Main website, 3 chairs, 3 lots of pages, maybe 30,000 words. Long pages!
Dont copy, build to suit your needs.

I wouldnt consider doing an f55 today. Its a very old long discontinued chair. Parts are not available, and much of it needs modifying. For e,g you cant get simple things like motors. Thats why I bought a salsa. Thats the same basically as the groove, and the new r700 chairs. All the bits are swappable and interchangable.

You don't have to use the lifepo4 Headway cells either.

The 'new' Q700 R SEDEO ERGO starts at £14000! Plus a few more grand for seating options. Even with a third off its still a joke.
Its pretty wide too, 640MM / 25.2 inches.
Their chargers have changed a bit but the 10Amp one is a £184 option. (On the right.)

7k full retail. Less any discount.

Also, any chair with full sized 70Ah batteries will be around 25 inches or a little more.
Thats the width of a battery, plus 2x 90mm motors, and 2x 3 inch wide tyres.

And the 8 and 10 A chargers ar both equally crap. And overpriced like all mobility chargers.

Theres also narrower chairs. And cheaper... Much cheaper, but they dont have the options we need.

New chairs or even recent chairs are just too expensive an option for us.

This one was 100 euro and will do me to fiddle with :D
