Mobility Scooter Batteries-Introduction,Cycle Life and Usage

Mobility Scooter Batteries-Introduction,Cycle Life and Usage

Page view

In our daily life, we can often get in touch with a variety of means of transportation, and mobility scooter is one of them. As a small vehicle for carrying people, it has brought a lot of convenience to many people's lives. The operation of mobility scooter needs batteries as its energy source. What kind of batteries does it need  This article will introduce the batteries used by mobility scooter.

What is the best battery for a mobility scooter 

Before introducing batteries, we should understand what kind of batteries mobility scooter needs. First of all, the normal operation of the mobility scooter requires about 24 V voltage, which usually requires two 12V batteries in series (never mix batteries of different models or manufacturers). Second, it also needs a rechargeable secondary battery to meet the user's recycling needs. Moreover, the cycle life of the battery should be long enough to meet the long-term needs of the users for the mobility scooter.

At present, the most commonly used mobile scooter is sealed lead-acid battery. Among all kinds of sealed lead-acid batteries, AGM battery and Gel battery are the most widely used in mobility scooter. Compared with AGM battery, the main advantage of AGM battery is large discharge current and low cost. The advantages of gel battery in quality are more obvious

GEL battery has a long cycle life. GEL battery has a good limiting design, which can protect the positive plate and improve the cycle life. Moreover, the battery has a thick steel plate, which can effectively prevent the corrosion of the internal components of the battery.

GEL battery has good safety and adaptability. It has a super stable polymer separator, which can effectively reduce the risk of short circuit. Moreover, it has good high temperature resistance, water loss resistance and strong tolerance to poor charging parameters.

GEL battery has good long-term discharge performance, high charging flexibility and low self discharge efficiency. GEL battery discharge voltage is stable, suitable for long-term discharge. When charging, the gel battery can continue to be used without full charging. Users can charge the battery to maintain the power by using the fragmentary time, which is convenient for the use of mobility scooter.

Although the performance of AGM battery is worse than that of GEL battery, AGM battery still has a large market share due to its price advantage in cost. Moreover, in recent years, AGM technology has developed rapidly. It is possible that the new AGM battery will surpass GEL battery in performance in a few years.

 

How long do you mobility scooter battery last 

The cycle life of a mobility scooter battery is not fixed, it depends on how you use it. In general, the average lifespan of a mobility scooter battery is 18 months. If the use frequency of the battery is higher, the service life of the battery will be significantly affected. For example, if you use the mobility scooter only once or twice a week, the battery life can last about three years. If you use a battery for a long time, its life may be only 12 to 18 months. Therefore, most manufacturers usually offer a 12-month warranty for mobility scooter batteries. The cycle life of the battery is also related to the driving style of the user. If the driver often accelerates the mobility scooter suddenly, it will accelerate the aging of the battery. In addition, the carrying capacity of the mobility scooter, as well as the environment and terrain of the driving distance, will affect the cycle life of the battery.

In order to prolong the service life of the battery as much as possible and maintain the good performance of the battery, we need to learn how to properly store the mobility scooter battery. First of all, in the storage of mobility Before scooter battery, it is necessary to fully charge the battery. If it is stored for a long time, the battery should be recharged at least every month. Secondly, the battery should be stored in a cool and dry place. Overheated or extremely cold surroundings will reduce the efficiency, output, service life and delay the charging process of the battery. If the battery is too humid, it may cause adverse reactions of the battery. Finally, when storing, make sure that the battery has been powered off, and that the battery will not contact with any conductor to avoid the risk of short circuit.

Can you use a car battery on a mobility scooter 

Absolutely not, mobility scooter battery is different from car battery. Mobility scooter battery is a deep cycle battery, which can provide stable current in a certain period of time. Car batteries, on the other hand, are designed to provide a large current in a short period of time when the car starts. Therefore, it is wrong to connect the car battery to the mobility scooter. Although it can be used, the battery will soon run out of energy, and there is a high probability that the battery will be damaged. In short, do not use car batteries for mobility scooter unless it is an emergency.

Similarly, car battery charger can also charge the mobility scooter battery and it can work, but it is extremely dangerous. You'd better use the original charger supplied by the manufacturer. If you need to replace it, please confirm whether the battery technology of the battery matches the charger and whether the charger is equipped with the correct algorithm. Otherwise, the battery may be damaged or even explode.

All in all, unless your mobility scooter and its batteries are certified and approved by experts, you are not allowed to use car batteries in mobility scooter or use other chargers to charge your batteries. This is not only for the safety of batteries, but also for the safety of users.

Hope you can find this article helpful.
