Battery Information for Scooter Smart® Scooters


There is some important information you should know about how an electric mobility scooter battery works and the care that should be taken regarding battery life. Most mobility scooter batteries begin to lose permanent charge as soon as they are manufactured and their life span depends considerably the care and maintenance they receive. All electric scooter batteries have a ‘design life’. This duration can vary however the rule of thumb is about 3 years. This design life can vary between the different battery types manufactured. The electric mobility scooter batteries age and usage are key factors determining its lifespan. Do you use your scooter frequently?  Do you use your scooter in hilly terrain? Do you travel long distances at a time without recharging your mobility scooter battery? These types of activities can impact on your batteries life.

To ensure the best performance and to maximise your Scooter Smart® mobility scooter battery life, it is recommended that you frequently charge your battery. Your electric scooter comes with an external mobility scooter battery charger for your ease and convenience. The battery meter makes charging simple and easy. Do not allow the batteries to completely discharge as this may cause damage to the batteries and/or the scooters electrical programmer. It is recommended that your batteries be charged every 2 weeks at a minimum even if you are not using your mobility scooter.

Many electric mobility scooters run on 24 volts (2 x 12 volt batteries) and generally use Sealed Lead Acid (SLA) batteries wired in series. The benefit is that these batteries are fairly economically priced and that they are generally very easy to obtain through your local battery store or mobility scooter supplier. The downside is that the weight/energy density (power-to-weight) ratio is reasonably low. This means they are heavy and not as durable as some of the high-performance batteries around. The best way to ensure maximum life-span of an SLA battery is to consume less than 3 Volts before recharging. So keep your scooter charged!  This is most important throughout those winter months where you may throw your mobility scooter dust cover over your device and forget about it until Spring. You may dust off your mobility scooter to find that your batteries are completely discharged and could need replacing.

Not all ‘high performance batteries’ are suitable for electric vehicles; however these batteries come with a healthy price tag. The rule of thumb… the lighter they are in terms of energy density, the higher the price. In the end, they are well worth their money, especially for the frequent user.
