SAFETY
WARNING! Do not operate your new power chair for the first time without completely
reading and understanding this owner’s manual.
Your power chair is a state-of-the-art life-enhancement device designed to increase mobility. Pride provides an
extensive variety of products to best fit the individual needs of the power chair user. Please be aware that the final
selection and purchasing decision regarding the type of power chair to be used is the responsibility of the power
chair user, who is capable of making such a decision, and his/her healthcare professional (i.e., medical doctor,
physical therapist, etc.).
The contents of this manual are based on the expectation that a mobility device expert has properly fitted the power
chair to the user and has assisted the prescribing healthcare professional and/or the authorized Pride provider in the
instruction process for the use of the product.
There are certain situations, including some medical conditions, where the power chair user will need to practice
operating the power chair in the presence of a trained attendant. A trained attendant can be defined as a family
member or care professional specially trained in assisting a power chair user in various daily living activities.
As you begin using your power chair during daily activities, you will probably encounter situations in which you will
need some practice. Simply take your time and you will soon be in full and confident control as you maneuver
through doorways, on and off of elevators, up and down ramps, and over moderate terrain.
Below are some precautions, tips, and other safety considerations that will help the user become accustomed to
operating the power chair safely.
Modifications
Pride has designed and engineered your power chair to provide maximum mobility and utility. A wide range of
accessories is available from your authorized Pride provider to further customize your power chair to better suit
your needs and/or preferences. However, under no circumstances should you modify, add, remove, or disable any
feature, part, or function of your power chair.
WARNING! Do not modify your power chair in any way not authorized by Pride. Unauthorized modifications may result in personal injury and/or damage to your power chair.
Pre-Ride Safety Check
Get to know the feel of your power chair and its capabilities. Pride recommends that you perform a safety check
before each use to make sure your power chair operates smoothly and safely. See X. “Care and Maintenance.”
Perform the following inspections prior to using your power chair:
n Check for proper tire inflation. Maintain 30-35 psi in each tire (if equipped with pneumatic tires).
n Check all electrical connections. Make sure they are tight and not corroded.
n Check all controller connections to the electronics tray. Make sure they are secured properly.

II.
SAFETY
n Check the brakes. See X. “Care and Maintenance.”
n Check battery charge. See IX. “Batteries and Charging.”
NOTE: If you discover a problem, contact your authorized Pride provider for assistance.
Weight Limitations
Your power chair is rated for a maximum weight capacity. Please refer to the specifications table for this limit.
WARNING! Exceeding the weight capacity voids your warranty and may result in personal
injury and/or damage to your power chair. Pride will not be held responsible for injuries
and/or property damage resulting from failure to observe weight limitations.
WARNING! Do not carry passengers on your power chair. Carrying passengers on your
power chair may result in personal injury and/or property damage.
Tire Inflation
If your power chair is equipped with pneumatic tires, you should check or have the air pressure checked at least
once a week. Proper inflation pressures will prolong the life of your tires and help ensure the smooth operation of
your power chair.
WARNING! It is important that 30-35 psi tire pressure be maintained in pneumatic tires at
all times. Do not underinflate or overinflate your tires. Low pressure may result in loss of
control, and overinflated tires may burst. Failure to maintain 30-35 psi tire pressure in
pneumatic tires at all times may result in tire and/or wheel failure, causing serious personal injury and/or damage to your Jazzy.
WARNING! Inflate your power chair drive tires from a regulated air source with an available pressure gauge. Inflating your tires from an unregulated air source could overinflate
them, resulting in a burst tire and/or personal injury.
Incline Information
More and more buildings have ramps with specified degrees of inclination, designed for easy and safe access.
Some ramps may have turning switchbacks (180-degree turns) that require you to have good cornering skills on
your power chair.
n Proceed with extreme caution as you approach the downgrade of a ramp or other incline.
n Take wide swings with your power chair’s front wheels around any tight corners. If you do that, the power
chair’s rear wheels will follow a wide arc, not cut the corner short, and not bump into or get hung up on any
railing corners.
n When driving down a ramp, keep the power chair’s speed adjustment set to the slowest speed setting to
ensure a safely controlled descent. See VIII. “Operation.”
n Avoid sudden stops and starts.
When climbing an incline, try to keep your power chair moving. If you must stop, start up again slowly and then
accelerate cautiously. When driving down an incline, set your power chair to the slowest setting and drive in the
forward direction only. If your power chair starts to move down the incline faster than you anticipated or desired,
allow it to come to a complete stop by releasing the joystick, then push the joystick forward slightly to ensure a
safely controlled descent.

