Your connection willl be governed by the size of the inverter. Some smaller units plug into a vehcile's "power outlet." This used to be called the cigarette lighter. This is usually true for inverters up to about 400 watts.

For larger inverters, you should have received a set of cables, one with a red clamp and one with a black clamp. The black clamp gets attached the vehicle baterry's negative terminal and the red clamp goes to the vehicle's postive terminal.

If you plan to use the inverter for any length of time, the vehicle should be runnig to prevent the battery from going dead.

Had to replace the headlight so had to take the battery out replaced headlight put battery back in now it wont crank just a clicking noise

It wont crank,just clicking noise. The battery terminals are not connected properly. Recheck battery connections.If battery connections are properly connected then its possible that starter and starter solenoid are not receiving voltage,due to this its just clicking. Most probably its connection issue between battery terminals or problem with starter and starter solenoid connections. ----- Click this link below for more troubleshooting:--- ---------- This will help.Thanks.Helpmech.

I have 4 x 12v batteries 7ah each. if i put these 4 batteries together . how many volt and AH would this be. please reply . thank you

It depends on how you connect the batteries. If you connect the negative of battery one to the positive of battery 2, the negative of battery 2 to the positive of battery 3 the negative of battery 3 to the positive of battery 4 then the positive of battery 1 and the negative of battery 4 will give you 48v 7AH. (This is known as connecting in series.)

If you connect the four positives together. Connect the 4 negatives together it will give you 12v 28 AH. (This is known as parallel connection.)

If you connect the negative of battery 1 to the positive of battery 2. Connect the negative of battery 3 to the positive of battery 4. Connect the positive of battery 1 to the positive of battery 3 and the negative of battery 2 to the negative of battery 4. You'll get 24v 14AH from the connection of the positive of battery 1 and battery 3, and the negative of battery 2 to battery 4. (This is known as series parallel connection)

My battery pack on my fold n go has a short and

hi, ok now you need to check your wiring within the battery pack ,

If there are two batteries, you need to make sure that negative wire of one battery connects to the positive of the other battery,

now use the postiive and negative battery connections to connect to the scooter , that will give you your 24volts,

battery 1 connects battery 2
+ | - <------> + | -

== 24Volts

use the + of battery 1 & - of battery 2 to connect to the scooter.

Hi there.
The problem is battery if the machine works on AC power only, you will have to get a new battery or continue to use it on mains power until you can get a new battery.

Fixed screen, battery went!

There is a single plug with 3 connections for the battery. It can be accessed simply by removeing the back cover. (Don't forget to remove the 2 screws either side of the usb/charging connector first)

If the battery is not connected, then re-connect it.

Unfortunately, the batteries rarely fail on this model. Usually, a charging fault is caused by a faulty charge circuit on the main board.
