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 tiller console indicates the approxi-
mate strength of your batteries using a colour code. From right to left,
green indicates fully charged batteries, yellow a draining charge and
red indicates that an immediate recharge is necessary. See figure 9. To
ensure the highest accuracy, the battery condition meter should be checked
while operating your scooter at full speed on a dry, level surface.
The off-board charger supplied with your scooter is equipped with a 115/230 voltage switch. Confirm that
this switch is in the proper position for your locality. If you are not sure what the voltage is in your country,
contact your local electricity dealer before inserting the charger power lead plug into an electrical outlet. If
the setting is incorrect, the charger will not function properly. Slide the voltage switch to the appropriate
position. See figure 10.
The LED lights on the charger indicate different charger conditions at various times: charger power on,
charging in progress, charging complete. Refer to the label on the charger for a complete explanation of