II.
SAFETY
WARNING! When climbing an incline, do not zigzag or drive at an angle up the face of the
incline. Drive your power chair straight up the incline. This greatly reduces the possibility
of a tip or a fall. Always exercise extreme caution when negotiating an incline.
WARNING! You should not travel up or down a potentially hazardous incline (i.e., areas
covered with snow, ice, cut grass, or wet leaves).
WARNING! When on any sort of an incline or decline, never place the power chair in
freewheel mode while seated on it or standing next to it. Doing so may result in personal
injury and/or damage to your power chair.
WARNING! Never travel down an incline backwards. This may result in personal injury.
WARNING! Even though your power chair is capable of climbing slopes greater than those illustrated in figure 1, do not, under any circumstances, exceed the incline guidelines or any other
specifications presented in this manual. Doing so could cause instability in your power chair, resulting in personal injury and/or damage to your power chair.
In compliance with the Americans with Disabilities Act of 1990, all handicap public access ramps are required to
have a maximum slope of 5°. Therefore, Pride recommends that the maximum slope of an incline you attempt to
safely ascend or descend on your power chair does not exceed 5°. See figure 1.
WARNING! Any attempt to climb or descend a slope steeper than 5° may put your power
chair in an unstable position and cause it to tip, resulting in personal injury.
Fig. 1. Maximum Safe Angle (Ascending and Descending)
Braking Information
Your power chair is equipped with two powerful brake systems:
1. Regenerative — uses electricity to rapidly slow the vehicle when the joystick returns to the center/stop position.
2. Disc Park Brake — activates mechanically after regenerative braking slows the vehicle to near stop, or when
power is removed from the system for any reason.
Cornering Information
While your power chair is equipped with rear caster wheels in back and anti-tip wheels in front, excessively high
cornering speeds can still create the possibility of tipping. Factors which affect the possibility of tipping include, but
are not limited to: cornering speed, steering angle (how sharply you are turning), uneven road surfaces, inclined
road surfaces, riding from an area of low traction to an area of high traction (such as passing from a grassy area to
a paved area – especially at high speed while turning), and abrupt directional changes. High cornering speeds are
not recommended. If you feel that you may tip over in a corner, reduce your speed and steering angle (i.e., lessen
the sharpness of the turn) to prevent your power chair from tipping.

Jet1 HD/Rev H/Feb03
II.
SAFETY
WARNING! When cornering sharply, reduce your speed. This greatly reduces the possibility of a tip or fall. To avoid personal injury and/or property damage, always exercise common sense when cornering.
Outdoor Driving Surfaces
Your power chair is designed to provide optimum stability under normal driving conditions—dry, 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. Feel free to use your power chair safely on lawns and in park areas.
n Reduce your power chair’s speed when driving on uneven terrain and/or soft surfaces.
n Avoid tall grass that can entangle the running gear.
n Avoid loosely packed gravel and sand.
n If you feel unsure about a driving surface, avoid that surface.
Freewheel Mode
Your power chair is equipped with a manual freewheel lever to allow for manual maneuverability by a trained
attendant. For more information about how to place your power chair into and out of freewheel mode, see IV.
“The Jet 1 HD.”
WARNING! Do not use your power chair in freewheel mode without an attendant present.
Personal injury may result.
WARNING! Do not attempt to personally place your power chair in freewheel mode while
seated on it. Personal injury may result. Ask an attendant for assistance if necessary.
WARNING! Do not place your power chair in freewheel mode while on an incline. The
chair could roll uncontrollably on its own, causing personal injury.
Stationary Obstacles (Steps, Curbs, etc.)
Proceed with extreme caution when driving near raised surfaces, unprotected ledges and/or drop-offs (curbs,
porches, stairs, etc.). The correct method for approaching a curb is illustrated in figure 2.
WARNING! Do not attempt to have your power chair climb or descend an obstacle that is
higher than two inches unless you have the assistance of an attendant.
WARNING! Do not attempt to have your power chair proceed backward down any step,
curb, or other obstacle. This may cause the power chair to tip and cause personal injury.

