Mobility scooter batteries are one of the parts of a scooter that commonly needs replaced, no matter how well you take care of your scooter; however, you can make your battery last longer. When your battery does run out of juice for good, make sure you aren’t paying for something you don’t have to. Most insurers, including Medicare, will pay to replace your batteries, at least on an annual basis, so there really is no reason for your scooter to ever be immobilized, thus leaving you stranded.
Maintain the batteries properly. Just as you do with other parts of your scooter, maintain those batteries. This starts with keeping it charged and not draining it down all the time. In addition, don't expose it out in the open to harsh conditions and elements, such as heat or light. This, too, will shorten the shelf-life of your battery. If you are in a more harsh environment, you may want to consider a different type of battery (such as what's called a gel cell, as opposed to a wet cell).
Develop a system. That way you don't have to arrange someone to drive you to the store, for example, for a new battery. You should be able to quickly order your battery via phone or online. Again, this is where a good relationship with a trusted merchant comes in handy.
