I was thinking about going from the smallest to the most powerful scooter, but I just have to start with the Q-Mini. This is one of the fastest, most versatile, most well-built folding electric scooters currently available.
More robust than EcoReco M5, more portable than UberScoot, more suited for adults than any of the Razors, more affordable than IMAX S1+, Qmini is fast, strong, with a surprising amount of power packed into such a compact design. With brushless 500W motor it can reach the top speed of 35 mph, which is faster than any similar size folding scooter. There are three gears on this scooter and in third gear you will be blasting really, really fast. So make sure you always wear helmet and preferably a set of pads.
48V 16Ah lithium battery has enough juice for traveling up to 38 miles. I don’t know if it’s due to the large capacity of the battery, or the quality of the charger, but is if the battery is completely drained it takes 8-12 hours for a full charge. However, the full battery gives you an excellent range, so you will almost never have to worry about battery if you charge it overnight.
Ride over bumps on the road is smooth thanks to the dual shocks on the front and dual shock suspension angled at 45° on the rear. 8 inch tires are solid, meaning you won’t have to worry about flat tires, or correct tire pressure. This scoter is sturdy and stable, so you won’t get any shaking or wobbling even at higher speeds.
Qmini is jam packed with features that make it a real high-end ride. Headlights and tail lights will provide better visibility on night rides, and there is a set of blinking, multi-color LEDs along the sides, that will make you look like a carnival ride.
There are couple of flaws, to be fair. First one are definitely the brakes. They will take you to a stop, but it takes some time to get used them. The charger feels very cheap, and just doesn’t match the overall quality of the scooter. And that rainbow blinking light-show along the sides of the deck is simply horrendous in my opinion, but I guess it’s a matter of personal preference.
If you have never had an electric scooters you will not be disappointed with Qiewa Qmini. If you have ever owned any of the mid-range or cheap electric scooters chances are you will fall in love with this scooter from the first ride, because there is truly nothing like it.