SAFETY
Figure 2. Curb Approach (Correct and Incorrect)
Public Streets and Roadways
WARNING! You should not operate your power chair on public streets and roadways. Be
aware that it may be difficult for traffic to see you when you are seated on your power
chair. Obey all local pedestrian traffic rules. Wait until your path is clear of traffic, and
then proceed with extreme caution.
Stairs and Escalators
Power chairs are not designed to travel up or down stairs or escalators. Always use an elevator.
WARNING! Never use your power chair to negotiate steps or escalators. You may cause
injury to yourself and to others and/or damage your power chair.
Doors
n Determine if the door opens toward or away from you.
n Drive your power chair gently and slowly forward to push the door open. Or drive your power chair gently
and slowly backward to pull the door open.
Elevators
Modern elevators have a door edge safety mechanism that, when pushed, reopens the elevator door(s).
n If you are in the doorway of an elevator when the door(s) begin to close, push on the rubber door edge or
allow the rubber door edge to contact the power chair and the door will reopen.
n Use care that pocketbooks, packages, or power chair accessories do not become caught in elevator doors.
EMI & RFI
Laboratory tests performed by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) have shown that radio waves can cause
unintended motion of electric mobility vehicles. Radio waves are a form of electromagnetic energy (EM). When
EM adversely affects the operation of an electronic device, it is called Electromagnetic Interference (EMI) or
Radio Frequency Interference (RFI). For more information, see III. “EMI/RFI.”

SAFETY
Lift/Elevation Products
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.
Motor Vehicle Transport
Currently, there are no standards approved for tie-down systems in a moving vehicle of any type to transport a
person while seated in a power chair.
Transfers
Transferring onto and off of your power chair requires a good sense of balance. Always have an attendant or
healthcare professional present while learning to properly transfer yourself.
To eliminate the possibility of injury, Pride recommends that you or a trained attendant perform the following tasks
before attempting a transfer:
n Turn the power off. See VIII. “Operation.”
n Ensure your power chair is not in freewheel mode. See IV. “The Jet 1 HD.”
n Turn both caster wheels toward the transfer destination to improve power chair stability during transfer.
n Make sure both armrests are flipped up or removed from your power chair.
n Flip the footrest up, or move the leg rests aside; this will help to keep your feet from getting caught on the
footrest or the leg rests during the transfer.
n Reduce the distance between your power chair and the object you are transferring onto.
WARNING! Before transferring, position yourself as far back as possible in the power
chair seat to prevent the power chair from tipping forward during transfer and causing
injury.
WARNING! Avoid using your armrests for weight bearing purposes. Such use may cause
the power chair to tip and cause personal injury.
WARNING! Avoid putting all of your weight on the footrest. Such use may cause the power
chair to tip and cause personal injury.
Positioning Belts
Your authorized Pride provider, therapist(s), and other healthcare professionals are responsible for determining
your requirement for a positioning belt in order to operate your power chair safely.
WARNING! If you require a positioning belt to safely operate your power chair, make sure
it is fastened securely. Serious personal injury may result if you fall from the power chair.
WARNING! The positioning belt is not designed for use as a seat belt in a motor vehicle.
Nor is your Jazzy suitable for use as a seat in any vehicle. Anyone traveling in a vehicle
should be properly belted into seats approved by the vehicle manufacturer.
WARNING! Do not sit on your power chair while it is in a moving vehicle. Personal injury
and/or property damage may result.

II.
SAFETY
WARNING! Always be sure your power chair and its batteries are properly secured when it
is being transported. Failure to do so may result in personal injury and/or damage to your
power chair.
Inclement Weather Precautions
WARNING! Pride recommends that you do not operate your power chair in icy or slippery
conditions or on salted surfaces (i.e., walks or roads). Such use may adversely affect the
performance and safety of your power chair, resulting in an accident and personal injury.
WARNING! Do not expose your power chair to any type of moisture at any time (rain, snow,
mist, or wash). Such exposure can damage your power chair. Never operate your power
chair if it has been exposed to moisture until it has dried thoroughly.
Reaching and Bending
Never reach, lean, or bend while driving your power chair. If it is absolutely necessary to reach, lean, or bend while
seated on your power chair, it is important to maintain a stable center of gravity and keep the power chair from
tipping. Pride recommends that the power chair user determine his/her personal limitations and practice bending
and reaching in the presence of a qualified healthcare professional.
WARNING! Do not bend, lean, or reach for objects if you have to pick them up from the floor by
reaching down between your knees. Movements such as these may change your center of gravity
and the weight distribution of the power chair. This may cause your power chair to tip, possibly
resulting in personal injury. Keep your hands away from the tires when driving.
Batteries
In addition to following the warnings below, be sure to comply with all other battery handling information. For
more information about your power chair’s batteries, see IX. “Batteries and Charging.”
WARNING! Power chair batteries are heavy. See specifications table. If you are unable to lift that
much weight, be sure to get help. Lifting beyond your capacity can result in personal injury.
WARNING! Battery posts, terminals, and related accessories contain lead and lead compounds.
Wash hands after handling.
WARNING! Always protect the batteries from freezing and never charge a frozen battery. Charging
a frozen battery may result in personal injury and/or damage to the battery.
Preventing Unintended movement
WARNING! If you anticipate being seated in a stationary position for an extended period of time,
turn off the power. This will prevent unexpected motion from inadvertent joystick contact. This will
also eliminate the possibility of unintended chair movement from electromagnetic (EM) sources.
Failure to do so may result in personal injury.

