You're worth it

4.7 out of 5 stars

In the words of that TV ad! This scooter is fantastic if you are able to afford it. Perhaps they are designed more for shopping centers etc but I use mine on normal pavements, up to London etc etc.

It's very lightweight so I can get it out the house on my own which makes me totally independent - which is priceless. I go on the bus or train and it folds easily into any car or mini-cab. If you buy the appropriate battery it can even fold up as hand luggage on a flight. I have taken mine on the coach - which is fine as long as you attach it with bungie ropes etc so it doesnt roll around in the luggage hold.

The only bad thing is the price - especially for a replacement battery. So make sure you look after the battery ie charge it regularly and according to instructions. It could also do with a more comfortable chair but that would probably make it heavier. So I do not sit in it for long periods - when I get on the bus/train I get out and transfer to a proper chair otherwise my back hurts after a while. I was worried about buying it from Germany but they are very helpful.
