Really helping me out at a time of need
4 July 2017
The first one I was sent had a problem with the battery and just wouldn't work; however Amazon were really helpful in sorting out a replacement. The second one works as expected. It is a bit noisy (my work colleagues say it's like hearing the TARDIS before Dr Who arrives!) but it is helping me commute the short distance to and from work each day whilst I'm suffering from an illness.
I would say that I'm at the top end of the weight limit, and much heavier when I'm carrying my heavy work handbag, and it does cut out on steep hills but that is to be expected as I'm asking too much from a child's scooter. It does feel like I'm speeding along on the flat though. I would say that the hand break isn't very effective and I tend to just take my hand off the throttle and put my feet down to stop. I charge it every 2-3 days and it never takes more than a few hours for the charger to go from red to green, so I wouldn't let the '12 hour' time to charge put you off.
Overall it's really helping me out at a time of need. If it's for a child I would say to make sure that they're tall enough to put their feet on the floor from the seated position - my seven year old nephew tried it and scared me half to death as he had no control!
