Design & Handling
With its portable design and approximate dimensions of D15 x W17 x H25 in, the Realm BY02-BCMH makes mobility one of its core strengths. The handle adds to the BY02-BCMH convenience of transport.
Standing at only 24 lbs, this model can be carried around very easily. This is, in part, thanks to its plastic frame, which allows it to remain as lightweight as possible. A set of two solid wheels also improves the ease of transport of the device.
