Answer by sandbarr
My elderly parents have both a power chair and a scooter.
A power chair is for in the house use. Basically an electric wheelchair.
A scooter is for more outside use, and can even be used on the sidewalk for short distances. It is not usually used in the house.
If you do a Google search, you can look up scooters and power chairs and learn more.

Is Your Mobility Scooters Battery Life Fading?

Is Your Mobility Scooters Battery Life Fading?

For some having a mobility product is a gift sent from God.  Not only does the mobility scooters allow easier access when shopping, they also allow the peice of mind that I don’t have to stay at home.  I can ride around the neighbor saying hello to the kids, make frequent trips to local stores, as well as visit the mailman at the mailbox without struggling to get there and back or waiting for my busy son or daughter to come over.  Most physically disabled people will agree that mobility scooters can be priceless.

When I researched the subject more in debt, I found out that the complaint is not the scooters; most are concerned about the battery life.  How would you like to know that when you go out for that daily ride or stroll to the park, that you may run out of battery?  Here you are stuck in the park or on the road with no communication with anyone, but strangers passing you by looking awkwardly at you wondering what your doing.  And to ask for help?  Maybe 1 in 5 people will even stop, but eventually you want that one person to help you.  However what will you ask them?  To take you home?  Or, “Would you please take my keys and go into my house and grab the battery charger?  And on the way out grab the extension cord…the really long one…?”  Well I think this is why they actually invented the cellphone right?  NOT!  You are stuck!  Stuck until you can get home to charge the battery.  I’m gonna give you a few tips to insure that your not stuck on the road looking for a stranger to help.

Make sure that when your mobility scooter arrives to your home that you immediately charge the battery for a minimum of 12 to 14 hours, basically overnight before you ever take your new mobility scooter out.
Purchase the necessary extra batteries when you order a mobility scooter.  This way you will always have a extra battery with you at all times that is charged to get you back home if your main battery dies.
Completely run your battery down to less than 10% before you re-charge. Try not to go out to the mailbox and then as soon as you get back plug it into the charger.  This will kill your battery life sooner.
When purchasing a mobility scooter you can always pay attention to the span of a fully charged battery by reading the specifications before purchase.  Click here for an example of the specifications of a Pride Go-Go Elite traveller 3 Wheel Mobility Scooter
Know the range of your scooter. Most manufacturers will list a range, top speed, and weight capacity.  All of these factors will come into play when deciding on a mobility scooter and the accessories.

Remember that if you own a mobility scooter or currently in search of purchasing one for a loved-one, please take my recommendation and get that extra battery; it’s worth it.  In addition learn more about mobility scooters, power wheelchairs and the accessories, because there are many other medical accessories for your mobility scooter that can assist you with any discomforts, malfunctions and/or issues of concern when traveling.  In fact, EasyMedOnline.com has a team of servicemen nationwide that can assist with any mechanical defects, purchase of extra batteries, and will service your mobility scooters nationwide.

Until next time, ride safe and get that extra battery; it’s to late if your already stranded to start thinking about getting one.
