What is the best way to look after your powerchair batteries?

At Invacare, we spend a great deal of time at the design phase to ensure that our powerchairs have an excellent overall life span. But in order for you to feel the benefit of that, the powerchair needs to be properly maintained and looked after – starting with the batteries.

Sometimes your powerchair battery can be out of sight and therefore out of mind, but it is the heart of your chair. Just like your own heart, batteries work hard to keep your chair in motion. And if something goes wrong with the battery, the whole chair can be affected by decreased performance or decreased reliability.

There is a lot of mis-information out there about batteries, so we wanted to create something that would help our users and answer the question: “What is the best way to look after my powerchair batteries?”.

Watching our new video will give you tips on prolonging the life of your battery, helping to make your chair more reliable and durable, performing better for longer and maintaining the levels of independence you can expect from an Invacare powerchair. Take a look at the video here.

Not forgetting our scooters, we also have a battery care video for our renowned range which you can view here.
