FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
How does the charger work?
When your Travel Scooter's battery voltage is low, the charger works harder, sending more electrical
current to the batteries to bring up their charge. As the batteries approach a full charge, the charger sends
less and less electrical current. When the batteries are fully charged, the current sent from the charger is at
nearly zero amperage. Therefore, when the charger is plugged in, it maintains the charge on your Travel
Scooter's batteries, but does not overcharge them. We do not recommend that you charge your Travel
Scooter's batteries for more than 24 consecutive hours.
What if my Travel Scooter's batteries will not charge?
