    sorry for the delay. with the charger plugged in i had voltage going

    in but no dc voltage coming out.

    My father has a used chair that i purchased a few months ago. I replaced the bateries in it and it seemed to work fine, but the batteries will notcharge, when you first plug in the power cordthe onboardmeter jumps to about 6 then goes back to zero. It is possiable t put one of the float battery chargers on it liek used for a boat?

    And was the voltage between 25 and 30 VDC? Did you also measure this at the batteries while charging? If so, this is the normal charging voltage. If you have it at the charger, the charger unit is OK, and you need to check your wiring. If you have it at your batteries, then the problem is something other than charging.

    Exactly how do you know that its not working? Have you measured the output voltage?

You will need to replace the charger. I can order one for you, but I need your serial number to be sure to get the correct one. Pride has a one year warranty for parts. Contact me privately via my email: D*H*u*d*s*o*n at G*M*a*i*l dot com.

Why won't my Pride Go-Go Elite Traveller batteries charge using a trickle charger? The batteries are new, but my charger quit working.


Hi Robert , can you clarify what you mean by a trickle charger ?, any chance of a photo of the charger ?

using a standard gel battery charger , the charger will charge the batteries in question and once fully charged, the charger will trickle charge the batteries.. This is a standard operation and recommended by battery makers...

My charger on Rascal 600 does not charge. After checking all the common reasons without any luck I remove the charger and could not measure any voltage output. My Dealer sezs the charger won't work without...


Most chargers are 3 pin. Plus and minus charging voltage to the
batteries and a third pin monitors the actual battery voltage, so
that the automatic charger can turn itself off once the batteries
are fully charged. As Brad has mentioned, the connection
from the charger has to be made for the charger to produce
a voltage at those pins. The best way to see if it is charging
is to remove the seat and measure across both batteries..
assuming it's a 24volt system like most. Charging voltage
can be as high as 28volts across the positive of one 12volt
battery (connected in series to the other 12v battery) and the
negative of the other battery. You can monitor the charging
voltage across the batteries with a digital volt meter.

My victory 4 mobilty wont charge the green light is very faint/the charger was tested working.so why wont my scooter charge


make sure battery cables are secure at battery terminals and clean.how old are the batteries.If the batteries run down fast they are no good.a good way to test them is put scooter against some thing solid and go forward.If the battery indicator drops to o the batteries are no good.It takes about 10 hours to charge the batteries

Can i over charge my mobility scooter go go pride


Yes you can overcharge a battery, it all depends on the charger your using. Most chargers are single stage chargers. Most scooters come with a single stage charger. My scooter has a built in single stage charger What this type of charger does is output a constant 24v @ 4amps.The problem is batteries amperage requirements decrease as the battery charges. An overcharge will occur when the battery is charged. It requires very little amperage to maintain a charge on a fully charged battery. A single stage charger like mine will output 4amps regardless of the state of charge of the battery. Batteries bring charged with single stage chargers loose their electrolyte. What happens is overcharged batteries break down the electrolyte into oxygen and hydrogen. So overcharging will cause a battery to "boil-out" its electrolyte. Batteries don't work without electrolyte. In the old days there were only single stage chargers. That was the state of the art back then. So to cope with the constant overcharging batteries had refill ports where you could replenish the electrolyte using distilled water.

Scooter batteries are far and away different from the lead acid of the 1970's. Scooter batteries are sealed, they are deep cycle, they use a glass mat soaked in gelled electrolyte. These glass mat batteries optimize the electrolyte used so they can use allot less of it. These newer batteries have a lot more power in a lot smaller package but they have a draw back, they must be charged properly. You can absolutely can not charge these batteries with a single stage charger. Actually you can charge with this device but you will loosed electrolyte each time you charge.

I use a three stage charger 24v @ 5amp. This charger s different from a single stage. Its what they term a "smart charger" it monitors the state of charge of the battery. As the battery charges it turns down the amperage. When the battery is fully charged the amperage is turned low enough were the charge is maintained. The entire charging process is designed to preserve electrolyte. In short this type charger will not overcharge the battery.

Go-go battery won't charge


PLEASE NOTE: The Low Voltage Protection feature on this battery charger will not allow the charger to activate unless it is connected to a battery pack that has a minimum voltage of 16 volts. Battery packs with voltages below that level of charge cannot be recovered or recharged. This is a safety feature to prevent overheating in the event of a faulty battery. This battery charger will not output any voltage to the XLR connector until connected to a battery pack meeting this minimum voltage requirement.

Scooter's horn works but the battery is not charging when plugged in.


hi, right first of all, check the charger, check the fuse located in the charger if fitted, best way to test it is to try it on another scooter.

Now if youre sure the charger is working ok look at the charger socket is it a loose fitting if so wiggle it about gently, does the charger accept it charging ? is there a charging light on the scooter ? if so does it change colour when inserted , if not bad charger or charger fitting ? now if you have a multimeter , remove the seat and the cover under that , mind how you do this as it easily to hurt your back, show now you can see the batteries , check the leads to the batteries, have they come loose, now using the meter put a prode on a red terminal and the other lead on the other battery black terminal, now change terminal if no reading until you get about 20 to 25 volts , now inserted the battery charger , has the voltage changed or watch as it will start to rise , give it 20 minutes or so and if nothing changed , it pointing at your charger as having a fault ,even if the batteries are no good it will see show some output, now if the voltage measured on the batteries is lower than 18 Volts depending on scooter it will never move but the horn will still work as that requires only 12V.

Please leave feedback if this helps

We have a 11 month old elite traveler scooter. The battery will not take a charge. We have had no previous problems. Any suggestions?


I just fixed this problem in a Go Go Elite that was less than 6 months old. We would plug in the charger and the "charge" light would not turn on, just the "power light" I took out the battery pack (check manual for instructions), removed the cover (8 philips head screws) and checked the voltage on the two batteries. One read 4.5 volts and the other 4.7 volts. They should both read at least 11 volts, ideally 12 volts. Evidently the Pride charger will not work if it detects that the batteries are too low. So I took out one battery at a time and connected a 12 volt auto trickle charger to it for 3 hours on each battery. Checked voltages and it brought them back up to 11.5 volts. I reinstalled the battery pack and then connected the Pride charger and THEN it showed a "Charge" light. I left the pride charger on for 12 hours and it brought it up to full charge.
Advice: Don't let your batteries get too low or the factory charger will not work.

I have a golden 3 wheel scooter dose charger


If the charger is working correctly, it should turn itself off automatically (may go into float chrarge depending on type of charger). There should be an LED or an amp meter on the charger to tell you when the charge is complete. When the batteries are charged, you should be able to leave the charger switched on and it should cause no harm UNLESS the charger is faulty, in which case it will continue charging and damage the batteries. You should be able to tell if this is happening as the batteries will become very warm. If the batteries are losing their charge after you have switched the charger off, it is most likely that your batteries need replacing. Failing that, you may have a short somewhere which unfortunately, could be difficult to find.
