This can be carried out by a mobility shop, a garage, or Halfords.

Factory Outlet Scooters is unable to accept responsibility if; A scooter, power chair or rise recliner is not maintained as per the manufacturer’s guidelines laid out in the user manual; Failure to use the manufacturer’s parts or; If any alterations or amendments have been carried out on the product.

To ensure that batteries are kept in best condition please read our guide below:-

When you first install your new battery, place it on charge for at least 24 hours. If your vehicle is to be stored for any length of time, firstly charge fully, then disconnect the battery. Battery charging technology has changed considerably over recent years. Mobility scooter batteries (especially gel/sealed batteries) now offer more power for their size and provide longer performance. Try wherever possible to fully use your battery before charging and then fully charge before re-use. Always use the correct charging system for the batteries. Never use car chargers on gel batteries. Never completely discharge your battery. Warning! Batteries can be hazardous. All batteries - wet, sealed and gel units, contain lead and sulphuric acid, both are highly toxic and sulphuric acid is highly corrosive.

Battery Charging

Here are some simple rules for proper battery charging:-

Use the manufacturer's automatic charger for all routine charging. Leave the automatic charger turned on whenever possible, you cannot over-charge a battery when using automatic 3 stage chargers (the one supplied with your product).Never run batteries completely flat.

With smaller travel scooters fully charge after each use.

We stock a range of mobility scooter battery chargers suitable for most makes of mobility scooters from 2amp/hour upwards to 8amp/hour. All of these chargers are fitted with the industry standard round 3 pin plug unless requested otherwise.

Battery Life

Your battery will wear out with age or frequency of use. As the battery gets older your mobility scooter will travel more slowly or for shorter distances. If you use your mobility scooter very regularly then the battery will obviously wear out faster.

Distance

The distance you can expect from fully charged batteries will be greatly influenced by weight and terrain.

How Often Should You Charge?

Daily users - charge daily after use. Your scooter will then be ready each morning to give you a full day’s service.If you use your scooter infrequently (once a week or less), charge the batteries once a week for 12 to 14 hours.Smaller travel scooters’ batteries should be fully charged after each use.

Remember to always remove the key from your scooter so it is not accidently left activated.

Battery Storage

Store batteries fully charged. Check once a month and recharge as needed. Wet batteries can hold their charge for up to three months, sealed models six to twelve months. Remember, if storing your chair/scooter/rise recliner for longer than a few weeks, it's best to charge the batteries and then disconnect them.

Undercharging: A battery operated with insufficient charge over a long period of time may develop sulphate on the plates. This sulphate is dense and hard, and cannot be readily converted to normal active material again. In this condition the battery is unable to deliver its full power.
