Mobility scooter battery life can vary quite drastically, but you can reasonably expect to get two year’s life out of them before they need replacing. With proper care, your mobility scooter batteries can last even longer than that. 

How often should I charge my mobility scooter?

When you first have new batteries, we recommend running them down to the red for the first 5 cycles, and fully (12 hour) recharging them everytimg. After that:

  • Regular /daily users – always charge after use.
  • Occasional users – charge your equipment before an outing and always after use (ideally when the ‘fuel gauge’ is no lower than50%).

Our top tips:

  • Never run your batteries completely flat, take care not to leave lights or any auxiliary equipment after use.
  • When storing your scooter for more than 6 weeks, it is advisable to fully charge the batteries and disconnect them. Check and recharge the batteries monthly.
  • Never switch off the charger before the charge complete indicator comes on.
  • Ensure you don’t overcharge your battery. Make sure they are not attached to the battery charger for more than a 24-hour period
  • Always use the charger supplied with the scooter.
  • Always unplug the charger from the equipment, as well as the mains, after charging. (Some chargers can drain batteries if left plugged in while switched of or unplugged from the mains).
