Looking after your products is the first thing that any of our customers can do to ensure that their products condition is maintained and that it's lifespan is prolonged as much as possible.
All equipment experiences wear and tear over time, but there are key fundamentals that anyone can do to ensure that their mobility equipment's condition is maintained and they reduce the risk of any faults occurring over time.
Powered Mobility Equipment (Mobility Scooters & Powerchairs)
The main component in looking after any mobility equipment that relies on it's batteries to get them from A to B is of course to look after their batteries. Please download our battery care guide to learn more about how you can look after your batteries.
But here are the main principles to follow:
- When first receiving your item, charge your battery for a minimum of 14 hours.
- Avoid running your batteries flat.
- Avoid short burst charges (i.e. 2-3 hours).
- If using daily, charge your battery each night ready for the next day.
- If using once or twice per week, then charging 1-2 times a week is perfectly fine.
- Don't leave your batteries idle for long period of time.
- If storing, fully charge your battery for a minimum of 14 hours.
- Only use the charger that was provided.
Try to keep your scooter or powerchair dry and indoors if storing.
