Your power chair is designed to provide optimum stability under normal driving conditionsdry, level surfaces composed of concrete, blacktop, or asphalt. However, Pride recognizes that there will be times when you will encounter other surface types. For this reason, your power chair is designed to perform admirably on packed soil, grass, and gravel.
If you will be traveling with your power chair, you may find it necessary to use a lift/elevation product to aid in transportation. Pride recommends that you closely review the instructions, specifications, and safety information set forth by the manufacturer of the lift/elevation product before using that product.

J E T Your Jet 2 has two main assemblies: the seat and the power base. See figures 3 and 4. Typically, the seating assembly includes the armrests, seatback, and a joystick/controller. Your Jet 2 seat may also have some optional accessories attached to it, such as a basket, a cane/crutch holder, or a cup holder.
Charger Connector: This is where the charger connects to the controller. n Main Circuit Breaker: The main circuit breaker is a safety feature built into your Jet 2. When the batteries and the motors are heavily strained (e.g., from excessive loads), the main circuit breaker will trip to prevent damage to the motors and the electronics.

In addition to indicating the current state of battery charge, the battery condition meter can also indicate possible problems with your Jet 2.

CHARGING THE BATTERIES The onboard battery charger is essential in providing long life for your Jet 2 batteries. See figure 24.

They do not have a memory like nickel-cadmium batteries. We work closely with our battery manufacturer to provide a battery that best suits your Jet 2s specific demands. Fresh batteries arrive regularly at Pride and are promptly shipped with a full charge. During shipping, the batteries encounter temperature extremes that may influence initial performance.
What about shipping? If you wish to use a freight company to ship your Jet 2 to your final destination, repack your Jet 2 in the original shipping container and ship the batteries in separate boxes.
