Testing a Mobility Scooter Charger
So, where do we start?
The first thing to do is to check for a power-related problem.
- Connect the mobility charger to the mains power and ensure that the lights are all on and appear to be functioning correctly.
- Leave the charger charging the mobility scooter batteries overnight. Before charging begins, note the level of the batteries on the battery charge level indicator.
- The following day, or after several hours, disconnect the battery charger and turn on the mobility scooter, observing the battery charge level indicator. The battery charge level should be sitting at full. If it is not, it does highlight an issue with the battery charger and you should take your mobility scooter to your local specialist.
- Check the charger manual as it may contain a troubleshooting guide that will answer your questions or allow you to ascertain what is causing the problem.
Mobility Scooter Specialist
A mobility scooter specialist will be able to place the charger on a charger analyser to assess its actual performance.
Chances are if it’s not the battery charger, there is another issue that needs solving with the mobility scooter. So make sure you take both the Mobility Scooter and mobility scooter battery charger to your specialist appointment.
