    I don't own the Segway or this taillight, but in the spirit of so many other Amazon reviews I have read, I would certainly support buying a taillight for a Segway were I to purchase one!

    This sleek, stylish, and very red taillight has only your safety in mind as a Segway rider. For all those nightly jaunts to your favorite coffee house or local eating establishment, this safety conscious tail light will make you stand out like a lifetime bachelor at one of Reverend Moon's group weddings.

    As you dart dangerously down the uneven pavement of your local sidewalk or public street, this LED tail light is sure to show all those people walking their dogs and shuffling down the street the old fashion way (with their legs no less) that you are not only cool enough to be riding an electric scooter, but cool enough to let those you pass in the dark know you are riding an electric scooter.

    Slap this tail light on your Segway and let the world know that you will not only pass them by, but you will do it while shining a red LED light in their Segwayless faces. ... Read more

    5-0 out of 5 stars A Review by an Actual Owner
    I own a Segway, unlike many of the silly people who have posted thus far. I have been delighted with my purchase from day one. Segway, LLC has the BEST customer support around and are always friendly and helpful. If ever there is a problem with your HT (and I've yet to encounter anything major) they dutifully- and quickly- respond!

    Riding your HT requires a little training, it takes a few days to learn to let go and allow the computer to balance you! What a sensation, though! It's put a smile on everyone's face who's tried it. Older persons seem quite taken with these, it allows for more personal freedom when walking is too difficult and driving is not practical. Younger persons, such as myself, find them economical and environmentally friendly. They don't ruin lawns, emit anything, and make no noise.

    Yeah, the price is steep, but then so is the new 2004 Porshe line. This, though, doesn't give off emmisions and costs as little as 14 cents a day to charge and use. Be wary, jealous people try to pass laws to ban them.

    They are small, easier to manuver than a car or bike, slower than most marathon runners, and are perfect on sunny days in a big city. Just remember to give pedestrians the right of way!

    Go get yours, or ask somebody (like me) for a demo!

    I LOVE my HT! I cannot express how much I love this thing. Finally, no more walking! I hate walking. Now all my troubles have disappeared. I don't even walk to the car anymore. I drive my segway right on out to the car, my driver sets me in my seat, stashes the HT someplace and off we go. I even ride it around my house. No more hurrying to the kitchen for a snack during a commercial, now I just hop on my HT and ZOOM, I'm there! I find shopping around town to be a breeze. I zip into a store, browse, buy and zip out. Just to warn you, though, most store owners frown upon bringing the HT inside, but I find that if you possess strong powers of persuasion you won't encounter many problems. My only concern is the lack of horn (or maybe I just can't find it). I find that having to raise my voice to shoo people off the sidewalk to be a real problem. If I had a horn I could pleasantly beep the bothersome peds out of the way. Riding the HT is such a thrill. I love the wind in my hair and the freedom from that infernal walking! I even took my HT on a hike! The trail was too steep to ride, so I just puttered around the parking lot until my companions returned. Now that I have my HT I find that I enjoy activities I once despised. Such as going along with my partner on her daily runs. I can now speed along side her shouting words of encouragment. I really do love my HT and highly recommend getting one for yourself, you WON'T regret it!!

    "A toy for rich people which does not improve human condition, November 16, 2003
    Reviewer: An electronics fan from USA
    I did not like the way this was first announced to the world on Good Morning America. They got lots of free advertising on the morning talk shows and I think that was wrong, there are many other good products in the world, first of their kind, inventions that help sick people, and they don't get free advertising. It's not fair. Sure it's unique but it's not something that helps to save lives, or help sick people, or anything like that. Why is the inventor of this so special that he should get free advertising? It's just an expensive toy for rich people.

    I also did not like the way this was in the Fraser TV show. But I guess it belongs with that class of people, it belongs with a bunch of rich snobs. The thing with this device, since it is so expensive and portable, small compared to a bicycle, it would be easy to hijack so anyone who buys one should be willing to have it stolen, you'll be out 4 grand and bicycle thief's will be able to have a new career. "

    To address the concerns of theft of this reviewer, each Segway HT comes with a set of three keys. Each one unlocks a greater ability of the Segway. But each set of keys is unique to the Segway! It has a 64 bit key code that works only for that Segway. So what's the theif gonna do? Oh wow! He's got a Segway but no way to work it!!! Well it's real useful to him now isn't it? What's he gonna do? Just roll it around??? Oh wow!!! I don't think any idiot would try to steal this... of course then again maybe you would....

