Well if the scooter wasn't charged regularly while it sat for 3 months then the batteries are probably weak and will need to be replaced. These smaller batteries will not tolerate not being charged regularly and unfortunately one or both batteries has gotten weaker and does not hold a charge like it should when new. Sorry i can't give you a better answer Remember to charge the new batteries before use and if you are not using the scooter regularly (daily) always put up fully charged and charge at least once a week. If you use it daily charge the scooter when you go to bed and unplug when you get up in the morning. If you do this you should get good use out of your batteries. Hope this helps

The charger light should normally be red if the battery is accepting a charge and green when the charger goes into trickle charge or off. SLA batteries do not last well if they are not regularly given a top up charge. I suspect the battery needs replacing.
If you have access to a voltmeter then you can test the battery voltage at the charger input port on the scooter.
There are lots of places that sell Razor E100 scooter parts and provide resources/information on replacing the battery.
Here are a few:

Good luck!

Scooter won't take a charge

scooter battries must be charged on a regular basis.or else the on board charger wont charge them .Try useing a trickle charger to bring them back to life. if you dont have access to one bring them to a local service station they should charge them for a small fee.

Hi. When you are looking for good quality batteries, they will have a 1 year warranty on them. If you get offered only a six month warranty, don't buy them. Good batteries weigh more than cheaper batteries, because they have more lead in them.
To get a good distance, you need to fit the biggest batteries that will physically fit in your machine.
Batteries are designed to handle a certain number of "charging cycles". If you run a battery down by approx 75%, you will only get a small number of "charging cycles". If you only use 25% of the batteries capacity, you will get 100's of charging cycles.
Gel batteries seem to be the better choice. Most AGM sealed batteries are designed to be stand-by batteries. They will work fine in your machine but only for light use. I have seen these batteries last for 7 years, but only for light use.
Good luck. Neil.

Golden gb 106 , one year old , used one week , sat for 9 months , batt will not charge, company says i have to buy new batterys because they ran down too low and can not be charged up again. is that true,...

Hi. What they are saying can happen. Batteries will not last if they are sitting around not being used. Did you have a warranty on the batteries and machine when you bought it. Most reputable companies will give a 12 month warranty on the batteries. The battery size you quote is a very small battery for a mobility scooter. How far do you intend to drive it? The life of a battery is determined by "charging cycles". If you continually run a battery flat each time you use it, you might only get a 100 or so uses out of it. But if you only use 25 % of a batteries capacity, you should get many 100's of trips out of the batteries.
With the size of battery you have, it will be very hard not to flatten the batteries all the time.
This sized machine is probably intended for inside use only. Good luck. Neil.

I have a old pride victory 3 scooter working well what is the minimum charging time /how much for a replacement battery/s and how long do they last thanks

It is best to let it charge at least over night, longer if it hasn't been used for a while. It is also good to give them a long workout (Don't completely flatten them though) at least occaisionally. If they get regular and thorough use they will last longer, but extra weight like shopping, or lots of steepish paths will flatten them a lot faster. They are only supposed to last a couple of years, but will go longer if you look after them.

One of the most important things is to find a supplier/repairman you can trust. These are, after all your legs or mode of transport you are talking about.

Spare Batteries for Pride Revo Scooter

You can't do it with a car battery charger as it takes a 24 volt charger and it has to be designed to charge the sealed batteries that go in scooters and power chairs or you will blow the batteries up!

Order another battery case and swap the battery packs on the scooter with the spare pack once a week. Sealed batteries do not store well and need to be charged fully at least once a month to ensure long life. These batteries aren't cheap, and it's worth keeping them in shape.

This isn't something to get overly concerned with. Most likely it's just the battery, and not a problem with the machine. Batteries are funny. I own a small computer shop, and we specialize in laptops, so I've seen many batteries (with laptop attached) come through. The thing about batteries is that, although they may be the exact same make and model, they will have different characteristics, and no two batteries will be the same. I've had batteries that held a great charge, and would hold a charge for 3 to 4 hours, but only had a life of about 8 months before replacement. Then I've had batteries that will only hold a charge for approx 45 minutes, but lasted 2 or 3 years before replacement. I'm going to say that you just have a weak battery, and suggest that you purchase another to use on a regular basis, and keep this one for a back up (or vice versa). I think it's always a good idea to keep a back up battery.
