Firefly Electric Wheelchair Hand Cycle
This compact electric hand cycle option can travel at a maximum speed of 12.5MPH, however, to do this, you will need to remove the factory installed limiter which is set at 8MPH.
The Lithium Ion battery 36V, 6.6AH, 238Wh has a maximum travel distance of fifteen miles and the 36V 2A input charger, which comes included, charges the battery completely in just four hours.
If you want to travel farther, you can purchase an additional battery pack.
The motor is a 350W, 36V brushless geared hub motor which has plenty of power to propel you up slopes or across grass, and the Rio Firefly electric hand cycle attaches to most kinds of rigid frame wheelchairs, as long as it has fixed front legs.

The latest model, Firefly 2.0, has several improvements over the original model, including separate thumb-operated throttles for forward and reverse. These are much easier to use than the original twist throttle, especially for those with limited wrist movements, and for left-handers.
This model also has a new, two-point docking system which makes attaching and detaching the hand cycle really quick and easy.
