The first thing you should do is get the fluid refilled every once in a while. Most bike batteries are easily accessible, usually located under you seat, or on the side of your bike. Each cell of the battery will tell you where the maximum and minimum levels of fluid are.

You should also remove the battery from the bike when you’re not using it; so during the winter and cold months, remove the battery. Be sure to store the battery out of the cold and into a warm place.

Be sure to charge the battery while it is in storage; even when it is in storage, the battery is discharging. The way to help maintain a longer battery life is to periodically charge it while in storage.

How to Maintain your Power Wheelchair’s Battery

The short answer to this question is to simply charge your battery overnight, using the manufacturer’s charger; you should do this every two weeks. Don’t do this more than every two weeks, and don’t leave it charged longer than about eight hours; if you leave it longer you will damage your battery.

We recommend using a low power maintenance charger; these chargers will help your battery last longer in storage, and they don’t damage your battery as much as high powered chargers. photo(9)

If you’re going away without your power chair, you should charge the battery overnight, before you leave, and then completely disconnect the battery from the chair. When you return, don’t forget to reconnect the battery and recharge them, if you’re gone for more than two weeks.

If you’re storing your chair long term, your battery will last longer if it’s kept in a cool place, rather than your warm home.

Just make sure you keep your chairs charged! ‘
