Question about Jet 3 Ultra Power Chair
My jet 3 battery charge gets weak so fast even its full charge, i test my battery because i thought it was just a battery but was perfect. it has still 12 v. my neighbor who has the same problem with the same brand and model, he bought a new battery but it didnt help..
Hi. This could be caused by a few different faults. Some batteries when old, can have a good voltage reading but are unable to supply the amps to drive the machine. Connect a volt-meter to the machine and try and drive it. If the voltage drops right down, then the batteries will be at fault.
Could also be loose battery terminals, or faulty battery lead in-line connectors.
If you suspect your batteries get a serviceman to do a constant current test, and see how the batteries perform.
I had a customer that had been through 6 sets of batteries in 4 years. When he finally asked us for help, we found that his charger was faulty, and overcharging his batteries.
Get a serviceman to record your charger over a complete charging cycle with a data logger, and make sure that your charger is operating corectly.
Do you make long trips in your machine, and how often do you recharge the batteries.
Most batteries are designed with a certain number of "charge cycles". If you drain your batteries by 75%, you will only get a small number of "charge cycles". If you only drain your batteries by 25%, you will get 100's of charge cycles.
Good luck. Neil.
