Wheelchair "NEW Battery" Option
Wheelchair batteries should be recharged at least once every 2-3 months when they are not in use, otherwise they may permanently lose their ability to hold a full charge. NEW batteries that are used and recharged regularly can be recharged as many as 300 times.
While it is not possible to accurately determine the condition of used batteries, we do "load test" used batteries, and ship only those used batteries that test in "good condition".
If you want us to install a set of 2 NEW batteries in your used wheelchair before we ship it to you, we'll pay about half the cost, and install them for you at no charge. Please call us to determine which set of batteries you'll need. Your share of the new battery cost will be:
- 2 Group 24 (12V75AH or similar) Batteries, installed: $185
- 2 Group 22 (12V55AH or similar) Batteries, installed: $130
- 2 U1 (12V33AH or similar) Batteries, installed: $80
- (Battery prices may be revised at any time, to reflect our latest costs.)
To achieve peak performance and longest life, NEW batteries must be properly "broken in" after you receive them, by carefully following the directions provided in the Pride Mobility manual that we include with your used wheelchair.
If you do not choose this "NEW Battery" option, then the used batteries that you receive are sold to you "AS-IS", with absolutely no warranty.See also our article: More About Wheelchair Batteries.
