Some low end electric scooter provide 200-400 full charge-discharge cycles for a battery. Many scooter batteries will operate over 500 times.

What type of batteries does this model take?.jb.

you need 12v 33ah sealed deep cycle battery most likely it may need two batteries any thing above 33 amp hours would also be ok. A higher Ah the longer the batteries last. This information on the type of battery is from the user manual.
Any battery type store should be able to supply this to you .

My scooter will not fully charge

This could be the charger socket is worn and not making a good connection when charging or it could be the charger itself at fault. Now you have changed the batteries, I presume new and both the same type, you need to look at the charging side.

My meditech mobility scooter will not alway stop when i let go of the lever


It sounds like you have a bad throttle potentiometer or worn/bad brake. You could also have weak batteries. Let me address each of these in turn.
The most likely problem is that the throttle potentiometer spring or the potentiometer is worn out. The pot is not going to a neutral position when you release it. The electrical neutral is in the center of the pot throw, not forward, not reverse. If the spring is deformed, weak or worn the pot will not come back to center. The controller electrically senses that the brakes do not need to be applied after a period of regenerative braking (lag time to slow the motor down before the brakes are applied). The electrical slider inside the potentiometer may be worn from continuous use and not making good electrical contact, thus the electrical signal to the controller is reduced. Using a digital voltmeter you can check for electrical dead spots throughout the typical 5K ohm range in forward and reverse. Center should be 0 ohms with +5K to -5K ohms to common read from the outer terminals.
A bad electromechanical brake which works like a solenoid could be your problem. When the controller sends power to work the brake the solenoid needs to grab the brake disc. There could be too much brake dust or the disc may be worn out or slipping. The solenoid coil may be open or shorted, With a digital voltmeter the resistance should be between 40 to 60 ohms.
With the two preceding solutions comes a disclaimer. If the batteries are old or weak, the electronics and performance including braking will be weak or poor. Make sure you have fully charged batteries that load test good. It takes a good set of batteries to make the motor turn and to make the motor stop.
A good tech will charge less than an hour labor for the above service. I usually replace the throttle potentiometer and speed potentiometer as a pair since they are electrically connected in series.
Hope this helps.

Charging problem and also it never stands for a long time , new charger is again given from the company but no use , pls help

If you have recieved a new charger, are charging the batteries for 8-10 hours and the scooter has not been stored for a while, the batteries may need to be replaced. Do you have any flashing lights on the controller? Is there any noise or vibration when you operate the scooter that might cause fast battery drain? Batteries usually last 1-2 years with proper self maintenance; if your batteries are older than this they may just be worn out and need to be replaced.

Scooter runs then stops I turn offf the key and then it runs again and then will stop again also the scooter seems to have lost speed over time

the batteries are worn and problably need replaced , the computer will stop running the scooter at threshold voltage, older batteries and will hit this threshold voltage and slow the scooter

Hi John.
The problem could be a worn throttle pot ( wig wag ). Next time you are driving the scooter, try moving the ends of the speed lever slowly up and down, instead of in or out as you normally use it. If the throttle pot is worn, moving the lever this way will make the machine speed up or slow down.
Another cause might be a faulty battery lead connector or a faulty motor connector.
Good luck. Neil.

I have a 4 wheeled shoprider sunrunner scooter. Only 3 lights on led light up batteries are fully charged?

Possible one or both batteries have had there day. How old are the batteries. If they are between 1 and 2 years old they will probably need replacing. it would be adviseable to get the batteries tested and have the charger checked as well. When did it have its last service ?

Hi it keeps stopping,leave it 5 mins and it will go again for a short while.

sounds like the brushes could be worn out,

Connection form the batteries to the motor controller then check the M+ M- leads from the controller to the motor

Could be the controller breaking down

Batteries are okay ? or simply the speed pot is worn,

when it stops , move the throttle lever upwards, does it start to go again, if so a new speed pot is required.

New 55ah batteries but charge won't last.

Battery life is affected by many things. But inside a tiled space like Walmart is probably the best possible running conditions. Make sure your tires are fully inflated, and you may need to have the motors check for worn brushes or maybe the wheel bearings are dry. Does the scooter push hard when in free-wheel mode? You may also need to have your charger checked, to be sure your batteries are really being fully charged.
