eFOLDi Mobility Scooter FAQ’s

What is eFOLDi?

eFoldi is the world’s most compact, lightweight, and versatile personal electric vehicle (PeV). It is so marvellously engineered that it can be neatly folded into a case for easy transport and storage as well as into a chair to rest on. eFoldi makes getting around easy and fun!

Would eFOLDi suit me?

We highly recommend you use our free at home demonstration service to determine suitability for your individual needs.

How easy is i tto Fold & Unfold?

Very. Your eFoldi will arrive pre-tuned and ready to use, but it’s a wise move to precede your first venture with a good look at our eFoldi user manual, which contains useful and important operation and maintenance information. If you have an aversion to directions, at least watch the eFoldi demo video. It’s easy!

How much weight can the eFOLDi carry?

eFoldi has been tested carrying 120 kilograms (260 pounds/19 stone), and it functioned admirably. Technically, however, it’s designed for a maximum weight of 150 kilograms (330 pounds/23.6 stone).

Is it easy to put into my car boot?

If you remove the battery, eFoldi weighs only 15 kilograms (33 pounds), much lighter than the holiday suitcases that people are accustomed to putting into their car boot. Even if you don’t remove the battery, eFoldi weighs less than 37 pounds. And when folded, eFOLDi is a neat and tidy suitcase shape, so should fit into the boot with ease – or even in front of the rear seats.

How fast will eFOLDi go?

eFOLDi has a speed-limiter (a legal requirement) that holds it to 6 kilometres (4 miles) per hour on pavements and 12 kilometres (8 miles) per hour on roads.

Can the eFOLDi climb a steep hill?

We’ve thoroughly tested eFoldi with a robust load of 150 kilograms (330 pounds/23.6 stone), and it easily handles a 1:5 slope (a slope that rises one vertical foot as it travels five horizontal feet). The high quality motor and powerful battery make sure that even steep hills like this are a breeze on an eFOLDi.

Can I go off-road on my eFOLDi?

Well, it depends on exactly how off the road is. Thanks to its 12-inch-diameter front wheel and 10-inch-diameter rear wheels, Efoldi boasts impressive stability and a ground clearance of 12 centimeters (4.72 inches). So it can navigate some pretty rugged terrain and is perfectly happy on grass, unmade roads and rough paths in parks etc.

Will my eFOLDi be safe in the rain?

Yes. eFOLDi is equipped with mud guards and is designed to be water-resistant. The battery box is sealed water-tight so it is safe to use in the rain.

How long will my eFOLDi battery last?
We offer two battery packs:

    • The FarReach battery pack (which comes as standard in the eFOLDi) is designed for long range, weighs 1.8 kilograms (3.9 pounds), and can take you up to 22 kilometres (14 miles) on a full charge. Quite remarkable for such a lightweight, versatile machine!
    • The AirSafe battery pack is allowed for air travel, weighs 1.1 kilograms (2.4 pounds) A fantastic range for when you’re travelling!

Can I take my eFOLDi on a plane?

Yes, but regulations based upon why you are using your eFoldi dictate which battery is permitted.

    • If you use your eFoldi as a personal e-vehicle for commuting but are not disabled, the largest Li-ion battery pack you may bring on a flight is 100 Wh. The AirSafe battery (24V, 4Ah), which is 96 Wh, qualifies as legal for everyone.
    • If you are disabled or physically challenged and drive eFoldi as a mobility vehicle, you are allowed to bring the FarReach battery (24V, 12Ah) on board.
    • You may also bring an extra battery pack, but please note that no battery may be left in checked-in luggage. It must be carried through the security check and into the cabin.

More details can be found on IATA and airline websites:

To use eFoldi as mobility scooter, see clause 1.4 on page 4:

Please always check with the airlines you are flying with, as they do have their own handling procedures.

How secure is my eFOLDi?

The new eFoldi has a key switch to turn it on and off and a key to secure the battery pack so it is pretty secure. Obviously if you fold up your eFOLDI and wheel it with you, it’s even more secure!
