Battery power on mobility scooter

My mothers shoprider deluxe 4 wheel mobility scooter has lost some of its speed and distance,was told batteries u/s and replaced them [ no joy ] new batteries fully charged goes approx 100m and the power and battery level indicator starts to drop when in motion, stop and the battery level indicator is back up to full. I have checked that the front wheels are free to turn and the magnetic brake is operating as it should.

    Do you have a voltmeter? Check the voltage on both batteries 5 minutes after charging but before you use the scooter and post the results here.

The Hand Control has probably bent in from use. ( Where she Pushes the throttle Control )
Grab a hold of it and bend it out towards you slightly
The part about the indicator going down when she moves and back up when she stops is normal

Most scooters show a drop on the battery level meter when in use, as long as it is`nt slowing down it should`nt be a prob. I mean,when you engage the throttle you ARE putting a load on the batteries,so it`s only par for the course that the indicator would drop a bit.

My Battery on my Shoprider Delux is fully charged but lasts only about 45mins is my Battery Knackered?

first of all , this is a common mistake , can you borrow another charger to make sure that is not causing the problem , you need to convince yourself that the charger is okay then lok at the batteries located under the cover located under the seat, make sure the batterys connectors are clean and tight, if all fails sadly it is a batteries replacement.

No power

The scooter has several safety cutouts, Make sure the charger is unplugged, the free-wheel shift is fully in the engaged position. Then turn the key off and back on. Make sure the speed pot is in the middle position.

I have the Shoprider Delux scooter.I brought it second hand.I put in a new battery but its not holding the charge. I seem to have to charge it up before any trips out.When its fully charged and I go about...


When you say that you put in a new battery, I hope you mean new batteries. This particular scooter takes 2 batteries and just changing one will leave the remaining one in poor condition. Make sure that you have replaced the batteries with the correct size and type. This scooter takes 2, 40 amp hour batteries. Sealed gel AGM batteries are preferred. The batteries should have the number 40 on them with a date code. You need new, fresh batteries to have them work properly. A date code tag of A1 indicates the A month(1st month) or January of 2011 (1 is for 2011). If you are not sure of the battery condition a local shop can load test them for you.
There is a possibility with a 5 year old scooter that a worn motor/brake will cause excessive current draw and drain your batteries. A qualified technician can determine this for you with a service call.
Hope this helps.
