With these gas prices, owning an electric-powered vehicle seems more like a sound idea. While EVs are way more expensive and e-bikes can be a little daunting, why not own something more affordable and easy to store? That something can be the new Xiaomi Electric Scooter 4 Pro.
The Xiaomi Electric Scooter 4 Pro boasts a robust and easy-to-store design. It is about 60mm taller and 68mm longer than the Pro 2. It is also foldable and boasts a strong yet light aerospace-grade aluminum alloy material.
Under the hood, the new scooter offers a maximum power of 700W, a 25kmph of max speed, and a 20% incline climb.
The power is delivered to the 10-inch Xiaomi DuraGel tires, which are tubeless and self-sealing.
For usability, the new scooter has three-speed modes, which you can easily switch to by double-tapping the power button. There’s the 0-6kmph mode if you’re just strolling, D mode for 0-20kmph, and S mode for 0-25kmph speeds.
The power comes from the large 446Wh battery, which could last for up to 45km on a single charge.
Speaking of charging, the Xiaomi Electric Scooter 4 Pro comes with a convenient magnetic charging port that has a lid to keep it safe.
The scooter also has features to help protect the battery. Dubbed as the 5th Gen smart BMS, the scooter has overcurrent protection, short circuit protection, double protection from overcharging, temperature protection, double protection from over-discharging, and under-voltage auto-sleep protection.
Xiaomi also rigged it with an upgraded kinetic energy recovery system (KERS). Essentially, it gains battery charge every time you brake or do non-powered coasting.
