I had a similar problem. When scooter purchased, gave it the full 8 hr charge. Was great. Husband did not bring batteries n that winter from unheated building. If left in cold a trickle charger needs to be on it. Easier to take out and bring in.

Same thing happened. Would charge and said fully charged but one battery(has 2) had a dead cell from being out in the cold. Took to batteries plus(very reasonable) had it checked and purchased.new one. Put in and gave it a full charge. Wonderful ever since. Use it at horse shows to run from trailer to stalls to arena and all over. Constantly forget to turn switch off and still comes through for me. It appears to go into a sleep mode when you forget to switch off. When back to trailer to sleep plug it in. The first 2 days of a 7 day circuit didn't plug in but then started to whenever I took it back to trailer as the strip sign says on platform. Duh!! Love it, love it love it!!!

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


Lead acid or deep cycle gel batteries are best kept on trickle charge.

Take care of your batteries
How do I get the most life out of my new batteries?
To maximise the life of your batteries, it is best to complete a full charge for the first 1015 times that you use your scooter. This simply means however far you travel, do not just top-up for a short while, but complete the full charge cycle every time. Your batteries will not work at their best until this process has been carried out and will prolong power and performance. You will find the distance your scooter can travel will gradually increase over its first few weeks as your batteries reach optimum efficiency.
When is it best to charge my batteries?
After 10-15 cycles have been completed, a normal charging routine can be adopted
  • Depending on the capacity of the batteries, the charge time can vary up to a maximum of 16 hours
  • The charger will automatically shut down when the batteries are fully charged, so you do not have to worry about switching it off. This is ideal for overnight charging.
  • Whenever possible try to avoid interrupting a charge cycle. It is always best to complete a full charge cycle as excessive short term charging is detrimental to battery life.
  • For the very best results and to maximise battery life, charge fully before and after use.
  • Please refer to charger indicator lights for battery status.

How do I store and maintain my batteries?
  • If your scooter will not be used for a while or is being stored, make sure the batteries are fully charged first.
  • If your scooter is not being used, make sure the batteries receive a refresher charge every 14 weeks. Alternatively if you are planning not to use your scooter for over 6 weeks, fully charge your batteries and then disconnect.
  • Fully charge the batteries before re-use.
  • Never leave the batteries in a discharged state.
  • Avoid damp, hot or cold extremes when storing your scooter.
  • Batteries are totally sealed and do not require any maintenance apart from charging.

Charging
1.Switch off your scooter and remove key.
2.Plug charger into scooter charge socket.
3.Push charger plug into wall socket and switch socket on.
4.There will be a light sequence on the charger but as all chargers are different, refer to charger instructions.
5.Most scooters will have an inhibit mode which will shut down all the scooters electrics while the charger is plugged in.
6.Only use the charger supplied with your scooter.
7.Do not smoke or use a ***** flame while batteries are being charged.
8.Do not leave charger plugged into your scooter when the charger is switched off as this may discharge your batteries.
9.For a complete charge do not switch off, unplug or interrupt the charge cycle until it is complete.
It is worth considering that in extreme cold weather the time your batteries take to charge can increase by up to 20%. The range of your scooter will also vary based on weather conditions. Also when your batteries reach the end of their useful life, you will find that charging time will become much shorter. The amount of charge the batteries can hold will become less and less as will your scooter range until ultimately they become unusable.

Charging your power chair or scooter the correct way can make them last


Whenever you need to charge your power chair or scooter get into the habit of charging overnight. The battery level indicator lights will tell you if your chair or scooter needs charging. Whenever the lights are down into the yellow and especially if they are in the red. If you have the off-board charger, plug the charger into the charger port in the front of your joystick and then plug the charger into the wall socket or turn the on/off switch on and let it charge overnight. When you get up in the morning the charger should have a red light(power) and a green light illuminated (indicating fully charged) Always turn the charger off or unplug it from the wall socket before you unplug it from the chair or scooter. Never have the power on to the charger when you plug or unplug it from your chair or scooter. Whenever you get new batteries always give your batteries a full charge before use and then if you use the chair daily charge it every night. If you do not use your chair or scooter daily charge it at least once a week. Never leave the charger plugged in and on for more than 24 hours. Your batteries should last you 3-4 years if you charge them correctly.

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.

Gogo elitescooter lights indicate battery fully charged but scooter will not go


Make sure the free-wheel lever is engaged and the charger is unplugged from the scooter before you try to turn the scooter on. If the battery gauge goes up when you turn the scooter on and there are no beeping sounds you should be good to go.If the battery gauge drops to the red when you try to accelerate slowly, your batteries are shot. (Typical replacement in 24-48 months).If there is any beeping when the key is first turned on then there is a problem and the number of beeps indicates the problem found by the computer during the POST.

HI Scooter is on charge full time and used daily after 30min i loose the first green light that is OK but if i dont use it for one or two days i loose the first green light only after 10min can you...


well it could be that you overcharged the batteries. You should not leave the scooter on the charger full time. you should charge the scooter nightly while you sleep unplug from the charger when you get up in the morning. the charger should not be on the scooter more than 12 hours per day and that rare. Whenever you have a red and green light on the charger the scooter is fully charged and can be unplugged. Always put it up fully charged and then charge after each use. Your batteries need to be replaced and charge the new ones before use then charge overnight each day that you use the scooter. If you don't use it for a few days you should still be fully charged than charge after use Hope this helps

I need to know how to charge the batterie om my sisters merits wheelchair,i do not know how to plug it up,,or if the charger is located on the frame someplace or if its freestanding.plain and simple i do...


sking the off board charger is a 5 inch by 3 inch rectangular box with a power plug on one end and a round silver 3 prong plug on the other. The charger plugs into the charger port located under the front of the joystick. Plug the charger plug into the joystick and then into the wall socket. When it is fully charged the light on the chrager will turn from yellow to green. Unplug the power from the wall socket first then unplug from the joystick In ither words always have the charger unplugged when you plug the charger up to the chair Now if the chair has an onboard charger there should be a power cord that just plugs into the chair usually somewhere in the rear of the chair all you have to do is plug it into a wall socket and charge away Hope this helps you

Hi do you need to turn on key to charge up battery on a wheeltech mobility scooter i just purchased with no manual thanks


No, you don't need to turn on the key to charge. Just plug in the charger and turn on the charger if there is an on/off switch on it. The charger indicator and the scooter meter will read full when the scooter is fully charged. Hope this helps.