    5-0 out of 5 stars A Science Museum Employee
    I have noted that many people on here saying that these devices have no practical purpose. Well considering that the average person walk fifteen minutes a mile an the Segway can go fifteen miles an hour, I think that we are definitely multiplying the time that you are out. I have rode this model numerous times as part of my duties. We use them mostly for watching over our lotsto prevent thievery and to make sure that visitors have a distinct experience. Riding on a bicycle would make it too hard to keep a good watch on the lots as the angle of the bicycle wouldn't let us see someone hiding behind a car trying to break into it. A Segway is upright and gives you about another half a foot of clearance to look over vehicles (such as those Hummers). As for those naysayers that say you don't get any excercise on a Segway- I was on one for about two hours and my leg muscles were just as sore as when I ride my bicycle to work (7 1/2 miles). We also sometimes have these in our own galleries, although in those instancess it's more along the lines of visitor understanding.

    As far as experiences outside of the museum, I haven't actually seen them as yet, but a couple of times I've heard of police units and groups of mailmen that have begun using them for their routes. Consider that you have to do a beat for oh so far within a certain amount of time. The Segway allows that one policeman to go on a longer round within the same amount of time threby cutting the need for as many policemen walking a beat and more in areas in which they are needed. The majority of gas pollution is created within the first three miles and a majority of travel that people drive is just three miles or so. The Segway cuts out the worst of gas pollution by using rechargable battery power instead. One of the newer versions of the Segway is built with pannier bags that can hold your groceries, for example. ... Read more


    5. Segway Human Transporter (HT) p Series

    (price subject to change: see help)
    Asin: B0000AVB7N
    Catlog: CE
    Manufacturer: Segway
    Sales Rank: 14396
    Average Customer Review: 3.46 out of 5 stars
    US | Canada | United Kingdom | Germany | France | Japan

    Amazon.com

    Early Adopters Pick: October 2003. The second in a line of the world's first dynamically stabilized Human Transporters, with forward and backward maneuvering guided by a rider's natural motions.

    The new Segway HT p Series is the next iteration of a unique and truly 21st-century idea: a two-wheeled electric transportation device that is practical, efficient, slightly miraculous, and an undeniably fun way of getting around. It’s smaller, lighter, and less expensive than the original Segway HT i Series, and the modifications that make it so are sure to please a new wave of riders.

    Control
    Topping out at 10 mph, the p Series is faster than a swift jog but a bit slower than the original Segway model, which hits 12.5 mph on flat surfaces. Segway isn't trying to replace your car with their machines, but they do promise a fun ride supported by cutting-edge technology quietly at work beneath your feet.

    The Segway HT moves forward by taking cues from your body language--the subtle leaning you use to balance yourself while walking or running. When you lean forward, the Segway HT goes forward. A walking lean produces a walking rate, while a steeper running lean can bring the Segway to its top speed. The machine stops when you right yourself. Steering is controlled with a small twist-grip on the left handlebar, a control that may initially prove disconcerting to those used to a motorcycle-style brake or throttle. After a few minutes, however, the handlebar turning mechanism feels completely natural. The Segway HT's two-wheeled design makes it quite agile--it can execute sharp turns and turn completely in place. Sharp turns require a slight leaning into the turns, as you'd expect, but the Segway HT helps by actively regulating turn responsiveness based on your speed.

    Ultimately, the Segway system is so easy to learn that a novice can be underway in seconds (with supervision) and ascending ramps and turning figure eights in minutes. After training and a few hours of use, a rider should feel comfortable with a wide range of activities.

