Specifications and Features

The ForTech Two Wheels Mini Smart Self Balancing Scooter is made of Alloy metal and is inclusive of a Samsung high capacity 110Wh lithium battery. The battery takes one hour to charge from zero to 100%. When fully charged, this device can operate for 5-6 hours before dying out. This gives the user approximately 15-20 km range per charge.

The scooter comprises of 2 pressure sensitive high-power 375*2 watt motors placed underneath the foot panels. The motors connect with a single axle placed across the scooters flame. When you want to move forward, the user simple applies pressure on both footpads to engage the motor. The motor cannot run if pressure is applied to only one footpad. To increase speed, press your toes forward and the scooter automatically picks up the pace.

Due to its high power motors, turning is relatively easy. The user simply needs to think of the act and the scooter complies. It captures the simplest of instructions from the tiniest changes in the user’s movements. To reduce speed, the user simply applies pressure on the heel of his/her foot. To stop the scooter, the user needs to press the heels down to slow down and eventually come to a halt. The scooter is fast for a battery operated device and can go up to a maximum of approximately 13-15mph.

The whole family can enjoy riding it in the park, on local streets and surrounding neighborhoods. It is a great device to use to commute to and from school or work as long as it is fully charged each morning.
