  • If you use your mobility scooter or wheelchair every day, recharge the batteries every day.
  • If you use it weekly, when recharge when you have finished using it.
  • Every two months, let the batteries discharge until the battery gauge shows a low charge, then fully recharge them.
  • If you are storing your scooter for more than 6 weeks, fully charge the batteries and then disconnect them. Check and recharge the batteries monthly.
