How do I buy batteries?

Hello Vince,
Batteries for mobility scooters are something of a problem.

Sealed lead acid batteries are used a lot in mobility scooters and they do tend to stop working quite suddenly.

Because of the way a mobility scooter is used the temptation to buy the less expensive standby type of battery should be avoided and for the best lifespan and performance it should be either a battery designated as a traction battery or a deep cycle battery.
This type of battery is designed to be repeatedly discharged and recharged whereas standby batteries (and ordinary car batteries) are not.

Traction quality batteries are more expensive and prices vary quite a lot. Replacing like for like is best and they are usually standard sizes and capacities so a particular type could be supplied by half a dozen different manufacturers at half a dozen different prices.
There are shops and businesses springing up dedicated to selling and servicing disability scooters but they tend to charge a significant profit margin for their services and such things as batteries.

I was recently asked to supply two disability scooter batteries and I checked with Yuasa, one of my favourite battery brands, and they told me a choice of two specifications in the same size case and provided contact details for local stockists.
A couple of phone calls later and all I had to do was wait for them to be delivered. I chose the higher specification and surprisingly they were cheaper where I bought from but more expensive from other places.

Like tyres and other things there are no retail prices and buying in bulk brings lower prices. A busy retailer tends to pass on the savings so buying mail order from a big city as I did could save more than the cost of carriage over buying local.

I hope this helps.

Pride Mobility Scooter just put in new batteries went to the shops and on the way back just stopped had to push it home not good shop is only 1Km away now it seems ok but don't want to risk it. Red li

Needs a full overnight charge of at least 12 hours and left on charge even when the lights tell you it's is charged up.then get into the habit of running it right down to improve the storage stamina of battery.good idea to take charger out with you so if you get a chance to top it up somewhere whilst away from home.remember in cold weather these things can't travel as far.

How to make my Rascal scooter faster

I would not recommend this as you use these on the pavement/walk way where people could easily be ran over and hurt.

George Freed, I don't understand the terminology, like whats a pod and where is is?? Thanks, Jim

I think the following is the post that is in question. I don't see "pod" anywhere in this text. However "pot" is mentioned quite a few times. Do you know what a pot is? Its short for potentiometer, which is kind of variable register when you turn it, it changes its resistance. What controls the speed of the scooter is the toggle throttle lever which are connected to pots. If you have anymore questions please feel free to ask. Be patient i just got my gull bladder removed, it wasn't fun.

You don't want to ever bypass anything on these scooters, doing so will either get someone hurt or silverly damage the scooter. There is a good reason your scooter is shutting down. The controller monitors the amperage flow, if at any time the amperage is to high for to long a period of time the controller will shut down the motor, so as you can see there is no sensor to bypass. Also the controller will send a code 4 failure out to a LED out on tiller head. There should be a lamp blinking on the tiller head when the motor is off line. The service lamp is cyclic, in this case the lamp to flash 4 times pause flash 4 times pause.

iT sounds to me like you have one or more shorted windings on the armature of your drive motor which is apart of the trans-axle assembly. TO BE SURE remove the entire trans-axle module. I have a Rascal 600t all i have to do to remove my trans-axle is to remove to quick pins and my entire trans-axle assembly comes away from the scooter. Take the entire assembly down to your local motor repair shop that can rewind motors. Thay will check out the motor, take it apart and clean all the carbon dust from the brushes that gets all over the interior of the motor, doesn't do the motor bearing any good. Rewinding a motor isn't inexpensive costing $200 and up depending on the size and complexity of the motor. But the scooter trans-axle cost is astoundingly high at $1,500 and up. They say they are sealed unit and that they can not be repaired. In reality trans-axles are quite simple to repair and easily repaired. The only difficult thing are the scooter companies that will not come across with the parts and info we need in order for us to keep our scooters in good repair. So ii'd take the trans-axle down to the motor shop. They don't charge anything to check it out. When they do maintenance you will know its working right. When troubleshooting problem with scooter you eliminate half the machine when you eliminate the trans-axle. Get back to me once you've checked it out

If you want to do a check of the trans-axle your self. You can do this by blocking the drive wheels off the ground. Turn the speed pot to
slow. Just give the motor enough power to just move the tires very slowly. Does it take allot of throttle to move the motor. Could be stiff bearings. Does the motor stall out. Hook an amp meter in series to the motor, run the motor real slow. Does the meter needle bounce around allot. If it does that means the winding are not so good. Now floor scooter. Does the trans-axle get hot. There usually a brake assembly at the end of the motor. When you start or stop the motor put your fingers on it you should feel it engage and disengage. Is that brake dragging, does it get hot. This brake assembly gives me lots of grief, drying out it gets stuck. WARNING never use WD40 it eats certain plastics and gets gummy. I use pure silicon oil spray. Hope this helps.

I own a pride mobility scooter with an issue of stopping

It could be a loose battery connector and the controller heats up when it's trying to pull amperage out of the batteries but can't because of the loose connection Try tightening bolts on batteries but disconnect them first. Also it could be the brake on the motor and if the unit isn't shutting off the lights on the tiller blink in patterns to let you know what problems to check for.
