Just thought I would give you a little feedback on the ‘Luggie’ (now nicknamed Elvis) I purchased in October.
I gave it a thorough test on a recent trip to Tasmania for a couple of weeks. It has been totally brilliant and to date has far exceeded any expectations I had when I bought it from Bellevue Medical in Albury. I have gone up hill, down hill, on different types of gravel paths in parks and gardens, on ferries, through shopping centres, into tight spots in cafes (weaving in between tables and chairs), in and out of shops and store lifts etc. and it has been marvellous. It is extremely easy to use and does not draw heavily on battery power at all – after a full days use, there is the equivalent power left on the battery to do it all over again. Recharging the battery is surprisingly quick, never taking more than an hour to an hour and a half at most when I am home. Transporting it and loading/unloading it from the car boot is simple and no more hassle than putting a bag in the back of the car. Folding and unfolding it is a breeze and took my husband about the same time it took me to get out of the car at any destination – a minute or two at most. By the time I got to the back of the car, my buggy was waiting.
When using it I feel like I am just the same as any other pedestrian who is out and about and have found that it causes no inconvenience to others when moving in crowded spaces.
I would recommend this scooter to anyone thinking of purchasing one. Its versatility, portability and stability is excellent.
