Thread: battery charger?

    battery charger?

    I have a large battery on my chair, however I find that on some days even with a full charge it isn't enough power to get me through the day. I don't have caregivers around to swap out batteries. So I was thinking their must be a portable battery charger. Or a solar battery charger? Something that I could conviently carry with me. Does anyone know of anything?

    How old is the battery? They can lose longevity with age, especially certain types.

    You may have undersized batteries.

    You should be using the larger "Group 24" gel cell batteries. I bet if you check, you have group 22 installed. The larger group 24 will last more than a day for even the most active user.

    the battery is only 3 months old. I don't know the exact size, I will check.

    Def. something wrong with the charger showing a false charge or defective batteries. I had smaller batteries put in my chair as I had a new tilt system installed like 2 years ago. I can still go atleast 3 days before charging. I went to Six Flags last year and cruised up and down those hills for like 10 hrs and didn't die. I'd request a fresh set. Good luck.
