Question about NRS Hoveround MPV 4 - Hovaround Used Electric Wheelchair

2 Answers

Hoveround MPV4 Just quit

I have purchased 2 AGM Batteries last year. I always kept the batteries charged. Three times now I will be using the Hoveround and it just stopped dead as if the brakes were put on. I was almost thrown out of the chair. I turned the switch off and on because the indicator lights on the control were off, and nothing happened. About 1/2 hour latter the lights came on and I started to use the chair and approx a distance of 20' it happened again. Now 24 hours latter I still can't get lights on the control to come on. I may need new batteries but I don't want to waste the money if the problem is something else. Can you help???

Make sure the connectors at the batteries are not loose and battery fuse is plugged in all the way

The Hoveround MPV-4 had 2 different types of battery connectors. The old type had threaded edges that you would plug in, then screw them tight. The new type has a release clip on one side. They switched from the old to the new because of continuity problems such as this. Which type of battery connector do you have?

MPV 5 requires 2ea 12V, up to 35 ah agm or gel batteries. (The ah will vary depending on the brand of battery used). My personal preference is Werker batteries (12V, 35ah agm) at Batteries Plus. If you can get the chair there, they will install them for you and give you a 1 year warranty which is 6 months longer than most.

ggirl why did you buy a pig in the poke they should refund your money because the batteries should have a six month warranty. Now always ask for the date code on batteries you are buying they shouldn't be any older than 4 months old. There are good batteries out there but if I offend anyone I'm sorry but MK batteries are very good also Interstate batteries and probably others that I'm not aware of. The best way to insure good batteries are buying fresh batteries, Charge them before you use the chair and always get into the habit of charging overnite if you use the chair daily. Never leave the charger plugged in more that 12 hours and if you don't use the chair daily charge at least once a week and always put up fully charged. Mk recommends charging the batteries daily for the first 20 days. Never run the batteries or let them fall below the red light on your battery level indicator. Your chair runs on about a 5 volt range (26-21 volts) after that the red light blinks like crazy. If it falls below 20 volts the charger will not charge the batteries. If you take care of them they should last you 3 years or more. Hope this helps

Looking for body part orframe


Most parts must be purchased directly from Hoveround. You can mail a check or do a credit card over the phone for payment. Batteries and tires may be found locally. Some items cannot be shipped; they have to be installed by a Hoveround Tech.

Where do we buy new battery for hoveround MPV4?


The battery needed is a U1 battery, 12 volt,33 amps. You can find them at any battery warehouse store like Batteries Plus, Interstate Batteries, etc. The cost between seventy five and one hundred twenty dollars each and you will need to replace both at the same time. If you are the original owner of your Power Chair, your health insurtance may cover the replacement.

Have a hoveround and it is three years old used one fall season and has been stored in a garage but won't start now


If you stored it for a long period of time (three weeks or more) the batteries have worn down and need to be replaced. These type of batteries must be charged at least once a week to maintian life in them.

I have a 2000 mpv4 hoveround that has only been used twice,its new,its been inside all this time,has the battery charger, how much should i ask for it?


Assuming it has fresh batteries (within the last 90 days or so), you could expect to get $200-300 for it. After five years, powerchairs have little value as they lose about 20%/year average, but actually a lot more the first year, etc. like a car. New batteries for this chair cost about $135-155, and it requires two, so that's basically the value of the chair. If the batteries are shot, consider donating it to a charitable group and taking a tax write-off instead.

If your Power Wheel Chair has been sitting idle for a while, the batts may need to be completely replaced. There is a gel inside the batts that need to have a current run through them via the charger on a regualr basis otherwise it will solidify. If the charger lights are onm you have connected the charger correctly for over 24 hours and the batteries are still not showing they have been charge, there may be damaged cells which means both batteries need to be totally replaced.
