How long does the battery last?
14hrs according to paperwork - have done full day/evening out covering long distances including rough terrain and hills and never been let down.
Comfortable, even for long periods due to cushion and back rest options, footplates have been changed height and angle to make it more comfortable and so feet don’t slip. Side panels stop the cushion and myself from moving, and the arm rests/joystick are well positioned for comfort and ease of steering. - Huge variety of options for seating, backrest and footplates which may affect how much the chair ‘dismantles’ Therefore whether it can be used for a car hoist - my back rest completely removes, however I am unsure if there are any that do not remove/fold meaning WAV would be needed.
Fits in very small spaces as the steering is very easy and spins on the spot - I can get around very tight ‘hairpin’ bends and narrow doorways in our house, very tight spaces or sharp turns in public.
Works well in both WAV and with a hoist into the boot of a car (personally use ford b-max).
Always feel incredibly secure, safe and comfortable on steep hills/slopes in all directions, up/down small steps/kerbs, uneven surfaces/rough terrain/cobbles due to suspension and it being well balanced.
I feel incredibly safe meaning I am now going out with friends and independently for the first time as I know it won’t let me down, I won’t get stuck or not be able to go up a hill, ‘off road’ etc I have had other chairs that have not worked for me and have broken down or felt very unstable and uncomfortable, however I feel incredibly safe, comfortable and free in this wheelchair.
I would definitely recommend.
(I have pediatric size chair as I am a very petite 22yo female, however I know there is an adult version of this chair which as far as I am aware is the same, just slightly larger seat, higher up etc)
