    Permobil C500 Battery Replacement Advice

    I have a Permobil C500 that I keep for a spare power chair. The batteries have died and I'd rather not spend $479 for a pair of MK brand batteries. I found these UB12750 batteries for $160 each. Just wondering if anyone has purchased these and had any experience with them. Any suggestions would be welcome.

    With batteries it's a false economy to go cheap, you only get what you pay for, if you will. Those batteries are AGM, not gel, so you have to make sure they're charged at the correct rate.

    Where can you buy MK's for that price? That's about as good as I've seen lately.

    Assuming you have group 24 batteries, buy group 34 MK gell. That will save you money.

    ^^^ Those are group 34 so you'll lose quite a bit of range. On that topic, you could install group 22's and save more money, which works if you don't travel much in the chair.

    I purchased a set of these and they latest just over a year. Would not buy again. Usually get what you pay for.
