Invacare has released a useful, short and interesting animation giving mobility scooter and powerchair users information on correctly charging batteries.

Featuring ‘Barry on his Invacare scooter’, the video provides a range of advice, including how long to correctly charge a battery, the amount of charging cycles required to reach optimum capacity and tips on getting the most out of a battery when using a scooter or powerchair.

The company hopes the advice will help customers better understand how to get the most out of their scooters and that by maintaining the ‘heart’ of their scooters and powerchairs, it can prolong the life of them.

Graham Silverthorn, Product Specialist at Invacare, commented: “There’s always a need to use a product quickly and many of us are guilty of not always reading the instructions thoroughly. However, this animation shows that by following some simple methods and best practice for charging batteries, it can have a dramatic effect on the performance of a product like a scooter or a powerchair.”
