CHARGING NEW BATTERIES

batteries

DURING THE FIRST 14 DAYS IT IS ESSENTIAL TO FOLLOW THIS ROUTINE TO TEACH THE GEL INSIDE THE BATTERY CASING TO ‘HOLD’ THE CHARGE PUT INTO IT:

1. Charge the batteries every night for a minimum of 12 hours
2. Use the Scooter/Powerchair every day for at least 30 minutes to ‘cycle’ the batteries
3. Do not run the Scooter/Powerchair battery lights down too low during the first 14 days as this can damage the new batteries

After 14 days your batteries should have the ability to perform at 100%.

The following routines should be considered to maintain your batteries and ensure a good working lifespan for them:

Charging batteries for EVERYDAY use of the Scooter or Powerchair
1. Charge your batteries every night for a minimum of 12 hours
2. Do not turn off the charger once the green light appears as this normally indicates that the batteries are at 80% and the charger moves into ‘trickle’ mode

Charging batteries for INFREQUENT use of the Scooter or Powerchair (1-3 times a week or less)

1. Charge your batteries MON / WED / FRI nights only for a minimum of 12 hours
2. Do not turn off the charger once the green light appears as this normally indicates that the batteries are at 80% and the charger moves into ‘trickle’ mode
3. You MUST ‘cycle’ the batteries at least once a week for 1 hour

PLEASE NOTE:

** NEVER plug a charger into a scooter or powerchair when the charger is turned ON, this could cause a surge into the machine and damage the controller
** ONLY use the charger output size (4amp or 8amp) that came with the machine, if in doubt just ask us to check for you, using the wrong size can damage the batteries
** 4amp charger – suitable for batteries up to 45ah
** 8 amp charger – suitable for batteries from 50ah upwards