Prescription Drugs/Physical Limitations
Users must exercise care and common sense when operating a power chair. This includes awareness of safety
issues when taking prescribed or over-the-counter drugs or when the user has specific physical limitations.
WARNING! Consult your physician if you are taking prescribed or over-the-counter medication or if
you have certain physical limitations. Some medications and limitations may impair your ability to
operate your power chair in a safe manner.
Alcohol
The power chair user must exercise care and common sense when operating his/her power chair. This includes
awareness of safety issues while under the influence of alcohol.
WARNING! Do not operate your power chair while you are under the influence of alcohol, as this
may impair your ability to operate your power chair in a safe manner.

EMI/RFI
Laboratory tests performed by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) have shown that radio waves can cause
unintended motion of power chairs. Radio waves are a form of electromagnetic energy. When this energy adversely affects the operation of an electronic device, it is called Electromagnetic Interference (EMI) or Radio
Frequency Interference (RFI).
WARNING! Radio waves may interfere with the control of power chairs.
Frequently Asked Questions (FAQS)
The following FAQs summarize what you should know about EMI/RFI. Use this information to minimize the risk
that EMI/RFI will affect your power chair.
Where do radio waves come from?
Radio waves are emitted from the antennas of cellular phones, mobile two-way radios (such as walkie-talkies),
radio stations, TV stations, amateur radio (HAM) transmitters, wireless computer links, microwave sources, and
paging transmitters. Radio waves are a form of electromagnetic energy (EM). Because electromagnetic energy is
more intense closer to the transmitting antenna (source of emission), the EM fields from two-way radios are of
special concern to power chair users.
If my power chair is affected by EMI/RFI, what kind of motion should I expect?
This is hard to predict. It would depend on a number of factors:
n Strength of the radio waves
n Construction of the power chair
n Position of the power chair (whether it is on level ground or on an incline)
n Whether or not the power chair is in motion
An affected power chair’s movement can be erratic. It may move by itself or come to a sudden stop. Furthermore,
it is possible for EMI/RFI to unexpectedly release the brakes on a power chair. Some intense sources of EMI/RFI
can even damage the control system of the Jet.
Is there any way to know for sure whether radio waves are responsible for the unintended motion
of my power chair?
Unfortunately, interference from radio wave sources may be difficult to recognize, since the signals from these
sources are invisible and may be intermittent. However, the FDA recommends that you report all incidents of
unintended motion or brake release to the power chair manufacturer, and, if possible, note whether there was a
radio wave source nearby at the time of the incident.
Has anyone been hurt from erratic, unintended motion of power chairs?
The FDA has reports of injuries that resulted from the apparent uncontrolled motion of power chairs. However, it
is unclear how many of these incidents were actually caused by radio wave interference.

Jet1 HD/Rev H/Feb03
I I I .
E M I / R F I
Are all power chairs susceptible to EMI/RFI?
Each make and model of chair differs in its ability to resist electromagnetic interference. That is, each has a
particular level of “immunity” to interference, measured in volts per meter (Vm). A higher immunity level offers
greater protection. In other words, a power chair with a high immunity level is less likely to be affected by a strong
radio source than one with a low immunity level.
What is the FDA doing about the problem?
The FDA has written to the manufacturers of power chairs and requested that they test their new products to be
sure that they provide a reasonable degree of immunity against EMI/RFI. The letter states that power chairs should
have an immunity of at least 20 V/m. This provides a reasonable degree of protection against the common sources
of EMI/RFI.
The FDA has also requested that these manufacturers clearly label their products with the immunity level, or state
that the immunity level is not known. The labeling and informational material supplied with the power chair must
explain what the immunity level means, and the labeling or informational material must warn users about the possibility of EMI/RFI and how to avoid it. In addition, the FDA has recommended that manufacturers establish an
educational program to inform users of power chairs, and their caregivers, about the problems associated with
EMI/RFI, and the actions they can take to minimize the risk.
What can I do to find out if my power chair is likely to be affected by EMI/RFI?
If you’ve had your power chair for a long time and haven’t experienced any unintended motion, it is not likely that
you will have problems in the future. But it is always possible that problems could arise if you are close to a source
of radio waves. Therefore, it is very important to be alert to this possibility. The Jet meets or exceeds an immunity
level of at least 20 V/m.
What can I do to reduce the risk that my power chair could be affected by EMI/RFI?
Here are some precautions you can take:
n Do not turn on or use hand-held personal communications devices, such as citizens band (CB) radios and
cellular phones, while the power chair is on.
n Be aware of nearby transmitters, such as radio or TV stations and hand-held or mobile two-way radios, and
try not to come close to them. For example, if you are in a power chair with an immunity level of 20 V/m, you
should remain at least three feet from a hand-held two-way radio and ten feet from a mobile two-way radio.
n Be aware that adding accessories and/or components, or modifying the power chair may make it more susceptible to interference from radio wave sources. There is no easy way to evaluate their effect upon the overall
immunity of the power chair.
What should I do if my power chair moves unexpectedly?
If unintended motion or brake release occurs, turn the power chair off as soon as it is safe to do so. Call Pride at
800-424-8205 to report the incident.

