    I suspect you keep it at a nice "comfortable" temperature (70-75 degrees) and don't try to store it out on the porch, garage, etc.?

    Can you operate the lift WHILE the battery is being charged?

    Looks like the hard case makes it easier to transport. I wish they made one for the Hoyer Advance.

    The lift I was thinking of appears to have found a new home so I was unable to examine it (and verify it doesn't operate when connected to mains power).

    However, I found the power pack from another lift (Invacare somethingorother) which had apparently been removed from its lift (mechanism) -- no doubt salvaged in case another such lift materialized but needed a battery. As suspected, it contains COTS batteries -- two 12V 2.9AHr AGM batteries. A quick google shows these should be available for < $25/ea.

    This particular case came apart with 6 Torx screws. The white stuff is a bit of foam rubber that I moved out of the way to expose the batteries.

    [If you ever have to replace these sorts of batteries (having "faston" connectors -- look like a screwdriver BLADE), be sure you note the width of the connector blade -- they come in 0.187" and 0.25", typically.]
