Why is PW-999UL the Best Portable Wheelchair?

The total weight of this Foldawheel PW-999UL lightest power folding wheelchair is only 46 lbs. (21 kgs.) with one battery; it weighs 49.5 lbs. (22.5 kgs.) with two batteries. This purchase at comes with two batteries. Additional highlights include:

  • This electric power wheelchair opens and folds in just one second and fits easily in the trunk of a small car. The unit stands upright by itself after folding. Users can also roll it with wheels.
  • Foldawheel uses soft-pack polymer lithium-ion batteries (also known as pouch cell batteries) because they are safer, lighter and longer lasting compared to lower-cost cylinder lithium-ion batteries commonly sold on the market.
  • With a full charge, the PW-999UL electric foldable wheelchair can travel up to 15 miles (25 km.). Note: When testing the travel distance, Foldawheel normally tests with a user that weighs 220 lbs. (100 kgs.).
  • This folding power chair can handle heavier weights; however, Foldawheel states 220 lbs. as the weight capacity limit. The reason for this is that some users who exceed 220 lbs. may not sit as comfortably. (However, some of Foldawheel's happy users are over 264 lbs. Portability and comfort depend on what is important to the user, as well as user preference.)
  • Foldawheel's brushless motors are superior compared to similar market products. This is because these units operate with a higher torque. They are also energy-efficient and compact.
  • The innovative joystick controller is smaller and easier to control. It features a detachable cable system that allows the user to remove the joystick controller easily when checked in as luggage on airlines.
  • The frame is made of high-grade aircraft-quality aluminum alloy for a stronger yet lighter structure. This ensures both user safety and frame durability.
  • Both armrests can be raised to get closer to tables or for easier transfer to other surfaces.
  • The unique inward-folding footrests allow users to achieve the nearest stand-up and sit-down positions.
  • Patented anti-tilt support with a hydraulic system reduces the risk of falling backward, yet is flexible when needed.
  • The air-breeze seat cushions and backrest covers are made with a non-fray material for better durability. This allows more air to flow through and provides a better cushioning effect. The covers are detachable for washing purposes.
What else does this electric portable folding wheelchair come with?
  • A top-quality certified charger (100V-230V) that can be used anywhere in the world.
