Product Review - CoolReall DreamWalker Self-Balance Scooter #CoolReall #DreamWalker #promotion #review #amazon

Self-Balance Scooter

First let me start out by saying the DreamWalker is probably one of the coolest inventions for fun mobility out there!

The battery life is amazing with the preinstalled 110Wh lithium battery that only takes about an hour to give a full charge yet gives you a good FIVE hours of playtime before needing to be charged again. If you have never used anything like this before, like my husband in this video, you will want to take your time getting comfortable with balancing before attempting to go at high speeds. As you can see in the video he is using some heavy duty trekking poles for balance.

Maneuvering is a breeze once you start to get the feel for it. You can increase your speed by applying light pressure towards the front part of the scooter on the footpads and if you want to decrease your speed just press your heels down instead. Turning is no issue as it turns on a dime and almost seems to do it instinctively as you're using it and maneuvering it with your body. The motor is a smart motor and that's excellent for keeping you safe while having fun… meaning, if you tried to go downhill and go to fast it will not let you go past the maximum speed.

The scooter itself is a little less than 30 pounds in weight and reasonably portable for the average adult and older teenager… Children around the age of 14 or younger may not be able to carry it properly and safely. It comes with a 100 to 240 V AC charger with standard US plugs, no special adapters are required… It also comes with a user manual that gives you instructions of basic usage and some tips.

The outside body itself is thin and does scratch up pretty easy if you take a spill on a hard surface such as concrete or asphalt.

Key things to keep in mind:

  • Foot pressure needs to be in balance on both sides in order to move properly
  • Take your time learning to balance and move
  • Come to a stop completely and step off the scooter backwards to dismount it
  • Keep yourself relaxed when riding and try to move your body in a fluid motion and the scooter will follow your lead
  • Keeping your feet closer towards the wheels on either side will help you balance, especially if you're just learning
I leave this review saying try this out for yourself because it's a ton of fun and if you take care of it, it should last you for many years!
