Just a thought...it might be cheaper to get another charger (or at least the cord that goes from the charger to the scooter), splice the ends, and bi-weekly or so charge the stored batteries by stripping the end of the other charger. I cannot think of any other way to preserve the batteries, which are not cheap, because even if the scooter is not driven they batteries need to be charged regularly. :)

You can't do it with a car battery charger as it takes a 24 volt charger and it has to be designed to charge the sealed batteries that go in scooters and power chairs or you will blow the batteries up!

Order another battery case and swap the battery packs on the scooter with the spare pack once a week. Sealed batteries do not store well and need to be charged fully at least once a month to ensure long life. These batteries aren't cheap, and it's worth keeping them in shape.

Revo pride 2 year old scooter never used will not take charge


Well I hope I can be of Some help, If the batterys on a scooter are not charged daily after use they will deplete, in other words loss there power/charge.so each time you miss a charge the batteries will start lossing there life expectancy.that is why it Is very important to not miss a charge.When your batteries dont take a charge, that's basically saying you need new batterie. One way to make sure Your batteries need change and not your charger .... First trickle charge the batteries Second install the batteries back on the scooter Third plug in your charger it should kick on Good luck

The airline broke off the key in the scooter


Your local pride dealer should be able to supply a new key. The key that fits the GoGo Elite Traveller is the same key that fits the whole of the pride range of scooters.
