Segway mini lite gone for a swim in the sea


Recommended Posts

Hi, Santa delivered my son a mini lite for Christmas. On his first run out (he’s used them several times before at holiday parks), he got spooked by something and came of the Segway. 

Unfortunatly the Segway carried on into the sea. We think the device was in the sea for under a minute. Segway is now completely dead. 


Any advice or is it destined for the bin? As you can imagine the little lad is very upset. 

Any help greatly appreciated.

You're going to need to open it up, disconnect the battery, and dry it out. Salt water? You might be able to salvage the motors, but electricity and salt water pretty much puts an end to electronics.  Why the heck did a novice think riding next to water was a good idea?
