Batteries

There are 2 main types of mobility scooter battery.

Lead acid batteries. These are cheaper, lighter and they last longer, but they need the most maintenance. They contain a mixture of water and electrolyte which must be regularly checked and topped up. Take care not to spill the liquid as it can burn you.

Gel cell batteries. These are more expensive and they often last for a shorter time than lead acid batteries. They can't be spilled, they need no maintenance and they can be taken on planes. BHTA have advice on disabling mobilty scooters for air travel.
