Is there a battery replacement for my L4 that will give me a longer running time?


There isn't room onboad for bigger batteries. But you can cheat by constructing a two wheeled trailer just big enough to hold two more batteries they can be as big as you want. When the on-board batteries get low flip a switch and your running on out-board batteries. Be sure the trailor is conntructed to be as lite weight as possible. you can buy trailers for scooter. I did it the lazy way, I wired my external batteries directly to my internal battery terminals due to amp loading.If they are lets say 50amp to your 15amp on- board batteries you are going to go way more miles than with15amp batteries. WARNING this setup you don't hook fully charged big batteries into discharged small. batteries. I don't let my on-board batteries get to discharged. I've spliced into the main battery terminal lines..so that they are thick enough to handle the amp load which are 12 gage. I also have a 50 amp connector between the external scooter and the trailer for quick disconnect

Mobility scooter goes slow


driving range of 20 to 38 miles per charge depending on unit. Check out our E Wheels electric power bikes, and mopeds that goes 20 plus mph. Want a fast outdoor mobility scooter, check out the EW - 36 that goes 15 mph. This deluxe outdoor power scooter has a driving range of about 25 miles per charge, depending on the terrain and the weight of the user.

How long does the scooter charge generaly last?


You should be able to travel a couple of miles and return on a full charge. Of course the slower speed you select to use when you travel will increase the distance some. Hope this helps

I have a scootamart large scooter,not sure if 6 or 8 mph.batteries have been checked and are perfect but can only travel 5 or 6 miles on a full charge.what can be wrong.


Hi. How many amp/hours are your batteries?
Who tested your batteries, and how did they test them.
I have had batteries tested by an auto electrical technician, who said the batteries were OK. I knew at the time that the batteries were faulty.
What he did was do a short high current test, that he would normally do on a car battery.
To test batteries in a scooter you have to do a constant current test on fully charged batteries, and monitor the battery voltage. When the battery voltage drops to 10.5 volts across the 12 volt battery, that is considered a flat battery. Take the time elapsed for the test, and you can roughly work out the amp/hour rating of your batteries.
The amp/hour rating of a battery is worked out on a 10 or 20 discharge. A 40 amp/hour battery can supply 2 amps/ hour for 20 hours.
If you take 20 amps per hour, you will not get 2 hours of use. You will probably only get 1.5 to 1.75 hours of use. The more current ( amps ) you take out of a battery, the less amp/hours it will supply.
The best way to test your batteries is a constant current test, but they take a few hours, or try new batteries.

Also how long do you charge your batteries for. Most chargers need to be on at least over night to fully charge your batteries.
Some chargers have a green LED that comes on when the batteries are nearly full. This green LED is a guide only, and most batteries still need a few more hours to do a full charge.
Good luck. Neil.

WHAT ARE THE NEWEST AND LONG LASTING BATTERIES I CAN BUY FOR MY MOBILITY SCOOTER. I WANT TO TRAVEL FARTHER THAN THE 20 MILES WITHOUT RECHARGING THE BATTERIES. ALSO I WOULD LIKE THEM TO BE SMALL AND LIGHT...


Hi. When you are looking for good quality batteries, they will have a 1 year warranty on them. If you get offered only a six month warranty, don't buy them. Good batteries weigh more than cheaper batteries, because they have more lead in them.
To get a good distance, you need to fit the biggest batteries that will physically fit in your machine.
Batteries are designed to handle a certain number of "charging cycles". If you run a battery down by approx 75%, you will only get a small number of "charging cycles". If you only use 25% of the batteries capacity, you will get 100's of charging cycles.
Gel batteries seem to be the better choice. Most AGM sealed batteries are designed to be stand-by batteries. They will work fine in your machine but only for light use. I have seen these batteries last for 7 years, but only for light use.
Good luck. Neil.
