Question about RTO Mobil Line Mobility Scooter Chair Battery Charger31004

1 Answer

I have a chair that is two years old and has never been used. Charged it up for two days but it still won't run. Perhaps it needs a new battery as the battery was never used. My mom hated the chair and I want to donate it to someone who needs it.

Hi. When you charged it up, did the battery indicator lights on the control panel light up?
If you take the batteries to a battery shop, they can some times get the batteries to take a charge.
I have had a few batteries that have been sitting for a long time, what I do is charge them seperately for a few seconds on 24 volts. A quick charge of 24 volts across a 12 volt battery will sometimes break down the sulphate that builds up on the internal plates of the battery. Once you have done this. charge the battery properly, and then discharge it, ( you can use a light bulb ).
Charge and discharge the batteries 5 or 6 times over the next few days. This will hopefully let the batteries take enough charge to let someone try out the machine. The batteries will not be as good as new ones, but if you are donating the machine, they could buy their own batteries.
Make sure that when you are working with batteries, you use good safety rules, batteries are dangerous, and will give of hydrogen gas, which can explode. If in doubt about your abilities, get the battery shop to charge them for you.
Good luck. Neil.

My chair will not charge,chkd all connections,good.chair has not been used or charged for at least 2 years.it is a2009 chair.


Those batteries may be 8 years old and is probably time for replacement. Batteries should be charged regularly or they will die and not recharge if left. Go to a battery store and get them checked out.

My chair has been sitting for three years now won't take a charge and run did the main battery die


Time for a new battery. The worst thing you can do to a battery is let it sit for a long time. Once the battery was activated it is best to keep it charged while not in use. Use a trickle charger while storing your chair.

My chair has been sitting for 4 months in garage. Chair MPV5 was rarely used. When charging, battery charger indicator shows green light. Chair still does not turn on. What should I be doing?


Replace the batteries and charge before use then charge nightly for 20 days Use the chair daily so you can get a good charge nightly to get the batteries operating at 100% After the 20 days If you don't use the chair daily always store fully charged and then charge once a week overnight. Should work fine once you get the new batteries in You will need to get 2 U1 batteries for your chair do not get Wally World or automotive batteries You must replace with sealed deep cycle batteries made for power chairs Hope this helps

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

Sorry but it sounds like weak batteries. I would replace both batteries and after installation fully charge before use. Then ask Mom to use the chair more each day so you can charge them overnight each day for the next 20 days. It will break in the batteries and get them operating at 100%. If you can get her to use it more and charge it overnite and always put it up at full charge the batteries should last 2-3 years Hope this helps

Yep It sure does Why didn't you charge the chair for 2 months? Charge at least once a week if you don't use it daily. Always break in the new batteries by using the chair daily for 10-15 days charging everynite then charge once a week if it sits for that long without use. Always put up fully charged. Do this and your batteries should last 3 -4 years Charge overnite if you use daily and never charge more than 24 hours Good Luck

It has been sitting for a year and I plugged it in for 3 hours now and went to use it and it doesn't turn on but the light on the battery is still green. what's wrong?


Your batteries are shot. If they haven't been charged for a year you won't charge them now or ever. Replace the batteries, charge before use and regularly as you use the chair. The new batteries need to be broke in and must receive use to get them to 100% Use your chair daily and charge daily for at least 20 days. Hope this helps

What are the cost od replacenebt batteries? The offf board has alreadtv been replaced under warrant it is only one year old AND USED VERY LITTLE IN THE HOUSE, IS IT A LEMON?


Did you purchase the chair or Medicare? This chair has small batteries that need tender loving care If you do not use it often you need to charge the chair at least once a week and always put it up fully charged. Once the batteries get weak then no chair charger will pick them up. Check with a local battery warehouse or similar supply store for 2 12/12 batteries. Hope this helps
