How long does the battery last?
I've never ran out. If I put it on the charger every night it will run the whole next day. The charger is small enough you can put it in a backpack just in case too which is nice.

Personal Opinion:

The biggest drawback is its size. It's the biggest one on the US market and I only weigh 95 lbs (43kg) so feel tiny in it. It's hard to manoeuvre in small spaces and weighing in at around 400 lbs (181.4kg) I was unable to find a carrier they would hold it's weight for transport. Even the 500 lb weight limit carriers bottomed out going over bumps so it's not safe to transport unless you have a wheelchair van, use public transportation or have a ramp system to get it into a pick up truck.

As far as benefits, this thing is a beast. It opened up my life to the outdoors. I can go through grass, over gravel, up and down hills, down walking paths in parks and over exposed tree roots no problem. It doesn't go up steps but does clear about anything under 3 inches. It even plows over light snow (maybe one or two inches) with the Tilt and recline function it has been a real life saver as a chronic pain patient. I can lift the legs, change the dump, and recline with the push of a button. I don't have the seat elevator but I believe that would open even more doors in life. Other than the massive size and the inability to transport it in a standard vehicle I've had no drawbacks. So far no repairs have been needed and the only things I would add if money wasn't an option would be lights and a seat elevator. It's a really sturdy and reliable chair/boat.