    Riding
    Riding the p Series should be similar to riding the original i Series, but with added maneuverability due to its slightly smaller frame. The new model's battery is good for about 8 miles when fully charged (the original model was rated at 10 miles), but that difference is probably negligible if you're using the machine for intracity or neighborhood travel. Otherwise, you can ride the Segway HT p Serieson a variety of paved surfaces–from trails to congested city sidewalks. And its unique element of machine-assisted balance will surely continue to delight and astound. I saw a pair of city maintenance workers using Segway's self-balancing e Series models in downtown Seattle; one rider dismounted his Segway HT in the middle of the sidewalk and the machine just stood there balancing itself, rocking back and forth almost like a living thing, waiting for its rider to return. The e Series is currently only sold to commercial customers.

    Remember that if you can't easily stand upright or endure some jostling on varied terrain, the Segway HT will not solve these problems for you. The Segway HT is not a medical device. But while it cannot provide balance that the rider doesn't already have, the Segway's responsiveness does bring a subtle beauty to a rider's movements. Experienced riders can start, stop, swoop, and turn as gracefully as figure skaters. In fact, the machine's ease of use could create some overconfidence, so it's important to remember that its wheels always need traction for balance. A careless rider who drops a wheel over a curb or tries to turn too quickly on a slippery surface could fall. Segway advises that riders wear a safety helmet (like a bicycle or skateboard helmet) and start out in the Beginner mode before moving on to the faster settings.

    User-Friendly Design
    Closer to the ground than its predecessor by almost 2 inches, the Segway HT p Series should be even easier to mount than the original. Once on, your controls are the same. A single round display on the handlebars shows either a smiling face (meaning "get on") or a frowning face ("get off"). A graphic surrounding the face indicates the battery level. The Segway has no brakes--slowing down involves the same process as acceleration--and its gentle rate precludes any need for a speedometer.

    The p Series sports an extremely narrow footprint. It stands 21.8 inches wide, comparable to the shoulder span of an average man, and a few inches narrower than the original Segway HT, which is itself slight enough to fit gracefully into an elevator full of people. The p Series should prove itself even more adept at sliding into tight offices and passageways.

    Substantially lighter than the original, the new Segway HT p Series weighs only 70 pounds. With this reduction, the maximum allowable rider weight has also dropped. The p Series can carry riders weighing up to 200 pounds, plus 10 pounds of cargo, a bit lower than the original's limit, which is 250 pounds, plus 10 pounds of cargo.

    Usability
    The lighter weight and power-assist mode in the p Series make it easy to integrate with other modes of transportation, such as trains or automobiles. And it's specifically intended for smaller riders and urban commuters. Other potential users include students and professors in college towns, city dwellers who take many short trips, vacationers traveling with RVs, and people with easy access to nature trails and walkways.

    Well-Built Construction
    The basic elements of the new model are nearly identical in construction to the original. One main difference is the narrower 16-inch tires of the p Series, which are rated to last 3,000 miles or 5 years. Compare this to the muscular 19-inch tires (6,000 miles or 5 years) on the original. That said, a Segway is a clean and simple machine; the brushless motors are retained on the p133, and there continue to be only a few sturdy moving parts. The circuits and engine are still self-cooled through their contact with the platform's heat-drawing aluminum casing.

    Conclusion
    It's been less than a year since the introduction of the Segway HT i167 and already the company has launched a cheaper, leaner model that undoubtedly will appeal to a new group of riders. The continuing excitement about this amazing machine and the quick release of the elegant Segway HT p Series are good signs that the revolutionary Segway HT will be around, in one form or another, for years to come.--Erik Hammen

    Pros:

    • Less expensive than the original Segway
    • High-quality construction
    • Environmentally friendly, extremely energy efficient
    • Lighter and narrower, even easier to store than the original Segway
    • Accessories now available
    Cons:
    • Reduced weight allowance, battery charge life, and wheel life from the original Segway
    • Purchase price is prohibitive for many potential users, though the cost is partially offset in the long run by nominal upkeep expenses
    • Laws regarding legal riding areas (sidewalk versus street) vary from state to state

    5-0 out of 5 stars This is a solid piece of equipment, fantastic
    Unlike Steven Cavins (joke? review posted below) I'm not rich or a frivilous spender and that's why I ended up buying a Segway. I think the rich and frivilous folks are those who spend $30-50K to buy a large car or SUV to commute the 5 miles to work each day. And yet *that* is very acceptable behavior in my state. My story: My wife and I tried to get by with only one car for awhile, but I was not happy when stranded and the bus system was sometime great and sometimes not. I only need to commute 5 miles to work so after looking at various cars, I became facinated with the concept of a Segway. I got a p Series and love it. Riding to work is so nice on a summer day, I can't help but smile all the way.

