    Hi @jetskidia :) I'm afraid I don't have personal experience of either of these mobility scooters. I've marked your post as unanswered to increase the chances that another member sees it. Have you looked for reviews elsewhere online? What are the main things you're looking for from a mobility scooter?

    Hi there 

    I have a scooter but quite old and not the ones you mentioned  

    The best thing to do is go and try them out to see what is best for your needs as you can read up but you need to know if it is comfortable as well as how it performs 
    I have professional experience in HR within public,  private, and charity sectors.  If I can help I will

    Hello, remember these small light weight scooters are made and designed for shopping mall usage as they have low ground clearance and smaller wheels. Most are boot type scooters which break down into four or five parts to make it easier to put into the car boot. Remember that the batteries are or will be the heaviest part to lift aprox 20 to 30 lbs. Ask yourself can I lift this amount from ground level into my car boot and from my car boot in doors to charge the batteries. Will it fit in my car boot space. Try before you buy if you are able.

    Hi,
    The two I mentioned do not have low ground clearance or particular small wheels, they also don’t break into various parts, but just fold into one piece, they definitely do not have batteries that weigh 20 to 30 lbs!
    Thats why I am considering only the two I mentioned.
    TY

    Hi @jetskidia :)

    I'm afraid I can't offer any reviews or advice. Hopefully though, somebody on the community will spot the title of your post and get in touch if they do have any experience of either the Efoldi Lite or Di Blasi scooter. 

    Do you currently have a preference for one or the other? Or are you still undecided?
