All the scooters we provide come with their tyres inflated right out of the box. This is a great start but its important to maintain the correct tyre pressure to get the best riding experience(grip, suspension and puncture resistence) tyre pressures be set according to the user weight.
Most scooters use Schrader valve ( as found on car tyres) but we heavily recommend against using petrol station air pumps as they will not get you the desired pressure needed.
We recommend you use the good ol trusty bike pump (foot pump). On scooters like the Xiaomi mijia m365 you will also need to use the included extended nozzle adapter which is crucial to use on the front wheel valve to accurately inflate the tyres.

more volts = more power
As a rule of thumb the more volts a scooter has the more power the scooter can deliver to the motor which will increase the RPM. The voltage is made up from 12Voltt segments hence you always see 24V, 36V, 48V or 60V listed on scooter description.
A.H Amp Hours/Amperes
You will certainly come across this when looking over the specification of a scooter, what it relates to is the total capacity of the battery. The higher the AH number the greater the range between charges.
Electric Scooters usually come with a small amount of charge. We advise fully charging prior to first use.
