However, if you prefer a 3-Wheel version, the Phoenix HD Travel Scooter comes in that version too, which is 5kgs/11lbs lighter and comes in smaller dimensions.
Lightweight and adjustable
The total weight of the scooter is 132 pounds: the base weighs 77.6 pounds, the seat – 23.8 pounds, and the battery - 30.6 pounds. The overall dimensions are 41.5"×21.7" ×38.0".
However, Drive Medical has considered the different needs and preferences of its users, so apart from creating this balanced device, the company has developed this product to be highly-adjustable and compact.
The users of the scooter are often traveling, consequently, they need to constantly assemble and disassemble their products. For this cause, the Phoenix HD 4-Wheel Travel Scooter can be disassembled into four different pieces: the front section, the seat, the rear section and the battery; without the use of any tools. Each of the pieces is easy to be carried and can fit into your car, truck or van.
Furthermore, in order to provide a comfortable ride for each of the users, Drive Medical has designed the Scooter to be easily adjusted to various needs. For instance:
- Adjustable seat
In order to adjust the seat height, you need to remove it from the scooter, remove the pin lock, adjust up to your desired height, insert the locking pin once again and replace the seat.
The rotation of the seat can be done in at 45 degrees intervals. This can be achieved with swiveling the seat by pushing the seat adjustment lever and locking it in place. However, the seat must always be in a forward position while driving.
- Adjustable Tiller
Another possibility is to adjust the tiller according to your needs and style. There are numerous positions for this position; you just need to loosen the knob, adjust, and tighten the knob once you are done.
Safety and security features
When it comes to security, Drive Medical has paid more than enough attention. The Phoenix HD 4-Wheel Travel Scooter comes with several features referring to safety.
- Engaged and Freewheel mode
The Freewheel mode is designed in order to provide manual movement. More exactly, instead of using the engaged mode to drive the scooter by motor power, you are able to pull the lever up and move your device manually.
- Flat-free tires & Anti-tip wheels
The combination of the flat-free tires and anti-tip wheels provide possibilities to go uphill, take sharp turns, and simultaneously decrease the possibility of an accident.
- Electromagnetic brake
In order to brake, you need to release the speed control lever, which automatically activates the brake. In order to stop, you need to repeat the same process, just release the control lever completely.
- Horn Button
The horn is very useful when you need to signalize other participants in the traffic, warn them or simply become more detectable. This part of the Scooter can increase your safety level and decrease the chances for an accident.
- Battery indicator
The battery indicator uses the red, yellow and green color to show the remaining power on your Scooter. The green color indicates that you have 40-100% capacity, the yellow 10-30%, and the red one indicates that you need an immediate recharge.
- Main Circuit Breaker (Reset Button)
There is a possibility for the break to trip and cause an electronic or motor damage. For this cause, Drive Medical has inserted the main circuit breaker rest button, which shuts the whole scooter down.
However, in order to gain these benefits, you must act according to the commendations of safety:
- Act accordingly to the pedestrian laws
- Get to know how the Scooter operates before including yourself in traffic
- Do not carry anyone on the scooter
- Do not carry goods heavier than seven pounds (which is the max weight of the basket)
- Check the functionality of your scooter daily
Battery and charging
In order to ensure maximum range, you need to recharge the batteries each time you use the scooter. In case you don't use it, you still need to charge the batteries at least once a week.
When it comes to the battery range, it is normal to be reduced in the winter time. Moreover, the battery range decreases with time. Even if you use it properly, you will have to replace the batteries with brand new ones, when their capacity reaches 50% compared to the original one.
There are two ways to charge the Phoenix HD 4-Wheel Travel Scooter: onboard charging and off board charging. The charging process lasts about six hours, yet a 10-hour charging provides the optimum performance.
How to maximize battery efficiency?
The PHOENIX HD 4 is powered by two sealed lead-acid deep-cycle batteries (12 V 20ah). You can perform a few actions in order to maximize the service life of the battery. For instance, you need to fully charge new batteries, before you use them. The battery life shortens when it is not fully charged, so prefer to completely charge it each time. The charging is complete only when the red light turns green.
Furthermore, the battery life is affected by dust, water, and multiple other substances, so each user is required to clean the batteries once in a while.
