Mi M365 Electric Scooter – Safety Notice

Please select your region

Since our founding, Xiaomi has been dedicated to producing safe, affordable and quality products for our customers. We continue making this our top priority and act proactively to ensure that our users have real-time, comprehensive information regarding our products.

We have received limited reports in relation to potential safety issues associated with the Mi M365 Electric Scooter. Upon investigation, it appears that when not used in accordance with the Safety Reminder and Instructions in the user manual, or when subject to force, certain batches of the product manufactured with aluminum alloy hooks in the folding apparatus, may have the potential to fail and without appropriate maintenance, may cause a fall hazard to the rider.

We are launching a Safety Campaign to alert all customers. Specifically, we are publishing a Safety Notice and rolling out a Repair Program globally which provides free testing to the affected customers and also replaces the aluminum alloy hook with a stainless steel hook.

Safety Notice

The hook of the Mi M365 Electric Scooter manufactured between September 2017 and October 2018 is made of aviation grade aluminum alloy 6061-T6 which material is widely used for bicycle frames and components.

When the Mi M365 Electric Scooter is subject to overloading such as two people riding the scooter at any one time or subject to high impact movements, the aluminum alloy hook in the folding apparatus may weaken. Without appropriate maintenance, the aluminum alloy hook may fail during subsequent use which may lead the vertical component to fold into the main body while in use.

  • We ask all customers to take the steps below before using their Mi M365 Electric Scooters:

    Step 1:Follow the instructions below to check if your device has an aluminum-alloy buckle
  • Step 2:Follow the video shown below to conduct a thorough self-check of the device

Step 1: Check whether your device has an aluminum alloy hook

The folding apparatus is shown in the image below.

If the device appears to have an allen key bolt on one side and a round-shaped nut on the other side, then your device has a steel hook and is not affected.
If the device appears to have allen key bolts on both sides, your device comes with an aluminum alloy hook and is part of the repair program. Please enter the serial number and other required information in the section below to participate in the repair program.