    5-0 out of 5 stars I really like mine
    I used to drive my Ford Escape to work each day, but I recently bought one of these Segways (after riding one at Brookstone) and now I ride it to work instead. It's so fun and I love riding around in the Spring weather. The fact that I don't have to pay for parking or gasoline is really nice too. In case you're curious, the segway is completely waterproof (you can drive it through the pool) and riding one of these feels alot like skiing, because you lean into the turns and bend your knees on the sidewalk moguls. I park it right beside my desk at work and I charge it every other night. I usually don't like technology or gizmos but this was a great buy. Huh, now that I think about it, last Spring I spent over $3k on a Dell laptop, this Spring I bought the Segway for about the same price. Gotta say, the Segway was a way-better purchase.

    5-0 out of 5 stars I love mine.
    By the way the price for a new p Series is only $2,995 at Segway.com and any place other than amazon.com during July. It's also $1-2K on ebay.com.

    I commute 5 miles to work each day on my little Segway and love it. Most people drive their $35,000 SUV on the same commute I take to work each day, really. In fact, I've watched them leave my neighborhood, drive into my office park, and then drive around looking for parking. Remember the SUV/Minivan/Car is just a gasoline-powered device that substitutes for a bicycle, or walking.

    I suppose I'm crazy, but I thought paying 1/10th the price and having no maintenance costs would be better for me. The Segway can substitute for a car or motorcycle if you want it to. Do people find motorcycles acceptable, how is this different?

    Someone posted this previously "American drivers take approximately 900 million car trips per day. The EPA estimates that half of all those trips are less than five miles (8 km) long and transport only one passenger."

    1-0 out of 5 stars Why?
    A remarkable invention for meeting a need that doesn't exist. Bicycles are faster, more widely accepted by municipal laws, 1/300th the cost of a Segway, and truly environmentally friendly (or perhaps folks don't realize that 80% of the power used to charge their Segways comes from burning fossil fuels). Better still, why not simply walk? I was at a class reunion a couple months ago and saw the university police wheeling around on Segways. They looked downright foolish. So let's see -- you pay $4,000 for a device that does what your legs already do (but can't go as many places), AND you get laughed at because of it? I think the inventors should try to perfect the left-handed, motorized corkscrew...

    5-0 out of 5 stars Wowzer!
    I'm a rich and frivilous spender, so I decided to invest in a Segway from a local dealer in my neck of the woods. Before long, I was scooting around town effortlessly. The nice thing about the Segway is that it reduces pollution, but I find that local police enforcement does not allow me to use my Segway on main highways. I also do not like the attention I get when using the Segway. Teenagers are always asking, "Hey, can I try it?" It's a small price to pay to save on high gas prices. Everyone in America should have one. ... Read more

    Many people pay the same for bike locks for $200 bikes. It is hard to find a decent lock for under $30.

    If you are parking your Segway in a high crime neighborhood, you will have to worry about it, as with everything you leave there.

    Segways in general are well-worth the money, and so is this lock if it gives you peace of mind.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Beautiful design
    I doubted that any lock could be worth $80, but once you see this one you'll appreciate the quality. If you want a lock that attaches in seconds, rather than trying to wrestle one of the coiled types through the wheel and fender, this is for you. But don't purchase it from Amazon if you need one anytime soon. After waiting four months, I checked with Segway, and found that they've been in stock there right along. It took two days to get one. Wonder why Amazon still can't get any.

    2-0 out of 5 stars A bit expensive
    I'm not sure if this is the exact same lock, but I bought a Kryptonite lock directly from Segway for $19.99. ... Read more
