With a top speed of 12.5 mph (20 km/h) on a vehicle that depends on battery power to maintain balance, a ride on Segway's i2 could certainly be called exciting. Two Valence Saphion lithium-ion batteries in the i2 deliver a range of up to 24 miles on a single charge. Saphion lithium-ion batteries are low-maintenance batteries that can operate at temperatures as low as 14F (-10C). The Segway PT uses several Microchip Technology products including the PIC16F 8-bit Flash microcontrollers. Among other tasks, the MCUs manage the battery power.
