Batteries for Wheelchairs

Posted by Replacement Battery Store on

Batteries for Wheelchairs





Electric wheelchairs are much heavier than manual wheelchairs due to the carrier frame which is stronger in order to support the battery and the engine. 


Wheelchairs require a special type of deep cycle battery. It is recommended that you charge the wheelchair batteries every night after usage in order to keep them fully charged.


Modern wheelchair models have automatic chargers therefore, the risk of overcharging is minimized. If you only use the wheelchair occasionally, the battery should be charged at least once a month. The battery life of your wheelchair depends on its use -they usually last up to 3-5 years. 


There are two common types of batteries - GEL and AGM.


On the one hand, Gel batteries contain a mixture of sulfuric acid, pure water, and phosphoric acid that forms the gel liquid. Since there is no liquid in the battery, they don’t run out and don’t need so much maintenance. In addition, they have a longer lifespan and can work very well at lower temperatures.


On the other hand, AGM batteries have an absorbent glass mat enclosed between plates, saturated with electrolytic acid, which doesn't spill. This "sandwich" allows for even distribution of the electrolyte over the plates and reduces the likelihood of damage to the battery due to shocks and vibrations.


According to IATA, you can take these 2 types of batteries with you onboard (when traveling by air).


When choosing an electric wheelchair battery, be sure to use the reputed brands of licensed vendors, such as ReplacementBatteryStore.
