Batteries and Charger
We recommend that you use deep-cycle batteries that are sealed and maintenance free for your
power scooter. Both are lead acid (SLA) and gel cell are Deep cycle batteries that are similar in
performance. Deep-cycle batteries are specifically designed to provide power, drain down, and then
accept a relatively quick charge. Lead acid batteries should be charged as often as possible.
Specification of the battery that we recommend:
Type: Deep Cycle Sealed lead acid or gel ell
Size:
20 AH
Voltage:
12 V Each (4) totals
Depending on the use, terrain and driving conditions, the batteries will provide a range of 43 miles of
travel. However, even if the power scooter is not in use we recommend that the batteries be charged
at least a month.
Note:
- Do not use any automotive batteries, they are not designed to handle a long, deep discharge
and are unsafe for use in power scooter.
- The useful life of a battery is quite often a reflection of the care it receives.
- Always charge your batteries in well ventilated areas.
- The charger is intended for indoor use only.
- For maximum performance, it is recommended that you replace all four batteries at the same
time if the batteries are weak.
- If the vehicle will not be used for a long period. Arrange to have batteries recharged at least
once every month to avoid deterioration.
Recharge Battery only when the key is in off position/ when indicator is showing low status. This
confirms batteries need to be recharged.
Charger Use
1. Plug charger into electric wall outlet.
2. Insert charger plug into the scooter’s charging port which is located directly in front of the
scooter’s main body directly under the seat.
3. Red charger light indicates scooter is charging
4. Green charger light indicates the scooter is fully charged.

EMC Statements
This portion of the content will provide the user with basic information that describes the problems
with EMI, known sources of EMI, protective measures either to lessen the possibility or exposure or
to minimize the degree of exposure, and suggested action should unexpected or erratic movement
occur.
Caution: It is very important that you read this information regarding the possible effects of
electromagnetic interference on your electric P17RT WHEELCHAIR.
■ ELECTROMAGNETIC INTERFERENCE (EMI) FROM RADIO WAVE
SOURCES Powered vehicle may be susceptible to electromagnetic interference (EMI), which is
interfering electromagnetic energy (EM) emitted from sources such as radio stations, TV stations,
amateur radio (HAM) transmitters, two-way radios, and cellular phones. The interference (from radio
wave sources) can cause the powered vehicle to release its brakes, move by itself, or move in
unintended directions. It can also permanently damage the powered vehicle’s control system. The
intensity of the interfering EM energy can be measured in volts per meter (V/m). Each powered
vehicle can resist EMI up to certain intensity. This is called its “immunity level”. The higher the
immunity level the greater the protection. At this time, current technology can achieve at least a 20
V/m immunity level, which would provide useful protection from the more common sources of
radiated EMI.
This powered vehicle model as shipped, with no further modification, has an immunity level of 20
V/m without any accessories.
There are several sources of relatively intense electromagnetic fields in the everyday environment.
Some of these sources are obvious and easy to avoid. Others are not apparent and exposure is
unavoidable. However, we believe that by following the warning listed below, your risk to EMI will be
minimized.
The sources of radiated EMI can be broadly classified into three types:
1. Hand-held portable transceivers (transmitter-receivers with the antenna mounted directly on the
transmitting unit.
Examples include: citizens band (CB) radios, “walkie talkie”, security, fire, and police transceivers,
cellular telephones and other personal communication devices.
Note: some cellular telephones and similar transmit signal while they are ON, even when not being
used; 24 Medium-range mobile transceivers, such as those used in police cars, fire trucks,
ambulances and taxis. These usually have the antenna mounted on the outside of the vehicle; and
3. Long-range transmitters and transceivers, such as commercial broadcast
Transmitter (radio and TV broadcast antenna towers) and amateur (HAM) radios.
11
Note: Other types of hand-held devices, such as cordless phones, laptop
Computers, AM/FM radios, TV sets, CD player, and cassette players, and small appliances, such as
electric shavers and hair dryers, so far as we know, are not
Likely to cause EMI problems to your powered vehicle.
■ POWERED VEHICLE ELECTROMAGNETIC INTERFERENCE (EMI)
Because EM energy rapidly becomes more intense as one move closer to the transmitting antenna
(source), the EM fields from hand-held radio wave sources (transceivers) are of special concern. It is
possible to unintentionally bring high levels of EM energy very closer to the powered vehicle’s vehicle
movement and braking. Therefore, the warnings listed below are recommended to prevent possible
interference with the control system of the powered vehicle control system while using these
devices. This can affect powered
■ WARNINGS
Electromagnetic interference (EMI) from sources such as radio and TV stations, amateur radio (HAM)
transmitters, two-way radios, and cellular phones can affect powered vehicles and motorized
wheelchair. Following the warnings listed below should reduce the 39 40 chance of unintended brake
release or powered vehicle movement, which could
Result in serious injury.
1. Do not operate hand-held transceivers-receivers), such as citizens band (CB) radios, or turn
ON personal communication devices, such as cellular phones, while the powered vehicle is
turned ON;
2. Be aware of nearby transmitters, such as radio or TV stations, and try to avoid coming close to
them;
3. If unintended movement or brake release occurs, turn the powered vehicle OFF as soon as it is
safe;
4. Be aware that adding accessories or components, or modifying the powered vehicle, may
make it more susceptible to EMI (Note: There is no easy way to evaluated their effect on the
overall immunity of the powered vehicle); and 25
5. Report all incidents of unintended movement or brake release to the powered vehicle
manufacturer, and note whether there is a source of EMI nearby,
■
IMPORTANT INFORMATION
1. 20 Volts per meter (V/m) is a generally achievable and useful immunity level against EMI (the
higher the level, the greater the protection);
2. This product has an immunity level of 20 V/m without any accessories and connected to it.