power cord receptacle, the main circuit breaker, the controller connector, and the charger inhibit connector are all
located on the electronics tray.
Ammeter: The ammeter displays the charger’s current output in amps. See IX. “Batteries and Charging.”
Main Circuit Breaker: The main circuit breaker is a safety feature built into your Jet. When the batteries and the
motors are heavily strained (e.g., from excessive loads), the main circuit breaker trips to prevent damage to the
motors and the electronics. If the circuit trips, allow your Jet to “rest” for approximately one minute. Next, push in
the circuit breaker button, turn on the controller, and continue normal operation. If the main circuit breaker continues to trip repeatedly, contact your authorized Pride provider.
Onboard Battery Charger AC Power Cord Receptacle: This is where the AC power cord plugs into the
onboard charger.
Controller Connector: This is where the controller connects to the power base.
Charger Inhibit Connector: Your power chair is equipped with a charger inhibit connector. The charger inhibit
enables the onboard charger to disable the controller during charging. The charger inhibit connector is coded with
colorted dots. The dots are positioned so that you can align the flat side of the male connector with the flat side of
the female connector before making the connection.
CAUTION! Failure to properly align the connectors can result in damage to the controller, the
charger harness, and the connectors.

Thermal Rollback
The VSI controller is equipped with a thermal rollback circuit. The circuit monitors the temperature of the controller, which roughly translates to motor temperature. In the event that the VSI controller becomes excessively hot
(above 140° F), motor current (amperage) is reduced. For every degree above 140° F, the motor current limit is
reduced by .55 amps until the VSI controller reaches 158° F, at which time the current output is reduced to zero.
This reduces your power chair’s “power,” which could also reduce your power chair’s speed, and allows the
electrical components and motors to cool down. When the temperature returns to a safe level, your power chair
resumes its normal operation.

BATTERIES
AND
CHARGING
BATTERIES
The Jet uses two long-lasting, 12-volt, deep-cycle batteries. These batteries are sealed and maintenance free
batteries. Since they are sealed, there is no need to check the electrolyte (fluid) level. Deep-cycle batteries are
designed to handle a longer and deeper discharge. Though they are similar in appearance to automotive batteries,
they are not interchangeable. Automotive batteries are not designed to handle a long, deep discharge, and also are
unsafe for use in power chairs.
WARNING! Battery posts, terminals, and related accessories contain lead and lead compounds.
Wash hands after handling.
WARNING! Always protect batteries from freezing temperatures and never charge a frozen battery.
This damges the battery and may cause personal injury. Attempting to charge a battery in freezing
conditions does not prevent a battery from freezing.
Charging the Batteries
The battery charger is essential in providing long life for your Jet batteries. See figure 26. The battery charger is
designed to optimize your Jet’s performance by charging the batteries safely, quickly, and easily. The charging
system consists of the charger, the charger fuse, and the ammeter. See figures 26 and 27. The onboard charger is
located underneath the electronics tray. The ammeter is located on the electronics tray for easy viewing. The
charger has an in-line fuse that protects the ammeter. The ammeter indicates the rate of charge necessary to fully
recharge the batteries. It is also a good indication of whether or not the charger is working. The ammeter and the
charger are only functional when the charger power cord is plugged into a wall outlet.
WARNING! Never use an extension cord to plug in your battery charger. Plug the charger directly
into a properly wired standard wall outlet.
WARNING! You must recharge your power chair batteries with the supplied onboard or off-board
charging system. Do not use an automotive-type battery charger.
To charge the batteries using the onboard charger:
1. Position the rear of your Jet close to a standard wall outlet.
2. Be certain the controller power is turned off and the freewheel levers are in the engaged position. See IV. “The

