Super cheap Segway miniPro

We were huge fans of the Segway miniPro scooter and now it’s cheaper than ever. It may not look quite as cool as a hoverboard or boosted board, but the miniPro gets around. It packs great battery life and is the most fun we’ve had on two wheels in years.

Another bonus is the batteries don’t explode.
