Question about Ctm HS-2800 Power Wheelchair
I have a CTM HS-2800. I can't find the correct amp hour batteries. can I use a different ah rating and still get the performance from the power chair without damaging the motors?
Absolutely not. Higher amphour batts don't put out more voltage, just more voltage longer.
The 2800 takes U-1 gel cell batts that run about 33 amphours...good for about 12-16 miles. You might be able to fit bigger batts in it, but measure first before you buy...gel batts are pricey.

More AMPS, more time riding your unit. But the HS-2800 can only accept the U1 batteries 12v 36ah amps. Bigger batteries will not fit because there is a lever going across from left motor to right motor.

No amp/hour ratings are a mesurement of time. 1 amp for 30 hours or 30 amps for one hour, same just a rating of the battery, the motor will draw what amps it needs reguardless of the rating, more amp/hours = more run time, that said get good batteries, and sealed gel or glass mat NOT a car wet cell battery, a company called MK makes some good ones and will have the exact size dimensions and rating

Not recommended. The controllers on power chairs are commonly rated only for the amperage of the batteries you got with the chair. If you put in higher amp batteries you run the risk of burning up the controller.
