How Far can an Electric Wheelchair Go?


For many people living with a disability or mobility issues, an electric wheelchair can represent freedom and independence in their day to day lives. They enable users to go about their day by themselves, without carers or anyone to assist them, and for many, they're the answer to living life without relying on anyone else. Whether it's a trip to the supermarket or a simple day out in the local park, a motorized wheelchair takes a lot of stress and strain away from the user. 


If you're new to electric wheelchairs, and you're looking to purchase your first one, then there are a few things you should consider before making any decisions. For example, is the wheelchair comfortable? Does it fit your shape? Will the battery accommodate your travelling needs? Always ensure you ask these questions before purchasing an electric wheelchair. 

So, how far can an electric wheelchair go?

Many of our customers ask "how far can an electric wheelchair go?" , and the simple answer is that each electric wheelchair differs from the others we have in stock. A lot of factors go into the distance an electric wheelchair can go, such as the weight of the user, their driving style, and the surfaces on which the electric wheelchair is used the most. 


On average, most of our electric wheelchairs have a range of 10 miles or less on a fully charged battery. Some of the more expensive wheelchairs, however, can go as far as 20 miles on a fully charged battery. For example, most of Maidesite wheelchairs can go to 20 miles, because Maidesite is a professional wheelchair manufacturer, customers can enjoy affordable prices.


In order to find out exactly how far your model can travel before purchasing it, check out the manufacturer specifications. Here you will find all of the information you need on how far your electric wheelchair can travel. Some things can deteriorate the distance an electric wheelchair can follow, such as poorly charging the batter, using the battery for longer than you should, or driving in cold and wet conditions consistently. In order to take care of the batter on your electric wheelchair, ensure it is charged correctly and safely as this will ensure its longevity. 

You should also be careful of over-use, especially when the battery is low on your electric wheelchair. This can sometimes damage the battery itself, as can charging it for extended amounts of time such as overnight. 


Before committing to your electric wheelchair, take into considering these points, and make sure you read reviews in order to get a good idea of whether the model is the best choice for you.
