The world’s only “Kosher certified” mobility vehicle!
Use your mobility scooter on the Sabbath.

How it works
The Shabbat provides a halachically-approved mobility vehicle for people who want to honor the Sabbath. The halachic principles involved are gramma (indirect operation) and “continuous change of current.”
The Shabbat module is available on Amigo RD and Amigo RT Express models. A toggle switch changes operation from normal to Shabbat mode. With no throttle lever activation by the rider, the module’s timing circuit sets the chair into idle motion after a short delay (approx. 10 seconds), satisfying the “no work” Sabbath restriction. Every Amigo Shabbat unit is individually inspected and certified by a Zomet Institute representative.

Keeping Amigo batteries in good working condition is critical to keeping you and your Amigo on the go. Here is information to keep top of mind.

First… Good charging habits improve battery performance.
It’s helpful to charge batteries at every opportunity whenever the Amigo is not in use, which will also reduce charging time because batteries aren’t discharged as deeply.

Second… Amigo battery chargers are smart chargers, so they will stop charging when the battery reaches a full charge.

Third… Absorbent Glass Mat (AGM) batteries (most commonly used in Amigos) generally need to be replaced every 12-18 months (24-36 months with proper charging). If you are having trouble with charging, it may be time for new batteries. View Amigo battery options here.
