Segway Patroller at ‘The Base’ clocks up 16,000km in 3 years

Waikato Security Services deployed a Segway i2 Patroller at ‘The Base’ shopping centre in Hamilton a little over three years ago, and this unit has now clocked up almost 16,000 km (9,800 miles).

That’s about 100km per week, or 15km per day at this large, busy mall that features outdoor “strip-mall” and indoor mall spaces, as well as outdoor and underground car parking.

During a recent service check by Segway New Zealand, this heavily used machine was found to be in excellent condition. Staff advised that the batteries were “…still going strong…” which is pretty amazing when you think how 16,000km is about the distance from Hamilton (New Zealand) to London (England) by plane, or on an imaginary road that directly connects the two cities.
