Mary from Rockford IL USA submitted this review on September 17th 2010 at 03:03 PM. Mary is an end user who has six months to a year of experience with the product.
Strengths:It goes far on a single charge, and lasts all day at the Mall or Amusement Park. It really handles uneven terrain, grades, ramps and grass very well. It is easy to transport and comes apart and together quickly. Not so heavy that a ramp is always needed. Fits easily into my little Hyundai.
Weaknesses:Makes a little hum as you ride, so people hear you coming up along side them. It's a bit annoying. And I wish the seat would recline just a few degrees.
Comments:I love this scooter. It is a lifesaver for me, and makes it possible for me to travel more.

ANN from WORTHING,WEST SUSSEX,ENGLAND submitted this review on November 23rd 2009 at 10:06 AM. ANN is an end user who has over a year of experience with the product.
Strengths:Very nippy on smooth level ground. Excellent in shopping centres.
Turns around the rear wheel.
Nice and narrow to squeeze through tight spaces.
Width adjustable if greater stability wanted but I use it in and outdoors on the narrow setting all the time without any problems.
Easy to take apart (have had it on non-accessible buses).
Length adjustable. On the short setting it's easier to turn around narrower corners.
Swivel seat (8 positions).
Seat back folds down.
Seat height is adjustable.
Armrests fold up and are adjustable for width.
Can take a bike basket on front handlebars and another basket on baseboard.
Can use all day on one battery but haven't tested actual range.
Space for second battery available.
The heaviest item is the battery.
Has a parking brake also.
Weaknesses:Low power. The motor is tiny. Slow uphill but on my new battery I can get up a fairly steep slope into a shopping centre here. In the past, when I lived in a very hilly town, I used to get off and turn it round and use it as an electric rollator, driving it backwards up the hills with my shopping loaded on it. It is easier to do that than walk alongside it whilst driving it forwards. (The same tip applies if you use a bicycle.) I weigh about 60-70 kilos. If you are very heavy or live in a very hilly area and are unable to get off and walk a bit when necessary, this machine will not be suitable for you.
In order to push the machine easily without using the motor, it is necessary to disconnect a connector under the hood. This is very inconvenient. It really needs an extra switch to do this easily.
Will roll on sloping ground if handbrake is not applied or front wheel is not turned sideways, therefore extra care is needed when using pavement ramps to cross roads.
The main switch does not need a key this is therefore insecure. It needs to be replaced with a key operated switch otherwise you will have to use a cable lock to secure the machine.
No lights, but bike lights could be fitted.
Small wheels give a bumpyride on outdoor pavements.
Wigwag levers too short and return spring too strong for me. Have fitted extensions to wigwag levers.
Brake lever too low for me. I need to extend this also.
Top speed only 4-5 mph.
Out of production.
Don't lose the clip for securing the tiller!
Seat post pin gets in the way when disconnecting the power cable from the battery. Mind your fingers!
Length adjuster bolt head (t-bar) gets in the way of luggage and can therefore get loosened inadvertently. Check it frequently!
Comments:I have been very pleased with this little machine. There are however several other smaller and possibly lighter scooters still in production if you want a little lightweight one.

Butch from Largo submitted this review on June 1st 2009 at 01:08 PM. Butch is an end user who has one to six months of experience with the product.
Strengths:This is the first scooter that I have used/owned. It maneuvers fantastically in stores. It is very easy to transport because it breaks down.
Weaknesses:Like the others have reported. The uphill strength is non-existent.
Comments:This is the first scooter that I have used/owned. In fact a friend gave the scooter to me. It needed a new battery of which I purchased a replacement from Sears.I wish that this unit was still available on the retail market so that there would be replacement parts and optional items available. I had to rig a bicycle basket on the front to carry items in.

TED from ROCK HILL, SC 29732 submitted this review on July 11th 2008 at 07:49 AM. TED is an end user who has over a year of experience with the product.
Strengths:NOTHING COULD POSSIBLE MANUVER THROUGH A HOME AS GOOD AS THIS SCOOTER-EXCELLENT. LIGHTWEIGHT TO LOAD! SPINNING SEAT AROUND MAKES EXCELLENT DINNING CHAIR AND WILL SLIDE BENEATH RESTURANT TABLES-EXCELLENT. FAST ENOUGH FOR ANYONE. EXCELLENT SIZE ADJUSTMENT AND DISASEMBLY FOR ANY CAR TRANSPORTATION. REALLY NICE. PAID ONLY $300. USED GREAT INVESTMENT.
Weaknesses:WEAK ON SLIGHT GRADES OUTSIDE AND ACROSS THRESHHOLDS INSIDE HOME. BATTERY COVERS AND EXCESSORIES NON EXISTANT ON INTERNET.
Comments:OVERALL A GOOD UNIT

Marilou from Lakewood, CA, USA submitted this review on December 15th 2003 at 11:26 AM. Marilou is a care giver who has over a year of experience with the product.
Strengths:Extremely easy to transport in a small car with no lift or carrier. The travelark disassembles into 5 convienent pieces that fit into my convertible's trunk. The heaviest piece is the battery. Runs all day on a single charge and will turn on a dime in those winding lines at Disneyland.
Weaknesses:Going up hill is a problem. If someone is there to give you a little push, no problemo. But if you're on your own, you may have to walk it up a steep hill.
Comments:I purchased our Lark Travelark used, from a resaler. That was four years ago and we would still rather keep this one than buy something newer (and possibly not as convienent). I am guessing that it was about 3 years old when we bought it. The only problem is that now the battery needs charging more often. So after 7 years of use, it will need a new battery (about $78). This is a quality product!