3. Remove the battery charger cord from the back pouch of your Jet and plug it into the battery charger AC
power cord receptacle located on the electronics tray. See figure 27.
4. Extend the charger AC power cord and plug it into the wall outlet. The Jet incorporates an inhibit function that
disables the power chair when the charger is plugged into a wall outlet.
5. The ammeter indicates how much charge is needed to fully charge the batteries. Wait about a minute for the
charger to warm up. The ammeter may move as high as 5.5 amps, then gradually move back down to 0 amps
as the batteries charge.
6. We recommend you charge the batteries for 8 to 14 hours. As the batteries charge, the ammeter needle slowly
drops to 0. When the batteries are fully charged, the needle vibrates on or about the 0 mark on the ammeter
scale.
7. When your Jet 1’s batteries are fully charged, you can unplug the AC power cord from the wall outlet, wind it
up using the hook and loop strap, and place the cord back into the Jet’s back pouch.
OFF-BOARD Charger
To charge the batteries using the off-board charger:
1. Position your Jet next to a standard wall outlet.
2. Be certain the controller power is turned off.
3. Remove the run plug located on the electronics tray. This activates the inhibit function.
4. Plug the 3-pin extension cable to the charger, then into the electronics tray connector.
5. Plug the charger into the wall outlet.
6. The ammeter indicates how much charge is needed to fully charge the batteries. Wait about a minute for the
charger to warm up. The ammeter should move all the way up to 5 amps, then gradually move back down to
zero amps.
7. We recommend you charge the batteries for 8 to 14 hours. As the batteries charge, the ammeter needle will
slowly drop to zero. When the batteries are fully charged, the needle vibrates on or about zero on the ammeter
scale.
8. When your Jet’s batteries are fully charged, disconnect the charger cord from the wall outlet.
9. Disconnect the charger from the rear electronics tray.
10. Reconnect the run plug into its connector.
NOTE: If the run plug is not reconnected, your Jet will not operate.
Battery Break-in
To break in new batteries for maximum efficiency:
1. Fully recharge any new battery prior to its initial use. This brings the battery up to about 90% of its peak
performance level.
2. Operate your Jet throughout the house and yard. Move slowly at first, and don’t stray too far until you become
accustomed to the controls and break in the batteries.
3. Give the batteries another full charge of 8 to 14 hours and operate your Jet again. The batteries will now
perform at over 90% of their potential.
4. After four or five charging cycles, the batteries will top off at 100% charge and last for an extended period.

Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs)
How does the charger work?
The battery charger takes the standard wall outlet voltage of 120 VAC (alternating current) and converts it to 24
VDC (direct current). The Jet batteries use direct current to run your power chair. When the battery voltage is low,
the charger works harder to charge the battery. This is why the charging ammeter initially reads five or more amps.
As the battery voltage approaches full charge, the charger doesn’t work as hard to complete the charging cycle.
This explains why the charging ammeter drops as it approaches a full charge. When the battery is fully charged, the
amperage from the charger is nearly at zero. This is how the charger maintains a charge but does not overcharge
the battery.
Can I use a different battery charger?
You should use the charger supplied with the Jet. It is the safest, most efficient tool to charge the batteries. We do
not recommend using other types of chargers (e.g., an automotive battery charger). Your Jet’s charger will not
operate after the batteries have been discharged to nearly zero voltage. If this happens, call your authorized Pride
provider for assistance.
How often must I charge the batteries?
Many factors come into play when deciding how often to charge the batteries. You may use your Jet all day on a
daily basis or you may not use it for weeks at a time.
n Daily Use
If you use your Jet on a daily basis, charge the batteries as soon as you are finished. Your Jet will be ready each
morning to give you a full day’s service. It is recommended that you charge the batteries 8 to 14 hours after
daily use. Do not charge the batteries for more than 24 hours at a charging cycle.
n Infrequent Use
If you use your Jet infrequently (once a week or less), you should charge the batteries at least once per week
for 12 to 14 hours.
NOTE: Keep your batteries fully charged and avoid deeply discharging your batteries. Do not charge the
batteries for more than 24 hours at a charging cycle.
How can I get maximum range or distance per charge?
Rarely do you have an ideal driving situation such as smooth, flat, hard terrain with no wind, hills, or curves. More
often you are presented with hills, sidewalk cracks, uneven and loosely packed surfaces, curves, and wind. All of
these factors will affect the distance or running time per battery charge. Below are a few suggestions for obtaining
the maximum range per charge:
n Always charge the batteries fully prior to your trip.
n Plan your trip in advance to avoid inclines if possible.
n Limit baggage weight to essential items.
n Try to maintain an even speed and avoid stop-and-go driving.

