Batteries die fast on my mobility scooter.

I have two 12 volt - 17 AH batteries now. I want to buy two 12 volt - 50AH batteries or even two 12 volt 98 AH batteries for my mobility scooter . would this work O.K. ? i'm new at these batteries and i mean i 'm not sure . also could i instead buy 4 12 volt - 17 AH and wire them up in parallel and series and double my distance?
thanks so much for your time, John.

Hi. What size batteries you buy will be limited to the amount of room you have in the machine.
17 amp hour batteries are really a bit small for any mobility equipement. A lot of power chairs have 35 or 40 amp/hour batteries.
Buy the biggest that will fit into the available space.
Batteries are designed to perform a certain number of "charge cycles". If you run your batteries down by 75%, you will only get a small number of "charge cycles". If you only use 25% of the batteries capacity, you will get 100's of "charge cycles".
The best I have seen is 7 years out of a set of batteries. Short trips and recharging after each trip is the reason.
Good luck. Neil.

How do I charge my sonic scooter

Your Sonic Scooter battery is a 12V battery. It may be anywhere from a 5 AH to 12 AH battery, but all are still 12 Volts. You can use just about any 12 V charger, or Trickle charger to charge it. (The lower the Ampere Hours, the less time it will run before needing to be charged again.)

Can i use a 12v 50ah car battery on my mobility scooter?

, hi ,well you will need two of them for a start( 24v) , GEL batteries can supply much more amp than a car battery for a longer given time, where a car battery will start to drop off voltage wise a good GEL will hold up the voltage for longer, this is the important part most mobility scooter controller will start to cut out around 18 volts or less.

Trying to open the battery and just can't get it open. Can you tell me how many screws or where they are please? We're trying to figure out what size battery we need, got two different answers. Ordered...

The battery box for this scooter is easily taken apart to replace the batteries. Remove the battery box form the scooter and turn it upside down. There are 8 screws which hold the 2 halves of the battery box together. The screws require a long shaft Phillips #1 screwdriver to remove because they are at the bottom off long plastic round recesses in the battery box. Don't forget the 8 lock washers under the screw heads.
This scooter takes 2 batteries rated at 12 AH. The best type are AGM batteries (advanced glass mat). When you have the battery box apart, turn it right side up and pry the batteries off the velcro. Note which terminals are connected to red (+) and black (-) on each battery, The batteries and the terminals will be marked. Re-use the velcro by putting it on the new batteries to keep them secure in the box. Connect the four fast tab terminals to the batteries and push down on the batteries to get them to stick to the velcro. Turn the box over and install 8 screws making sure a lock-washer is under the screw head. Using your long screwdriver tighten securely. Plug in and test scooter and charging of the new batteries. Hope this helps.

8 screws 12 or 17 amp AGM

Replacing the battery on a mobility scooter

hi, ok remove the seat by turning it to the left, there is a lever normally on the right side that will allow it be turned round,

once you done that, lift the seat in a upwards motion, the cover should come away by gemerally lifting it, it should be attached by velco underneath,

you should now see two batteries. 40Ah batteries will allow you to go further if the battery Ah is lower, 50ah batteries again will allow you can go even further NOT faster, if you buy the larger AH batteries please make sure the dimensions of the batteries will fit within the scooter battery holders.
