We get calls on a regular basis, from people nationwide, wondering what is wrong with their power wheelchairs. Most cases it's just bad batteries which is a fairly inexpensive fix. A new set of batteries should run around $170-$250 depending on the size and mileage per charge.
Symptoms of Bad Batteries:
- Power Chair is only holding a charge for a few hours
- Power Chair won't go full speed
- Batteries have not been fully charged for an extended period of time.
A good rule of thumb for charging your power wheelchair batteries is plugging in the charger every night before you go to bed. If you let your power wheelchair go an extended amount of time without charging the batteries will go bad.
