Benefits of Power Wheelchairs That Fold
Power chairs are a very important part of many people’s lives. The problem is that wheelchairs in general - are not always the easiest things to travel with. Loading electric wheelchairs into your car, for example, can be a challenging process, especially if you live alone. Electric folding wheelchairs are the perfect solution, as they generally weigh less than 60 lbs and are able to fit in small storage spaces. Below is a short video demonstration of one of the most recommended folding models that we carry, the Jazzy Passport by Pride Mobility.
Tips For Those Shopping For Folding Power Wheelchairs
Like most of the products we carry, folding electric wheelchairs have a lot of different brands and models available. Each brand (also known as the manufacturer) is different and each model will have its own unique features that you can take advantage of. On our website, we only offer products made by manufacturers who offer excellent customer support long after the original purchase is made. We work with manufacturing brands like Pride Mobility and Drive Medical which have networks of service technicians that offer nation-wide coverage in case our customers need in-home repairs in the future.

If you click on any of the product images above, it will take you to the product page where you can find the product details tab below the main image gallery.

Below is a short demonstration showing you how to navigate our website to find product specifications.
If you're shopping for a battery-powered wheelchair that folds, and it is your first time doing so - here are some tips that will help you find the right chair.
Weight Ratings- Customers who buy foldable electric wheelchairs are generally doing so because they want something that is easy to manage and that they can travel with. This makes the weight of the product a very important factor. These products generally weight between 40 and 60 lbs, you can find this information on the product page under the "product details" tab too. Another important specification to consider is the weight capacity.
Measurements - Before purchasing any product from our site, you should always check the specifications to know what the dimensions of your product are. Folding power chairs have 2 sets of dimensions. The first set would be the dimensions of the product when it's not folded and then the second set would be the dimensions of the unit when it is folded. This is important to consider because you want to make sure your wheelchair fits in the areas that you're going to store it in i.e. the trunk of a car. Check the product page of the chair you're interested in to find the dimensions, they're located in the "product details tab".
Battery Information - Most of the models you find on this page use Lithium batteries which are high quality and lightweight. The size of the battery is directly related to the travel range that the unit has. Like any battery, if you don't properly use your battery it will die and eventually not work anymore. The proper way to use your battery is to never let the battery discharge all the way. Instead, monitor your battery indicator to ensure you start to charge your battery when it is low. Draining your battery to 0% is the most common way customers damage their batteries.
We strongly recommend measuring your home's most narrow doorways, corners and hallways to ensure your product fits in your home. Additionally, you should also consider speaking with one of our mobility experts regarding the best battery operated wheelchair that folds based on your measurements and needs. We have mobility experts ready to take your call and to chat with you.

Most Affordable Folding Power Wheelchair
The cheapest folding power wheelchair that we carry is the Cirrus Plus by Drive Medical. Keep in mind that there are likely cheaper options on the web but be careful because they might have flimsy frames that are not durable. We constantly hear stories from customers who bought a very low price folding power wheelchair online and it ended up braking soon after purchase due to the low-quality construction. Folding units require durable construction and frame material in order to last for a long time. The Drive Medical Cirrus Plus has a lifetime warranty on the frame just like the rest of our models.
