Why You Shouldn’t DIY Battery Installations

Rey Manzano |


While wheelchairs and mobility scooters have rechargeable batteries, they gradually lose their ability to hold a charge. As the wheelchair or mobility scooter battery is recharged over and over, you may begin to notice that the charge lasts a shorter amount of time as the battery ages, making more frequent recharging necessary. This is an indication that your wheelchair batteries or scooter batteries need replacing. While battery installation may seem simple enough that most people just assume you can just connect the battery terminal based on the color of the wire, this is not the case with mobility scooters and electric wheelchairs. As experts, we at Triple M Mobility have written down why you shouldn’t DIY battery installations. 

1. You could cause damage  
Unlike cars that use a single 12V battery system, these vehicles use a 24 volt. This 24V is a system made possible by connecting two 12V batteries in a serial connection. If you are familiar with basic circuitry, then it’s ok, but if not, you can end up blowing a few fuses in the system. Even worse, you can end up damaging the main control unit, which can be very expensive to replace.

2. It is an expensive affair 
You can blow a few fuses at different places for the most part. You can even damage the main controller onboard, which can be costly to replace. We only charge up to $45 for most battery installations. Save yourself some time and headache and just let the professional do it.

Do things right - Hire a professional 
Our technicians here at Triple M have been trained and certified with years of experience. We can get it done in less than thirty mins at a minimal cost. Our technicians have an expert understanding and knowledge of circuitry. While most places charge somewhere north of $60, we only charge up to $45 here at Triple M.
