This is one of our most recent chair to be added to our winning line up. It replaces the LITH-TECH Light Chair 1 as our companies go to extremely light weight and portable chair.
From customer feedback it’s becoming clearer and clearer that customers nowadays are wanting smaller, lighter and stronger chairs than ever which they can easily take anywhere with them. This is the chair on the market that ticks every box and more.
For starters it’s the worlds smallest/most compact folding electric power chair and also the lightest electric wheelchair that can actually be used as an everyday wheelchair and not just a travel chair in the world. The Compact weighs only 19kg, 21kg with its 2 x 6ah lithium batteries included which can be removed in seconds. The fact that it is so small means it is far easier than any other electric folding wheelchair to lift into a car as its shape is less awkward now meaning that even older and disabled people can now lift it themselves into a car with or without batteries depending on how able bodied they are. (See our video of a 5ft, 67 year old lady lifting it with the batteries straight into her boot, she has never found a chair on the market she can carry)
The batteries take around 6 hours to fully charge through the joystick and boast a range of 15 miles per charge, which is excellent for such small, lightweight batteries. These plane safe batteries can also be removed in seconds and charged directly into them through an adaptor which is a huge selling point.
The compact recliner is very practical and the sort of chair you can either pop to the shops in or take on a train or coach to London with you and its absolutely ideal for taking on a plane to continue your freedom wherever you are in the world. (Note – under the new transport and safety rules very few electric wheelchair batteries on the market actually qualify)
For extra user features and comfort you can have the back rest in two positions, upright or reclining and this chair can even come with a headrest. (at an added cost)
Both armrest’s fully extent vertically so you can get under tables to eat or do work or even just to make getting in and out of the chair much more easier.
The motors are 230w per side and also brushless which is the best in the business aiding you when changing direction quickly, taking hills but also meaning that when the chairs motors are not engaged the wheels run very free so you can be pushed in it easily or tow or push the chair with huge ease from a folded position instead of carrying it.
The compact comes with a charger, two batteries, a battery adaptor for off chair charging and a tool kit and user manual, watch the below video for more.