BATTERIES
AND
CHARGING
What type of battery should I use?
We recommend deep-cycle batteries that are sealed and maintenance free. Both sealed lead-acid (SLA) and gel
cell are deep-cycle batteries that are similar in performance.
Use these specifications to reorder deep-cycle batteries:
Battery Specifications
(Deep-cycle sealed lead-acid or gel cell)
NF-22
12 V each
Type:
Size:
Voltage:
WARNING! Corrosive chemicals contained in batteries. Use only AGM or Gel-Cell batterioes to
reduce the risk of leakage or explosive conditions.
Why do my new batteries seem weak?
Deep-cycle batteries employ a much different chemical technology than that used in car batteries, nickel-cadmium
(nicads), or in other common battery types. Deep-cycle batteries are specifically designed to provide power, drain
down their charge, and then accept a relatively quick recharge. Lead-acid batteries should be charged as often as
possible. 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’s 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. Heat robs the charge from the battery, and
cold slows the power available and extends the time needed to recharge the battery (just as with a car battery).
It might take a few days for the temperature of the battery to stabilize and adjust to its new ambient temperature.
More importantly, it will take a few “charging cycles” (a partial drain— then a full recharge) to establish the critical
chemical balance that is essential to the battery’s peak performance and long life. It will be well worth it to take the
time to break in your battery properly.
NOTE: The useful life of a battery is quite often a reflection of the care it receives.
How can I ensure maximum battery life?
A fully charged deep-cycle battery will provide reliable performance and extended battery life. Keep your Jet’s
batteries fully charged whenever possible. Batteries that are regularly and deeply discharged, infrequently charged,
or stored without a full charge may be permanently damaged causing unreliable Jet operation and limited
battery life.

How should I store my Jet and its batteries?
If you do not use your Jet regularly, we recommend maintaining battery vitality by charging the batteries at least
once per week.
If you do not plan on using your Jet for an extended period, fully charge the batteries prior to storage. Disconnect
the battery harnesses and store the Jet in a warm, dry environment. Avoid temperature extremes, such as freezing
and excessively hot conditions, and never attempt to charge a frozen battery. A cold or frozen battery should be
warmed for several days prior to recharging.
NOTE: If you are storing a Jet for an extended period of time, you may wish to block the unit up with
several boards under the frame. This will keep the tires off the ground and prevent the possibility of flat
spots developing.
What about public transportation?
Sealed lead-acid and gel cell batteries are designed for application in power chairs and other mobility vehicles.
These batteries are Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) approved, allowing safe transportation on aircraft,
buses, and trains, as there is no danger of spillage or leakage. We suggest you contact the carrier’s ticket counter
in advance to determine that carrier’s specific requirements.
What about shipping?
If you wish to use a freight company to ship your Jet to your final destination, repack your Jet in the original
shipping container and ship the batteries in separate boxes.

