Can battery be charged while in chair? Is a charger included?

It comes with a charger and sufficiently long cord. No need to remove battery to charge. However, the WFT battery is very easy to remove if you wanted to charge it off the chair.

Do I need to unplug or remove the battery when fold it?

You do not need to unplug or remove the WFT battery to fold it. Although, doing so will lighten the load by another 6.5 pounds, so it could make it even lighter for you to lift it. But absolutely you do not need to unplug or remove the battery to fold it.

Can I travel with this to a country that uses 240 Volt electricity, like UK?

Yes, it has a 100-240 volt ac charger. the charger for this device is rated to work with 220 Volts. You simply need an adapter to change the plug for the overseas socket.

How long does it take to go from half to full charge; can be charged on-board?

A lot of customers order a second battery and a standalone charger. With the standalone charger, you can charge the second battery directly from the wall outlet, and always have a full second battery to swap out at any time, leaving no downtime waiting for a battery to charge back up.

Can I take this on a plane and check it in curbside?

You will need to check the wheelchair in when boarding, to store it in the airplanes baggage compartment. You will not be able to check it in with the Lithium Ion battery connected. You must disconnect the battery, store it in the black travel pouch that comes with your wheelchair, and bring it with you in your Carry On bag. The DOT (Department of Transportation) regulates the allowance of lithium ion batteries that can be taken onto an airplane by the Equivalent Lithium Content (ELC) of the batteries. Some airlines may have their own restrictions, so it is always best to check with the specific airline you are flying. Most will be compassionate enough to allow it, as it does meet the DOT regulations and it is a mobility aid that is essential to your travel.

Is the footrest adjustable and can it be lowered to stand up from the chair?

Footrests are not adjustable. They swing to the side to allow one to stand up Just like a manual wheel chair.

Do the footrests swing back while still attached?

Yes, they swing away. In general the chair functions well, however, replacement parts cannot be found.

Does the seat recline ? Can I keep my leg unbent using the extended footrest?

This model does not have a reclining back, but it is angled. We do have a line of Luxury Models which do have a back that reclines in 5 positions.

Is the back adjustable?

Different types of products have different settings

Are the tires solid material or are the inflatable which will require a pump?

Here are inflatable and are a pain in the butt to inflate. the stems are to short I must remove the tires to service. Amazon does sell that size tire solid rubber, If the wheels were slit hubs I would get them but I haven't figured out how to get the solids on the wheel with no tire tools.
The tires are solid Polyurethane PU Foam covered in plastic. The foam mimics air tires. It is covered in Plastic to give it a strong outer shell. You never need to inflate them.

Does it perform different as wheels get larger that makes them worth more money?

The wheel size available in our Standard Model are 8" rear wheels. The Luxury models have larger wheel options in the 10" and 12" variety. The Luxury model also comes in an 8" wheel option. For the larger wheel sizes, you will have better performance on rougher terrain. If you do a lot more outdoor activity, then the 10" and 12" wheels are a better option being that they have more treading. They also have overall more wheel material, so you will have to change the rear wheels less often. That is the added benefit that makes them worth more money, because in the long run, you end up spending less on rear wheel replacements.

Can I put a seat-belt on this chair, and what's weight capacity can it hold?

Yes, it comes with a seat belt that can be mounted around the seat of the frame/back support.
The weight capacity is 265 pounds, but at close to that weight you may feel tight in the seat. If you weigh near that amount, look into our luxury models which are slightly larger.

How long does it take to charge the batteries on the Wofftown Wheelchair?

It can take up to 6 to 8 hours to achieve a full charge on the battery, and to properly condition it.
A Red LED light on the charger indicates that it is charging.
A Green LED light on the charger indicates that it is not charging, or the battery is not connected.
If you are charging the battery and notice that the LED light on the charger changes from Red (charging) to Green (not charging), please Do Not yet disconnect the charger.  Leave the charger plugged in.  You will notice the light change back to Green momentarily.  What is happening is that each of the 8 cells in the Lithium Battery are being charged individually, and a BMS (Battery Management System) within the battery is controlling the charging.  It will cycle through all of the cells continually until it is fully charged.  When the battery is fully charged, you will notice the LED light on the charger remains Green for an extended period of time.
We recommend charging your battery each night for the full 8 hours.  It is safe to do so.  The Battery Management System will prevent any overcharging from happening, and will turn off the flow of current to the battery cells once a full charge is indicated.
You can charge the battery any time, no matter how much charge is remaining in the battery.

How do I connect (plug in) the battery?

We created a helpful video along with a list of instructions & tips for connecting (plugging in) the battery, shown here

Can You Offer any Travel Tips for Flying on an Airplane?

1. With the Deluxe Models, Remove the anti-tipping wheels and plastic sleeve of the kickstand, prior to giving the chair to the baggage handlers (right at the gate) and store them in the zippered pouch under the seat.  With a Standard Model, this does not apply.
2. Remove the joystick, and, if you have a Deluxe Model, wrap it in bubble wrap and tuck it away between the seat cushion and back support cushion.  If you have a Standard Model, wrap it in bubble wrap and store it in the zippered pouch under the seat.
3. If you have a Deluxe Model, use the bungie cord that came with the chair to secure it tightly together so it doesn't unfold when the baggage handler takes it away.  With a Standard Model, this does not apply.
4. Use the Travel Bag if you have it.

Should the charger be plugged into the outlet first, and then into the battery?

It's recommended that the charger is already plugged in to the wall first, and then to the battery (for off-board charging) or the joystick (for on-board charging.)
