MStrong The charger will not charge batteries that are reading that low Replace the batteries and try the charger again. Remember to always charge before use and never charge longer than 12-16 hours. Get into the habit of charging overnite on scooters used everyday and once a week on seldomly used scooters always sore the scooter fully charged and if storing for a longer time remove the batteries and store fully charged. ope this helps you

Charging problem the red light and green light or both on when charging and the batteries don't seem to be charging


sounds like the batteries are dud, most chargers have 2 or 3 lights, red (max charging) Amber (battery nearing full charge) Green (fully charged and most will switch to a trickle charge) has the scooter been out of use for some time as scooter / wheelchair batteries must be kept charged, and only a short time of no use can destroy the batteries.

This sounds like the battery's have gone bad. You will need to check with a local dealer to find replacement battery's. If you can access the battery's to remove them they can be tested at any local auto parts store.

The red light is always on, and it doesn't seem to be charging. Its almost brand new.


Same thing started happening to me. The red charging light was initially going out but then after a few days use started staying on. I assumed that the battery was damaged and bought 3 new batteries but the red light is still staying on when I charge the new batteries.

I suspect that the mains charger I was using (same voltage but not the recommended charger) has perhaps damaged a component inside the EFLC1003 unit which is now not letting the power through to charge the battery.

How long does it take to fully charge Golden Companion II bATTERIES?


Hi. Charging batteries is dependent on how far you travelled, the size of the battery, and the type of charger you have.
The best rule is to charge the batteries overnight after each use.
If your charger has an LED to show when the batteries are nearly full.
This LED is a guide only, and most batteries still need a few more hours of charging after the LED turns green.
Charging batteries is not like filling up a jug of water. Its a chemical reaction in a battery, and it takes time to charge them fully.
Good luck. Neil.

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.

Battery #1 terminal lights red and stays red.


Disconnect the - lead from that battery, Repower the charger. The LED should be green. If it stays RED, charger defective.
Reconnect the - lead to the battery, measure voltage when charger is on. Should be between 11.5 and 13 volts. If OK, replace the battery. If lower than 11.5, check for charger cable connections OR for a connected load ( power drawing ) of more than 10 amps.

Upon power up, 3 red LEDs flashing rapidly continously, no power.


The control systems on power mobility equipment have a "prevent" circuit that immobilizes the equipment while it is plugged into a charger, so folks won't take off with it plugged into the wall outlet. When you turn it on when plugged into a charger, the display will flash constantly, or sweep constantly, depending on the manufacturer. This is normal. Your off-board charger should have a red light to indicate power to the charger, and another light for the charge status. Yellowish means it is charging, when it turns green, you are fully charged. If the status light is green all the time, that is an indication that the charger is not functioning properly, or that the batteries are below a chargeable state. Check charger output, which should be 26-28 volts dc, and each battery should show at least a 12 volt reading, but around 13.5 volts with a full charge. If one or both of the batteries drops below 12 volts after a short period of time, it's time for a fresh pair. Fully charge new ones before using the chair.

Camera will not charge the battery


Well. Ive got the same problem only ive gone thru 3 batteries trying to figure out what the problem is. When i plug it in to charge the light turns red , then within 5 sec's turns green. It stays green but never charges the battery. After 24 hours, its still a dead battery. Im just assuming since its 5 years old that the internal charger is shot. Looking for a new camera at this time.