CARE
AND
MAINTENANCE
ROUTINE MAINTENANCE
The Jet is a sophisticated power chair. Like any motorized vehicle, it requires routine maintenance checks. You can
perform some of these checks, but others require assistance from your authorized Pride provider. Preventive
maintenance is very important. If you follow the maintenance checks in this section as scheduled, you can help
ensure that your Jet gives you years of trouble-free operation. If you have any doubt as to your Jet’s care or
operation, contact your authorized Pride provider.
The Jet, like most electrical equipment, is susceptible to damage from the elements. Avoid damp
areas of any kind. Direct exposure to water or dampness could cause the power chair to malfunction electronically and mechanically. Water can cause electrical components to corrode and the
chair’s frame to rust.
Should your Jet come in contact with water:
1. Dry your Jet as much as possible with a dry towel.
2. Allow your Jet to sit in a warm dry place for twelve hours to allow unseen water to evaporate.
3. Check the joystick operation and the brakes before using your Jet again.
4. If any inconsistencies are found, take your Jet to your authorized Pride provider.
Temperature
Some of the parts of your Jet are susceptible to extreme changes in temperature. Always keep your Jet between
the temperatures of 18° F and 122° F.
n In extremely cold temperatures the batteries may freeze. The specific temperature at which they will freeze
depends on a number of factors, such as battery charge, usage, and composition of the batteries (e.g., sealed
lead-acid or gel cell).
n Temperatures above 122° F may cause your Jet to operate at a reduced speed. This is a safety feature built
into the controller that helps prevent damage to the motor and other electrical components. See VIII. “Operation.”
General Guidelines
n Avoid knocking or bumping the controller, especially the joystick.
n Avoid prolonged exposure of your Jet to extreme conditions, such as heat, cold, or moisture.
n Keep the controller clean.
n Check all controller connectors on the electronics tray to ensure that they are all tight and secured properly.
Also check the charger inhibit connector.
n When the battery gauge is completely lit, the batteries are fully charged, and the controller and the electrical
system are OK.
n If two red bars on the battery gauge are blinking slowly, the batteries are low and need to be charged, but the
controller and the electrical system are OK.
n If the battery gauge is blinking rapidly, the controller has detected a fault in either its own circuits or in your Jet’s
circuits. See VIII. “Operation.”
WARNING! Make sure your tires are inflated to 30-35 psi. Do not underinflate or overinflate your
tires. Low pressure may result in loss of control, and overinflated tires may burst. Serious personal
injury may result. Overinflating tires can cause them to explode and can result in personal injury.
WARNING! Do not use a high pressure hose to inflate your tires.

CARE
AND
MAINTENANCE
n Use a rubber conditioner on the tire sidewalls to help preserve them.
WARNING!Never use a rubber conditioner on the tread area of the tires; doing so may make the
tires slippery and cause your Jet to skid. Check for wear.
n The body shroud has been sprayed with a clear sealant coating. You can apply a light coat of car wax to help
it retain its high-gloss appearance.
n Check all electrical connections. Make sure they are tight and are not corroded. Batteries must sit flat within
the battery well, with the battery terminals facing inward, towards each other. Refer to the frame decal for the
correct wiring layout.
n All wheel bearings are prelubricated and sealed. They require no subsequent lubrication.
Daily Checks
n With the controller turned off, check the joystick. Make sure it is not bent or damaged and that it returns to
center when you release it. Check the rubber boot around the base of the joystick for damage. Visually inspect
the boot. Do not handle or try to repair it. See your authorized Pride provider if there is a problem.
n Visually inspect the controller harnesses. Make sure that they are not frayed or cut or have any wires exposed.
See your authorized Pride provider if there is a problem with any of these harnesses.
Weekly Checks
n Disconnect and inspect the controller and the charger harnesses from the electronics tray. Look for corrosion.
Contact your authorized Pride provider if necessary.
n Ensure that all parts of the controller system are securely fastened to your Jet. Do not overtighten any screws.
n Calibrate the joystick if a noticeable difference in performance is detected or if the joystick does not operate
properly. To calibrate the joystick, power off the unit, place the joystick in the center position, and power the
unit back on. If a problem still exists with your joystick’s performance, contact your authorized Pride provider.
n Check the brakes. This test should be carried out on a level surface with at least three feet of clearance around
your Jet.
To

3.
check the brakes:
Turn on the controller and turn down the speed.
After one second, check the battery gauge. Make sure that it remains on.
Slowly push the joystick forward until you hear the electric brakes click. Immediately release the joystick. You
must be able to hear each electric brake operating within a few seconds of joystick movement. Repeat this test
three times, pushing the joystick backwards, then left, and then right.
Monthly Checks
n Check that the anti-tip wheels are not rubbing the ground when you are operating the Jet. Adjust them as
necessary. See VI. “Comfort Adjustments.”
n Check for extreme wear on the anti-tip wheels. Replace them as necessary.
n Check for drive tire wear. See your authorized Pride provider for repair.
n Check the rear casters for wear. Replace them as necessary.
n Check the rear forks for damage or fluttering which indicates that they may need to be adjusted or have the
bearings replaced. See your authorized Pride provider for repair.
n Keep your Jet clean and free of foreign material, such as mud, dirt, hair, food, drink, etc.

The electric motors that power your Jet use carbon brushes. These brushes may become susceptible to wear over
a long period of time. The motor brushes are the two contacts located inside the motor assembly that supply
power to the motor. They are designed to provide several thousand hours of operation. However, if the brushes
become dirty with carbon deposits or wear out, the motor will run poorly or not at all.
CAUTION! If inspection determines excessive wear on the brushes, they must be replaced or
motor damage will result. Failure to maintain the brushes could void the warranty.
