I would say that both the batteries are not holding a full charge ....I had one in the past for my mother and if it was not chraged on a regular basis the batteries would die out ....the cheapest and easiest route here is to try new batteries.

Mercury prism mobility scooter


The distance a scooter will go depends on the size and weight of the load also. If two people are different height ( wind drag ) and different weight or there is a difference in load you are carrying then there will be a difference in how long the charge will last. Since you switched the batteries with no change then this could be the case. There are other factors that can cause this as well , such as brake dragging, wheel bearings going out, low tire pressure if your tires are air, if 4 wheel scoters then wheel alignment. hope that helps.

Batteries are fully charged. Scooter goes at full speed for approx. 1 block, then will slow to 1/2 speed and back up to full then back to 1/2. We have new batteries, checked for voltage at end of run, one...


Based on your description you have a bad throttle potentiometer or speed potentiometer. Remove the covers of the front console and check the resistance throughout the range of both pots at the connector. It should be even throughout the range with no dead spots. The newer CTE throttle pot is more reliable than the older model Celebrity scooter with the 5K ohm potentiometer. I usually replace the throttle and speed pots as a pair since they are connected electrically in the console.
Load test the batteries while you are driving. Using your voltmeter that is still connected under the rear cover while you are driving, check to see if you get a voltage drop of more than 1 volt. Static testing of batteries only tells you that there is a full charge. It does not give you an indication of how the batteries perform under load.
If you have clean brushes, you can still have a large amount of conductive brush dust in the motor and armature. Blow out the dust with compressed air. Check the motor and brake with you meter. The motor coil resistance should be less than 1.5 ohms and the brake should read between 40 to 60 ohms. Hope this helps.

I think your batteries haven`t been charged properly,or they have been left standing so the charge has leaked out.At a minimum your batteries need to be charged for 12 hrs a day for the first month if not they will not build the capacity and will dwindle and die for example it is at only 25% capacity,but looks like a fullcharge, it says it fully charged but will die
quickly this happens because it is charged to its full capacity but that is only 25% of the batteries true potential
resulting in short battery life.
Unfortunately majority of scooter batteries like this have to be newly replaced.

Battery power on mobility scooter


Most scooters show a drop on the battery level meter when in use, as long as it is`nt slowing down it should`nt be a prob. I mean,when you engage the throttle you ARE putting a load on the batteries,so it`s only par for the course that the indicator would drop a bit.

Electric scooter Troubleshooting


A small tip here - bigger is better. The large diameter wheels clear gaps in concrete or pavement that would hang up a skate wheel or a scooter with smaller wheels. Most electric scooters also handle well in gravel and small terrain features. We don't recommend slamming electric scooters into a curb to get over it like some people do with their bike. This could result in damage to the electric scooter. Simply Ollie up a curb and keep going.
