The E-motion umbrella was recommended in an AARP monthly magazine being useful for seniors with arthritic hands, I went on the web site and ordered one. I just love it (I do not have arthritic hands) but the ease of opening and closing is unbelievable. Has of November 25, 2022, I have bought four, one for a present and the other three I have in my possession (one is the golf size).
This is my 2nd ShedRain motorized compact umbrella (1st one was from Amazon). On the first one wire broke at the joint. I found out to my disappointment that wires are made of composite (very weak) and not metal. I threw it out and got new one. If it breaks again I will send umbrella and ask for refund. I love motorized mechanism that closes umbrella completely (not just on the top like others). I give it 5 stars and I hope it lasts long.
