BATTERIES AND CHARGING
Your scooter requires two long-lasting, 12-volt, deep-cycle batteries that are sealed and maintenance free.
They are recharged by an off-board charging system.
Charge your scooter's batteries prior to using it for the first time.
Keep the batteries fully charged to keep your scooter running smoothly.
READING YOUR BATTERY VOLTAGE
The battery condition meter on the control console assembly indicates the
approximate strength of your batteries using a colour code. From right to
left, green indicates fully charged batteries, yellow indicates a draining
charge and red indicates that an immediate recharge is necessary. See figure
8. To ensure the highest accuracy, the battery condition meter should be
checked while operating your scooter at full speed on a dry, level surface.
CHARGING YOUR BATTERIES
PROHIBITED! Never use an extension lead to plug in your
battery charger. Plug the charger directly into a properly
wired standard electrical outlet.
PROHIBITED! Removal of grounding prong can create electrical hazard. If necessary,
properly install an approved 3-pronged adapter to an electrical outlet having 2-pronged
PROHIBITED! Do not allow unsupervised children to play near the scooter while the
batteries are charging. Pride recommends that you do not charge the batteries while the
scooter is occupied.
MANDATORY! Read the battery charging instructions in this manual and in the manual
supplied with the battery charger before charging the batteries.
WARNING! Explosive gases may be generated while charging the batteries. Keep the
scooter and battery charger away from sources of ignition such as flames or sparks and
provide adequate ventilation when charging the batteries.
WARNING! Ensure that both ends of the charger power lead are clean and dry before
plugging the charger power lead into the off-board charger port or the electrical outlet.
WARNING! Inspect the battery charger, wiring and connectors for damage before each
use. Contact your authorised Pride Dealer if damage is found.
WARNING! Do not attempt to open the battery charger case. If the battery charger does
not appear to be working correctly, contact your authorised Pride Dealer.
WARNING! If the off-board battery charger is equipped with cooling slots, then do not
attempt to insert objects through these slots.
WARNING! If your battery charger has not been tested and approved for outdoor use,
then do not expose it to adverse or extreme weather conditions. If the battery charger
is exposed to adverse or extreme weather conditions, then it must be allowed to adjust
to the difference in environmental conditions before use indoors. Refer to the manual
supplied with the battery charger for more information.
