mobility batteries will be delivered
I often wonder about older people’s willingness to buy goods online. Of course I say this because I am no “spring chicken” myself. My confidence in online shopping has, however, increased in the past ten years. Importantly, companies have become very adept at the way that they now package things to send out to us.
As internet sellers ourselves, we here at batteriesontheweb.co.uk have vastly improved our battery packing methods. Consequently, we now have far fewer courier-derived problems between our packing station and our customers. Older people are more likely to drive mobility scooters and electric wheelchairs.
So, this advice is primarily aimed at them. Of course, to build up their confidence when buying mobility batteries online, Including the fact that we are only a phone call away for free advice that these scooter drivers may require.
A common question is about battery size!
So, apart from the question of “when will my, mobility batteries will be delivered?” one of the most frequently asked is about battery capacity and size match. Most people who drive mobility scooters try to upgrade their batteries for some reason or another! When asked why, the person often says that his scooter will go faster or on a longer journey.
Mobility scooters are powered by an electric motor driven by usually 2 VRLA batteries. So, depending on the scooter, Then size and weight will determine the size of the electric motor and, finally, the correct battery size to drive this motor.
The appropriate size batteries are selected and incorporated into the scooter’s tight metrics. Space enables more driver comfort and more leg room for the scooter user.
Therefore, an exact replacement size is important. Unfortunately, larger batteries will not fit within the tight parameters. There is a slight twist to this!
Some battery manufacturers make batteries with slightly bigger Amps for the same size casing. So, in other words, you could get a slightly larger battery that will fit in the same space on your scooter.
A 75-ah VRLA battery is a good example!
So one example is the large 75-Ah mobility battery. These are very much used on the larger, more powerful scooters.
If you are willing to pay the extra price, then you can get an upgrade to 85 Ah and also 100 Ah batteries with the same casing size. However, I must reiterate that they do cast more. You must consider if the extra cost of a few more Amps will be worth it!
In some cases, I think it would be worth an upgrade.
Perhaps it would help mobility scooter users in a hilly district. Hence, more power would help get up the hills faster or even not use as much power, therefore saving the battery.
Other differences are in the batteries made by different companies. So, a good example of this would be the 34AH Lucas battery. This battery is a great seller for us.
However, other brands have added the odd Amp for some reason! I suspect it is a selling gimmick. Therefore, Powersonic lists a 35Ah VRLA battery as being the same size (physically). Some will go up to 36 AH!
However, I am not so sure what the difference would be with a couple of amps.
In my opinion, the overall package is the most desirable thing. Including the price. You could end up paying a few pounds extra for a different brand just for a non accountable 1 Ah difference.
Finally, I can assure our internet customers that they can rely on such information given to them over the phone or via email. Thus giving you more confidence in our company when buying your mobility scooter batteries online. So, mobility batteries will be delivered correctly and within a few days.
