Regular maintenance of your battery is hugely important and at The Mobility Centre South West we can help. If your battery is over 3 years old, bring it in for us to check it over and determine how much longer it will last. Good maintenance will ensure a long life and maximum performance.
Charging Your Battery
When your batteries are new, we recommend that you use them as close as possible to their full discharge before charging them again. So wait until your ‘fuel gauge’ is showing less than half before recharging. If you do this for the first few times, there is a better chance for your batteries to work at their maximum capacity for the longest time.
Following this the best idea is to put your scooter or power-chair on charge over night. Don’t interrupt charging unless you have to, let them reach their full charge. Only use the charger supplied. If you need a new one we can supply you for your vehicle.
Keeping your batteries dry
Store your scooter and batteries in a cool dry place if possible. Batteries do not like extremes of temperature. Ensure the terminal fittings are secure and clean – this will prolong the life of the battery. Should your batteries get wet, remove them if possible and wipe them down with a dry cloth.
