out sharing e-scooters in Melbourne, I saw them at St Kilda. Government was quoted as saying they're reviewing the footpath speed limit laws. I wouldn't ride these on the road with cars, the wheels are too small, less control if something goes wrong like when hitting a rock or bump.

    Does anyone know the difference in quality between the xiaomi m365 and the [bullet xct 85] (https://www.ebay.com.au/itm/Folding-Electric-Scooter-with-Xi...)?

    • +1 vote

      Bought a bullet scooter a while back, not the same in the picture. Battery died at 1,000km, poor design meant handle bar slippage couldn't be tightened unless I rip the whole display casing off. Wouldn't recommend bullet

    how is the warranty with gearbyte as Xiaomi Au is also selling at the same price? Is the customer support easy to deal with if there is a problem with Xiaomi scooter?
