Like everything else in life, then it is only a matter of time. When your mobility scooter batteries will begin to wear out. In the first place your new batteries will handle your daily trips with no sign of any problems.
Unfortunately though, after about two years, the old mobility scooter batteries will start to play up. As expected, they will not last you forever. Mobility batteries have to work very hard. They are 245-batteries,deep cycle batteries and so after many chargers. All of a sudden your batteries will start to play up. Especially, when you go up a hill.
Suddenly, you will be getting a flashing warning sign. Of course, from your “low power light”. Most common though is that your scooter starts struggling to get you home. At first this can be intermittent. Because it all depends on the pressure you put on the 245-batteries . For example if you use it on the flat or on hills.
As expected, your mobility scooter could appear to run normally on the flat.
But as soon as you hit a hill it could struggle. Unfortunately for the driver,a sign that your batteries are on the way out.
The batteries that are used in the demonstration, are a classic top terminal range of AGM batteries. The brand that we recommend are Lucas AGM batteries and Firstpower batteries. They were designed as a good cost effective reliable solution for mobility scooters and many other uses.
The batteries are fitted with lead calcium plates giving them a triple benefit. For this reason, these AGM batteries provide a competitive battery solution. The Lucas product is reliable, due to their gas recombination technology. Hence these batteries are sealed and can be fitted in any position, making the batteries very versatile and maintenance free.
