I. Introduction


When it comes to electric skateboards, Meepo is an established manufacturer known for high quality and reliable products. The Meepo Mini 2S is one of the smaller electric skateboards from Meepo, which is a major player in the electric skateboard world. In this review we will take a closer look at the Meepo Mini 2S and find out what it has to offer.


Why choose the Meepo Mini 2S?


The Meepo Mini 2S is a silent electric skateboard perfect for urban spaces. It's lightweight and easy to transport, making it ideal for your daily commute. In addition, it offers a balanced mix of speed, range and control, making it a great board for both beginners and intermediates. What is still to be discovered, we will now clarify in our review.



II. Deck


The deck of the Meepo Mini 2S consists of 8 layers of Canadian maple and is 30 inches (76.2 cm) long and 9 inches (22.86 cm) wide. It is very stiff and prevents any sagging. It's rather small compared to most electric longboards, but this allows for better maneuverability and a smaller turning circle - especially beneficial in urban terrain. However, you also feel more vibrations because the stiff deck completely absorbs the unevenness of the floor.


Due to its size, the Mini 2S is particularly suitable for children - for adults, the small area of ​​the deck can be uncomfortable in the long run.




The shape of the deck is shaped similar to a bowl, which offers improved control and a firmer footing. Such a shape is particularly advantageous on shorter decks, as it allows for a good footing and a better driving experience despite the limited space. The board is also very easy to steer and manoeuvre.


The design of the Meepo Mini 2S is kept simple and minimalist. Only the Meepo logo and the directional arrow can be seen on the top of the deck. Accessories such as LED lighting or handles are not available as standard, but can be retrofitted as an option.




If you regularly ride your e-skateboard in the dark, attaching shred lights* can be a great accessory to increase safety on your ride. With their easy installation, they are a valuable investment that not only provides additional visibility in low light conditions, but also during the day. They also give your board a stylish look.


Overall, the deck of the Meepo Mini 2S offers a good combination of stiffness, control and maneuverability. However, the vibrations can be a little uncomfortable over long distances.




III. Wheels


The Meepo Mini 2S comes standard with 90mm 78A polyurethane road wheels that are roadworthy and offer average grip. These wheels are designed for urban terrain and should not be used for off-road riding.


However, there is also an option to swap out the wheels: the board is compatible with Meepo's new 105mm Donut Cloudwheels*, which offer slightly better vibration dampening. With these wheels you can also cope with larger bumps and cracks in the ground, which makes driving much more comfortable.

IV. Engine


The Meepo Mini 2S features a dual 540W hub motor. Unlike belt drives, hub drives are integrated into the wheels and are therefore better protected against dirt and debris - which means they also require less maintenance.


Acceleration on the Mini 2S is strong and be prepared for the board to have plenty of power when accelerating. Experience has shown that electric skateboards with hub drives are a bit weaker, but you can easily fall if you are not careful.

The manufacturer specifies a maximum speed of 46 kilometers per hour. We were able to confirm this in the test, so it is indeed a very fast board. However, in most cases you will slow down to ensure you remain in control at all times.


Compared to other shortboards, the Meepo Mini 2S is one of the strongest - for classification: it's slightly weaker than the WowGo Mini 2, but slightly stronger than the Teamgee H20 Mini. However, it is important to note that this is just a comparison and the Mini 2S excels in many other aspects.



V battery


The Meepo Mini 2S electric skateboard comes with a Samsung 40T battery configured in a 10s2p setup. This battery has a capacity of 8AH and 288Wh. The same battery is also used in the new NLS Pro model. A typical 4.0Ah 144Wh set-up is used for the base model of the Mini 2S.


The range of the base Mini 2S model is 17km, which is suitable for short trips in the area. The realistic range for a 70kg driver is about 15km. If you're willing to shell out $170 more, you can upgrade to the ER version, which the manufacturer says offers a range of up to 20 miles. Here, too, a range of 32km is realistic for a 70kg driver.

VI. ESC and remote control


The ESC (Electronic Speed ​​Controller) and remote controller are crucial to control the electric skateboard. The ESC of the Meepo Mini 2S is manufactured by Hobbywing and is called LY-FOC 1.0 ESC.


Manufacturer and special properties


Hobbywing is a well-known manufacturer of ESCs and is often used in the RC model building scene, but also by many electric skateboard manufacturers such as Meepo. The new LY-FOC 1.0 ESC offers a smooth and precise driving behavior, the acceleration and braking curve is very smooth, enabling a comfortable driving experience. The Mini 2S has three different driving modes that can be selected via the remote control - Beginner mode for beginners, Standard mode and Advanced mode for experienced drivers. The ESC also has some useful extra features. For example, there is a reverse gear that makes maneuvering in tight spaces easier.

Remote control


The remote control is the new NR Remote,* which has a completely different design than the previous model. It is shaped like a boomerang and is therefore a bit strange in the hand at first. The remote control can be paired with all Hobbywing ESCs and has a flashlight that makes driving at night easier. The twist grip throttle is large, springy and comfortable to use. One disadvantage, however, is that the remote control does not fit into your pocket as easily as you are used to from conventional remote controls.

Insgesamt ist das ESC des Meepo Mini 2S sehr benutzerfreundlich und bietet einige nützliche Overall, the Meepo Mini 2S ESC is very user-friendly and offers some useful extra features. The remote control is well designed and makes it easy to control the skateboard.



VII. Conclusion


The Meepo Mini 2S is a small and manoeuvrable electric skateboard that is particularly easy to ride in urban areas. It offers a good combination of stiffness, control and maneuverability, but the vibrations can be a little uncomfortable over long distances. The unique selling point is clearly the strong motorization, which seems almost unusual for a hub drive.


The wheels are street-ready, but there's an option to swap them out for Meepo's new 105mm Donut Cloudwheels, which offer better vibration dampening and make riding on uneven surfaces more comfortable. The Meepo Mini 2S features a dual 540W hub motor that offers strong acceleration but also requires some caution. The maximum speed is 46 km/h, but most drivers will slow down to stay in control.
