Default Where and how do UK residents upgrade?

Admittedly we enlightened UK Segwayers are a tiny band of gliders but we seem to have been forgotten altogether.
If I want to upgrade my software or go for Liths it would appear from my investigations so far the unit has to be sent at least as far as Italy and possibly back to US all at HUGE cost.
Don't we from the colonies (!?) matter enough to have appropriate facilities here?

My dealer tells me he can't get any liths yet. You might want to check with your dealer if he can get liths. Otherwise you don't have to worry yet about doing a upgrade.

Let's hope that this years SegwayFest will be held in brussels, then you can do your upgrade there and we both might be able to get lith batteries.


Kind regards,

Florin,

I am hearing the first time from a SegwayFest in Brussels. Are there any plans to have a SegwayFest?

Alex.

Hi Socrates,

Brussels is one of the proposed locations, see for the full story this thread: http://www.segwaychat.com/forum/topi...TOPIC_ID=12541

I don't think that it will become the selected place, since it's organized by Seg America, but acording to Will, you never know. So let us keep our fingers crossed.



Kind regards,

I think that according to Steve (Desert Seg) the only European upgrades possible are through a company in (mind blank here) Spain (or Italy). It was in a thread that occurred a week or two ago.

Hi,
it is somewhere in Italy, I don't know where exactly.
I contacted BAE Systems in UK as well, they don't offer the upgrade. But a very friendly person there is helping me to find out the italian address. As soon as I know it, I will tell it eyerybody.

All,

L-Ion battery upgrade units have to be sent to the Segway Service Centers in Bedford or Milan, Italy and should be done via an authorized distributor / reseller.

Hi Desert Seg,
Is that Bedford in UK (she asks hopefully as I am but 60 miles from there) or Bedford somewhere else? Just to reassure you I DO know Milan is in Italy before you worry that I might be a complete 'air head'!!
Bye for now

With Bedford, Steven means the Bedford in the east coast region of the US.
