Travel Buggy VS Jazzy Passport
why choose Travel Buggy over Jazzy Passport?
Travel Buggy batteries are approved for airline travel (their's are not).
Travel Buggy uses the latest and most efficient electric motor technology (they do not).
City Electric Wheelchair
|Summary||Strong and powerful, yet even lighter than the smaller Jazzy Passport. Batteries are a major differentiator. Two batteries power the CITY giving it increased range, yet well under air travel limits. 250 watt brushless motors also major advantage adding increased efficiency and power. 395 lbs rating and optional 21" seat width makes it perfect for larger users as well.||Smaller less powerful chair than CITY, but without offsetting weight reduction you would expect. Main drawbacks are special battery required for air travel and brushed motors which are hard to compare to newer brushless technology in terms of efficiency and power.|
