About the Chair 

This is the smallest Electric Folding chair to be added to our winning lightweight wheelchair line-up  It is currently the worlds smallest and most compact folding electric wheelchair.  

From customer feedback it’s clear that people nowadays are wanting smaller, lighter and stronger chairs. They also want a chair that is very portable which they can easily take anywhere with them. 

This compact folding electric power chair is not only small but is also one of the lightest electric wheelchairs we offer (at only 19kg without the batteries and 21kg with the batteries) it makes it incredibly easy to lift into a car. The compact is designed to be used as an everyday wheelchair (within reason) and not just a travel chair (However if you want to use your wheelchair outdoors mainly, you will need a multi terrain wheelchair) Like our LITH-TECH SMART CHAIR or SMART CHAIR X [any wheelchair that is much lighter in weight and has small wheels will never be as capable as a heavier chair with larger wheels]

For extra user features and comfort, you can have the back rest in two positions, upright or reclining at 30 degrees. This wheelchair is compatible with the LITH-TECH headrest which can be added to your chair.

Both armrests fully extend vertically so you can get under tables to eat, do work, or just get in and out of the chair much easier.

Battery Life

The batteries take around 6 hours to fully charge through the joystick and boast a range of upto 14 miles per charge, which is excellent for such small, lightweight batteries. These batteries are compliant to air travel regulations for every airline provider worldwide.

These plane-safe batteries can also be removed in seconds and are easy to charge which is a huge bonus. Simply plug the charger directly into them through an adaptor.

Practical Features

Its dimensions are as follows:

Folded: 570mm x 270mm x 660mm

Unfolded: 920mm x 570mm x 860mm

The LITH-TECH Compact wheelchair weighs only 19kg, 21kg with its 2 x 6ah lithium batteries included which can be removed in seconds.

Storage and Moving

The fact that it is so small means it is far easier than other electric folding wheelchairs to lift into and out of a car. 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, before now she has never found a wheelchair on the market she can carry.

Who is this Chair for?

Light enough and compact enough to carry by those using the wheelchair, the Compact mobility chair is the ideal fit for independent individuals. This very practical, lightweight electric wheelchair has a sleek design that you can take anywhere.

The Compact recliner wheelchair is very practical and is the sort of chair you can either pop to the shops in or take on a train or coach to London. It is absolutely ideal for taking on a plane to continue your freedom wherever you are in the world.

This chair excels around the home, care homes, shopping centres, beach promenades, around parks, cruise ships, flying, etc

Not really to be used in really rugged types of environments (You will need a smart chair for this) or taller people.


Extra Information

The motors are 200w per side and are brushless, which is the best in the business. Being brushless also means that when the chair’s motors are not engaged and you are in freewheel mode, 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 having to carrying it.

The Compact comes with:

  • Battery charger
  • Two batteries
  • Battery adaptor for charging
  • Tool kit
  • User manual
