Mobility Battery Fitting Service

Battery Central Brisbane offers a mobile battery fitting service for our mobility scooter customers in selected Brisbane, Ipswich, Logan and Redlands areas. Our technician will come to you.

Experience has found that most mobility batteries have failed prematurely because of unrelated issues with the scooter or have incorrectly fitted batteries.

Having your scooter maintained and serviced regularly by a reputable company will ensure maximum life out of your batteries.

Here is a list of common issues to be kept in check that could prematurely shorten the life.

  • Brakes sticking
    This is a common fault; it not only wears brake parts but also puts excessive load on your engine and batteries.

  • The battery charger is not charging correctly
    Not using the correct charger and settings will prematurely shorten the life of the batteries

  • Controller faulty
    A faulty controller will put excessive wear on the engine and braking system.
  • Damaged and faulty wiring & sockets
    Poor wiring and fitting can overheat and cause a fire.

  • Incorrect batteries fitted
    Most quality brand mobility scooters come out with EV Gel batteries designed to handle that application; replacing them with batteries not intended for mobility scooters will cost money in the long run.

  • Engine bushes wear
    Worn bushes will arc out and put excessive load on the batteries but prematurely shorten the motor’s life.

As a local business, we have always strived to give customers value for money, motivating us by providing quality service.

No, not all batteries advertised as mobility batteries are suitable. However, most reputable scooter manufacturers come standard with gel batteries designed to handle high frequent discharging. Standard AGM deep cycle batteries vary in design and will work in light applications; however, a quality Gel battery will handle the higher discharge and significantly outperform the AGM counterparts in the larger sizes.When replacing with the Maxon QCELL batteries, you can rest assure you are getting the latest Carbon Gel technology designed as a direct replacement for the OEM battery.
Most manufacturers claim a distance using a laboratory test; however, in real-world situations, you need to consider other factors such as terrain, condition of the scooter, and the driver’s weight. In saying that, a driver weighing around 70Kg on a relatively flat surface using a medium-size scooter with 35Ah – 40Ah batteries, you would expect around 25 – 30Km.For the larger 55Ah and 80Ah, you would expect 45-55Km. When fitting new Gel batteries, they need to be cycled at least 12 times to reach their full potential.
Ensuring your batteries are fully charged is integral to getting longer life and performance out of your batteries. With all the new chargers these days, you can’t overcharge the batteries on a mobility scooter, so you can be confident to leave the charger on overnight.Most modern chargers are fitted with an automatic cut-off, so they will simply turn off when fully charged. The more advanced multi-stage chargers will go into a float or storage mode, so the batteries will remain to topped up if not used for long periods.
Yes, they are designed especially for the mobility scooter application, which requires a robust, frequent discharge in a battery.They are similar to the standard fully sealed Gel batteries. Both use a common lead positive plate; however, the Lead Carbon uses an advanced carbon composite on the negative plate. The advanced carbon composite on the negative plate has similar characteristics to a ‘supercapacitor’, which allows for faster charging and high discharge, plus helps reduce sulfation to the negative plate while in a partial state of charge.
If your model has the room to change to larger batteries. In that case, you can replace them with higher capacity (Ah) batteries, increasing your range. However, apart from costing more and being heavier to lift, you will need to check if your current charger can charge the new batteries to specifications. Not charging properly can prematurely shorten the life of the batteries, which may not give any more gain. This will also void the warranty. Best talk to an expert about your upgrade plans.
