Pride Mobility expands its travel mobility lineup with the new Go-Go Endurance Li*, which incorporates lithium-ion batteries.
The standard lithium-ion battery is an airline-approved** 8Ah battery pack. Clients can also purchase a 16Ah MAXX lithium battery to enjoy greater range per charge.
Pride Mobility notes that, compared to a sealed lead acid battery, a lithium-ion battery is:
- 60% lighter
- 31% longer range and maintains speed throughout the discharge cycle
- 140% faster charging
- Fewer service calls: Lithium-ion can be topped off and short charged without impacting the useful life of the battery
- 2-year warranty
The Endurance Li comes with two standard compact, foldable seat options: 17”x17” and 20”x18”. Also standard with each unit is a set of Garnet Red (matte) and Euro Grey shrouds, a weight capacity of 325 pounds, front and rear Comfort-Trac Suspension, a wraparound delta tiller, an LED headlight and Pride’s feather touch disassembly, according to a media release.
“The Endurance Li batteries have exceptional range, sustained performance, and since these batteries are super lightweight, disassembly and reassembly are a breeze. The 8Ah battery box is 8 pounds, which is less than a gallon of milk, while the MAXX Li-battery box is a very manageable 12 pounds with a 14.4-mile range.”

Renae Storie, Vice President of Pride Mobility, says that traveling is easier than ever with the Go-Go Endurance Li.
“The Go-Go Endurance Li’s portable, lightweight design makes it easy to take anywhere,” Storie adds. “The lithium-ion battery provides enough range to get through an entire day of sightseeing. When the battery does need to be charged, it charges 140 percent faster. Whether exploring Europe, discovering trails at a park or shopping, the Endurance Li is up to the task.”
*The Go-Go Endurance Li is an FDA Class II Medical Device.
**Transport of this item on commercial aircraft is subject to federal regulations and airline policy. Clients should consult their airline prior to their flight to ensure the Go-Go Endurance Li and its lithium-ion battery are permitted.
