Answers to How far does a segway go
How far can a Segway PT go?
The battery range is 24 miles, but varies with load, usage, hills, etc. Some riders extend their range by plugging in at work or other destinations.
How fast can a Segway PT go?
You set the top speed to 10 - 12 mph, comparable to walking/jogging or fast running. Begin at the slower speed, then move to the faster range when you are comfortable.
Top speed: 12.5 miles per hour (20 kph). This is about three times typical walking speed.
Every Segway HT has three different keys that riders may choose from depending on riding environment and level of experience. The Beginner Key (maximum speed of 6 mph and slowest turning rate), allows riders to gain confidence using the machine. The Sidewalk Key (maximum speed of 8 mph and a medium turning rate), allows riders to adapt well in pedestrian environments. The Open Environment Key (maximum speed of 12).
The second-generation Segway PT has two operational settings, "beginner" setting and "standard" setting. Beginner setting is set to 6mph/13kph, and the standard setting is set to 12.5mph/20kph.
All our models feature two speed modes, turtle and rabbit (slow and fast). In rabbit mode your scooter can reach a max speed of about 4.4 mph (7.0 km/h). Always select to ride in turtle mode while traveling with walking companions or navigating through crowds to prevent your scooter from speeding past your cohorts or endangering other pedestrians.
Inventor Dean Kamen admits that the Segway can never completely replace the car, because it doesn't have near the same capabilities. The standard HTi80 model only goes about 12 miles per hour (20 kph), and it has to be hooked up to household electrical current for about six hours to store up enough juice for a 15-mile (24-km) journey. Obviously, this sort of machine wouldn't do you much good on a cross-country road trip.
But Kamen does believe the Segway is a superior option for getting around a city. Cars take up a lot of room, so as soon as you have a bunch of people driving in a constrained area (like a city street), you get heavy traffic jams. It's also a hassle to park cars, and they are very expensive to maintain. All in all, a car is not an optimal machine for short trips in a crowded area.
The Segway is only slightly larger than a person, so it does not cause as much congestion as a car. As a sidewalk vehicle, it lets commuters zip through crowds, skipping the roadways completely. Just like scooters and bicycles, the vehicles will be involved in a good number of pedestrian accidents year to year. But the Segway's supporters say it's only about as dangerous as walking, since the vehicle moves at relatively slow speeds.
While it can't get people to their destinations at top speeds, the Segway can zip by slow-moving, bumper-to-bumper traffic. Once they get to their destination, riders can carry their Segways inside with them without worrying about parking. And there's no need to stop by the gas station, as the vehicle runs on ordinary household electricity.
Segways are also good machines for getting around crowded warehouses, where tight corridors make it difficult to use bulkier vehicles. People may find them useful for getting around large pedestrian areas, such as airports or amusement parks. There is really no limit to how people might use the vehicle. The Segway can fit in most places you might walk, but it will get you there faster, and you won't exert much energy.
