Question about Invacare Health & Beauty
The batteries quit...My daughter took them out so I could find the numbers to buy new ones. Son in law replaced the batteries and it isn't charging or running.

Hopefully you have kept the old set of batteries, I would get them tested plus have the charger tested also.

This scooter require two batteries, not one. It is usually a good idea to replace both batteries at the same time, even though one is obviously bad, and the other "seems" okay. These 12 volt DC batteries (VDC) work in tandem to produce the 24 volts that the scooter operates on. In a perfect world, they would both live a long and happy life, but reality is that some die young, others old. Since they are joined together, the one that's going out saps the life out of the other one, so take a bullet and replace both batteries. Make sure you completely charge the scooter when you get the new ones in. Verify that your charger is working properly. To properly charge the 24 VDC system, the chargers have to have an output of about 26-28VDC. The output must be higher than the rated voltage of the two batteries put together to charge. While you have the shell off the scooter, you can see if the charger is working by measuring across the terminal on each battery with the charger off. Note the meter reading. It should be 12-13 VDC. Put it on the charger and retake the reading, and each battery should show an increase in the voltage due to the boost from the charger. After three hours, each battery should show about a 13.5 VDC reading which should hold above 12 for a good 8-10 miles. Always charge your batteries overnight, and if not in use, disconnect them completely with a full charge on the batteries.

Check to see if the scooter is in freewheel mode. To know if the batteries are bad you need to charge them for 10 - 12 hours and then have them tested with a load tester.

SOURCE: Scooter stops intermittenly
Hi. Does the machine stop suddenly, or does it slowly stop as it normally would? Does this happen on hills or slopes?
A lot of scooters have a self-resetting circuit breaker connected to the battery leads. If the machine draws to much current ( amps ) then the circuit breaker trips out. After a few minutes the circuit breaker will reset and you can continue.
This could mean that the circuit breaker is faulty or that the motor is drawing to much current, or is burnt out.
Some machines have a very light duty circuit breaker, and these can trip out often. I have changed many of these circuit breakers for this reason.
Check all your battery leads are secure and tight.
If it is still a problem, get a serviceman to check the motor current is what it should be.
Good luck. Neil.

SOURCE: I HAVE A RASCAL MOBILITY
I do not know of a Scooter graveyard, but I will look for one. I found a site that sells many different types of 24volt battery chargers. If you have a special port on the scooter and you still have your old charger you can cut off the end of the bad charger and wire it onto a new battery charger. Now as with most lead/acid battery's any charger with a built in volt/amp regulator will work.Your old charger spect's are for a 4amp max rating, Any constant 2.5amp or better should recharge your battery's overnight. I am sending you a link to a site called Battery Stuff.com where you can find a 24volt charger for as low as $89.oo, Now I understand this may be a bit out of your range, but a new battery charger for a laptop computer will run about $115.oo. So for a Heavy Duty scooter that is not to bad. Plus it may out last 2 sets of battery's. Now use this site as a reference and maybe you can find one you like local. Hope this helps Fixya up.
