Like all electronics, your mobility scooter or chair needs to be charged. Charge your scooter overnight (6 hours minimum-to-8 hours maximum for complete charge) and always take the battery charger with you in case the battery gets low.


[1] Remove the key from the unit, pug your charger into an approved AC wall outlet, then plug the other end of the power cord into the charger port on your equipment.

[2] Verify that all lights are lit on your charger, if not check both the wall outlet connection and the battery charger connection to ensure both are connected secure.

[3] When the equipment is completely charged the "charge" light will turn solid green.

Note: Always completely disconnect your battery charger and stow it away before operating your equipment.
