I purchased a Pronto 41 wheelchair and a Winsunny battery charger. The charger didn't have a manual so I'm wondering what the best procedure is for recharging the batteries. Do I need to turn the...

Joe See my tips on charging batteries No you don't have to leave the chair on when charging. Charge overnite after using it during the day. Always have the charger off when plugging it into the chair and unplugging from the chair. The charger you have doesn't have an on/off switch so get a power strip with the on/off switch, plug that into the wall and plug your charger into the strip use the switch on the strip to turn the charger on and off this will save you having to plug and unplug the charger rom the wall. Always store or put the chair up fully charged. If you don't use the cair daily charge at least once a week. It takes 9-10 chargings to get the batteries operating at 100% so use the chair and charge overnight while you sleep Never leave the charger on the chair more than 12 hours Hope this helps you

Charging your power chair or scooter the correct way can make them last

Whenever you need to charge your power chair or scooter get into the habit of charging overnight. The battery level indicator lights will tell you if your chair or scooter needs charging. Whenever the lights are down into the yellow and especially if they are in the red. If you have the off-board charger, plug the charger into the charger port in the front of your joystick and then plug the charger into the wall socket or turn the on/off switch on and let it charge overnight. When you get up in the morning the charger should have a red light(power) and a green light illuminated (indicating fully charged) Always turn the charger off or unplug it from the wall socket before you unplug it from the chair or scooter. Never have the power on to the charger when you plug or unplug it from your chair or scooter. Whenever you get new batteries always give your batteries a full charge before use and then if you use the chair daily charge it every night. If you do not use your chair or scooter daily charge it at least once a week. Never leave the charger plugged in and on for more than 24 hours. Your batteries should last you 3-4 years if you charge them correctly.

I need 24 volt interstate batteries for my jazzy power chair. How much are 2 of them?

Well you don't need a 24 volt battery you will need 2 12 volt batteries for a total of 24 volts Contact any local Battery distributor or Interstate battery dealer. You will need 2 U1 sealed AGM or Gel cell batteries and the cost will be $175.00 to $218.00 for 2 batteries. After installing the new batteries be sure to charge before use and then charge every nite for the next 20 days. If you use the chair daily charge overnite If you don't use it daily always store fully charged and charge at least once a week Hope this helps you

I had not used the chair in 2 months, when i charged the battery in my electric wheelchair, the lights near the top of the joy stick shows its fully charge, but when i unplug the cord, it go's...

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

I need an owners manual. I have had the hoveround charging for approximately 36 hours, it seems to turn on but does not move.

PK 36 hours charging is too long you will damage the chair and the batteries. You shouldn't have to charge more than 12 hours and never more than 24. If the batteries are weak the chair might power up but you don't have the power to energize the motors. If you have a digital voltmeter set it to 200 volts dc and plug the leads into the two outter holes of the charger port located on the joystick. You should be reading 25-27 volts with the batteries fully charged. Anything less than 20 volts will not be enough to power the chair. Hope this helps you

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

Am having trouble charging my new power weelchair,I charged it for 24 hours and its still not turning on,I have a jazzy power weelchair program#DWR1111H035

Well the problem is that the batteries are not connected correctly or the joystick is disconnected or something isn't right with the power supply(batteries). You should never charge the chair more than 18 hours. If it doesn't charge after that many hours there is a problem that continuous charging won't help. Since it is a new chair I would contact your provider where you bought the chair and have them come out to repair it. It is under warranty and its their responsibility to fix it I wouldn't let them get by with offering some lame excuse as to they're not able to fix. If all else fails contact Pride Mobility @ 1-800-800-8586 and tell them of your problem and demand repair.

What is the proper way to charge the Pronto M51

Eduardo After using your chair and the battery level lights are down with yellow or red lights showing just plug the chair into the wall socket and let er rip. Now really after using your chair during the day and you are ready for bed just plug in the charger and let it charge over night. In the morning unplug the charger and you should be set for the day. If you don't use the chair everyday always put it up with a full charge and about once a week plug it in and let it charge overnight. Never leave the chair plugged in all the time and never leave it for more that 24 hours. The charger has two lights on it one red and one yellow or green that are hard to see because they are under the rear cover. When the chair is fully charged the yellow light turns green and you can unplug the charger and you should have a full charge. Hope this helps you

New battries won't charge.

Sounds like the batteries are completely dead, you'll probably need to replace them, sometimes you can only use batteries until they die, and that goes for Wheelchair Batteries too. If they won't charge or keep a charge then they are dead.
