Is it best to keep my scooter on charge all the time or what


Keep your scooter on charge doesn't sound right. Usually, eScooters take 3-4 hours for charging and many chargers have a red while charging. These chargers turn the green light on when they completed the charging. Here, you can also read more tips about the take care of your e-scooter or e-bike https://www.insurance4ebikes.co.uk/looking-after-your-e-bike/. However, according to auto experts battery should be full all the time.

Batteries go flat if left in camera


your title says camera ? but your post is in pride mobility ? but this will apply for any rechargeable batteries. the batteries could be at the end of there life ( they only charge so many times ) but cold and other things can drain them. heres a fix to try and get the full charge to stay full. you might have to do it a few times. charge batteries over night untill fully charged,prop the scooter up and jam the throttle on and just let it run flat ( anything else with full charge do the same.power on and let them run flat ) once there flat recharge again but drain the battery so it wont even light the lights.try it to see if the next charge holds ? if not try the same thing again. this is called calibrating..you might find after the first try it will hold half of its charge but will get better the more time you calibrate it. if that dose not work you will need new batteries. also try leaving them out of the item not in use to see if they drain on there own,this could give you a clue as to something being left on when there inside ? hope this helps

Why does my 150 cc SUNL scooter not hold a charge? New battery is no different than original. It is a 2008 with 26 miles on it


Doesn´t matter the miles runned.
The battery is too old. chemicals inside are not capable to hold Current(Amperes).
Yo must change the Battery by a New one with the same parameters. (Volts,Amps, Size.)
2008 from now it´s too much time for a Battery, even unused.

My husbands Daytona 4 just started having this charging problem


I'm afraid your batteries have expired. They will show full voltage but the Amps are not being replenished.

Just bought one of these and it seems like it doesn't hold a charge it goes pretty good and thanafter 15 mins so slow??


Battery powered vehicles like scooters and golf carts have trouble going up hill because smaller electric engines aren't powerful enough or made for nothing more than flat land. You could have a bad battery or the battery isn't being charged enough. I know someone that has a golfcart and it takes approximately 48 hours to charge full. You may want to check the manual about charging times.

The scooter charges and shows full charge when started. Scooter will not drive uphill - certainly seems to lack torque - when driving up hill battery indicator drops to red


Either the hill is too steep of a grade/incline, the weight of the rider is more than the scooter is designed to carry, or the battery does not have enough power. If the batteries are old or have not been maintained properly, they may not be getting a deep solid charge that is needed to operate on hilly terrain. This is indicated when the batteries show a full charge, and then drop off quickly after a short period of use. Make sure that you are not exceeding the recommended weight limit for the scooter and that your batteries are less than 2 years old. Inclines of more than 5-6 degrees are typically not recommended for safe operation.
I hope this information is helpful to you, good luck!

My electric mobility scooter is froze up the needle showing battery charge goes over to zero but it will not move the temp is -8


There is a gel inside the batteries that may be frozen or too thick from the cold to allow the power to flow properly. Bring the scooter inside and allow it to gradually warm up to see if that will allow the current to flow from the batteries. Do not attach the charger until the batteries have thawed a bit as this may cause damage to the cells. If the controller warms up too fast, condensation may build up inside it which can damage the electronics. Slow and steady wins the race.
Good luck!

Charging


i would say it all depends on how many AH your battery is and what amp your charger is they differ between 8 to 14 hours that is for new batteries as a battery gets older the less time it takes to charge so if your batteries are getting fully charged in 2 hours its time to start thinking of changing them
good luck and hope this helps
