    A vehicle idling doesn't do a good job of charging a battery. Charge comes from current, which comes from RPMs. Low RPMs at idle means little charge. It's possible that the charge removed from the...

    I already replaced the battery in my van so I can't test it. But I still have the battery in the car. Water level was low so I added distilled water. Right away, there was an improvement. The water...

    The max dose of oral baclofen for long term is 120 mg per day (160 mg for a short term), which I was taking for years without any consistent relief. I had a DREZ procedure with great results. No pain...

    The baclofen pump works for me. But the spasms still won until I got rid of the kidney stones. A CT scan detected the kidney stones but ultrasound did not.

    I would like the convenience of driving from my wheelchair. I know they offer locks that secure your wheelchair to the floor. But how about neck and back support? The back on my wheelchair comes up...

    The $420 battery was just an example of "best" available from my van. I'm doubtful that I would get my money's worth. But I will say that my original car battery (that costs over $400) lasted 13...

    AGM: Truly maintenance free
    Flooded: Marketed as maintenance free, but fine print says to check/add water to older batteries and in hot weather.

    If maintenance free is a requirement, then that eliminates flooded lead acid batteries. What's left? AGM for all intents and purposes. How do you select the best? The one with the best specs? The one...

    The term deep cycle is somewhat ambiguous. It can mean a battery that is intended to be deeply discharged while used and then charged when not used, like in a wheelchair or golf cart. It is also used...

    Yes, that is the reason.

    Not if the battery is dead.

    It was working fine. Then the next time I went to start the van, the battery was dead. I tried to charge it several times. It wouldn't hold...

    You say the deploy switch gets the platform only so far. Then the down switch further deploys it and then fully lowers it. That is how it is supposed to work. The limit switches select the platform...

    Interesting. I like the Denver airport. They definitely have more control if they don't contract the work to others.

    The people who operate the aisle chair are agents of the airport not the airline. They are not required to transfer you.
