Question about Pride Mobility Products Go-Go Elite Traveller Scooter - 4 wheel w/12 AH Batteries & Charger + Flat Free Tires - Silver

1 Answer

Battery charging How often should the batteries to my Go-Go Ultra be charged? I use the scooter about twice a week and charge it every 10 days or so. The batteries are about a year old but don't seem to hold a charge. Should I charge it every time I've finished using it?

If you use it for an hour or so than I would charge it, at least 8 hours. Always charge it at least 8 hours. To find out if the batteries are bad have them load tested.

Is it best to keep my scooter on charge all the time or what


Lead acid or deep cycle gel batteries are best kept on trickle charge.

Take care of your batteries
How do I get the most life out of my new batteries?
To maximise the life of your batteries, it is best to complete a full charge for the first 1015 times that you use your scooter. This simply means however far you travel, do not just top-up for a short while, but complete the full charge cycle every time. Your batteries will not work at their best until this process has been carried out and will prolong power and performance. You will find the distance your scooter can travel will gradually increase over its first few weeks as your batteries reach optimum efficiency.
When is it best to charge my batteries?
After 10-15 cycles have been completed, a normal charging routine can be adopted
  • Depending on the capacity of the batteries, the charge time can vary up to a maximum of 16 hours
  • The charger will automatically shut down when the batteries are fully charged, so you do not have to worry about switching it off. This is ideal for overnight charging.
  • Whenever possible try to avoid interrupting a charge cycle. It is always best to complete a full charge cycle as excessive short term charging is detrimental to battery life.
  • For the very best results and to maximise battery life, charge fully before and after use.
  • Please refer to charger indicator lights for battery status.

How do I store and maintain my batteries?
  • If your scooter will not be used for a while or is being stored, make sure the batteries are fully charged first.
  • If your scooter is not being used, make sure the batteries receive a refresher charge every 14 weeks. Alternatively if you are planning not to use your scooter for over 6 weeks, fully charge your batteries and then disconnect.
  • Fully charge the batteries before re-use.
  • Never leave the batteries in a discharged state.
  • Avoid damp, hot or cold extremes when storing your scooter.
  • Batteries are totally sealed and do not require any maintenance apart from charging.

Charging
1.Switch off your scooter and remove key.
2.Plug charger into scooter charge socket.
3.Push charger plug into wall socket and switch socket on.
4.There will be a light sequence on the charger but as all chargers are different, refer to charger instructions.
5.Most scooters will have an inhibit mode which will shut down all the scooters electrics while the charger is plugged in.
6.Only use the charger supplied with your scooter.
7.Do not smoke or use a ***** flame while batteries are being charged.
8.Do not leave charger plugged into your scooter when the charger is switched off as this may discharge your batteries.
9.For a complete charge do not switch off, unplug or interrupt the charge cycle until it is complete.
It is worth considering that in extreme cold weather the time your batteries take to charge can increase by up to 20%. The range of your scooter will also vary based on weather conditions. Also when your batteries reach the end of their useful life, you will find that charging time will become much shorter. The amount of charge the batteries can hold will become less and less as will your scooter range until ultimately they become unusable.

Battery won't stay charged and has been repalced twice since October


hi, you replaced the batteries twice? using the same charger, have you tried another charger ?, okay let me tell you about mobility scooter chargers, it quite complex but some chargers will charge your new batteries correctly due to resistance etc, it more complex than this however now as your batteries get older your charger maybe having a problem charging your batteries , not because they faulty, now this is due to internal resistance once again the batteries problem reappears within 3 to 6 six months , it could be just the batteries are not good enough , I have seen a whole combination of faults , please bear in mind there are some dodgy batteries out on the market....


so


1. first try another charger

The green light on your charger indicates a full charge but you know thats not right since you didn't charge the batteries when they were in storage they have dropped so low the charger cannot detect them and provide a charge. The batteries will need to be replaced with new ones. Charge before use and charge for at least 20 days to get them operating at 100% now you will have to use it for those 20 days to get the batteries used to charging charge every night when you go to bed and unplug when you get up in the morning. If you do have to leave the chair for a week or so put up fully charged and charge once a week overnight. If you put the chair in storage again disconnect the batteries from the chair and store with a full charge. Hope this helps you

I have a jet3 ultra that has never been used. In October we bought new batteries. It worked;however, we have not used it or charges it until now. The omnimeter reads 0 and only the one red light shines. ...


amy why did you not keep the batteries charged? even new batteries have to be charged before use. Now plug in the charger and look at the meter with the charger plugged in the meter will show some reading around 4-5 amps. Let the charger work overnight when you get up in the morning fully charged the meter will read zero. Turn on the chair and all the battery lights should be lit. If after charging over night you are still getting one red light then you blew 170.00 and no amount of charging will bring them back. Sorry I wish I had better news. If you replace the batteries charge fully before use and then use the chair some each day and charge nightly for 20 days this will break in the batteries and get them operating at 100%. If you then only use the chair sometimes always put it up fully charged and charge at least once a week If you use the chair for that day charge overnight and it will be ready to use again when you need it. If you are going to leave the chair unattended for 6 months then fully charge the batteries and disconect them from the chair until you need it again New batteries every 6 months can get expensive Hope this helps you

It sounds like the batteries have gone bad and need to be replaced.

The batteries contain a gel that needs to have current run through it on a regular basis (at least 8 hours one day a week) of the gel will solidify. What is probably happening is charger light will either stay green, go to green after a very short time, or the charger will be connected for hours or days and the light never changes indicating a full charge. When you turn on the power chair, nothing happens. The charger may indicate the batteries are full, but instead of being full of power, they are full of crud as the gel inside them has oxidized. Since you are the second owner of the scooter, you will need to replace the batteries on your own. Check the owenr's manual for the correct type or contact Pride Mobility at 800-800-8586. Good luck!

DRIVEMEDICAL PHOENIX 3 WHEEL Just bought it and charged it for 10hours. When I put battery into scooter, all the battery lights come on- 2red 1yellow 2green.....so is it charged? are the connections loose?...


Wez Thats a normal indication of a full charge. The battery level indicator will go down as you use the scooter. Always charge the scooter overnite if you use it a good bit during the day. With new batteries it will take 8-10 charging to break them in and operating at 100%. Always store fully charged and if not used alot charge once a week after you have charged the batteries 8-10 times

Hope this helps

How to charge my panterra transport scooter,do i leave switch on or off and for how long?


tony you can charge it either way with switch on or off and if you have used the scooter alot during the day and the battery level lights are in the red charge overnight. The charger light will turn from yellow to green when the batteries are fully charged It really is a good idea to get into the habit of charging overnight wehn you have used the scooter all day. It helps the batteries to recycle them thru a charge cycle when they run down. Now if the scooter is used rarely then make sure it is fully charged when it stored and charge once a week when idle. Hope this helps you

How long does it take to fully charge Companion II batteries?


Hi. Always charge your batteries overnight after each use. Do not charge your batteries for days or weeks at a time unless you have a good quality automatic charger.
Most 4 amp chargers, charge the batteries up to approx 28.5 volts, and will maintain this voltage forever if left on. This will eventually shorten the life of the batteries.
The Invacare 8 amp charger is a fully automatic charger. It will take the batteries up to about 28.5 volts, it will hold this voltage for a few hours, and then drop the voltage to 27.6 volts ( 13.8 volts across each battery ). These chargers can be left on for weeks at a time.
Good luck. Neil.
