The UltraLite 480 Portable Mobility Scooter is an excellent all-round choice. Stable, comfortable, reliable, and travel ready, it offers the mobility you need and the portability you want at a price you’ll like.
Size, maneuverability, & ride:
The UltraLite 480 is small enough to be exceptionally maneuverable but its 4-wheel base makes it extremely stable. It corners well and the steering is responsive, so it’s good in tight spaces. It provides very comfortable transport on most surfaces and even on rough surfaces the padded seat does an admirable job of minimizing rider jarring. It excels on the sidewalk, in a shopping mall, or traversing a car park.
Comfort & accessibility:
This scooter is engineered for accessibility. The fully-padded seat has detachable armrests and it swivels to make getting on and off easier. The base is long enough to provide plenty of legroom, and the control panel is simple and clearly illustrated. The lever controls are sensitive and easy to operate, a must for users with arthritic hands.
Battery & capacity:
The UltraLite 480 will accommodate up to 250 pounds, though at maximum capacity it does slow down slightly when traveling up slopes. It has a range of at least 8 miles between battery charges and the battery meter is clearly visible so you don’t get any unpleasant surprises. The battery can be charged onboard or off, and a complete charge takes about 6 hours.
The UltraLite 480 is very portable, breaking down in seconds to a compact size that can easily be transported in a car boot or stored in a very small space. It can even be stored vertically if necessary. Dismantling the scooter is very simple and all the segments are light enough to be easily lifted by one person.
