I totally stop promoting ES1 ES2 and M365 models
Indeed I just found information of a massive recall of scooters LIME in the United States, the ES2 but also another model that can only be the M365, which have defective batteries, if you already have one I can only advise you to charge them correctly with the original charger, indeed the "juicers" surely use fast chargers and scooters of Lime are not maintained.
The real reason for the recall of scooters from LIME in France is mainly related to the defective batteries of the Segway ES2 or even the additional battery (ES4) that could catch fire
We find the information in more detail besides the Atlantic where the, it is quoted more than 2 000 removed gear, as well as the existence of another model meeting the same defect,
I think it's the M365 but I'm waiting for an answer on the defective ES2 serial number I asked LIME USA.
While Segway Europe does not communicate, there was a press release from Tony Ho Vice President Segway / Ninebot USA I can not access it I am not subscribed to Washington Post, there are several press articles
A massive recall has been ongoing for a few days in the United States
LIME accuses Segway Ninebot of the fault and Segway Ninebot accuses the misuse by the "juicers" (those who recharge the scooters) and the lack of maintenance of the fleet of scooters by LIME.
It is clear that Segway Europe, which is the main supplier of these self-service scooters on the old continent and LIME Europe will not communicate in this light about the current recall of scooters
There is a lot of lack of transparency on the part of Segway in general, it is a company that is in full success, Segway Ninebot Xiaomi ES2 & M365 scooters are selling well, especially in Europe, LIME has been advertising for the brand since it appears on the scooters self-service
If you want, Segway Ninebot is like children doing a pretty drawing, but to whom we ask, "Why did not you color it?" And the children's response is "It's over, I was especially eager to show it to you "
This is the big problem with this company is that the successful products are not completely finished in terms of security (remember about firmware V117 issue, and Mini bodyframe)
