Buying a mobility scooter
Mobility scooters come in either
three or four-wheel versions and are
primarily designed for use on footpaths
or in shopping centres.
Electric mobility scooters are
powered by batteries. They are a
simple vehicle with few working parts,
requiring a relatively low level of
In general, electric scooters have a
maximum speed of less than 10 km/h.
They are activated by a simple throttle,
operated by the fingers, which controls
both speed and braking. Steering is via
a variety of handlebars that operate in
a similar fashion to bicycles.
Modern motorised scooters are
powered by two 12-volt batteries. Bat-
teries in mobility scooters are not like
car batteries in that they are a deep
cycle battery. These batteries are rated
in amp hours, which is how many
hours a battery will run when one
amp is drawn in power. This rating
will determine the range a mobility
scooter will travel between charges.
It is important that only cyclic
batteries are used. General use bat-
teries are not suitable for electric
scooters -- they will have a very short
life span as they are not designed for
electric vehicle use. Poor battery
selection can lead to problems down
the track. Car batteries are designed to
start the car, not run it continuously, as
scooter batteries are. Think of the
batteries as fuel for the scooter.
Motorised scooters have a finger
accelerator to activate the electronics
and consequently the motor and
brakes. These controls work a poten-
tiometer that gives an infinitely vari-
able speed. These are usually of the
wig-wag style where the forward and
reverse function is operated by the one
lever that is operated by either hand.
