Plain and simple, not all mobility scooter and power wheelchair batteries are the same, and you shouldn’t settle for a cheap substitute. Although a wet/acid design is initially less expensive and can provide about 10 percent more running time per charge than a gel/sealed battery of equal size, a wet lead/acid battery has a much shorter service life, requires regular maintenance and poses a much higher safety risk because of potential battery acid contact or explosion.
An MK gel/sealed battery, instead provides an inherently safer, truly maintenance-free design. MK batteries provide a significantly longer life, averaging 1 to 2 years or longer when properly maintained – and are available in models approved by major airlines and other public transportation providers.
You know what happens with the cheap knock off batteries. Their running time is short, do you want to go through the hassle of replacing your electric wheelchairs or Electric Mobility scooter batteries every six months.
