Kickstart Your Ride: A Guide on How to Start Your Mi Electric Scooter 1S

One of the most popular electric scooters on the market, the Xiaomi Mi Electric Scooter 1S, boasts a sleek design and efficient performance. With its lightweight frame, powerful motor, and easy maneuverability, it's no wonder that users are eager to get their Mi Electric Scooter 1S up and running. This article will guide you on how to assemble, charge, and start your scooter, as well as provide some helpful tips to ensure a smooth and safe ride.

Step 1: Assemble the Mi Electric Scooter 1S
Begin by unfolding the scooter and securing the handlebar stem in place. You can easily do this by swinging the stem up and snapping it into the latch on the rear fender. Once the stem is in place, tighten the latch to ensure stability.

Step 2: Charge the Scooter
Before starting your Mi Electric Scooter 1S, it's essential to charge the battery fully. Connect the charger to the charging port located at the bottom of the scooter and plug it into a power outlet. The LED indicator on the charger will turn red, indicating that the battery is charging. It will turn green once the battery is fully charged, which typically takes around 5-6 hours.

Step 3: Power On the Scooter
Locate the power button on the handlebar's top portion and press and hold it for a few seconds. The LED display will light up, showing that the scooter is now powered on. Release the button once the display is active.

Step 4: Select your Riding Mode
The Mi Electric Scooter 1S features two riding modes: ECO mode and Standard mode. ECO mode provides a more energy-efficient ride with a reduced top speed, while Standard mode allows for a faster and more dynamic riding experience. To switch between these modes, short-press the power button twice. The LED display will indicate your selected mode with a single 'S' for Standard mode or no text for ECO mode.

Step 5: Kickstart and Accelerate
To start your Mi Electric Scooter 1S, place one foot on the scooter's deck and use your other foot to give a gentle kick, propelling the scooter forward. Once it starts rolling, press the throttle on the right handlebar to accelerate. The scooter will now begin to pick up speed. You can also use the left handlebar's brake lever to slow down or stop the scooter when needed.

As you embark on your journey with the Mi Electric Scooter 1S, remember to always wear a helmet and obey local traffic laws. With a little practice, you'll be cruising around effortlessly in no time.
