Congratulations on making the first step!
Now, for the harder part: you have to now assemble your escooter on your own. For those who are afraid that they are going to mess things up, don't be.
We have created a fuss-free and simple guide to bring you through this installation and activation process. In fact, it is not as complicated as it seems:
The first tip for any DIY/installation project is to check through all the inventory and make sure you got all the things you need.
For the ES2, these are the items you should be getting in your box:
- Main frame
- Screws (attached to the handlebar in a bag)
- Battery charger
- 3 pin plug
- Hex wrench
A word of caution: try not to scratch anything when you take everything out of the box.
Release the escooter stem by pushing on the rear guard. To fully unfold, push the stem all the way up until you hear a 'click' sound. This indicates that your ES2 is fully unfolded. To make it stand on its own, push down the kickstand.
Take out the tab from the top of the ES2 main frame. Look into the interior of the stem and you should see a blue-tipped black wire. Pick up the escooter handlebar – there's a blue-tipped black wire inside as well.
Connect both wire ends together, making sure that the arrows on the wires align. Next, insert the handlebar into the top of the ES2 stem, making sure that the orientation is correct (the ES2's front light should be facing away from the escooter.)
For this step, you'll need four screws (find them in the small translucent plastic bag) and a hex wrench.
Attach the screws into the ES2 mainframe below the handlebar on both sides. At this stage, make sure that you only partially tighten the screws.
When all four screws are inserted and partially tightened, you can now tighten all the screws to totally secure them.
Congrats – you now have a fully assembled escooter!
Before you start anything, prepare these items for the electric scooter activation to go smoothly:
- Your ES2 escooter (that's fully assembled)
- Your phone
- A strong WiFi/4G + bluetooth connection
The Segway-Ninebot app allows you to configure your ES2 and have other uses such as controlling its speed.
You can find the application in the Google Play store and the Apple App store. It is free for download.
When you switch on your ES2 for the very first time, it should have a constant beeping sound. Don't worry, this doesn't indicate that there's anything wrong with your escooter.
Ensure that your bluetooth connection is turned on. Go to your Segway-Ninebot app and find your ES2 in the application. Click it and do a firmware update.
Next, enter your email address and activate your ES2.
