BATTERIES AND CHARGING
Your Travel Scooter requires two long-lasting, 12-volt, deep-cycle batteries that are sealed and mainte-
nance free. They are recharged by the supplied off-board charging system.
Charge your Travel Scooter's batteries for 8 to 14 hours prior to using it for the first time.
Keep the batteries fully charged to keep your Travel Scooter running smoothly.
READING YOUR BATTERY VOLTAGE
The battery condition meter on the tiller console indicates the approx-
imate strength of your batteries using a colour code. From right to left
on the meter, green indicates fully charged batteries, yellow a draining
charge, and red indicates that an immediate recharge is necessary. See
figure 12. To ensure the highest accuracy, the battery condition meter
should be checked while operating your Travel Scooter at full speed
on a dry, level surface.
