Have you had the batteries load tested? How do you know the batteries are good?

Posted on Apr 21, 2013

Testimonial: "Took the batteries back to Batteries Plus and had them tests. Load test was good but the capacity test showed batteries should be replaced. Replaced batteries but chair drives slower then it did with the bad batteries....barely moves when on low setting. "

    No load test. By good I meant they hold a charge...I took them out of the chair after the onboard charger charged them and hooked them up to a regular battery charger and they were at 100%. Batteries are about 6 mos old. Where can I get them load tested?

    Many auto part stores have the ability to load test, like autozone and advanced auto. The load test will test the batteries ability to hold a load over time.

I am getting a flashing green light when I try to charge my batteries on the Pronto M51 what does this mean


why did you change the batteries, did you verify that it wasn't the charger in the first place, sometime the charger will appear to charge but actually isn't. put a meter on one battery then plug in charger if voltage goes up charger is good if not look for loose connections and or bad charger.

Will gel cell batteries work on my m51 chair? scooter store said no, and will only supply lead acid batteries. THANKS!


Sure they will but according to MK batteries good AGM atteries will perform just as well and for less cost. And thats probably why they told you that. They don't want to incur the higher cost because Medicare will only pay so much for the replacement batteries. Hope this helps you

PRONTO M51 FEELS LIKE I AM DRIVING OVER ROUGH ROAD AFTER REPLACING THE BATTERIES. WHY?


If you chair was down for a long time before getting new batteries the tires could have developed flat spots on them. Also could have brush problems in the motors that make the motors run jerky from sitting too long.

How do I charge My Pronto M51 motorized wheelchair?


Margie,   Yes you may charge it overnight. If you use it everyday,charge it every night. Once the charger senses 24 volts it stops sending a charge,so they cannot be overcharged.  I suggest when you go to bed put on the charger and unplug it when you get up in the morning.
