Mobility Scooter Batteries Mobility Scooters
Your mobility scooter has particular requirements for its power and the batteries it uses are suited to this kind of appliance.
Gel and AGM batteries are often used in scooters as they carry certain advantages over ordinary lead acid ones, namely that they are considered to be safer. In addition, gel batteries have the more advanced technology.
However, sealed lead ones are also available.
When buying your scooter, find out what type of battery you need as this will make it easier to source them in the future.
Some mobility scooters will also need a charger.
If you use a compact mobility scooter, you will find that it uses lighter batteries than if you own a more standard one. Check that your battery is the right size as well as the correct voltage.
Try to keep your batteries somewhere dry and away from extremes of temperature.
You may wish to charge your scooter after every use, however short, since it would be inconvenient for the battery to run down in the middle of a journey!
