11th July 2017 Need to replace your Mobility Scooter Batteries?
Deciding which batteries for mobility scooters you want can seem a bit complicated at first glance. However, there is no need to worry because we have written a breakdown of available types of scooter batteries for you and answered some of the most commonly asked questions about them. This will help you to select the correct one for your particular machine.
Q: Do I need to change my mobility scooter battery often?
The answer here will really depend on how frequently you use your scooter, but if you tend to run your scooter a lot during the day then you will need to recharge the battery overnight. There is absolutely no need to run the battery flat before you recharge it. Doing this will not negatively affect your battery or affect its performance. However, do pay attention to any safety instructions that come with your scooter. Some makes of scooter will recommend that you don't charge the battery if there is more than 80% of the power left. Many will advise not to leave the batteries charging for more than 12 hours at a time.
Q: How often should I replace my scooter battery?
On average most scooter batteries will need replacing after about 18 months to two years, or sooner if you feel your batter has started fading quickly, even after a full recharge. You should notice a reduction in your battery life if you use your scooter regularly and don't reach distances that you once did.
Q: Can you buy batteries for mobility scooters that are made for longer distances?
This will depend on what model mobility scooter you have. Some models will allow a larger high-capacity battery that will carry you further, but you need to consider that these will cost more and are much heavier than standard scooter batteries.
Q: What sort of batteries do mobility scooters take?
Mobility scooter batteries operate on a 24v system made up of two 12v batteries. These are charged together at the same time on the scooter. There are two main types of batteries used: GEL batteries (a VRLA battery with a gelified electrolyte) and Sealed Lead Acid (SLA) batteries. The longer lasting choice are the GEL batteries that produce more cycles than SLA batteries. GEL batteries do not need to be kept upright, so this is a consideration for storage and transportation of spare batteries. An easier option as these are maintenance free, non-spillable and great for everyday mobility scooter use. Prices range from around £40 to £100 inclusive of VAT and fitting. SLA batteries are more affordable than GEL batteries, starting at around £15 upwards. Also maintenance free, these batteries are recommended for light or occasional scooter use. If you only use your scooter to get to the local shops and back, then this is the cheaper option.

11th July 2017 Finding the right mobility scooter to meet your needs
We are currently facing our greatest healthcare crisis, trying to address the dual pronged problems of an aging population and a growing obesity epidemic. Both problems are exacerbated by mental health issues surrounding loneliness and isolation. One of the best ways to address this is to ensure those with disabilities, chronic obesity and those aging and lonely members of society are still able to get out of their house, live in the community and meet and maintain friendships.
One of the most successful and safest methods to do this is with the use of the mobility scooter. Commercially, they have only become frequent on the high street in the last 20 years, as rapid development of technology, particularly electric power and batteries for mobility scooters has developed to a practical useful level.
There is a mind boggling selection of mobility scooters available and each scooter can be sold on one of the following attributes, even though its specification might cover more than one.
11th July 2017 What to consider before buying your Mobility Scooter
It is important when buying a mobility scooter that you consider weight limits and how comfortable it is before making your purchase. The most important things to look out for when making your decision is how comfortable and easy to operate the scooter is. However there are also some other aspects to consider including:
Different mobility scooters will have varied weight limits, which is something you need to check before buying your mobility scooter. Some models available are only able to hold up to 110 kg, while others are capable of holding a maximum of 225 kg. If you’re planning on using your mobility scooter when you’re out shopping, you must also consider the added weight of shopping bags or other items when making your final decision.
We offer two main types of batteries:
Mobility scooters may have a varying number of wheels depending on the particular one you are looking at. These include three, four and five wheeled scooters suitable for different uses. If you’re planning on spending most of your time indoors on your scooter then a three wheeled option may be ideal for you as it is extremely easy to manoeuvre and it is usually best kept at a lower speed.
If you want to use your mobility scooter out and about then a traditional four wheeled option would be the right option for you. Due to the four wheels, these scooters are much more stable and able to withstand travelling on uneven ground without the risk of tipping. Although they are typically harder to manoeuvre, this is generally not an issue when outside in open spaces.
