The price of a mini segway is not the main factor you should have in mind when looking for one of this devices. Before you buy a self balancing scooter, minisegway or hoverboard, it is a good idea to make sure that the unit has a Samsung Battery. Also, keep in mind that there are different wheel sizes: you can find 6.5, 8, and 10 inch wheels. Lastly, not all the self balancing scooters can take the same weight. Some have a limit of 220, while others can take up to 260 pounds. This one in particular comes with a Samsung battery, 6.5 inch wheels and takes up to 260 pounds. The important thing is to know the features you want and not to focus only on price but on value, considering not only the unit you are getting but the support and warranty should you ever need it.
