Mobility Scooter Battery Chargers
Mobility scooter battery chargers come in all shapes and sizes. But most battery chargers are unique, and only fit a specific model.
They come in a range of sizes which can become very confusing. Some plug into the wall, some use car charger ports. Some have digital displays, some don’t. It is all very overwhelming, especially when something so important is playing up!
There may sometimes be occasions where your mobility scooter battery appears to be broken.
But more than often, this is down to an inefficient or faulty charger and not your scooter.
Below are the two tell tale signs that your charger or battery may need replacing. If you show either of these signs, please read our guide to testing your mobility scooter battery. If that doesn’t work, please contact us to discuss the best way to fix your problem and get you moving again.
My charger is no longer detecting the batteries it is connected to
This can be very disconcerting, especially when you have a busy day planned. There are lots of reasons that this can happen. Perhaps your batteries are in need of being replaced? Or it could be that your charger is faulty.
We recommend testing your existing charger, or trying another charger before you replace your perfectly functioning battery.
My mobility scooter doesn’t go as far as it used to
If you find that your scooter is not able to travel the distances it used to, then this could be due to a problem with your battery. However, it may well be your charger that is the culprit. It may not be charging the scooter to its full charge state, meaning that it is leaving you short when it comes to longer journeys.
How to test your mobility scooter battery charger
Firstly, you will need to identify the travel range of your scooter which is normally found in the specification sheet in the box. Once you have that, take the scooter for a ride. What you need to do next is simply ride your mobility scooter and keep track of the travel distance.
Once you have drained the scooter of all power, charge the batteries again overnight and repeat the process. If you get a similar distance out of your batteries, then your charger is working to its best capacity. If you get a significantly less mileage from the day before, you may need to replace the charger, but make sure that the specification is exactly the same as your previous charger.
