Welcome to our review of the Drive Medical Cobalt X14. If you are interested in the Drive Medical Cobalt X14, we have some valuable information below about this product that you should know about. We feel that the EZ Lite Cruiser is the best choice for an electric wheelchair because they are light weight, compact, easy to use and very affordable when compared to the Drive Medical Cobalt X14 and its offerings.
Drive Medical is the manufacturer of quite a few electric wheelchair models, and their Cobalt line are in the lower end of the price range scale overall. Drive Medical Cobalt X14 is offered for sale on many websites and boasts just about all of of the same features of the other Drive Medical models. The Cobalt X14 weighs 121 pounds (54.9 kilograms) with the battery. The base weighs 74 pounds (33.6 kilograms), seat weighs 19 pounds (8.6 kilograms) and each battery (x2) weighs 14 pounds (6.4 kilograms). In terms of size, the dimensions of this power wheelchair are 38.5 inches x 24 inches (97.8 centimeters x 61 centimeters), but unfortunately the Height is unknown (we could not find it online.) This device can not be folded. Since it can not be folded, it can not be easily stored in a car/SUV trunk, but if disassembled, it can be put into your car/SUV in parts. If you own a Van, the whole chair can drive into it (using a ramp) and be stored in the Van unfolded. This power chair will generally require a car lift. Most people, even with reasonable upper body strength, will not be able to lift it without support of a car lift.
The Drive Medical Cobalt X14 has a Seat Size of 18 inches wide x 15 inches long (45.7 centimeters wide x 38.1 centimeters long) and is constructed to be capable of carrying passengers weighing 250 pounds (113.4 kilograms). Depending on where it is purchased, it may come pre-assembled. Most times some assembly is required and a toolkit may be required.
The Drive Medical Cobalt X14 has a Turn Radius of 29 inches (73.7 centimeters), and can be drive for up to 8 miles (12.9 kilometers) of continuous use on a full battery charge. The manufacturer does not specify how long it takes to charge battery from empty to full. In terms of the the driving, it can reach a speed of about 4 miles per hour (6.4 kilometers per hour) and handle inclines of 6 degrees. It will accomplish most indoor mobility requirements just fine. Some doorways and hallways may be tight to fit through because of its size and turn radius. The Drive Medical Cobalt X14 handles simple outdoor mobility fairly, such as paved sidewalks & flat surfaces, but may be limited as to the terrains it can roll on.
