So Lite Folding Scooter Top Features

Weight Capacity

The So Lite lightweight folding scooter's maximum weight capacity is about 275 pounds. This is a very strong frame! The entire unit weighs 40.8 pounds without the battery. So, the fact that it can hold up to 275 pounds is very impressive.

Although it's not the highest weight capacity of all the folding scooter options on the market, it's on the higher range for most lightweight mobility scooters.


The So Lite folding scooter has a top speed of 5 miles per hour, thats about an average jogging speed. This is actually faster than most other mobility scooters on the market that typically have a speed around 4 miles per hour.

Although it's definitely not the fastest, this is a good speed for most people's needs.

Battery life

The battery will take you up to eight miles on a single 6 hour charge.

This is not the best battery life of we have seen, but it's also not the worst. The battery life is average. We believe that the battery life/maximum distance you are able to travel has been decreased in an effort to increase the portability of the unit which is one of it's major strengths.

Airline Approved

Journey Health & Lifestyle So Lite Scooter Battery

The So Lite scooter's battery is FAA-approved. The So Lite can be used in the airport all the way up until it's time to board the plane.

When it's time to board the plane, the battery is carried on, while the scooter folds and is treated like oversized luggage.

Safety Features & Technology

The So Lite scooter's safety features is really where this folding scooter shines!

The So Lite Scooter seamlessly integrates the stability and safety of a 4-wheel scooter with the smaller size and convenience of a 3-wheel folding scooter. 

Electronic Stability Control is a feature very unique to the So Lite scooter. We have never seen a model that incorporates it into their scooters. With the Electronic Stability Control the So Lite Scooter slows down as you approach turns, ensuring you don't tip over. Even when turning at full speed the So Lite Scooter slows down enough to allow you to turn safely.

4-Wheel Mobility Scooter Buying Guide


Portability or Stability?

Typically, the three wheel folding scooter options are more lightweight, nimble, and portable. But, those benefits come with the downside of less stability, and comfort.

Four wheel mobility scooters are typically slightly heavier, have larger batteries, and a more solid and stable frame.

The So Lite lightweight mobility scooter is a mix between four wheel scooter, and three wheel scooters. The front two wheels are close together, almost making it look like the scooter is a three wheel scooter. The four wheels come together t0 provide a more stable ride along with the electronic stability control. The smaller form factor makes it narrow enough to easily fit through standard household door frames.


So Lite Scooter Speed Dial

The speed you need will come down to preference, and what you will need the scooter for.

Typically mobility scooters have a range of 3.5 to 5 miles per hour which is about a average walking speed to a light jogging speed.


The range you need will be determined by what you will be using the scooter for.

If you are going to need it for only small distances, it's best to get a lightweight folding scooter since they will take up less space, and typically are more affordable.

If you will be taking them on rides of over 10 miles or more, we recommend a larger mobility scooter. Although it will not be nearly as portable, you will be able to ride with a lot more comfort and typically at faster speeds.
