With a healthy 300 lb. weight capacity, a charge range of 15 miles with upgraded batteries and a top speed of 4.25 mph, this is just the right product for your on-the-go lifestyle.

But before making your first trip, you need to keep in mind some safety tips. As follows:
- Inspect the battery pack and connection. Make sure they are secured properly and not corroded.

- Never put your scooter on freewheel mode when standing on an inclined plane. It can cause an accident.
- Never try to pass the scooter over a notable obstacle greater than the maximum allowable ground clearance.
- Do not ever try to operate your portable scooter on stairs or escalators. This could be very harmful.
