Portashopper Portable Power Wheelchair
The Portashopper portable power wheelchair is a very small and lightweight folding power wheelchair. While not suitable for all day, every day use the portashopper is a excellent option for shopping trips and errands where a powered mobility device is needed for independent mobility.
The Portashopper is constructed of an aircraft aluminum alloy, weighs about 40 pounds and is avialble in 3 finishes (silver, bright yellow or burgundy).
There are two models available, Portashopper I with fixed arms and Portashopper II with flip-up arms.
The Portashopper is powered by a 24 volt lithium ion battery that can provide up to 15 km of driving on a 5 hour charge and is 60% lighter than conventional wheelchair batteries. For users who require more range a second battery can be purchased and carried in a holder mounted on the wheelchair.
A unique feature of this product is the availability of optional alternative battery chargers:
- Car charger - The car charger will provide a 95% charge in 2 hours and a full charge in 5 hours when plugged into a vehicle power outlet.
- Solar Charger - When set up facing the sun the solar charger will recharge the battery in 5 hours.
By having a spare battery the user can always have a battery charged while still being able to use the Portashopper.
