  1. power add-on for manual chair

Never store them for any length of time after use unless fully charged and check them every few weeks. Ten months sounds about right for these batteries

  2. Larger tires on a scooter?

    If you want to go up a size you could go with 4.10/3.5-4s which is 4.10 wide, 3.5" sidewall, 4" hole. Actual diameter varies from 11" to 11.5".

    3.00-4 tires here:

    In case it helps with this discussion, the standard SLA batteries shipped with the chair are the MK Battery ES12-12 and the charger is MK Model: LS 24/4.

    I agree with Takenaback that everyone is different with their requirements. My husband has hemiplegia

    This is the working 36 volt version. It has an on off switch, a thumb throttle, and a hands free cruise control.
  5. Can I use swing away arms on ZX1

    We also have user-friendly anti-tips on the ZRA, which we had just enough room for on the camber tube with the ZX-1. We did have a problem with the anti-tilt mechanism hitting the back release bar. This is because our rigidizer bar is quite low. We have the 4? Deep Backrest Rigidizer
