Yvonne,

When you say that you put in a new battery, I hope you mean new batteries. This particular scooter takes 2 batteries and just changing one will leave the remaining one in poor condition. Make sure that you have replaced the batteries with the correct size and type. This scooter takes 2, 40 amp hour batteries. Sealed gel AGM batteries are preferred. The batteries should have the number 40 on them with a date code. You need new, fresh batteries to have them work properly. A date code tag of A1 indicates the A month(1st month) or January of 2011 (1 is for 2011). If you are not sure of the battery condition a local shop can load test them for you.
There is a possibility with a 5 year old scooter that a worn motor/brake will cause excessive current draw and drain your batteries. A qualified technician can determine this for you with a service call.
Hope this helps.

I would agree. AGM (absorbent glass mat) lead acid batteries
deteriorate with time, just sitting around. If they are being used
(charged/discharged0 that speeds up the batteries aging process
and at a certain point, the batteries may appear to take a charge
to their nominal voltage 12.6v x 2 = 25.2volts, but as soon as
you put a load on them, their capacity drops off rapidly.
Since both batteries age at the same rate, you must replace
both of them at the same time.
I replace my AGM 33ah batteries on my Pride XL scooter and my
wheelchairs about every 2 years to be safe and not run out
of battery capacity when I need it the most.

My Battery on my Shoprider Delux is fully charged but lasts only about 45mins is my Battery Knackered?


first of all , this is a common mistake , can you borrow another charger to make sure that is not causing the problem , you need to convince yourself that the charger is okay then lok at the batteries located under the cover located under the seat, make sure the batterys connectors are clean and tight, if all fails sadly it is a batteries replacement.

w beck you have to remove the seat by pulling it out of of the seat post and then remove the shroud or cover by pulling it straight up You will then be able to see the batteries. Your scooter equires two 12 volt batteries probably U1 batteries Hope this helps
