Joie i-Base Advance Review
The Joie i-Base Advance is quick to install, easy to use and lets your child stay rear facing for longer. The i-Size certified base has been tested to the highest safety standard and stops any incorrect installation with its colour indicators. For parents wanting one base that is compatible with car seats that can take a child up until 4 years, this is definitely for you.
The Joie i-Base Advance is made for parents wanting their child to travel in a car seat with the highest possible safety standard. It can take a child from birth with use of the Joie i-Gemm Car Seat, then from 15 months – 4 years when paired with the Joie i-Anchor Advance Car Seat. It provides forward and rearward facing travel when used with both seats and keeps your car seat secure and safe.
There is a button located at the front of the base that lets you take off your car seat. Just click it and off your car seat comes. The base also allows both the i-Gemm and i-Anchor Advance car seats to recline when attached. There are 7 different positions which is great for both snoozing babies and those that want to look out and explore. This is also done using a lever at the front of the base, meaning you can recline the car seat without having to reinstall the base.
The base also has an integrated rebound bar which minimises rebound movements during a collision. This helps to keep the car seat base in its original installation position after an impact, for extra safety.
The Joie i-Base Advance is compatible with the following car seats:
The base doesn’t need to be reinstalled when your child changes car seat and the base allows your little one to face rearwards until they are approximately 15 months. The new i-Size certification means that this car seat has been tested to the current highest safety standard, and will therefore keep your child safer in a collision. Rearward facing has been researched as being the safest way of travel for younger children, and Joie have tested above and beyond to ensure safety for your child.
To install the Joie i-Base Advance your vehicle will need ISOfix anchor points. It’s very easy to install and quick to do so, and prevent the hassle, twists or knots of pulling a vehicle seat belt around the car seat. It also prevents any incorrect installation due to green indicators, letting anyone use it safely and securely.
First you need to release the ISOfix points in the seat base and unfold the extendable leg support. Once you have done this, you need to push the ISOfix arms into the ISOfix points in your vehicle. Push the base into the vehicle seat and the indicators will turn green, giving you peace of mind.
Next, you need to fully extend the leg until the indicator also turns green. Once you’ve done this, you’re ready to pop on your car seat and get going. It’s ever so easy and the green indicators really help with correct installation. Plus, once it’s installed correctly you can just keep using time and time again – without reinstalling.
Once you’re done with the base, the leg can be folded up making storage easier.
